Surly or Nitto rack?

Stuck between the Nitto MtCampee and the Surly Nice for my rear rack.
It's going on the blue schwinn (88 Sierra) so the canti mounts on the Campee wont help much because the rear brake is a U on the chainstay.
They're both about the same price and same quality from what I can tell.
Anyone have any opinions on either? Or other suggestions?
Gotta be silver, black rack just wont do right on a bike like this.

Both are solid; I lean towards Nitto, mostly b/c it's a bit less common and I like to stand out .

The Surly is a little stronger, the Nitto is a little (ok, a lot) prettier

I'm going to give the Dajia Expedition rack a try once they're back in stock. A matching front lowrider rack is coming soon.
