I like the Pelican 1520 cases.



There is a convertible Travel bag available from Pelican, that fits exactly in the 1520.

That "liner" seems to me to be a huge space-waster.

I just some of these for hard-bag liners. They take up no room of their own (or weight) and pretty much take the shape of any space you put them into. They work perfectly in my Givi E36's and even fold up inside their own side pocket to store as an emergency packing bag or bag for my 'Stich. I keep one in my tank bag for just eventualities. In a pinch, you can throw it over your shoulder and use to carry stuff home in.

Plus, they are cheap. That's always the best thing.

You're mixing your metaphors:
Dry as a bone.
Smooth as a baby's bottom. (they're often not dry)

I agree.

"Photo Equipment" for me consists of that little hole in the back of my iPhone...

I carry that in my front shorts pocket (I almost always wear shorts on the bike -if it is cold I'm wearing long ultrafleece pants over that. It's the perfect layering arrangement inside a 'stich).


The ultra-thin liner bags I linked to are not at all good for padding anything delicate. The iPhone is the most delicate piece of equipment I'll bring on the road other than a cheapo Nuvi 200 GPS that lives in the tank bag map pocket.

I can only find a system for about $800 online, where did you find yours?

If you buy the pre-made system like Caribou, it'll cost you a lot. If you bargain-hunt the cases on eBay, you can get the bulk of the system for quite a bit less. That's what I did, but have yet to actually mount them. I'll probably end up buying one of the Caribou DIY kits.

Classy way to welcome someone to ADVRider. Did you have anything useful to add?

Get just the mounting kits. The cases are stock Pelican items and can be picked up on-line for less than Caribou wants for them.

I have found Adorama and Masco cases to be inexpensive sources. Search the case you are looking for in thier search bar.
