I like the idea of a flat strap if I were going with that luggage option... I'd prefer it bend a bit in an offroad fall, and could be bent back into shape. Better than a break, especially if you're remote.

Looking at the potential mounting points, I might have moved the rear two to the two countersunk rack holes that make up the front edge of the triangle of three holes... but that design looks fine too.
