    Season :

    Code : OF9901

    Brand : Ortlieb

    Weight : 2KG

    The Ortlieb Rackless Seat Pack is your perfect companion on any ride, be it long or short.

    The Seat-Pack's rackless system that features industrial strength Velcro® straps allows you to easily mount it to any seat post, making it perfect for any type of ride. Designed to fully expand, the Seat-Pack boasts a volume of 16.5 litres, as well as being lightweight and sturdy, while its polyurethane coated fabric makes it fully waterproof.

    The Seat-Pack's multiple straps and buckles keep your belongings safe and secure and reduce swaying when you're on the move, while an external lattice shock cord is perfect for holding jackets or drinks. Undoubtedly the most intelligent seat-pack currently on the market given how it distributes weight through your seat post and tube, rather than putting weight directly on your rear stays, the Rackless Seat-Pack from Ortlieb is a simple, but vital accessory for any cyclist.

    Purchased for light weight touring without the need for panniers. You will need about 17 - 18cm of seatpost showing in order for this to fit comfortably. Fitting when full of luggage takes some practice - fit the saddle straps first then the seatpost straps, then adjust everything. On the plus side... Its fully waterproof and indeed airtight. Its easily adjustable from 8 to 16.5 litres. If you have less luggage, pack a waterproof or spare top to stop things bouncing around inside. It works well as a rear mudguard. It weighs very little and allows for light touring on a road bike. You dont get the drag that you get from panniers. It keeps its form when extended out from the saddle - two straps see to this and work well. It appears very well made and I have little dout it is built to last despite feeling quite light. There are eyelets for rear light attachment at various states of fold - you fold it over at the back to reduce space required. I know from experience that 5kg is ample for 2 to 4 day tours and will cover spare cycling clothes, evening clothes, tools, spares,bars and gels. locks, waterproofs, wash kit and the obligatory fridge magnet from everywhere you visit. On the minus side, it only holds 5kgs - however, with normal items you will find that this is all that space will permit. The weight is mounted higher than with panniers and extends outwards to the rear - with sensible packing i.e. heavier items at the front (where it has a hard plastic floor) and lighter items to the rear, this shouldnt be a problem - and it is only 5kg, (11 lbs) I would like to have seen better rear light mounting options. It looks quirky but I think it looks cooler than panniers

    In spite of the capacious volume, the bag is exceptionally stable (even when only half full), which is a huge plus point for large volume seat packs. The attachment points fit all my saddles and seatposts well, although the seatpost fixing doesnt fit my partners bike, it having a short seatpost - this bag is almost certainly best suited to bikes with 12cm or more of seatpost extending from top of seat tube. The only minor quibble with the bag is not with the bag itself, but with the seatpost fixings, and this almost certainly only with certain finishes on seatposts - after 2 quick outings with the bag, I noticed that the finish on one side of my Ragley Spike had worn off down to the metal. Whether this is down to the fixings on the bag, or the actual seatpost fixings remains to be seen.

    I picked this up in favour of going for a rack and pannier set up as I didnt want to mess on with adding and removing the rack whenever I needed a lighter load. Ive been using it daily for a commute and have barely scratched the surface on the capacity of this bag. Ive loaded it up as part of my coast to coast kit with a 750ml hydration pack at the bottom, over night clothes and a change of clothes for the next day, a technical hoodie, a fold away backpack and 1l dry bag...attaches solidly out of the way and I have the confidence that everything will stay dry. The elastic on top is great for securing stuff you might need in a hurry and I have some goretex trousers and a waterproof rolled up and strapped down. One observation is how it attaches, it does take some practice taking it on and off then cinching it down. The angle of the straps that go underneath the saddle take some positioning especially if you have limited space under there. That being said I prefer it to the single strap design seen on some other bags. It would also be nice to see some replaceable straps, though I can understand why they are sewed in place. All in all Im really happy with this bag and will be suggesting it to a few people I ride with.

    Superb and flexible alternative to panniers and bags on a rack. Once youve learned how to pack it so it stands straight, youre away. Two sturdy straps tension it up and the air valve allows you to compress the contents effectively. Fully waterproof and blimmin useful. Totally worth the seemingly eye-watering price.

    Wow! What a piece of kit. Easy to fit. Only had a test ride so far, but did 10 miles and didnt even know it was there. No chafing on the thighs and zero side to side wiggle like I had expected. Yet to be tested in the wet but, as I am taking it up to Orkney for a week Im sure it will come into its own. Also, managed to fit a weeks worth of clothes and waterproof jacket and trousers in there no problem. Very happy.

  • Hi. So Ortleib say you need 14cm of free space on seat tube, but I see from a previous message that you suggest 17cm is required. So which is it? I have 15cm of the straight part of my seat tube. Thanks. Neil
    Question asked by Neil on Jul 12 2017 11:40AM
    We would have recommended this from when we have tested it, but, if Ortleib are saying that you would only need 14cm of free space, then you are welcome to try.

  • Hi there, I consider using this pack for a long distance road cycling race which involves riding at night. For safety, it would therefore be crucial that i can still use a rear light despite having the pack attached to my seat post. Do you see a possibility for this? My light is a Knog Blinder that attaches to a post but it has no eyelet.
    Question asked by Matthias on Jul 6 2017 11:32AM
    Due to how this fits and expands when full, I would recommend to get a different fitting light as although you might be able to squeeze a light on the post, I don't think there will be much light provided by it due to the bag.

    Question asked by Ian on May 30 2017 1:10PM
    As you've got an aero post, this won't fit I'm afraid. I wouldn't recommend fitting anything to a carbon post either.
