    Looking at cases and the prices are pretty steep on some of them, I ran across these on a search they look pretty good.

    I think I'm going to get a giant loop but I might want hard cases for a road trip I'm doing next year. Are people running these and liking them?

    I have a Giant Loop great basin, Wolfman expedition bags and rack. I will be ordering a set of those caribou set up storms. With the Wolfman rack you can run either soft or hard whenever you want. The great basin is cool and works best on my DR with no racks.

    What's the advantage of side-loading cases? I haven't found any apart from the fact that they can be expandable (not all are)...

    Being able to have a load over the top of the boxes and still being able to open them is one advantage, price is another.
