This is a great bag! Waterproof, spacious, hard plastic liner, magnetic closure, large cue sheet window - everything is thoughtfully designed and well manufactured. The issue is the mount, which is sold separately and not intuitive to install. The mount uses a sturdy wire that you tighten with three different screws, rock solid once you get it installed tightly, but it takes a bit more know-how than velcro straps for sure. Still, an excellent product
This bag is excellent. So sturdy and smart-looking. I like the magnetic closures.
What I do not like is the mounting system. First of all, I do not like that Ortleib no longer includes the mount with the bag, yet they didnt lower the price to reflect that, so that for a $100 bag, you need to spend another 30 bucks. In my case, despite following the instructions to the letter, I just could not get the mount tight enough to not droop during a ride. My friends and daughter also have had the same issue.
The problem was resolved by buying a Klickfix mount for another $35, so for a handlebar bag that should have been well under $100, I wound up spending about $170. Beware of this, and dont get the Ortleib mount.
This bag is well made and holds more than one would expect. The closing mechanism is magnetic and the top doesnï¿½t always close completely. It would have been nice if the manufacturer had added some additional pockets inside along the interior sides. In addition the mounting system is pretty wonky but I got it to work after ruining the cable and buying a replacementï¿½.all in all it is working ok and I use it every time I ride my trike!
