Item #1 – Ortlieb Downtown QL-3 Briefcase Pannier

The Retail Price was $170.00 . . . Sold in Singles.

50% Off Clearance Sale Price = $85.00 + $10.00 Flat-Rate Shipping to the Lower 48 US States!

  • Colors . . . Aubergine-Black,  Lime-Black
  • Volume . . . 1098 cubic inches (18L)
  • Dimensions . . . 14.2 x 14.2 x 5.5 inches (H x W x D)
  • Weight . . . 54 oz (3.4 lbs)
  • Optional Accessories:  Notebook Sleeve
  • Fabric & Construction:  The Ortlieb Downtown is made from Ortlieb’s great looking and durable  “Classic” waterproof fabric.  All seams are high-frequency welded, providing excellent waterproofing and narrow manufacturing tolerances.
  • The Ortlieb Downtown QL-3 Briefcase Pannier is a classic yet heavy-duty waterproof commuting briefcase with a flap closure with robust metal clips.  Attachment and removal is quick and easy.  There are no protruding hooks on the side of the pannier, so carrying the pannier as a shoulder bag is more comfortable, and it doesn’t look like a bicycle bag when you carry it into your office.
  • Features:  Carry handle; removable, non-slip padded shoulder strap with D-ring attachment; great internal organization with large zippered pockets, pen slots, snap hook with clip for keys, and laptop compartment with Velcro closure; reflective ORTLIEB logo, piping on handle and 2 sliver-moon reflectors; edge protection plates on lower corners and plastic feet on bottom for stability.  The Downtown Briefcase can be mounted on either side of rack.
  • Mounting System:  The Ortlieb QL-3 Mounting System works without top-hooks.  The QL-3 mounting bracket is attached semi-permanently to the side of the rack.  Pins on the mounting bracket lock securely into slots on the back of the pannier.  The mounting system can be adjusted to fit either side of the rack at different heights and angles.  QL-2.1, QL-2 and QL-1 pannier hooks will attach to the top bar on the QL-3 Mounting Bracket, so you can carry your other Ortlieb panniers on the same rack without having to remove the QL-3 mounting bracket.
  • QL-3 vs. QL-3.1 . . . Why these Clearance Sale QL-3.1 Packs are such a great value.
  • The QL-3 and QL-3.1 panniers fit the same triangular mounting bracket. The improvement is so slight from QL-3 to QL-3.1 that the only practical difference when using them is a few seconds time when attaching the pannier to the mounting bracket. When installing the pannier on the QL-3 bracket you simply look over the top of the bag and guide the three pins into the receiver openings on the back of the QL-3 pannier . . . EASY!   The bag clicks into place on the pins, and is very securely attached.   When you are ready to remove the pannier from the bracket, simply pull up on the release handle, and the pannier is instantly free from the rack. The QL-3 bracket is so good that I was surprised when Ortlieb switched to QL-3.1 because I didn’t feel that a change was necessary.

    When installing the pannier on the newer QL-3.1 bag, you will guide the lower bracket onto the lower QL-3.1 bracket pin, and then push the top of the bag into the side of the rack while rotating the bag and top brackets until they click onto the top two pins. I am guessing the QL-3.1 bracket saves you only 3 or 4 seconds over the QL-3 system. Both QL-3 and QL-3.1 mounting systems work GREAT!  I find it difficult to say that the QL-3.1 system is worth the extra price you will pay. Both systems are great, but I think the QL-3 bags on Clearance are easily the best value – without a big performance difference.

  • The Ortlieb Downtown QL-2.1 Briefcase Pannier is a classic yet heavy-duty waterproof commuting briefcase with a flap closure with robust metal clips.  The Downtown QL-2.1 hook system provides fast and easy mounting and removal from the rack.  The included shoulder strap makes it easy to carry the pannier away from your bike.
  • Features:  Carry handle; removable, non-slip padded shoulder strap with D-ring attachment; great internal organization with large zippered pockets, pen slots, snap hook with clip for keys, and laptop compartment with Velcro closure; reflective ORTLIEB logo, piping on handle and 2 sliver-moon reflectors; edge protection plates on lower corners and plastic feet on bottom for stability.
  • The QL-2.1 top-bar is attached diagonally to tilt the pannier for better heel clearance.  The Downtown QL-2.1 hook system can be reversed, so the bag can fit on either side of the rack with the lower leading corner moved away from your heel.
  • Mounting System:  The Ortlieb Downtown QL-2.1 utilizes the new QL2.1 Quick Lock mounting system, adjustable without any tools, with automatic opening and closing by lifting the handle.  The QL2.1 system adjusts with various inserts to fit rack rails from 8mm to 16mm diameter.  Adjustable hooks at the base of the panniers keep the bottom mounted securely to the side of the rack.  The sliding top hooks can be repositioned to allow precise placement on the rack top rails.  This can also help move the panniers toward the rear of your rack, providing better heel clearance while riding.
  • Fabric & Construction:  The Ortlieb Downtown is made in the Classic fabric, a very durable, coated polyester fabric.  This fabric has been the standard in waterproofing for many years.  All seams are high-frequency welded, providing excellent waterproofing and narrow manufacturing tolerances.

  • QL-2.1 vs. QL-3.1 Mounting Systems . . . The QL-2.1 version will fit a wider variety of racks.  A QL-3.1 bag does not have external mounting hooks, so it will feel smoother against your waist when you carry it as a shoulder bag for long distances.  For shorter distances, you will be quite comfortable carrying a bag with the QL-2.1 mounting system.  If you have only one bike and rack and switch pannier types often, you will likely prefer the QL-2.1 system that does not use a semi-permanently installed mounting bracket on the rack.  If you have a dedicated commuter bike, and often carry the Office Bag on your shoulder, you may prefer the QL-3.1 version.
