Ortlieb Ultimate 5 Plus Handlebar Bag - Size M Yellow/Black
Map, sunglasses, papers and energy bars - all within reach in your handle bar bag. The Ultimate5 models are made of heavy duty fabric and are still lightweight. They are easily mounted and taken off, and can be converted into a shoulder bag within seconds. The lockable mounting set protects them from theft. An extension adapter for handle bars with extreme bends is available as accessory. Stay on the right track! A mapcase or GPS cover can be fixed onto the lid of the Ultimate5 Plus and Classic. Both products are part of the Ultimate accessory program. The handle bar bags have stiffeners to keep them standing and feature a rigid lid.
These bags are available in size M and L.
The integrated valuables pocket helps organize small items. Both models feature a 3M Scotchlite reflector for safety in the dark. Maximum allowable weight is 3kg/105oz. Designed for a handle bar diameter of max. 31,8mm/1.25 in.
This handlebar bag is very light and roomy. It is also waterproof, but I cannot attest to that fact yet. It has an easy mounting and dismounting system, and one can lock the bag to the bars. I like this bag ok, but if I had the opportunity, knowing what I know now, I would not purchase this bag again, or if I did, I would not spend the extra money for the bag with the divider and side pockets. First off, the divider ends up "creeping up," so all the stuff that was separated ends up all together anyways. Second, the side pockets are so small that they are really not that useful, plus if you have a small bike, then you can't excess them while the bag is mounted, and lastly, the strap does not mount to the bag in the standard clip method but instead the straps 'snap' onto the bag. The strap then detaches from the bag too easily. The bag's closing method takes some getting use to also. The top is secured by two snaps, and it takes time getting the snaps to line up in the right position.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
