Your beloved ORTLIEB bag has a hole, a tear or other defect? ORTLIEB products stand for sustainability and durability. This also includes a professional repair.

Our customers expect ORTLIEB products to be durable and repairable just in case something should happen to break. After all, the subject of product repairability has always been part of our genetic make-up.

And we are continuously working on expanding this service network. By doing so, we save our customers long waiting times and are able to shorten shipping routes. 

We're happy to now offer this service here in Canada!

If your bag has already exceeded the warranty or the defect was self-inflicted, then you are in the right place here for repairs.

  • You can submit a repair request using the Repair Form found here.
  • It is important for us that you describe the fault as accurately as possible, ideally with pictures.
  • You will then receive an RMA number for your request along with return instructions.
  • Please send your product back free of dirt and sweat. A human will be repairing your bag, please be kind and remove grime and dirt before shipping it back. We reserve the right to charge a cleaning fee if required.
  • Please package the item securely so that it arrives safely. We are not responsible for damage sustained in shipping.
  • Only after the defect has been inspected by our trained staff can we estimate the cost of a repair accurately.

At the same time, we will dispose of your old product professionally and free of charge.

If this is the case and your bag is at the end of it's road, we will reach out (with appropriate sympathy) with replacement product suggestions.
