All of the products that I have ordered in the past from Aerostitch have been excellent quality. These luggage loops offer great utility and, unfortunately suffer from a few irritating flaws. Positives: The loops are light, strong, priced right, and the perfect size for the tops of my Vario panniers. I am very happy with those plusses. Negatives: The loops are black (great), so why would the hardware be silver? I had to order black, stainless hardware from another source --arrgh. While only lightly used, the black paint is coming off of one of the loops. Not a huge deal (I will touch it up with a felt tip marker). However, not what I would have expected. Overall, okay, but not up to Aerostitch's usual attention to detail. (Posted on 4/8/15)
This is a very nice product, excellent machining and overall appearance.
The SS washers (nice touch) I received are far too large, inside hole diameter is greater that the od of the nut. (Posted on 4/25/13)
I have a Kawasaki C-10 concours. The elastic straps inside the saddlebags broke. That causes all the loose item in the bags to fall down into the lids every time the bags are opened. The straps cannot be purchased alone and the bags are 400+ dollars each. I mounted the loops inside the bags and I can use small bungees, straps or a net to retain stuff... Works great!!!!
