  • The shipping cost is the same for a Single, or Front and Rear Set.
  • No shipping charges when added to an order that qualifies for free shipping!
  • Specify LONG for the larger rear panniers, and SHORT for smaller “front” panniers.
  • Use mini padlocks (not included), and lock your panniers to your racks.
  • Anti-Theft devices are for Ortlieb Panniers with the QL2 or QL-2.1 Mounting System.
  • The cables nest behind the pannier top-rails when not in use.
  • NOT high security, but using them does mean a thief must have a cutting tool to walk away with your panniers.  So it may stop an impulse theft.
  • Locksmiths and many hardware stores sell sets of locks that are keyed alike, so you can have one key that fits all of your mini padlocks locks.

Do you need Anti-Theft Cables?  Just about every day I get asked the question “are anti-theft cables a good idea?”  The answer is YES, but only if you don’t get a false sense of security because you have them.  My best example . . . when you stop for a restroom break, you probably aren’t going to carry two pairs of panniers and a handlebar bag inside the restroom.  You’ll take the handlebar bag with your valuables as a shoulder bag, but leave the panniers on your bike.  The cables might keep someone who doesn’t have a cutting tool from quickly walking away with your panniers before you get back to your bike.  However, if you get lazy about unlocking your panniers and start to trust the cables to keep your bags and gear safe, then you might leave the panniers out of your sight for an extended period of time – and have them stolen – when you might have taken them off the bike and kept them with you if you didn’t have the cables in the first place.

Item #7 . . . Ortlieb Light-Pack-PRO-25 Ultralight Compressible Daypack / Backpack
$135.00 with Free Shipping to the Lower 48 US States!

AK, HI, and international destinations may receive a shipping credit.

  • COLORS . . . Black,  Light-Green/Lime,  Orange/Signal-Red
  • Click on photos to see full-size “Lightbox” images!

This is a great pack to take with you on a long cross-country bike ride with loaded panniers.  When you want a day off from cycling, take a hike in Yellowstone with your Light Pack PRO 25!  Load the Lightpack and place it in a lightweight drawstring bag to control the straps, and it could also function as your rack-top pack.  Are you going on a long back-packing trip with shorter hikes away from camp?  This might be a great second pack.

  • Additional Features:  Removable chest and waist strap; loops for an optional rear light.
  • Volume . . .  25 Liters / 1526cubic inches
  • Dimensions . . . 18.5 x 10.2 x 6.1 inches
  • Weight . . . only 14.5 ounces!
  • Optional Accessories:  Hydration System (Ortlieb Waterbag & Drinking Tube)
  • The ORTLIEB Light-Pack PRO 25 combines the minimalism of the Light-Pack 25 with more comfort.  The inflatable back padding ensures a more pleasant carrying feel.  The elastic drawstring attachments on the outside keep clothing and equipment within reach and the outside pockets on the side offer space for bottles and snacks.  More volume and carrying capacity at a weight of only 385 grams is scarcely possible!  Just like its minimalist brother, the Light-Pack Pro 25 makes for an ideal second backpack on account of its small packing size. It is a perfect daypack for summiteers, paddle-boarders and anyone else who prefers to go forth without a burden.
  • I took a photo of the Light Pack PRO 25 within it’s drawstring bag, and included it within the photo gallery so you can see how it fits in my hand.  This will be a small addition of volume and weight to your cycle touring load.
  • The Light Pack PRO 25 weighs only 3.6 ounces more than the Light Pack 25.  A small weight penalty gives you several extra features.  The inflatable back padding system gives you more comfort during a long hike, and the elastic drawstring system on the back provides some external carrying space – a perfect place for your rain jacket perhaps.  And the addition of outside pockets on the sides give you space for water bottles or snacks.

  • Light-Pack 25 Backpack . . . A more minimalist design is hardly imaginable!  The Light-Pack 25 is the lightest of the waterproof Ortlieb backpacks.  With a 25-liter payload and a weight of only 290 grams, the Light-Pack 25 offers an optimal weight-to-volume ratio and distinguishes itself in terms of its purist design, its proven Ortlieb roll closure and its lightweight, air-permeable straps.  And when it’s not needed, the minimalist shrinks down and waits in its practical mesh bag for its next mission.
  • I took a photo of the Light Pack 25 within it’s drawstring bag and included it within the photo gallery so you can see how it fits in my hand.  This will be a small addition of volume and weight to your cycle touring load.

  • A single pannier requires one PAIR of top hooks and inserts.
  • 2 x 8mm and 2 x 11mm Top Hook Inserts are included.
  • “Should I carry spare pannier top hooks?”  Some cyclists who are going on epic tours prepare for every eventuality and like to carry spares.  Ortlieb top hooks are quite strong and durable.  The vast majority of my customers never need a replacement hook, but once in a while one gets broken in an accident (most of the time the hooks even survive crashes).  If you are the cautious type, you might consider carrying a spare pair of hooks, especially if you are planning a world tour, or going on an off-road tour.  Some of my customers will split a pair of hooks and put a third top hook on each of their rear panniers.  Then they don’t have to figure out where to carry their spares.  An added benefit is that the third top hook means there is an extra mechanism to open when you take the panniers off, potentially slowing down a thief during an attempt to lift one of your panniers from your rack.

Item #18 . . . Lower Anchoring Hook for Ortlieb QL-2.1 Panniers

$7.00 Each + $7.00 USPS Priority Mail shipping to the lower 48 states

Select $3.50 USPS First Class Mail shipping if you are not in a hurry.

  • No shipping charges when added to an order that qualifies for free shipping!
  • QL-2.1 Lower Hooks fit 2015 and later Ortlieb “Plus” Series Panniers, such as Back Roller Plus, Sport Roller Plus, Bike Packer Plus, and Sport Packer Plus.
  • Do you want a little extra pannier stability for off-road riding, and an easy way to carry spare lower hooks?  Each lower pannier hook track can support 2 lower hooks, one aimed forward, and one aimed rearward, within the “V’s” created by two vertical tubes on each side of Tubus rear racks.
  • Did you lose a hook that wasn’t tight?  There are curved slots in the top of the retaining knobs.  A US quarter will fit nicely in one of the slots, and help you get a better grip.  You can likely get an extra half-turn of the knob than you will get if you simply grip the knob with your fingers.  The knobs need to be tight, but not over-tight.  Don’t force them.  Note that the more recently designed lower hooks from Ortlieb are rarely lost because of a ratcheting mechanism under the knob.  This is true for all current QL-1, QL-2 and QL-2.1 Lower Hooks.  Lower hooks made several years ago did not have this mechanism, and earned a reputation for falling off frequently – no longer an issue if they are properly tightened.  Note that Ortlieb assumes you will adjust them to fit your racks, so they barely tighten them at the factory.
  • If  your Lower hook does not seem large enough to fit the oversized tube on a Tubus Tara or Duo front rack, loosen the hook retaining knob almost to the point of bolt separation, rotate the disc beneath the knob 90 degrees, and retighten the knob.  That disc is thick on one axis, and thin in the other, and changing the orientation of the disc adjusts the hook opening.
