We just know you are out there taking pictures of your amazing cycling adventures. We want to see them! The best ones will be shared on the relevant section of this blog: Bike Cargo Trailers, Bike Touring, Bike Technology and Family Cycling.

Ortlieb Office Bag Large Classic ‘ Zinger & Quick Review

ortlieb-office-commuter-bag-large-classic-white-stockToday’s Zinger is the Ortlieb Office Bag Large Classic.

I just sold the Vaude Wright Tarp Commuter Pannier that I was testing through our Demo Page and decided to pull this interesting pannier off of the shelf. Two things struck me right away, 1. this is a big pannier and 2. where do I put my laptop? It didn’t take me long to figure out that I could adjust the one of the two inner dividers so that I could fit my MacBook Pro in my Chrome Laptop Sleeve behind it. It took me a few minutes to get the foam bottom and side piece into place and snapped in. This continuous foam piece does a great job of giving the bag it’s defined shape, but can be easily removed if the bag needs to be folded flat.

One of the dividers seemed like a little bit much with more organization for pens and small papers than I would really use. The other set of dividers were more my speed with two main pockets. I used the other divider for sliding my 2 locks behind. I carry two locks as I use one for locking up our Extrawheel Advert Trailer down the street from our business.

The slight angled back mounting of the Ortlieb Office seemed quite good, allowing for such a large bag to be well seated on almost any bike rack. The handles were nice though, with the top handle, I doubt I’ll even bother with the shoulder strap. I am sure I will appreciate having a waterproof bag with the winter months ahead. I also liked the bold look of the classic white. The classic large version of the Ortlieb Office Bag is is also available in silver and black.

All in all, this is a great bag and I look forward to its convenience, reliability and water protection for my office stuff in the months ahead.
