Well, heres mine. Its a little un-conventional but its water proof, lockable, and gets the job done. My tent is behind the bike and thats me unhooking the rig. Tbirdsp took this photo of my setup at SLAP.

they are Givi Voyager throwovers. Not waterproof even with the covers which are on in the photo, as they dont cover the side of the bags towards the wheel. i use Exped dry bags, lightweight nylon bags which can be stuffed full of clothes/books/anything that needs to be kept dry.

Have a look here go to products,then packsacks.

Not even waterproof with rain covers on them and you want to buy a set? You could just buy 100% waterproof German saddlebags, German

Seriously.........

This is my bike set up for a five week Alaska trip........The system I use works fantastic.....

Left Painer:
Tent, First Aid Kit, Rain Gear, Heated Vest, Maps, Extra gloves

Right Painer:
Multi Fuel Lantern, Cook Stove, Coffee Pot, Eating supplies, LapTop Computer..(this painer has 117V outlet with inverter to keep LapTop charged)...Extra space for food bought before campsite

Pelican Case on Rear:
Nikon D70 with three lens, Video Camera, Spotting Scope, Battery Charger, Small TriPod (This Box is electrified with 12V to keep various devices and a bunch of AA batteries charged)

Pelican Case under license plate:
Chain Lube, Rags, Windshield cleaner

Yellow Ortlib Bag:
Clothing, Sleeping Bag, Pillow, Towel, Wash Kit

Blue SeaSafe Bag:
Therma Rest, Chair, Large TriPod

Fake Left Muffler:
Compressor, tire repair kit, tire irons, tools, rags, bailing wire, wire ties, Steel Epoxy Putty, Super Glue

This set up has worked wonderful on many muli week trips. I can break down camp and be underway in 15 minutes or less. Once at camp, the tent comes out of the side painer without disrupting anything else, Once the tent is up, the Yellow Ortlib Bag is placed in the vestibule where sleeping Bag, Pillow, and clothing is removed out of the rain. On many trip I don't bother putting the tent back into its stuff sack in the morning, I simply stuff it into the Painer, ready for the next evening.......Saves lots of time.
The entire system is 100% dust and water proof. On the Alaska trip (5 weeks), lots of folks were having problems with dust getting into everything, especially their sleeping gear. The Ortlib bags are absolutly fantastic. Couples with the superior GIVI N41 painers, I nevr had a bit of dust inside anything.This Ortlib bag has been through hell and back for nearly 10 years and is still 100% sound. The Blue SeaSafe bag didn't last the Alaska Trip. It had a few holes in it where the contents had rubbed through. Duct Tape fixed it for the ride, but it has been replaced by another Ortlib.

That'a Helen2Wheels bag on top and in front, the Pelican is a 1510, the ATA approved carry on size box, with a lid organizer.
I removed the wheel's and extending handle off it.
The H2W's bag's are great, and when I had a problem with one of mine last year ( there was a small batch with defective fabric), Helen sent me out a new one right away, great customer service.
The reflictive strip is great because you can actually get your straps through it, making it even more secure, and not allowing the bag to wiggle out from underneath your straps.
Those are mini Rok Straps that hold on the bag in back, in that pic there's 2 ThermaRest prolite 4 pads, and 2 Big Agnes down sleeping bags in the bag.

What about the camp fire?

After viewing 8 pages of tents and air mattresses it looks like I'm the only camper who likes a fire...
