I HAD Jesse's until I hit some mud and the front washed out. When the bike went down my left side sheared off and was totally mutilated. Fortunately I had a friend following me with a Ural and I just threw both sides in his side car. Insurance paid me for the Jesse's and I replaced them with Zega Pro's. I like the Zega Pro much better than the Jesse's, but prior to purchasing I put a lot of consideration into switching to soft luggage and still decided against it cause hard luggage is so much more convenient for me.
I'm sure that the Zega's would get trashed in the same scenario, but after owning the Jesse's, which are great bags, I just went with a different brand and really like these much more.
