The Downtown is a reliable companion on your tour through the morning or evening rushhour. The waterproof bike briefcase provides secure cargo carrying plus reliable protection of files, documents and laptops up to 15.4“. A hands-free way to carry your everyday digital and off line essentials, this waterproof bike briefcase with lid closure can be quickly mounted and taken off the rack single-handed. It features an extra wide padded shoulder strap and additional carry handle for comfortable transport. Edge protectors and base feet on the rear and bottom ensure optimal protection of the bag. Two large 3M Scotchlite reflectors and a reflective ORTLIEB logo and handle ensure safety in the dark and in bad conditions. Downtown can be mounted on the right or left side of the rack. The bag is available in two versions: with QL2.1 or QL3.1 mounting system.
Ortlieb Downtown waterproof rear panniers are Ortlieb's top-of-the-line panniers with the roller style closure.
Each pannier has an internal pocket hanging from the inside of the back panel-awesome!
These panniers will hold a LOT of gear.
Plus series panniers are made from very durable Cordura fabric with a substantial inner, highly durable, thermoplastic waterproof coating.
All seams are high frequency welded, providing excellent waterproofing along with narrow manufacturing tolerances. You will be impressed by the high quality workmanship!
Ortlieb Downtown panniers may even keep your gear dry during stream crossings when properly closed (the level of waterproofing depends on how many times you roll the top).
Ortlieb panniers utilize the QL2 Quick Lock mounting system, adjustable without any tools, with automatic opening and closing by lifting the handle.
The QL2 system adjusts with various inserts to fit rack rails from 8mm to 16mm diameter.
Adjustable hooks at the base of the panniers keep the bottom mounted securely to the side of the rack.
The sliding top hooks can be repositioned to allow precise placement on the rack top rails.
This can also help move the panniers toward the rear of your rack, providing better heel clearance while riding.
Optional extra top hooks can be added to reinforce the mounting system when you take your panniers off-road.
