City Box Pannier...anyone try them? review?

I saw these on Nashbar a few weeks ago but apparently all you guys bought them Anyone have a review on them? I'm hoping to use them to carry camera equipment around. I'd like to know how thick the plastic is and how it would compare to a pelican case. Also how is the mounting system? Secure or jiggly?

Thanks!

But the extra room cagers give you might make up for the weight.

Ive never used them, but they look tough. I might consider them. $100 for the pair is comparable to a good set of cloth panniers
