Question Lockable Hard Saddlebags

I need help in locating the very best Lockable Hard Saddle Bags that will be the best in water leak prevention and have the best room/space for items. Also if possible cold storage for drinks foods etc.

any web site or a company that sells would help.

I have read about the Leatherlyke bags and have seen some negative things about them. Locks do not hold up and bolt area on bag will crack even at less than 4000 miles on some.

Thanks Louisiana Rider...

What sort of bike do you ride? What style bags do you want? There are several options for locking bags; I use Givi bags, but there are plenty of other manufacturers. One of the best web sites I know for checking out luggage is Twisted Throttle. Check out what it has to offer and go from there.

What kind of bike do you ride? You have to buy cases that are specific, or at least can be adapted for your bike. The very best Lockable Hard Saddle Bags for a BMW aren't the same for HD.

Or you could bungee an Igloo ice chest on your luggage rack. Perfect for cold beverages.

Givis are good. Krausers are good too but require a home equity loan.

And I am currently a fan of Hepco and Becker. I can provide an email addy direct to DE. At least it used to work.

I really like the Givi keyless bags. They actually have a keyed lock, but you can get into them through a combo lock as well to remove small items wihtout bothering with the key. They are very waterproof, and have lived up to well over 100K of dual sport (on/off road) use.
As others have said though, if Givi doesn't make a mounting kit for your bike, fuhgettaboutit.
