Set Your Own Schedule With a Set of Ortlieb Hi-Vis Panniers

When you go bicycle touring, you’re finally free from the clock.  You can ride late into the night or early in the morning.  Your “schedule” reveals itself as you listen to your body, the road ahead and the spontaneous adventures you encounter along the way.

You’ve got a good set of lights.  But what really gives you confidence for bicycle touring after dark are your Ortlieb Hi-Vis Panniers.

These bags glow like fireballs when reflecting the light of a carbeam.  With a pair or better yet four mounted Hi-Vis pannier mounted on your bicycle, your bicycle glows from any direction.  Any car you encounter will see you whether or not your lights are functioning properly at the moment.

That watch has been weighing too heavily on your wrist lately.  Trade it in for a set of Ortlieb Hi-Vis Panniers and let the good times roll.

Ortlieb for the win

I've been using Ortlieb bags for close to 20 years. As a car-free, bicycle-as-transportation-and-everything-else kind of guy, I've now worn out at least two pait of Ortliebs. I use them daily, one carries my on the road repair bits and pieces all the time, the other acts as added volume for grocery getting and other errands. (Turns out I have an insulated soft cooler that fits exactly into the Ortlieb so festive events are no problem.) I am trying these new-to-me reflective bags for the first time. I hope they wear as well as the other material. Service from Campfire Cycling is excellent! They also have a wide array of goods from which to select. My bags shipped in a timely manner and arrived unscathed. I will gladly order from Campfire Cycling in the future as needed.

Ortlieb high visibility Backroller Panniers

Extremely well made and durable.The quick 2.1 system makes attaching the panniers a breeze. Waterproof to boot. Purchased these at Campfire Cycling and these folks are fantastic.

Long Awaited Upgrade

As a dedicated commuter cyclist, I ride in all types of weather and conditions. This includes rain and early morning rides in the dark. Previous set were Vaude purchased from this same source under a previous name. Excellent at that time. Now sourcing the best rainproof reflective bags available. I miss the zippered pockets but not the puddles the old bags made while drying out. Now planning my next decade of riding mounted on a Turbus rack.Bags delivered promptly with good packaging. Great group to work with.

Totally satisfied!

I’ve been low or no car for 3 years. I use my panniers every day. I wanted more visibility during dawn, dusk and night which led me to the Ortlieb Hi Vis back roller panniers. Set-up was moderately simple. I had a hard time getting the reducing clips to snap in and the retaining clamp on the back is 1/4” below where my rack needs it but there is enough flexibility in the pannier that it does snap onto my rack and is very stable. The directions from Ortlieb are like bad IKEA instructions. I love the divided pocket inside. My wallet and keys stay where I can easily find them. It is easy to clip and the bag unclips simply by grabbing the handle and lifting. It holds twice as much as my Louis Garneau pannier!!! I fit a full change of bulky winter clothing, shoes, lunch and a grocery sack of food in one bag, yet it can also roll down to flat and narrow. The pannier comes in a small “pizza box.” It’s not that big when it’s empty. The bag is stiff enough so that I don’t have to hold it open with one hand. It sits upright in a grocery cart, for example. I love the hi vis yellow which has the added bonus that the inside is bright and everything is easy to see. The bags look well made and I look forward to many years of safer night riding.
