Ortlieb is the standard in waterproof bags. Welded seams, quality materials and extreme waterproof coating; these German-made bags are perfect for everything from the daily commute to the most demanding adventures.
Ortlieb was founded in 1982 in Nuremberg Germany, originally specialising in waterproof bike panniers. They are now considered the benchmark in waterproof carry of all descriptions.
Using materials developed for particular applications and a specialised waterproof coating, their bags are waterproof up to 100,000mm. This high degree of waterproofing is achieved using a process of high frequency seam welding. This combination of specialised materials, quality hardware and meticulous construction makes Ortlieb bags tough enough to handle anything you can throw at them.
When the materials used are so tough, the weakest point of the bag becomes the opening, Ortlieb uses only proven closure systems and tests each to the extreme to ensure the gear inside is always protected.
With a strong focus on sustainability as well as quality, Ortlieb's philosophy is the commitment to resource conservation along each stage of their production process and minimisation of their carbon footprint. Each Ortlieb bag is not only an example of meticulous construction but also a case of applied sustainability.
With a five year warranty on all their bags, function and quality is the sign of an Ortlieb bag. A tagline as simple as 'Waterproof' tells you everything you need to know when purchasing one of their bags.
