360deg View Description Classical rear pannier with lid and QL2 system. From 2009 on, the panniers are supplied with further features and new design: waterproof, mounted outer pockets with lid closure offer more space and quick access to small utensils. With its classical lid closure the waterproof rear pannier Bike-Packer Plus allows fast access to the bag’s interior. An internal double drawstring snow flap provides additional protection against dust, humidity and snow. A fixed inner pocket with main compartment and zippered mesh pocket helps organising items inside the bag. The ORTLIEB QL2 system allows fast and easy single-handed mounting and removal of the panniers. The QL2 hooks can be adapted to the rack without requiring any tools, and are suitable for racks with a tube diameter from 8mm to 16 mm (differently sized hook inserts are included). Once on the rack, the hooks close automatically. For removal, you simply lift the pannier by its carrying handle. Quick and easy! The elliptical hook rail on the lower rear side of the pannier serves for additional fixation and prevents the bag from moving around. Thanks to the rotating QL2 hook the mounting system is compatible with almost any bike rack. The Bike-Packer Plus can be carried comfortably with an included shoulder strap (also new in 2009).

Question by chickenjacker: Which bicycle pannier/bag is better?
The Ortlieb Back Roller Classic or the Topeak Pannier Dry Bag?
