Need recommendation for top box

Good day
I am looking for recommendations for a top box. I currently have a cocase wizard (38L?)installed that came with the bike. Can’t seem to find parts for this case so looking to replace it. I do not need a huge box, however it does need to be big enough to hold an XL Arai helmet. I do not have a shop close to me that has anything on display, so I would be looking to special order/get something online. Local shop would charge me restocking fee if the case is too big/small for what I want.
Any recommendations appreciated

Bestem top boxes are inexpensive and work. Come in several sizes
They are not as strong as a Givi if you are looking for super security.
Mine is water tight and my helmet fits easily.

Would be awesome to know what bike you ride dude.

Suzuki canada had a sale not too long ago on kits for the 650.

Ah yes. Sorry about that. It’s a 14 650. I have two sets of kappa side bags that came with it 22 and 40 L So not looking for the whole set (sounded like a great deal though)
I usually ride with only the top box unless on a longer ride when I use the side bags also
Thanks

I just purchased a top case from Eric at Solobox in WA state. Very well made and made in USA in his garage. $239. I believe that is shipped but I picked mine up in person so am not positive on that. You can reach Eric at 360-840-7139. Phone is the best way to contact him. Can anyone tell me how to get photos to come in right-side up? Sorry for the twist.
