happy trails vs Caribou

ok I need help... they are basically the same size at 35 liters...

http://www.happy-trail.com/Aluminum%...%20Versys.aspx
$660ish with shipping... it used to be a lot more expensive and I counted it out but now it's reasonable...


http://cariboucases.com/store/?name=...=i&item=000204
810ish with shipping but I can order it in orange which would stick out more plus it is a pelican case and has a lifetime warranty... and you could use it for other things... it also uses hepco becker racks... and total weight is 35lbs

I've had both on different motorcycles. The Caribou set up has been great, no problems or leaks. I've been a couple of problems with Happy Trails products, but they have great customer service and have always taken care of me. All that said, Happy Trails has a free shipping offer now, $599 that is a deal.

I have also had them both, and both are equally functional. I would remind you, however, that if you make a serious error in judgment concerning a water crossing, the Caribou cases will allow you to see the entire back in of your bike floating down stream due to their buoyancy.
