Ahhh, very, very good question. The Pelican case gets warm but not hot, it does not conduct heat like aluminum. Your nylon rain suit in the left case will not melt.

There is another thing I like when touring with these cases that I forgot to mention. I can leave the case unlocked. I don't have to fiddle with my key just to open the case to get something out like I have to with the BMW system cases. When your pounding out 700 miles a day in the mountains, it is the little things that begin to count.
