Ortlieb Compression Dry Bag

Our review

Tough, light, and compact waterproof bag for extra kit
Skip to view product specifications

Four panniers aren’t always enough to stow kit when you’re embarking on longer tours and roll top bags, cinched on the rear rack, are ideal for overflow. This model – from waterproof meister Ortlieb – is available in three sizes and is made from a light yet tough, scuff-resistant material that survived a gruelling tour in India without a blemish. 


There’s a slider for easy closure, although you’ll need to roll it several times to ensure complete waterproofing, and there’s also a valve to compress it right down. Our only niggle is with the bag’s closure clip, which had a tendency to spring undone when carrying the bag over your shoulder.
