I'm pretty comfortable in most gravel with 32mm. But I bumped my C-dale up to 35mm (because I could) and my Nishiki Semi Pro up to 38mm (because I could). That may be as far as my fat-gravel-tire experimentation goes. Unless I score too-good-to-pass-up deal on a nice set of 650b rims (inevitable, eventually).

I'm glad I tried it, but I don't think I've ever ridden on a road that 'needs' anything bigger than 35mm. Including quite a bit of PNW single track.
