I've been looking for some top-loading side cases, and these look really good. I like the less boxy shape than other aluminum panniers, the corner braces are nice, and the tiedowns look especially well thought-out. Wish they were available a month sooner though, I'll be on the road already in june.

more info & photos

Here's the link to a pdf on sw-motech's site with more info and pictures (including the mounting brackets) and some info on their new quick-lock EVO racks, which supposedly fit closer to the bike...

At least you can buy them singly if you need to, rather than having to by a pair if you damage one. They do look nice though.

They are looking pretty sweet,

The Liner bag is also extra; bummer.

Do anyone else feel like the dimensions are very similar to the surplus military "mermite can". and with the angled corner these are getting close to the round corners of the mermite cans too.
