I purchase a rack and pack over a year ago, and just recently added another pack. I just returned from a 2000 miles Spring tour, going from CT to VA and back. I was camping this time, meeting up with about 20 other riders.
This system worked fantastically. I experienced all kinds of weather, from freezing temps to downpours. My gear stayed dry and secure. No more stops on the side of the road to re-secure stuff, as I've done in the past. The rain cover not only kept things dry but it stayed on, all day sometimes.
I cannot be more satisfied. Now back home, I keep the pack on and am using to put my work/commute stuff in, including my laptop.
Highly recommend your gear, its quality is supreme, its functional, and it looks great with the bike.
I am thinking about another bike, and feel secure I'll be able to transfer most of it to my next ride. Thats comforting to know too.
See you on the road sometime.
