The bags and mounts are tough. The bags don't leak.

I like the ability to move the bags back and forth. forward if I'm riding alone for better weigh distribution....back if I have a passenger and they need more leg room.
Excellent, thanks for the feedback. I'm with you on the adjustability and narrow width. Wondering about the weight compared to the others? Do they seem to be overly heavy? I read an old post (2002) where someone complained about the weight of these. Of course, I know they have designed new cases and this may not be an issue anymore...
Thanks again!
