Great value for money
The Front Roller Plus bags by Ortlieb are exactly what you expect from the market leader in cycling bags.
Affordable cycling bags of good quality. The ‘Plus’ I found out means mainly that there is a convenient insert area in the bag that’s good for safekeeping small stuff. Stuff that mustn’t be squashed under the weight of other stuff, or for easy retrieving… like maps and spare parts. Also the Plus bag is easily folded and looks a bit more sexy then the Classic Front Rollers, which have a plasticy look I don’t like. The one short but heavy shower I encountered during my first trip with the bags, made the bags moist on the outside, but within everything stayed dry as promised (as it says ‘waterproof’ on the outside).
The size is perfect for use on the front, as they are a little bit smaller then the Back Rollers. This prevents you from having to much weight pulling on your handlebar.
Definitely a good buy when you’re looking for a good value for money that is just a little bit more sexy and convenient then the Classic Ortlieb bags.
