Possible cheap toploader case

Found these gonna order some soon and check them out. Anybody else running them yet??

https://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-Wea.../dp/B00SKCO920

I'll add this here I was looking for a smaller plastic top loading side case for day trips that don't cost $150 per case, I already have 25L Mosko Moto scout panniers, two 50L moose racing epedition side cases, and a 58L givi trekker outback top case. I've already been through a set of side loading seahorse cases that were great cases I'm just not a fan of side loading

Great for the price, I may go for the Harborfreight 4800 instead. Caribou case is what I really want but......DAMN, could get this or the HF case with the Caribou rack kit and be much cheaper in price.

Is the HF top loading that's what I'm after I had a sweet set of seahorse cases and loved them except the side loading.

That IM2435 would be the trick but $150 a case is way more than I want to spend for it.

awfully small 9.9 liters for $30 - my tank bag is 3 x the size.

You can get good looking 23 liter Shads for about $100 each
fits a 15" laptop and very light.

Maybe so, but personally, for that size capacity, I'm pretty sure I'd just opt for a small duffel bag bungee-netted to the back seat. Hope they work out for ya. Those Harborfreight 4800 look like a much more useful size.
