Product Description


Ortlieb Downtown 2 Plus QL2.1 Pannier

The Ortlieb Downtown is a particularly handsome, waterproof briefcase/pannier, featuring Ortlieb's amazing QL Quick Lock system.

Robust QL (Quick Lock) rack hooks are a stand-out Ortlieb pannier feature. They offer total security – this pannier will never jump off the rack - yet its easy-on easy-off action is so intuitive and effort free, one of our customers was moved to described it as “so simple, it’s like witchcraft”.

The benefit of the QL2.1 version is that it can be set up (no tools required) to adapt to an even wider variety of rear rack configurations and dimensions than the original QL1 system. Coming with inserts, the pannier hooks can fit racks with 8, 10, 12 or 16mm top rails, as described in Ortlieb's own video.

This video perfectly illustrates how Ortieb's QL hooks tenaciously secure the bag to the rear rack, yet offer instant release - simply by lifting the bag upwards by its handle.

  • Waterproof briefcase (single bag) with flap closure adjustable in height
  • Available in two material versions: PU-laminated Cordura or PVC-laminated polyester
  • Quick access flap closure with one metal hook
  • QL2.1 system for racks up to 16 mm, compatible with all standard racks up to 16 mm diameter, adjustable without any tools
  • Including reduction pieces for tube diameters 8, 10 and 12 mm with anti-scratch function preventing abrasions on the carrier
  • Thanks to the rotatable mounting the bag can be mounted on the left (standard) or the right side
  • For mounting on the right side: open the outer screws on the bar, remove caps on back side of the bag, rotate the bar and fix the screws, put caps onto previous no longer used holes and tighten screws
  • Lower hook rail made of two-component „hard-soft" synthetic prevents abrasions on carrier
  • Padded sleeve for laptop or mobile end devices (10.6 in. x 15.7 in. x 1.2 in.)
  • Inner compartments with pockets
  • Carrying handle and wide, adjustable and removable padded shoulder strap
  • Reflective Ortlieb logo
  • Two highly luminous 3M Scothlite reflectors
  • Dimensions: 31cm tall x 40cm wide x 14cm deep.
  • 1,290g
  • German engineered the Ortlieb way - see our blog.

'The Downtown is a reliable companion on your tour through the morning or evening rush hour. The waterproof bike briefcase provides secure cargo carrying plus reliable protection of files, documents and laptops up to 15.4".

A hands-free way to carry your everyday digital and off line essentials, this waterproof bike briefcase with lid closure can be quickly mounted and taken off the rack single-handed.

It features an extra wide padded shoulder strap and additional carry handle for comfortable transport.

Edge protectors and base feet on the rear and bottom ensure optimal protection of the bag.

Two large 3M Scotchlite reflectors and a reflective ORTLIEB logo and handle ensure safety in the dark and in bad conditions. Downtown can be mounted on the right or left side of the rack.'
