Familiarity: I've used it several times

Ortlieb has become the first name in Panniers for a reason. from the second you take these bags out of the box, the quality is apparent. No corner is cut and every piece of fabric used is thick, durable and waterproof.

The panniers come with two straps, clip adapters for rack tubing of various sizes. As front panniers they're smaller than the traditional rear bags. So do pay attention to the above listed dimensions. I find that just one of them perfectly fits a sweater, a storm shell, a Balaclava, a set of gloves, a pollution mask. And is still half empty after. So they carry a surprising amount of cargo given their compact size.
Properly adjusted they fit very securely, and the lift of design has been flawless. releasing only when desired, never by accident.

I know these bags will take care of me for years to come!

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Fit: True to size

Gave this item to my wife as she had many fashionable coats, but none for serious winter weather. Coat actually has a very stylish cut to it. Is long enough to fully cover the hips. And is toasty without feeling heavy. She loves it!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Originally bought as a commuter tire, I found the 700x43 version excellent on mixed terrain and in mixed weather. I have faster rolling tires for those warm summer days. But for anything less than perfect asphalt on a warm day. The Gravelking had traction to spare. Casing is at the durable end of medium toughness.

For a tire with this much tread, it is fairly fast rolling!

Got a set of GravelKing SK, 77x43 For my all weather commuter/bikepacker. Mounted on my Soma Wolverine.

Panaracer excels at making fast rolling, fluffy tires that ride like a dream. this tire rolls more along the lines of a medium quality 35c. Which is terrific for a tire with this much dampening. everything short of mud and boulders can be handled by this tire.

Not a mountain bike tire. but as close as you can get to one without suffering serious issues with rolling resistance.

For commuters, Tourers, moderate Dirt Tourers. bad weather riding. This tire is as close as they come to a jack of all trades!

These headsets start out incredibly smooth, and thanks to the nature of their angular contact bearings they actually get smoother with age. Once every few years have them greased and they will last you decades.

Every part of this headset is made in Chris King's state of the art factory in Portland, Oregon. This level of attention to detail is what elevates this item to an almost cult like following. I personally have upgraded to a King on my last 3 bikes.

As beautiful as they are practical, They have a habit of outliving the bicycles they're installed on. Buy one, you won't regret it!
