Perfect size to carry your oh **** kit. Love the mounting system for under the saddle, easy on and off. It works on all three of my bikes, but didn't work on my husband's, but I think that is an anomaly. The reflective patch is a nice touch too.
After 3 years of daily use the pannier is only suitable for use in dry weather (holes forming at corners and folds). Not a bad run, I bought a new set to use in the rain.
Ive used this rack many times now and find it easy to operate. It has a very snug fit and leaves me feeling comfortable that my bike is safe. It also has a very clean finish that looks sharp. This is the best rack that Ive ever owned and Ive had several.
So, I live in a forest with a mile of gravel road to get to asphalt. That led me to get a gravel bike (bike number 8). Then I needed a water bottle cage - my gravelly was a lightweight Specialized Diverge - in black - and the Blackburn Bottle cage was PERFECT! It works like a champ. I have used Blackburn products in the past with little to no disappointment, where they have exceeded expectations and this bottle cage is no exception!
