Quiz: Who developed the first bike cargo racks compatible with full suspension? Old Man Mountain (a.k.a. OMM). They were tired of going bike camping with their full suspension bikes and backpacks on their backs.
The founders of OMM developed these racks because nobody else did. No one considered this type of bicycle as a viable option for touring and bike-camping. So instead of buying new bikes they made our own racks.
The OMM racks are top-of-the-line racks, that withstand many hours of riding and tons of gear. Combine a front rack and a rear rack from OMM and you can carry 100 pounds. Take the kitchen sink if you want.
Old Man Mountain pannier have withstood the abuse of countless bicycle tours and have earned the respect of many riders, manufacturers, and organizations.
