Ortlieb Ultimate 6 High-Visibility Medium Waterproof Handlebar Bag
- Reflective strands are woven directly into the Ortlieb High-Visibility fabric! Light from auto headlights and streetlights reflects from these packs, dramatically increasing your visibility when riding at night!
- The Neon-Yellow Reflex fabric is terrific for both day and night visibility! The Black Reflex fabric is not bright in the daytime, but is still night-time reflective!
- The Reflective Neon color is hard to describe. Because of the reflectivity, the color value of light sources dramatically affects the appearance of the bags. In the photos below you will see color variations from different lighting sources. Viewed outdoors in daylight, there is an obvious yellow/green tint to the neon bags, but the tint varies with the time of day, and whether you are in direct sunlight, riding on a cloudy day or, or riding after dark. After dark, the color varies from one type of headlight or streetlight to another. Under 3500K indoor florescent lighting the photos appear quite yellow. Photos taken under daylight balanced indoor LED lights, approximately 5500K, have a definite yellow/green tint, so it is very difficult to take accurate photos of these bags. This is great looking fabric, regardless of the color value!
- Wayne is a HUGE fan of these new High-Vis packs. “I feel like drivers are far less likely to run over me in traffic if they see me — unless they don’t like me! Whenever I am asked “what color should I get,” I always say “something bright.” These are the ultimate bright panniers. You must ride with them day and night to experience the the full range of visibility. They are amazing!
- These packs are great for all around use, touring or commuting.
