The Great Basin is the saddle bag with a cable pass through. I saw the cable in action yesterday and it is an excellent design feature.

The Pac-safe is an excellent product! I want to try one on the bike and see if it is an effective solution to the security question.
Slow access has been my concern, but slowing down access is always part of the security process. Anyone wishing to truly protect their bike mounted accessories will be happy to deal with some extra steps to get through their security devices and still have their stuff attached to the bike.
