What is QL3? Read below.

Ortlieb has taken the best futures of their Bike Roller Plus panniers and combined them with all the things you would want in an office bag that mounts to your racks, including a spot for you computer and organizers for pens, pencils and other office goodies. The Office Bag is waterproof and includes two partitioned inner liners. The Office Large Plus comes with either the QL2 or QL3 system, read below for more information.

View the Ortlieb Office Bag's Instruction Manual (requires Adobe Acrobat).

QL3 attachment system is new for 2011, it features a new style of mounting component that mounts to the right or left side of your rack. This component is fully adjustable both for heal clearance and angle of your bag. The bag for the QL3 system now has a much more flush back so it's more comfortable to carry. The upper mounting clips have an auto lock so the bag stays securely mounted to the rack, simply pull the handle up to unlock the clips. The QL2 system is not compatible with the QL3 system and cannot be modified to accept the new components.

  • Interior office organizers for pens, pencils and other fun office items.
  • The Office Bag works great with the OMM Red Rock
  • Dimensions: 11.8" x 15.7" x 6.7" (H x W x D)
  • Volume: 21L / 1282 cu.in.
  • Weight: 1730g / 1282 cu.in.

All Ortlieb products are backed by a 5-year warranty against defects in material and manufacturing.

I got the black QL2 version that was on sale. Adjusting it to fit on my rack was relatively easy, and so far the quick release has worked well, although it takes some practice to get used to pulling the handle at the right angle to get it to release. Still a big improvement over having to unhook a low bungee-hook when I get to work. The empty bag is fairly heavy, but that is a reflection of how sturdy it is. I haven't tested the waterproof claim. For frequent bike commuters that want to be able to take their bag inside, it's probably worth the price. If you plan to leave your pannier on the bike most of the time, there's no reason to pay for the quick release system.

Good amount of space, 2 work shirt+pants+computer+ lunch+ plenary of space for other things (files?). It has two partitions and a stif bottom and sides. It is so easy to get on and off, that you wonder if it is well put before you start the ride, but it always hooks right! Waterproof is a plus, after 30 years of sealing my stuff for the commute, it is surreal not having to put everything in plastic bags for the ride. If you commute and carry an I-pad or laptop back and forth is worth every penny for the simple fact that it is well build and it will protect your investment against the elements. I recommend it!

This is a superb bike bag. I have been using it for most of the summer and it works very well. I can put in my laptop and quite a bit of reading material. Best bag for academics biking to and from office or school. I wished they have clips on the sides to clip on the shoulder strap though. Overall, it is an excellent bag.

PRO: This one really is waterproof without the addition of a separate rain cover. That's convenient. For a large bag of this volume it is surprisingly lightweight. The rack clips work well and there are adapters included for rack rails of different diameters. The interior partitions are well thought out and don't prevent you from carrying big items like bulky groceries. CON: There is only one compartment unfortunately so you have to open the two snap clasps and unfurl the top to get access. A side zippered compartment, for items which could get wet, would be a plus. Somewhat more expensive than other commuter bags of similar size. SUMMARY: all in all a good value. I should be using this for years to come.

I am adding this to my earlier review. If you wish to install this bag horizontally, you have to drill a new hole as the bag is designed to mount at an angle only. Also, if you are installing it on a Tour Easy recumbent as I did you should know that my seat is more forward than other Tour Easys and so you might have to hang it higher than I did so it would be higher than the top of the seat by 3 inches. I added a cross piece of stiff wire for the bags lower attachment clip. This bag and two hazel panniers really look great and give me huge storage. It is not top heavy and all the weight is forward of the axle. I removed the interior dividers and the outboard panel as well as the outboard strap and handle. The bag now weighs in at 37.1 ounces. I would also note that the plus version is lighter than the classic version due to the material used.

I researched this bag at OrtliebUSA and BikeBagShop and read the reviews but it was not clear what the Plus in the product name meant. I discovered that it is the upgraded cordura material. The Classic version is the standard pannier material. I also see that the QL-3 system costs an additional $17. I am a recumbent rider and do not use this bag in the conventional manner. It is attached horizontally to the top rail of my seat (Tour Easy) and I have panniers below on there own racks for touring with no conventional over the tire rack. I do not have panniers up front but do have the Ortlieb classic plus handlebar bag.

This bag is awesome. It's bigger than it looks, and can fit a pair of shoes (size 13), pants, shirt, belt, socks, iPad, a bunch of files and papers, with room left over. And it's truly waterproof. The attachment mechanism is brilliant and elegant, and it works PERFECTLY. My only wish is that the closure (roll) were as elegant as the attachment.

This is a nice looking waterproof bag that fits my 17" laptop, but I am not that happy with the QL3 mounting system. Once you have the QL3 mount installed, it gets in the way of installing pretty much anything else on the rack - for instance grocery panniers, child seat, etc. If you ever put anything else on your rack, consider the QL2 system instead. A more serious issue is that while carrying a heavy laptop with the Y-shaped Topeak rack that I have, the bottom of the bag twists a lot on bumps, to the point where the plastic bumper on the bag has hit the spokes while riding fast over bumps. Sppprrrang! I don't think this would be a problem with more H-shaped racks like the Tubus which have more lateral support at the bottom, but the point is that the QL3 mount is just too flexible. I have never had this problem with panniers using the traditional system, so maybe I'll switch to the QL2. Did I mention they look nice?

Yes, I would recommend this product and bikebagshop.com to my friends. Good size, very good looking and supposedly durable material. I would like to point out 2 things: 1. The Q3 carrying system: it is a huge leap ahead compared to the old system. It is now possible to comfortably carry the bag around even when it is quite heavy. What you have to know about this system though: the bag ships with a mounting system that is easy to install but not very stable. In my case, the lower part of the bag will dangle against the lower part of my bike rack. I feel that when I ride and it disturbs me. This is obviously quite easy to fix, but I'd rather not have to tinker to make a rather pricey product work the way it should. Also, be advised that you can only use this system on a bike that is equipped with the special mounting system (unlike the old system). 2. The closing system is not as practical as a zipper (but certainly more waterproof). It always takes a couple of seconds to undo the straps before you can access the content (i.e. not possible at a traffic light).

Great bag! I use it for commuting to university in addition to a cheap pannier I keep attached to my bike which holds my lock, tools, lights, etc. The QL3 system is fantastic and attaching the bag is incredibly fast and easy. I usually just fold the shoulder strap and secure it under one end of the roll top closure instead of detaching it each time. Easily carries a textbook or two, a few notebooks and lunch (in addition to pencils, calculator, etc). Tradeoffs: (1) Roll-top closure is more cumbersome than a zipper (but much more waterproof) (2) Bag is less comfortable to carry off the bike than a backpack (not uncomfortable, just less so). In the bag's favor is the great increase in comfort while riding in addition to the increased ease of accessing the contents over a backpack (bag sits upright and retains shape). Overall, since I don't have to walk long distances with my bag, this is not an issue, but it should be kept in mind if you will be doing a lot of carrying off the bike. Very happy with my purchase; would definitely purchase again and from bikebagshop who offered the bag at a great price and also threw in a free Plant Bike Superflash!

I had a great shopping experience, although they forgot my bonus item originally they were fast in making it right. The bag works really great and is well made and holds my 17" laptop, which was my biggest priority. It has a lot of compartments inside for just about anything, only wish is that there were some outside pockets for items that need to be quickly accessed.

Once installed, the bag clicks on quickly and easily with the QL3 system. It's large enough, and has lots of internal pockets and dividers to keep things neat. I wish it had an outside, easy-access pocket (for keys, ID). We haven't had a real downpour yet to test its waterproofness, but it's come through puddles and light rain dry. The installation instructions were poor, and installation was difficult the first time (indeed, I had to replace one of the brackets and try again; the folks at BikeBagShop were helpful, and followed through on my problem). But since I've gotten it on, it's been great to use, and was worth the hassle.

When I went out searching for a bag to hold my 17" HP laptop, this is what everyone said to get and they were right!! It holds my laptop, a change of clothes and a towel, so I can shower when I get to work. I do need to make some changes to the rack or get a different rack, because after I got the bag set up so that my big feet didn't hit it, it made it not lock in at the bottom. I didn't pay much for the rack, so I may just go get a better rack that will fit the bag. If you are looking for a large waterproof laptop bag, this is the one to get!

Very well thought through product and seems quite durable after one month of use it still looks like new. This is a semi rigid bag, there is a stiff plastic U-shaped piece that comes detached, snap this inside the bag and it holds its shape when empty; this makes the bag very easy to fill. For some reason it does not clip to a rack as easily as the back roller does (harder to weight the clip-side handle), but attachment is very positive and secure just like other Ortliebs. I use this with an Old Man Mountain rack and there is just barely enough heel clearance with 430mm chain stays...something to consider. I think this bag is a great value.

I bought this bag for my hybrid Specialized. It fits my 15" MacBook Pro perfectly with the InCase case around it. The bag shipped with a hard liner that snaps in to keep it expanded, and I haven't decided if I'm going to use it, but it is nice to have it. The closer is like a kayaking bag, where you roll it in, and then snap it shut. A nice feature is the plastic handle has a slit on it to tuck the other side of the handle into it, so you're only holding onto the one handle, not two straps. The only complaints I have are the shoulder strap is a bit narrow and the locations for where to clip it (off the handle and then on the clips on the back) are a bit inconvenient--I would prefer it to clip on the ends of the bag, like a regular shoulder bag.

What a fantastic solution to my search for a briefcase that I could mount to my Tubus Cosmo Rear Rack to transport my laptop, my accessories, and my daily reading material! The bag mounts very, very securely to my Tubus rack, and it is completely watertight! No rattleing thanks to the anti-abrasion panels that Ortlieb thoughtfully designed! No additional unsightly "water proof" covers necessary to protect my electronic gear! (I have been through several thunderstorms with the bag attached to my bike ... not a drop of moisture was able to get through the bag or the top enclosure!!) The folks at BikeBagShop.com are extremely responsive (Thank you, Megan, for all of your suggestions during my phone call when I ordered the bag!) and their customer service is incomparable! Well done! You have made my daily commute to and from my business an absolute pleasure! Warmest regards and many, many thanks from Chicago! John LaPine
