Great deal on Ortlieb bags from Bestbuy!!!

Maybe someone mentioned it already but I happened to come across this today while searching for some ortlieb bags...

Just go to Bestbuy and search Ortlieb.
Most of bags listed are half the price of MSRP. I don't think I saw this type of deal before! (mostly classic version...)

Office bag is only $67!!! Best thing for commuting in my honest opinion.

This is where I got my panniers came from. They got to my house two days after I ordered. And you are right, they are one of the best commute helpers.

I would never imagine BestBuy to carry anything associated with bicycles. But, very very good deal indeed. Too bad it doesn't fit my purposes

I got a gift card to Best Buy and that is what I used to buy these. I too thought I wouldn't be able to get anything like this from them. I was just browsing the categories and found electric bicycle accessories. Very glad I was just dinking around because I LOVE these panniers.

$71.99 for the front roller panniers? That's for a pair, right?

If you search for Ortlieb at Best Buy, it will yield two options: Ortlieb USA or Ortlieb (which has more of a selection). I clicked on the white Back Roller... the description says "....bag".

Ditto. I've already got a set of panniers, and ones that I like quite a bit. But things might have gone differently if I'd seen this when I got mine...

that's interesting, I had noticed they had some expensive bags there for laptops, never noticed any Ortliebs though.

Dam, no rack pack. Would have ordered that in a heart beat.

Probably someone higher up in the Sales/Marketing food chain thought it would be a good idea to have some accessories to offer people who bought e-bikes from them. Looks like they are offering helmets, gloves, and locks as well.

This could be for a single bag. The MSRP makes me think it's for a pair, but who knows....

If this is for a pair is that a really good deal?

Yes it's a killer deal if it is for two bags. I called and the person who was absolutely no help to me says one bag, but it didn't sound like she was sure. She was looking at the same page as I was and just reciting what was written on the website.

As I mentioned earlier, I ordered these when I saw this deal. During the shipping process I was wondering if it was for a pair or a single. Thankfully it is for the pair, you can see the weight matches up with Ortlieb's official weight (for the pair). I got the back black roller classic by the way.

Screaming deals. Thanks for posting.

I just spent 15 min browsing and trying to convince myself that I NEEDED some more bike schwag. That little handlebar bag with its slick cable mounting almost pulled me in, and my back rollers are probably lonely without front roller buddies, who cares if I'm not sporting a front rack at the moment. Ultimately, in a rare fit of restraint, even I didn't hop on board. I'm stunned.

Trying to talk myself into buying the shopping bag. Have one question: does it fold flat? I'd like for it not to puff out. I have another "grocery" type pannier, but it's kinda puffy. If possible, I'd like to fold into the bike like the wald folding basket, but without the rattle, of course.

I am trying hard to convince myself that I should get something with these great deals, but I am too cheap I guess and my setup works pretty good.

Shinybiker, look at this page and the links from there.

I eye-balled the Ortlieb grocery bag a while back. It does not fold flat on the bike, it hangs there in all its puffy splendor. It looks pretty much the same as the back roller except it has the ziploc-like thing on the top instead of the roll closure. For grocery shopping on any but the rainiest days, you can just leave the backroller unrolled and you're good for a grocery bag, complete with baguettes a waving. I saw no need to consider the grocery bag.

I wouldn't get the grocery bag. Zippers tend to go out of track after frequent use and then you have to worry about the seams ripping. The roller design keeps things simple. Less things for stuff to go wrong. It folds flat when you don't have a load. The grocery bags are larger, don't know by how much, but it can't be much, you can put a lot of stuff in the back rollers.

Apparently Ortlieb only sells panniers in pairs. I have seen more than one thread in touring where someone was grousing about that, after having damaged one of a pair.

+1 Go for the roller pair for grocery shopping, works the best!



You can see the right one in the pic is just barely closed with the top strap, means lots of volume and keeps stuff from flying out. As mentioned though, this won't work as well in the rain.
