Just outta curiosity I looked at a set of them at a army surplus store, man are they heavy, dont know what a set of "store bought" aluminum side cases would weigh but surely they aint as heavy as the ammo boxes.
Not sure how much they weigh, but surplus Mermite cans have been converted into panniers...
