I like the looks of the GL stuff and how it seems to carry the load down low but how durable are they? What I have read seems to suggest they are pretty tough bags but if you lay the bike down in the rocks or wash out in a turn and go down how are the GL bags going to fare?
Another thread seemed to complain that they were not truly waterproof... lots of rain and lots of water crossings on some of the rides I am on so this would be a major issue for me.
