They are 1520's. I bit smaller than the 1550 that is popular with Caribou and other systems. I wanted to be a little less of a wide ass

I try not to carry so much stuff…always a struggle.

If you are in the Toronto area, I can tell you one of the best places to get them...

did you go 37 liter on each side? Color? I'm starting to get concerned that when I drop my bike an aluminum side case will dent, unlike a caribou / pelican. but I prefer top load after having side loads before...

I don't have any good pictures of the cases open, but I put 4 little eye hooks on the inside and have some 3/16" shock (bungee) cords that I use as a net to hold everything in. Works great. Nothing falls out and it's easy access to everything.

I also put aircraft wire on the kick stand side so the box doesn't open too much beyond level with the horizon.
