  • The Ortlieb High-Visibility Office-Bag Large QL-3.1 Pannier is the ultimate Night-time Reflective waterproof commuting briefcase.  Sleek, professional and super functional, this pannier is great on the bike and off.  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.
  • Fabric & Construction:  The Ortlieb Office-Bag is made from very durable Cordura fabric with a substantial, and highly durable, thermoplastic polyurethane waterproof inner layer.  Reflective strands are woven into the Cordura.  All seams are high-frequency welded, providing excellent waterproofing and narrow manufacturing tolerances.
  • Features:  Rolled closure with side-release buckles; reflective ORTLIEB logo, and 2 large reflectors; edge protection plates on corners and plastic buttons on bottom for stability; removable, snap-in inner stiffener provides structure; carry handle and removable padded shoulder strap with D-ring attachment; lots of internal organization, including large and small pockets, sleeves for files, credit card and pen slots, key clip, cell phone pocket with Velcro, and an adjustable laptop compartment.
  • Be seen in the dark!  Light from auto headlights and streetlights reflects from these packs, dramatically increasing your visibility when riding at night!  Even the Black fabric reflects!
  • Mounting System:  The Ortlieb QL-3.1 Mounting System works without top-hooks.  The QL-3.1 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-3.1 Mounting Bracket, so you can carry your other Ortlieb panniers on the same rack without having to remove the QL-3.1 mounting bracket.
  • 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.
