I recently purchased an Ortlieb Ultimate 5 Plus handlebar bag from a popular online touring supplies distributor. About a month after I installed the bag one of the enclosure snaps broke as detailed in these pictures.
I contacted the distributor and he replaced the bag at no cost to me. Unfortunately the new bag also broke quickly. Has anybody had this problem with this type of bag? Were you able to resolve the issue? I probably can get another replacement bag but I figure the same thing will happen again.
Anybody have any ideas or been able to fix the snaps on their bag so this doesn't happen again? I thought maybe sanding the edge of the snap down might reduce the pressure required to release the snap and prevent the snap from pulling loose.
While we are at it, can anybody recommend a good handlebar bag that I could purchase that will be more durable than this one. I have Ortlieb panniers and would like the handlebar bag to match but I am starting to think about having have to go with something else.
Thanks and happy riding!
