The Ortlieb Handlebar-Pack S is a member of the compact class of bikepacker handlebar rolls. With a length of only 40 cm, this waterproof handlebar roll is the right selection for bikepackers with off-road drop bars, road-bike handlebars or hybrid-bike handlebars. Although this handlebar roll has a narrow width and is especially lightweight, it offers a payload of 9 liters, which means it gives you ample space for large-volume, but lightweight items such as sleeping bags and sleeping pads. The roll closures on both sides enable quick and convenient access while reliably keeping your stuff dry even in the pouring rain.
The Handlebar-Pack S can be securely attached to any handlebar type using the mounting system, which consists of spacers and two sturdy and highly adhesive Velcro straps. The special material that stiffens the inside of the bag and its secure attachment to your head tube guarantee stability even on rough terrain.

Excellent product. The 9L fits perfectly between the drop bars on my touring bike. On my mountain bike I was able to attach it securely without interfering with the cables ( the spacers allow room for the cables).
A quality and sturdy product, like other stuff made by the manufacturer. The only downside is that this installation is a bit cumbersome, as it doesn't get the sack off quickly, but you have to remove the whole set from the bar with all the straps and the like. This is annoying. The bar spacers are sturdy, but there are too few of them. Personally, I made extra blocks from the old sleeping pad and then only the sack started to sit. As a bike Giant Revolt 1 in size M / L.
Feeling good quality. Rolling must be done carefully, otherwise the water will crawl from the end in heavy rain. It was difficult to mount the mountain bike on a wide straight rod when the brake hoses and gear cables are exactly where the bag should go. Eventually I loosened the handlebar and rotated it to get the handles / hoses / cables better. Then I was able to compose the package so that the brake hoses and cables did not bend, and the package did not press the plastic tray against the tire. The driving feel changed a bit when the brake levers and gear levers are in the wrong place, but it didn’t bother me much on the road trip. The terrain would be more annoying, but get used to it as well. In another fillar, installation may be more convenient. This 9-liter model could hold a lightweight 800 g down sleeping bag and down jacket when stuffed, and there might seem to be a little something small at some point as well.
