I can stuff toploaders a lot easier than my side loaders (regardless of brand) , and strap the 75L Sealine bag over the top - good to go. Perhaps if I got more organized... ? Anyway, I have sideloaders on my girlie - work great for road trips. It's a lot like tire choices - & really about what you're going to use the machine for. I've had Cariboo cases & liked em' - were good frame pucks too - slide well, instead of catching on rocks like metal. But just couldnt pack em tight enough for my needs / purposes.
After I striped some unnecessary handles off the ammo cases they each weighed in at 18lbs. Happy trails site lists the weight of their similarly sized box at 12.5lbs. I can live with that difference.
