The Ortlieb Back Roller City is a pannier made out of waterproof PVC coated polyester with a roll closure and this pannier is suitable for rear carriers. Its Quick-Lock 1 system is suitable for carriers with a tube diameter of 16 mm. The bag is also equipped with large reflectors. The Back-Roller City (pair) has a total volume of 40 liters.
Very pleased with the Ortlieb panniers. Very good design and robust to meet the challenges of British weather. Great idea to add reflective panels. A good safety feature.
Good sturdy material
Clips are robust and stong
Rerefective panels - added safety

Great waterproof bags with a simple clever design
I bought these for a forthcoming 12 day cycle tour in Spain and have tried them out a couple of times in UK. I had previously thought Ortlieb bags were too expensive but the quoted price is for two panniers which is fantastic value and provides plenty of space for touring. These are properly waterproof which means you don't have to worry about rain covers or stuffing your items into plastic bags. The fitting and removal is easy peasy.
Price is for the pair
Plenty of space
would benefit from a small outer pocket
