Waterproof rolling luggage

I searched the luggage thread and came up blank on this one.

I VERY often use the bike for road trips for work. I often have two suits, shirts, ties, dress shoes, etc. I have a Seal Line 80 LT like this that works well..




Orlando to ATL, MIA, Columbia SC, New Orleans, etc...

When I get to my hotel, it is often a pain to take the bags off the bike, grab a cart, check in, get to the room, get the cart back down to the front desk, all while geared up...

I am looking for rolling waterproof luggage.

I found this


The small Click here seems to be about the right size for the pillon seat.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Thanks

Re: Waterproof rolling luggage

Before you pull the trigger, check out the reviews at this website. Some question the durability of the bag. Would like to have something similar myself.

Re: Waterproof rolling luggage

yes, I have seen those reviews.

That is part of the reason I posted to see if anyone else had something I could not find on the internet.

I was also considering this pelican case.



For sure these have great reviews...

Pelican is hard to beat. I have built several test and trainer equipment cases out of Pelican units and they hold up extremely well

I too have used Pelican cases for many projects and needs..

Just how to "strap" to the back seat.

I am going out to a place in FL that has them in stock to see if I can figure a convenient way to strap to the back seat.

Re: Waterproof rolling luggage

Seahorse cases are waterproof and a good value for the money. I use one with my RT.

Re: Waterproof rolling luggage

might want to look at one of these Marsee Zip bags with waterproof cover if you're bringing suits and shirts:

I've got one that I used a bit a couple years ago, has been in my closet since as I rarely take those kinds of clothes on motorcycle trips any more.

Re: Waterproof rolling luggage

Guys,

I ended up going with this.



I can pack 2-3 suits, 3-4 shirts, dress shoes and 3-4 days of "tighty whities"

This case as you can imagine is waterproof and I use Andy Strapz to attache to the bike.



What I did was removed the pillion seat. Took piece of seat belt materiel long enough to create two loops on either side of the seat long enough to use as an anchor point. Replace Pillion seat.

Then I took the Pelican case and strapped to the newly installed straps.

This worked very well.
