Why you should consider using high-visibility bike bags or a high-visibility backpack

All those who commute to work by bicycle in the darker months of the year and cycle through winter should definitely use high-quality high visibility clothes and accessories.

You’ve probably already experienced how hard it is to see pedestrians in dark clothing in low light and darkness. You often only see them at the last moment. Small reflective details are often not sufficient to increase visibility. You rather have to bring up the big guns.

The high visibility bicycle bags in our range are of a totally different calibre. Thanks to bright fluorescent colours and large reflectors, you can easily see them in poor visibility conditions, which significantly increases your visibility and safety in road traffic.

Dark high-visibility bags and backpacks hide their potential in a clever way. Their dark material comes with interwoven, fine reflective yarns. When hit by headlights, the entire bag turns into a reflector. You wouldn’t expect that from those simple, black bags at first sight. A great alternative for all those looking for a simple bike bag that offers high visibility.

The high-quality ORTLIEB high visibility bags are additionally waterproof. Their robust fabric prevents moisture from penetrating the bag and thus reliably keeps your folder, laptop and shopping dry. Please see the product description for more information on the waterproof rating. You’ll also find the IP codes that tell you more about the fabric’s dust and water resistance.

AT A GLANCE:
  • Bright, easily visible colours and large reflectors improve visibility in low light and darkness.
  • Interwoven reflective threads are a discreet way to increase visibility.
