A good sized harndlebar bag with a load of features. Big enough to hold all of your important items, with easy access in a durable and waterproof bag. Great on its own or a part of a luggage system.
A must for any bike tour! The Ultimate6 Classic is made from waterproof polyester fabric and is the basic piece for every touring biker. The lockable reinforced lid with magnetic closure and the lockable ORTLIEB mounting set ensure stability and safety. Once fixed to the handlebar both lid and bag can be secured single-handedly. Wallet, ID and keys are stored safely inside the zippered valuables compartment or key snap-hook. Removable shoulder strap.
Ortlieb's Ultimate 6M Classic Handlebar Bag with Magnetic Lid is designed to provide safe and secure storage bike bike touring. This bag has the traditional Ortlieb style heavy duty PVC covering the panniers with reflective pannel. This bag provides a good amount of space for transporting kit and is perfectly suited to bike touring. It works well for commuters too as it is durable, waterproof and can easily be attached to the handlebar. This design allows the bag to be locked to the bike and it can also lock the lid so if you need to leave your bike for a short amount of time you need not worry.
In addition to the usual hardwearing waterproof material used by Ortlieb, the inner has a foam coating on the lid and plastic frame to maintain the structure of the bag. Internally there is an small zip pocket to keep things in and it comes with a shoulder strap which Orlieb say can be used to carry the bag around. It is not great when used in this way as its somewhat uncomfortable and awkward to carry. However, as a handlebar bag it does a great job.
