Going Waterproof

Seeing a big yellow bag on my back during morning arrival and afternoon departure is a common site for my co-workers. That big yellow bag is a waterproof Ortlieb messenger bag. Ortlieb Messenger Bag

I must say that if you’re the sort who would rather “pack it on your back” than retrofit your ride with panniers, then this baby is for you. This is especially true if you live in a wet climate (like I do).

With a roomy 1,831 cubic inches of space this completely waterproof bag can carry quite a load. I routinely pack a laptop computer, work clothes, sack-lunch, valuables and extra cycling gear.

This little gem isn’t cheap but it’s well worth the price if you do a lot of wet weather cycling. An added bonus is the very bright color choices (yellow & orange) that improves your visibilty to motorists.
