Pelican Case Size?

Guess this is the right place to put this, if not please advise. I found what I think may be a really useful product for the Pelican 1550's I have on my bike right now, check this out...

Guess I will ask the guys over there but does anyone here know how many litres the 1550 is? Thanks!

Caribou cases are Pelicans so I'd say they would work great. I'm not sure what size they are, I believe the 1550 is the biggest generally used for side cases though.

There is a guy in the vendor section that makes custom bag liners for the 1550 and others.

I mounted a set of 1550s on my BMW F650GS. I mounted them using 1/2" galvinized conduit clamps onto some commercial racks. I've got about 4K miles on them with no problems. I used o-rings to seal up the bolt holes.
