Yes they are heavy, about 20 lb each. I'm a big guy so the extra weight doesn't really matter to me. The weight is lower and noticeably different than just using a top case. These are fairly small compared to my givis, so they are on for my usual riding day trips. When I'm gone for longer it's a 10 minute job to put the givis back on. The buffeting seems better than the E460's I use.
They don't lock, I could easily weld on a hoop to use with a padlock, but I don't keep anything of value in there, if someone steals my water bottle I figure they need it more than I do.
