I travel with an Eagle Mike Quick Jack. It's compact and works well. A less expensive (yet very effective) alternative can be made quite easily from the bottom section of an aluminum crutch.

I bought a pair of the Happy Trails top bags and found they were quite useful when I was running Teton aluminum cases. The stuff that needed rain protection went into ziploc baggies.

I put the Happy Trails SL racks and Mojave bags on my 2012 KLR. I prefer them much better than the HT Teton aluminum cans I had on a Versys. FWIW, 11,000 and no leaks.
