SW-Motech 48L Legend LR2 Bag -- anyone have one?

https://sw-motech.com/en/products/lu...2572034330.htm

Thinking of using this for solo trips. I am curious how much you can pack into it? I typically camp 1 to 3 days.

Currently using the SW Motech Legend LS2 bags which are alright, but the black faded awfully as I kept the bags on the bike a lot (sun, rain). And then I still need my Osprey backpack to carry the camping gear as the bags usually have clothing and food.

I've never owned any SW Motech so hard to compare, but I've had two Kreigas and their quality is excellent. Many brands to choose from and all will do the job, but it's lousy when the lovely black quickly turns to purple.

I like Kreigas options but want bigger

So, will you use this bag as a replacement for saddle bags, or will you use both? They look interesting and maybe better than saddle bags.

Likely a replacement for camping. Can fit tent/sleeping bag on luggage rack.
