Ortlieb Utlinate 6 Classic-M handlebar bag

I love this bag for bicycle touring and have been using it on my Trek 520 Grando. Spacious and efficient; it kept everything I needed on an ongoing basis easily at hand and accessible while riding--maps, snacks, sunscreen, glasses, maps, wallet, chargers, etc. Appreciated being able to lock it up in place or to just grab it if I wanted my valuables at hand. Totally waterproof even in the most torrential rain. Drawbacks: the shoulder strap Ortieb provides is too short making it inconvenient for walking around. Also, the bag blocks any handlebar light, so that light has to be relocated. I was able to rig mine on the front of my front luggage rack, which worked quite well. Just completed 850miles on the NYS Empire Trail and cannot imagine the trip without this bag.

Just what I wanted.

It has been working great. I have taken several rides with it and it works perfect. I have a three wheel Catrike 559, and mounted this on the left side this makes easy access for many items.

Great Purchase Experience

I purchased the Ortlieb Ultimate Six Handlebar bag for my wife. It arrived quickly, was what I ordered, and was well packaged. I installed it on her bike’s handlebars, and she’s been very happy with it on our long rides.

Success! After so many others failed...

I tried to get this bag for a few months before finally getting it successfully from Campfire Cycling. First, I ordered direct from Ortlieb, but about a day later I got a refund because they were out of stock. Then I ordered from Backcountry.com. When I received my bag about a week later, it had a broken part. Costumer service said to return it in exchange for a new one. About a week after it arrived there, they told me they were out of stock and couldn't fill my order! So, I finally ordered from Campfire Cycling. I got exactly what I wanted, the product was undamaged, and it came in just a few days! Wish I had started here...
