Does anyone have or use one? What do you think?

I just ordered one. I'll post a review when I get it.

I picked one up for under 1/2 price at a VO garage sale. The frame I intend to put it on has yet to arrive from the U.K.
I love the aesthetic of the rack, and the construction quality & feel is sublime.
BUT, I'm not convinced that I'll want to leave those low-riders on all the time. They are a serious skirt. If you're carrying matched (weight) panniers, then I suspect nothing will be finer. For the routine runs with modest weights, a simple rack will do. Thus, why the very expensive and glorious Campee may not be worth the coin -- unless you're really going . . . campee-ing. ;-)
I also find the Nitto w/o the low-riders to be a very small rear rack. I'm suspending judgement until I can put it onto the forth-coming 60cm frame.
Still, the thing is amazing eye candy. I often leave it sitting in the middle of my bench top, just so I can admire it on my return.

I considered one for my Voyageur. I'm not likely to do any fully loaded touring and I didn't have the cash at the time to buy them for the eye candy factor. I bought the Dajia Expedition and I think it's a great rack for the money.
That said, I'm interested in the the VO Camping racks due later this year.

Well, I got it. A bit of a splurge, especially for my bicycle. It should be the only rack I'll ever want or need, preventing a costly upgrade.
