Caribou case liners?

Any of you guys added these caribou case liners to your 1550s or had them installed with the Caribou set? They look interesting. I'm wondering if I can make something similar with some stiff canvas from the fabric shop.

I have homemade versions for my Seahorse SE520s and 720s - for the 520s a cut up re-usable grocery bag was the perfect size. For the 720s I just cut some vinyl to size. Both use adhesive velcro to stay attached to the cases. Only issue is in the summer months that adhesive doesn't want to stay on the vinyl if you leave the case open for too long.

Think you could post a pic or two.

Looking at the pictures, they don't really look like liners, more of door/lid hinge management system for not allowing the lid to fully open and allowing things to fall out. I use TT panniers and instead of paying their 80$ liners, I went to REI and bought a nylon stuff sack for the one side that has the items I'm not worried about if they get wet. The other side I bought a sea bag (water proof roll top for kayakes), as that's where my clothes and computer are. So far they have been working fine, no issues. Much less expensive alternative I'm sure.

I only have pics of the 520 cases at the moment:





I definitely liked using the cloth bag over the vinyl I have now - the creases hold their shape.
