Verified Buyer Reviewed by Gregor from Colorado on Sunday, September 4, 2016I love Ortlieb bags and have used one for 10 years without fail. This is a nice bag with rain cover and a very secure connection to any bike rack. It is compact and sturdy, attractive and timeless. Only downsides are that I would welcome interior dividers between the laptop and other papers and additional small pockets for memory keys and adaptors. Otherwise it is a beautiful product for someone who bikes to work daily and wants a quick way of connecting a laptop bag to a bike.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Andrew from Idaho on Tuesday, August 23, 2016My Macbook Pro 15" fits into this bag, albeit somewhat snugly. The sister bag to this one that is vertically-oriented would not work. It seems like a good bag so far though I have yet to try it on the rack.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Johnny 2 times, 2 times from NYC on Saturday, June 18, 2016For $25 this was a fantastic buy. Perfect for my short commute to work. The bag is well built as expected from Ortlieb. I like that this bag looks stylish off the bike, you can walk into a meeting or restaurant without looking like you're about to climb a mountain or go on a cross country trek like Ortlieb and others' standard offerings. The QL3 system is great, it puts all the hardware on the rack, not the bag, so there's no hooks poking into you when it's on your shoulder. You wouldn't even think it's anything other than a normal tote bag off the bike. My only knock on it is that it's extremely simple. There's only one small divided zipper pocket inside that's just big enough for a set of keys and that's it, no laptop sleeve or divider so you'll probably want to keep your laptop in a sleeve or small case. It's a bit firm and there's no compression straps or pockets so when it's not loaded up the contents tend to bounce around. It's just big enough for a laptop, coffee mug, spare shirt, and maybe a small jacket,. It also comes with a small, packable rain cover which I haven't need yet but will as the material isn't waterproof and seems absorbent.
