Plus 1 on the Trax Alu-Box. Receiving mine today. Can't wait! Yes, a bit pricey but from what I have read its well worth it. I have Wolman soft panniers but wanted the Topeka case with backrest for the wife.
I've got all the factory hard luggage. For me, the panniers have been fine and serve their purpose but I haven't crash tested them and hope to keep it that way.
As far as the top box. It also does its job just fine. I don't ever try and store a helmet in it so that isn't an issue for me. It houses my rain gear, extra helmet shield, jacket liners, sweatshirts, and sometimes my lunch all on a regular basis. When I camp and ride, its duties change to hold more camping supplies.
The things I never quite liked about it was the silly sliding carriage. I never saw the purpose for it and all it did was rattle and bang around over bumps. I have since eliminated that feature by stacking a few washers onto the sliding mechanism. Now it is much quieter, it still rattles slightly seeing there is some play in the latching mechanism.
I do like the fact that with just a twist of the ignition key and a lift of the handle I can pull it right off the bike. It makes for great luggage if you're traveling to a motel. I'd even pull my panniers off and bring them right in the room with me. In less than a minute all your luggage is off, same goes for re-installation
