If you use an Ortlieb Back-Roller, Bike-Packer, you may want to consider the advantages of the Commuter Insert. You pack the Commuter Insert at home — with your laptop, lunchbox, documents, water bottle, pens, smartphone, change of shoes, etc. — and then simply insert it into your pannier. The advantage is that everything stays well organized, nothing goes mysteriously missing, and nothing hides in the depths of your bag. And so you save time and avoid those nervous moments of uncertainty. While the Commuter Insert is ideal for commuters, it’s great to use to organize your gear while on long- (or short-) distance tours.
Stable and tip resistant even when empty
two side mounts for water bottles, etc.
flat mesh pocket (ideal for a bike lock)
foam padding on the sides and bottom
ideal for use with all ORTLIEB Back-Rollers, Bike-Packers and Velo-Shoppers
permits access to the inside pocket of your bike pannier
