Does anyone use liners for the factory cases on the 2012/2013 650 Adventure?

I have a 2012 650 Adventure with the factory hard cases and I'm wondering if anyone uses/has the liners.

1. How do you like them?
2. How well are they holding up?
3. What brand are they?

I've been looking at a pair for some time and can't decide what I want to do. Any suggestions or opinions would really help. Thanks.

Several of my friends have liners and love them! I think Mike got some at that closeout place for 35 bucks.

I use Mountainsmith Packing Cubes (the big size). They aren't an exact fit but close enough. I love being able to grab them from the boxes and go, or load them in the house. These bags are great for all sorts of uses. They have a handle on top and a sleeve for a notecard with the packing list. I would get three (2 for the left box).

Here's an example:

Twisted throttle sells the Trax drybag liners for 30.00 each. These fit the Suzuki aluminum cases nicely. I use these in the side cases, convenient to pick things up and go. The side cases do leak in heavy rain. The liners are well constructed and I would recommend them. don't want to overfill as removal would be difficult past the case lip. There is space above the drybag for some storage, rainsuit, water bottles etc.

With panniers I use multiple plastic bags - preferably clear as you know what is in which bag. Four or five per pannier, cheap and easy to replace.

Especially a good idea when riding in rain or dust.

Thanks guys for the info/ideas. I've seen the liners range from anywhere $20.00 each/$5 s&h to $120/$10 s&h for the pair that have 'SUZUKI' on the side. I would like to use something not only to keep my stuff dry but also organized.
