lockable rack trunk

I saw one of these on a bike in boulder, met the owner of the company that makes them.

$80 bucks, made of ABS plastic (like roof top racks) and locks with similar mech. Bolts to the rack (and can lock via seat saver cable to the bike...)

very nice streamlined design, i don't know the actual capacity in cubic (probably on the website)

anyway, here's the website...

The link goes to a place-holder page from the ISP. Is the trunk something like this one...? I know nothing about this product, just the first one I saw via a google search...been looking for something like this for a while.

I have been looking all over for something like this! The closest I had found was a top box for a scooter. These are certainly much nicer! Has anyone else come across any others? The Otivia one looks to be both spacious and secure, but it is just over $100 with shipping. Any other options?
