Very well designed. Just takes a few minutes to figure out how you want it set up exactly and then they work great. Most of the time mine just holds a bottle carrier and a small pouch, but I will also strap on larger bags when necessary. They also act as great grab handles when you drop the bike. Highly recommend!
But you really need more stuff in stock.
I purchased this rack mainly to carry extra fuel because really, who wants to run out of go-juice in the middle of nowhere? I have realized how truly versatile this rack is however, and will be using it for much more than just fuel.
It feels extremely well made, with top notch materials.
It is very versatile. I even ordered a bag snake after I realized how versatile this rack is.
To me, it moves from one bike to another with even more ease than advertised.
It is molle compatible*
*While it is molle compatible, I've found that it is a VERY tight fit to get some of my molle straps through the daisy chain loops. Which is good for security, but can be quite frustrating.
This is just nitpicking, but I would prefer the tags be on the underside of the rack.
All in all, 5/5 would recommend this rack system.
I bought this to hold a soft cooler or dry bag on the back of the seat. It installed quickly and easily and holds one of the 20l dry bags very securely using a bag snake kit. I have yet to try the dry bags as panniers with this rack, but I have no doubt it would be a secure convenient setup. Thanks!
