My Ortlieb Ultimate 6 Classic Handlebar Bag is one of my favourite pieces of kit. I take it on almmost every ride I do – not just touring, but trips to the shops, etc. It’s so convenient – it clicks on to the handlebars really easily, and clicks off again without any hassle. There is a strap to convert it to a shoulder bag for off the bike, and an internal zipped pocket is perfect for keeping valuables in. The other thing I love about this bag is it also locks on to the bike – it comes with a pair of keys so if you want to keep it from going astray, you can. It’s the perfect size for everything you need for easy access – keys, phone, charger, wallet, camera, lunch, raincoat – basically, anything you want to keep in sight and close to hand. You can also attach an Ortlieb map holder to it for ease of navigation whilst riding (I also used my map holder to contain easy access bear spray in Canada!) They also come in an array of snazzy colours!
A must for any bike tour! The Ultimate6 Classic is made from waterproof polyester fabric and is the basic piece for every touring biker. The lockable reinforced lid with magnetic closure and the lockable ORTLIEB mounting set ensure stability and safety. Once fixed to the handlebar both lid and bag can be secured single-handedly. Wallet, ID and keys are stored safely inside the zippered valuables compartment or key snap-hook. Removable shoulder strap.
