Love This Bag

My husband got one first and I thought we just needed the one but after doing my own bike trips I got one myself. I was going to go with a cheap bag but after reading the different ways they all sit on the handlebars I had to go with this one. I love how easy it is to attach to the bike and how it comes off if you don't want to leave it with your bike while locked up. Also, the lid stays closed even if you go over some rough terrain and your stuff is bouncing around inside. Our stuff has stayed dry as well even during some pretty heavy rain. Highly recommend.

Great Ortlieb bag and great service

It is always a pleasure to deal with Campfire Cycling! I called up to change the color of the bag after ordering it. No problem.

Ortlieb Ultimate 6 Handlebar Bag

I wasn't sure the Ortlieb Handlebar Bag would work with my Surly Moloko handlebars and the Salsa tube bag I also use when bikepacking. Good news, it works perfect, rotating up to accommodate the Salsa bag when it's on and rotating down to a standard position when the tube bag isn't there. I will have to use an attachment to raise my GoPro and light above the bag when the Salsa bag is used but that's not a problem to me. It's really handy to have certain items so easy to access and dry from any weather I might encounter.

Item works great. Many miles of experience with the Ulitmate 5. The 6 is a gift. Yes, would definitely use Campfire again. Former customer of Wayne’s

Fast service, but wouldn’t buy this item again.

BikeShopHub (now rebranding as CampfireCycling) sent it lightning fast. Loved the service. Thanks! As for the item itself? I’m frankly disappointed. I’m a cycle tourist who guides leadership treks across the globe, and prior to this I always used an Arkel Handlebar bag and loved it. Got two in a row, in fact, over the last ten years, but wanted a waterproof handlebar that didn’t require a separate cover. Enter Ortlieb. I bought the Ultimate Classic thinking it would fit my needs but ohhh was I mistaken. Well, partially. Yes, it’s waterproof, which I love. Yes, with the padded camera insert it can nestle my Fujifilm XT-2 camera, which I love. But not much else. There’s no extra zippered pocket to stash the strap. Oh, I suppose I could stuff the strap in with the camera, but I’d rather not since I already have money pouch, lenses, and cleaning kit inside, and don’t want the hassle of spaghetti-like strap every time I whip out my camera for a pic. Worse, the strap detaches FAR too easily. Instead of hooking securely onto an open triangle, it clicks onto a knob. It’s not secure. It falls off easily. On my current journey, the strap has fallen off multiple times while walking—including in areas known for pickpockets. Here I am fumbling to retrieve pouch or camera, and now I have to wrestle with a bag and strap as well. It’s more than slightly unnerving. In short, I can’t stand the way the strap attaches to the bag, and lament I’d bought the bag at all. In the future I’ll probably return to Arkel. Layne wayofthehero.com


Yes the strap does not have a separate pocket for the strap. That said, the bag is designed so that the strap does not need to be removed and can be quickly folded underneath the lid. As far as the shoulder strap disconnected, I'm wondering if the strap was not fully engaged. It seems quite secure when it is fully engaged in its snap. That said, we'll be looking out for others with issues with this aspect of the strap's design.
