The Ultimate Rugged Pack

The Ortlieb Big Zip is an incredibly rugged bag with lots of room. It measures in at 36.2" x 19.7" x 11.8" and can be checked onto airlines as standard luggage. With a volume of 8543 cubic inches, you can easily fit all of your traveling items and bike touring gear in it.

Made with heavy duty, double-coated, waterproof fabric, the Big Zip incorporates 4 welded-on handles and Ortlieb's waterproof TIZIP zipper for complete waterproof protection. With extreme attention to detail, this bag can be pulled in a bike trailer and makes a great all purpose bag for transporting lots of gear for boating, camping, traveling and other activities.

Due to the spacious nature of the Orlieb Big Zip, it can easily be used to fit a BOB Cargo Trailer for traveling or shipping. The Big Zip is so large that a BOB cargo trailer can easily slide into the bag, and there is still plenty of room remaining for your waterproof BOB Dry Sak and the rest of your luggage and gear. View our Instruction Manual for packing your BOB into the Big Zip. The Big Zip also works well for traveling with and/or shipping the following cargo trailers: Burley Nomad, Burley Flatbed, Wandertec Bongo, Croozer Travel, and Weber Monoporter. When not in use, the Big Zip can be folded down and packed with your other gear or it can be used to add more space to your trailer by strapping it to the top.

If you need the shipping/ traveling option, we will include our BOB trailer shipping kit with the purchase of a Big Zip. This kit includes a dropout protector for the trailer dropouts; 2 fork tab pads, and packing instructions. Download our Instruction Manual for packing your BOB trailer into your Big Zip.

Michael C says...
Great bag. I've used it twice to carry my BOB on the train. It easily holds the BOB and lots of other gear yet it is still easy to carry and light enough so no shipping problems. I carried it under the BOB sack during my tour and it held stuff I didn't need very often or was for breakdowns. It is also very water resistant. At home it folds flat for easy storage. My only concern it that on both occasions I've used it the fork protectors broke during transit. Not sure why but there wasn't any damage to the fork or the bag.
