As my second post, I thought I'd put in a good word for the people who make the great soft luggage I've been using for the past 28 years. The company is called Rev Pack (revpack.com). In all that time, I've never had a major failure of their products, and their prices have changed relatively little in that time. I've transferred it from bike to bike, as I would get rid of one and buy another. I've even used it in my international travels to India, Russia, Western Europe and Central America. I have quite a bit of it, so if anyone cares to look into it, I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have, as a result of my experience.
