You have to enter your postcode so their system can "localise" the catalogue. I don't think they stock them in Qld.....only a bright yellow different brand one. Too bad...I would've grabbed a pair at $40.00 each.
I bought one last time they were on special at Maroochydore Bunnings. They are usually in the aisle with all the other specials. Don't think they were $40 though...would have to dig out the receipt.
Those yellow ones are nice too but a bit dearer for a smaller case.
Someone posted this link on ADV a while ago...You can get closer to the size you really want at a pretty good price.

Okay - I have totally failed to get pictures off my phone and onto this site. The cases are at Bunnings in Eltham and are available in two sizes - hence the differing prices.
515 x 435 x 225 are $39.98; the bigger ones are $65. Sorry, can't read the size off my phone.

There is an iddy biddy one as well for about $30.

I think the large ones are: "515 x 435 x 225" = $65

Brisbane info on stocks and where located

Southport : 4 instock

Any feedback on how these stand up to rough treatment ?

They just look a bit dodgey compared to the Pelican cases

Rougher than FLICKIT?

He has given his a fair workout and they seem to be going okay

I can't see Pelicans being too much better.

I have bought three of them, I already have Touratech panniers so will use one of these as a top case.
The other two won't go on the bike but will be used for camera cases.

My brother has one as a top case on his F800 and has no problems, although it has never touched the ground.
