24-litre Ortlieb Rack Pack, £46.80
Miles covered/time: 2157/one week (Austria and back)
What’s good? This might just be the perfect tail pack. At under £50 the Ortlieb Rack Pack is incredibly good value. The simple design and roll down closure ensure it stays 100% waterproof, while a single main compartment means there’s no chance of losing something in an utterly pointless and awkward to use side pocket found on other tail packs.
Available in three sizes, the smallest size is ideal for long weekends away and will take a couple of changes of clothes, shoes and a toilet bag. Fill it up, roll it down, bungee it on and forget it. Perfect. All sizes are available in black, red, yellow, grey, white/black.
What’s not? The hose pipe handles are a bit weird.
