Ortlieb Trunk-Bag





If you want a bag for the top of your rack, reach for the Ortlieb Trunk Bag. The Trunk Bag has the volume of a small pannier, with aggressive features and the typical Ortlieb high-quality engineering. Great as a commuter bag, the Trunk Bag can easily be used for your lunch and a nice wind shell, with room to spare. The Trunk Bag is completely waterproof and utilizes a TIZIP main zipper for the resilient caliber and ultimate weather protection.

The innovative Ortlieb rack adapter mounting system also comes in handy for adding a trunk bag to your touring pannier set. The rack adapter has lower rails that attach to your current rack which allow you to mount your panniers lower while attaching the Trunk Bag by clicking it securely to the top.

The Trunk-Bag is available with the Ortlieb adapter system for Rack-Lock which fits almost any rack with width from 60-160mm.

Ortlieb trunk bag

Great - easy set up on my rear rack. Easy to snap on and off.

Ortlieb Trunk Bag - 2017

Costs more, does less, doesn't fit properly.

Do-n't buy this. Go with the earlier model. This bag comes not with the mounting system and side-bag rails that the cheaper earlier model has, but with four silly little plastic clips that snap into your own rear carrier and are operated with a ****** tiny cheap plastic dongle that you will lose or break on the very first trip. The bag also hangs over most pannier carriers in such as way that it's now impossible to attach your Ortlieb side bags.

What a dumb innovation. You can just hear the Ortlieb accountants saving money on you while charging you more. I've returned this thing and gone with the old design, but this pretty much ends my blind faith in Ortlieb design. How disappointing.

Ortlieb Trunk Bag

Very well designed; watertight; zipper extension makes it possible to fit items that are a bit larger into the bag. Great for my lunch, or for cans, jars, etc. when I go shopping, or for that hot deli takeout box that you don't want sloshing around in your panniers. Rack mount is pretty easy (though you may need reading glasses to parse the instructions) and solid. I leave mine on the bike, locked. Reflective patches really light up. Very happy with this purchase.

Ortlieb Trunk Bag

The assembly directions are not what I have come to expect from Ortlieb. They clearly show the attachment of the base to the bike rack without nuts , and , in fact, nuts are NOT included in the parts. Once I concluded I had to use nuts to install, everything went well and I am satisfied with the quality of the bag. The base piece that attaches to the rack is rather heavy. I believe a more conventional strap attachment would have been more practical. With the base you can remove the bag quickly, but I doubt I am going to be taking the bag off and on enough for it to be of much use.
