I know of the Givi E21 and I think the Pelican 1440's. Are there any other sidecases that are top loading?

Happy trails, Touratech, and Jesse are top loading too.

Hepco and Becker have top loaders plus the Givi Monolock (?) series are side loaders with a small opening top flap for access to the box without fully opening the side.

Givi E41's are "quazi" top loading. They have a small opening to grab a pair of gloves or something but are mostly a clam shell design.

I have the E41s "Keyless" bags. They are primarily clamshell, and have a small flip-top section which is opened by combination lock to access stuff at the top of the bag.

I like them because I can get my raingear out without opening the entire bag. For the most part, if I pack a bag full... I'm not opening it on the bike (it's coming into the house/hotel with me as luggage) so the clamshell works nicely.

If you want close-up pictures of the flip section, just let me know.

I was looking at top loaders for ease of use. My last bike had side opening side cases which I even had liners for but even with those it was a pain sometimes making sure nothing got stuck in the hinge when you tried to close them.
