Great quality and price

The cases are amazing. I chose the 33 liter cases for the sides. I've already been on a few trips, fits everything I need, I do pack only the necessary, but took all of my stuff plus my gf's stuff on both of these.
Have been on heavy rain for more than an hour, happy to say the inside absolutely dry, not even a hint of moisture.
The cases mount very easily on the tubular accesories (must buy bike specific).
Only thing I don't like is that you must have the key inserted to close the case (you open with the key, but you can't remove it until you close it again) It's not a big of a deal, but that's the only con so far.

Looks good, works Great
Just completed a 15 day, 4600 mile trip through the Rockies on my VStrom. These panniers easily held all my gear and kept it dry. Easy to remove from the bike which worked really well for camping or packing into a hotel room.

Excellent hard bags
I use these with Givi side racks on my 2013 Tiger 800XC. Used on lots of local rides throughout Southern California, and have been on longer multi day rides to Laguna Seca, Yosemite, Napa, and planning to use on upcoming 5 day ride though Zion, Bryce, Moab, Canyonlands, 4-corners, Monument Valley, Grand Canyon, and Sedona.
Good seal, has kept items dry and dirt free. Great two way option for opening like a regular case, or top only "clamshell" style. Super easy to take on and off the bike, and easy access if camping and left on the bike, or staying at hotel and taking into room.

Great looks and reasonably sturdy
I've owned these cases for a month or so now and I'm pretty pleased with the overall fit and quality. I decided to take them over a similar setup with Pelican cases (35 litre) which I had on my previous bike (DL650 V-strom).
These are nicer looking cases and more versatile but they aren't quite as roomy and definitely not as tough. However, nothing is as tough as a Pelican case. Even in a tip over they barely scuff.
The Givi cases do provide an optional lock for keying another givi case (I have a Givi top case) which is nice. I now have one key for all 3 cases which is very handy. Re-keying the cases is very easy (5 minutes). Fit and finish on the cases is good, although I'm sure they will mark up if you tip over with them.

Very nice product. Well made.
I installed the rack system on my 2011 Versys no problem. Cases on and off very easy. I like the option to open from the top or side. Water tight. Looks great!. Definitely recommend this product.

Quality cases, no question
I got the 33L Trekker side cases for my 650 Suzuki WeeStrom. Love them! The bike was previously equipped with E21 Monokey cases so I didn't have to get the mounts for the Trekker set. They fit beautifully. These are heavy duty cases with a solid seal and firm closure. There is little worry they'll leak or pop open. I can't comment on the durability if banged or dropped as this thankfully hasn't happened yet. The dual opening option is real bonus. I typically keep one case as a clamshell opening to be able to get the liner bag out more easily and get my jacket in and out, and the other as top-opening for stuff that I just reach in for. I bought the internal liner bags to use as luggage. The 33L are perfect for daily communting and fit enough for several days away (clothing, gear, shoes, books, camera etc), even without the topbox (maybe I just pack light). Next puchase is the 46L Trekker for longer trips.
If you're looking for adventure luggage, this should be your first option. You'd be hard pressed to go wrong with these cases.
