I have a set of the 33's and a 46 on my F800GS, Got the black which really look sharp. These cases are well constructed and having a great looking finish. Have not re-keyed mine yet but do plan to get them all on the same key for convenience. I have these with the quick mount for the side cases. You can't beat being able to drop the bags and racks for a nice clean look in just a few minutes. For the tail I have the Altrider Luggage rack which with the Givi adapter works great.

I'd just recently purchased a pair of used 33ltr Givi Trekker cases to use as panniers so I bought this 46ltr to complete the set. I've been on a couple short overnight camping trips with it and I couldn't be happier. These very well thought out cases. The carry handle is comfortable, the latches work smooth and they're watertight and dustproof. To top it off, they look fantastic on the bike. My only complaint would be price. They're bit high for what they are. However, in the long run I should save money because these will probably snap right onto whatever bike I buy next and who wants to buy new panniers every time they switch bikes?

I installed these on my F 800 GT. The stock BMW panniers were not shaped for carrying my camping gear. These fit the bill well. The option to open only the top is great. They are very well made and mount rock solid to the PLR 5109 rack. The rack itself was a PIA to install but now it seems adjusted so that everything fits fine. They are quite expensive being the only drawback.

Better then BMW
I have looked into many brands of luggage before hand, including BMW motorrad brand. I also owed bmw luggage from my previous two bikes to know what I want from this set of luggage. That said, the product arrived filled all my expectations and more! Because I always thought bmw have always dominate the functionality aspects, but Givi came out just a bit higher at the end! Kudos to them!
However, I do wish they would offer re-key luggage to bike's key. That would be icing in the cake!!!

I love this box
Clean look, lots of storage space, don't even notice it is on the bike when driving. I am a commuter in Seattle and needed something that could keep my gear dry during our long and wet winters... This box is definitely made for it.

Easy to install and reasonable price. Glad I bought the 46L and not the larger 52L it would have been too large for my needs. No problems with the key locking assembly as noted by others but it does take a little force to engage the rear connector.

Exactly as advertised
I use my KLR to commute and I wanted a simple 'trunk' to put my work gear in and to stuff my helmet and jacket in when needed.
The top / or side configuration option was key for me. I am perfectly happy with this case, though I may convert it to a side case and opt for a 52 ltr topcase. Thankfully the Trekker makes this easy.
One quirk is the closure mechanism can be finicky. I've had it jam a few times since it has to catch first on one side before actually latching on the key side. If you miss that first catch, you have to force it to get the latch to release. Its a user error, but they kinda set us up for it.
Minor complaint though. I definitely recommend the case and will be buying at least one more Monokey in the future.
