Re: Your Recommendation, please: Saddlebag Liners
Send them back. Do it right now. You've already determined the quality, why use them to test for durability? You're bound to be disappointed.
Buy some cheap Chinese shit that has big zippers and thick material. They'll fall apart in a couple of weeks, but you'll have what you value.
Somebody like me will buy the RKA bags and use them day after day for ~25K miles, dragging them in and out of campgrounds and hotels and they will perform flawlessly.
Dropped, shoved across pavement with a boot, hung by the straps with too much in them, dumped in the dirt for want of a beer, and they just do what they're supposed to do.
Yeah, they're simple bags with no frills, but they're built well and the guys up in NorCal will stand behind them. I expect, though, that mine will easily last almost forever, so I'm not worried.
If you value that sort of thing.
