Luggage

Can anyone give recommendations for either soft panniers, which I would prefer or a Givi topbox, including other makes that fit the monokey rack as I already have one fitted to the bike.

Never used soft panniers before and slightly worried about contact with exhaust etc. I don't intend to keep either on the bike permenantly and they are easier to store, hence preference.

Not looking to hold too much, just the extra Christmas presents for upcoming visits etc, so something under 40L (at a gestimate) would be good.

Thanks!

Sorry forgot to say it was for my KLE 500, hence posting it here. Although I can use the search function on the forum it doesn't throw up anything specific.

Looking at the Tech 7 touring kit for soft, but if anyone has something that they've got on really well with for the KLE then let me know!
