Not bad, there is no fancy quick release mounting hardware to F#@& the geometry up on. Unless you cound 2 bolts as fancy. Boxes themselves are as robust as most any other aluminium box. Hit it just right and you'll you'll get damage. The angled bottom helps vs. crushing a sharp edge like some others. Mine's only had simple tip-overs though. Add some speed and or obstacles for them to crumple into and it could be a different story. If you expect to be crashing a lot, you might consider soft panniers. The Wolfman Rocky Mountain/Expedition panniers will fit on the same Happy Trail rack down the road if you want to have both. Just keep you feet on the pegs if you do go down, it sucks getting yer foot caught under metal panniers.
