Have only used the carry handles so far. They are built sturdy and are more convenient than the built in handles on my Givi Trekker Alaskan panniers.
They will definitely get some long term use as I use the panniers everyday for all kinds of riding, rain, shine, mud, and lots of fog.
I bought the GCAG Pannier Bundle for a big trip in June. I will be on a two week trip with a mix of camping and hotels, so I wanted something to easily haul the panniers in and out of cabins/hotel rooms. I had handles that came with the panniers but the GCAG ones are so much better. I really like the low profile set up. This is high quality gear! Looking forward to putting it to use soon.
Exactly what I wanted ... light , simple , and they work ! You get way more for your $ and they are less expensive than the factory or some other companies on the market . Would recommend to anyone lugging their panniers around off their bike or need to attach more gear . Buy without fear ! + help support a small business in the adv game .
Just what I needed. Fast shipping too!
A bit pricey, but much better straps than Rokstraps.
