10mi ride to work every day, this panniers holds all of my bike tools rain gear, lunch and change of clothes. Easy mount on and off the bike, great construction!

Great Pannier! The mounting system is easy to use, and very secure. They look nicer than the Ortliebs (not a fan of the plasticky material), and the pockets are nice.

One feature I would like would be some reflective bits.

I've used two of these bags for about a year now. I commute to work (10 miles, round trip) carrying BIG loads every day: old, *heavy* 17" laptop, lunch, papers, rain gear, clothing, tools, and lots of random items. The bags handle oversize loads well and show no wear. The waterproofing works great. The quick latches hold well and make it easy to lift the bags off my rear rack. I have used one, occasionally, as a shoulder bag. The strap is adequate for short walks. I've used many panniers and packs over my commuting career (20+ years) and these are my favorite, by far.

I have a 15 mile round trip commute to and from work in SF. Tough bag, solid construction, buckles and straps are great, interior has just enough grippy-ness, the "Klick-Fix" hardware connection to your bike rack is top notch. Connection to my blackburn rack is super solid, I can hit huge potholes or have to slam on my brakes and I've never felt this bag shift or bounce once... I rode with this pannier loaded down with my video gear and it performed great. Adjustable to hold just some clothes or an entire video kit (if organized neatly ;) I will certainly be buying another bag so I can evenly distribute weight on my bike.

I bought my coffee Retro 20 in early 2014 and have used it all through the last year. I am thoroughly pleased with the quality of the product. I commute to work a couple miles each way on a flatbar commuter bike and hang it on a Topeak Super Tourist DX rear Pannier frame. I load my computer, thermos, and a couple of files in the inner pocket and smaller items like wallet, bike pump, pens, etc. in the outer pocket. The pack sits securely on the frame and I've had no issues of it coming loose, swinging into my foot when I go over bumps, and although I thought it might rub the back of my leg when I pedal, it doesn't. The quality of the Retro 20 shows in that there are no loose threads anywhere on the pack like typical lower quality packs without good finished seams. The adjustments make it easy to really fill it completely with both hard and soft items. Finally, the best thing about moving from commuting with a backpack to a pannier is that it gets that load off my back and puts it low on the bike so it seems much easier to ride with a heavy pack..and I don't have sweat dripping down my back from the backpack. This is a great product.
