cheap extra cases for pannier lids??
we are setting off on our rtw trip in a couple of months and i have not yet solved the problem of needing 2 extra 10l or so cases/boxes for the top of the main panniers, one for the kitchen and the other for extra camping equip that wont fit elsewhere.
i know touratech does some zega cases for £50 each but am trying to save everything i can for the trip, and am fed up with having touratech etc plastered all over the bike. I am trying to think of some cheap diy alternative. so far i have thought of those soft cool boxes (for cans etc), but they dont have enough length for cutlery really, then tupperware boxes, but i think they may crack, and i cant get the dimensions right to fit between the top hooks on the panniers. does anyone know how to solve this one? anyone had the same problem?
it doesnt matter if they are waterproof really as could just get bigger dry bags to fit the box/case in, (with the sleeping bag which is the only other thing that needs to sit on top of the box). if they were waterproof though i could keep the dry bag size small to just hold the sleeping bag, and the kitchen would then be more accessible. god ive just realised what a boring post this is unless you know exactly the problem i'm talking about!
sorry. hope someone is as obsessive as me about packing stuff.
