Givi Trekker Outback 37 Liter Side Case
Very nice setup.
As mentioned in others reviews the fit and finish of these panniers are top notch. The rack install took me about 35-40 minutes on my 2013 F800GS. The reason so long was that I had to first remove the BMW Vario rack that was already mounted to the bike. Otherwise I think it would have been a 20 min job. The fitment was spot on, all holes lined up perfectly. The mounting system Givi has designed for the Trekker Outback cases is AWESOME... virtually takes seconds to mount or remove a pannier. There are some really nice subtle features as well, like the one key locking design, and quick release lid. The only negative thing I could say would be that the rack mounting instructions are kind of vague... Basically b&w photos and a numbered parts list.

Great cases, with a few questionable choices
Bought these for my 2013 Triumph Tiger several months ago. They fit wonderfully with the Givi racks and look really great. The locking mechanism for both the lid and the cases to the bike are excellent and well thought out. The locking mechanism even has indicators on it that show you whether or not its attached properly and when you can remove it. So you're not struggling to get the cases off the bike when its still locked. The fit and finish is typical Givi and they look really nice on the bike. Also, very weather proof and makes a great camp table.
My only concern, and I haven't tested it yet so it may not be well founded ultimately is that the attachments for the boxes to the bike rack are made of molded plastic. They look profoundly breakable in a fall and I do worry about how they are going to hold up. Again, haven't done it yet so it may not be a big deal. But I've seen some other set-ups that look a bit sturdier. I think it depends on what kind of riding you're doing.
Lastly, I went with the large top case on my Tiger, I think an Outback 52L, just be mindful that the non-exhaust side pannier will hit the top case while opening. Not a big deal because the outbacks open two ways. I attached a pic to show it, not a big deal though, just an inconvenience.

GIVI TREKKER OUTBACK
EXACTLY as described/seen. The instructions for use are in every language but English. If you cannot follow pictures you are in trouble! LOL. Oh, beware the keys are taped to the OUTSIDE of the box they are shipped in.
The mounting brackets for these bought elsewhere, because out of stock, are also described in pictures as above!
Nice, nice cases. I made new tethers that are about 1" longer so the lids canter back and you do not have to hold them up. I also painted the insides so the raw aluminum does not rub on its contents.
So far so good. Now when the snow goes away I'll get to use them.

Excellent Cases, They look great on my bike!
Excellent Product! I am very happy with GIVI products in general, but these cases are beautiful! The instructions are a little vague but once they were installed it looked great. It takes about 5 seconds per side to install or remove the cases.

Best panniers for any dual sport
Great product!!! Relatively easy to install; it took me about 30 mins. Very sturdynamic and does not rattle when I go 80 mph or when I go off road. Revzilla is the cheapest place I could get them. 100% satisfied with my purchase.

Nice job Givi.
I recently purchased the Givi Trekker Outbacks for my 2013 Yamaha Surer Tenere. I decided on the 37L and 48L in Black.I ride with a passenger most of the time and they don't get in the way at all , we love all the room as we like to bring extra clothing with us on our travels.Great product boxes fit very tight to mounting brackets no rattles shakes or movement at all.

Good 1.5mm alumn bags
I recently purchased the 37L and 48L for my GS1200R (2014) and love them. I did the install at home. For the right side, you will have to remove your muffler to get to the mounting brackets. It took me about 2 hours to install wit the proper tools. Someone who knows what they are doing can probably do it in 30 minutes.
I took the bike and hard bags on a 1300 mile trip and they did great. hard to install, but easy to remove the bags from the mounts (5 seconds each). Easy access to inside while mounted on the bike and they look awesome.

I bought the rack and the two sizes of box available to mount to my Triumph Tiger 800 XC and found the install to be straight forward and fast. The system is solid, no rattles or moving around even at speed over rough terrain and down the highway in heavy winds. The quick release is fast and painless, although the latch and release on one side took a bit of break in to work as smoothly as the other.(One good ride and 3-4 mountings)
I am glad I made this purchase and would make it again.
