    The new Ortlieb Seat-Pack QR is a waterproof saddle bag with ingenious quick-release mounting. Just what you need for a bit of bikepacking.

    Still more of a fan of a holster setup. Means you can leave the manky part attached to the bike but quickly remove the clean bit with your kit in it. Next morning just slot the dry bag back in and off you go

    Not at £150 if you’re on minimum wage !

    What happens if the fixture breaks in the middle of nowhere? Not being negative on purpose, these things happen, can’t tell if there’s a way you can use the existing straps around the rails if ever needed.

    My experience of Ortlieb stuff is that it would survive a nuclear blast but I guess the normal rules apply – make sure you’ve a couple of straps with you to make a temporary repair.

    I like the notion of a QR pack. The Revelate system seems good but needs the saddle part bolted on and therefore isn’t so convenient if using more than one bike for bikepacking. This Ortlieb system gets around that.

    I still reckon the holster/bag idea is the best though.

    Holster bag? You know you can put a dry bag in a normal seat pack don’t you? Same upside and opens up the options…

    You can also just strap a dry bag on a rack.

    But then you wouldn’t be bikepacking, you’d just be touring 😁

    Which is nowhere near as cool

    That reminds me. I still have a “a potted history of my bikepacking” thing to write 🙂

    Double bagging seems OTT when the answer always involves a dry bag anyway

    I have today ordered one, I then realised that I also have the 11 litre non QR one, in the cupboard, totally unused…. DOH 🙂 anyone want the non QR one ?
