    I sure like my banjo bros products - economical and rugged.

    Not aware of Ortlieb but they sound great. I've used a pair of Jandd and have nothing but good things to say. Many of the commuters in my circle use Jandd.

    I built mine out of plastic wastebaskets, worked great. Tougher than heck. Making hardware to mount with quick release (springs & hooks), piece of cake. Put thousands of miles of miles on them. Lots of plastic containers now, some with lids, way more choices now than 40 years ago.

    If you like the bags, Arkel sell a cam lock hook kit to replace your hardware.

    personally, I commute daily with Ortleibs. 100% waterproof; great hardware; really big.
