Handlebar Pack 9L – SRP £105
ORTLIEB's Handlebar Pack is an indispensable item when on a bikepacking trip. This 9L version is the smaller of the two models, belonging to the more compact class of bikepacker handlebar rolls. With a length of only 40 cm, this waterproof handlebar bag is the right choice for bikepackers with off-road drop bars and both racing and hybrid-style handlebars. The compact Handlebar-Pack is also extremely lightweight.
Thanks to the roll closures at both ends, you can always gain quick access to your gear. Fitting is via two strong Velcro straps and spacer blocks ensuring secure attachment to any handlebar type, including carbon handlebars. It’s also possible to attach ORTLIEB Accessory-Pack for additional carrying capacity.

Accessory-Pack – SRP £55
What should you do with all those small, but important extras on your bikepacking trip? The best place to put your snacks, smartphone, wallet, and other items are in your ORTLIEB Accessory-Pack which fixes to the handlebar via its pre-mounted Velcro straps. It’s also possible to use it as a shoulder bag or hip bag. If you already have a ORTLEIB Handlebar-Pack then you can use the metal hooks to securely attach the Accessory-Pack to the four points of attachment on the Handlebar-Pack to increase your capacity.
