The ORTLIEB Vario is a product long wished for: the newly developed bag has a double function: it can be used as backpack thanks to its removable carrying system or as pannier with its QL3.1 mounting system. It is the perfect solution for passionate touring and mountain bikers who continue to climb the top at the end of the trail, or for a stroll through town by bike or on foot.
The padded carrying system offers top comfort, and the adjustable shoulder and chest straps are individually adjustable. When used as bike pannier, the carrying system can be easily taken off and stowed away in the zippered front pocket.
ORTLIEB‘s innovative rack mounting QL3.1 allows even more comfortable and quicker mounting of the pannier. Simply insert into the lower mounting element, move towards the rack and slide into the top hooks by a lateral motion from left or right. The hooks lock automatically and disengage by lifting the bag.
The QL3.1 mounting set features three attachment points and can be mounted to any standard rack. Height and angle are individually adjustable. The mounting components on the bag‘s rear side are flat leaving the bag‘s back uncluttered, ideal for use in daily life.
The abrasion and tear resistant PS33 Cordura fabric is 100% waterproof and super light weight. Two neoprene outer pockets (not waterproof!) offer room for drinking bottles etc. Further features: inner pocket, carrying handle, helmet flap and two large 3M reflectors.
