Interesting threads here...

I went lightweight as possible..... I weighed my old but very durable cordura luggage and found that the roller weighed almost 16 pounds, or 32% of my allowed weight limit. I went to an Osprey Shuttle roller which weighs around 9 pounds so that I could fit more crap in a bag and not go over 50 pounds. For around $280, the 110L Shuttle seems good so far. Osprey has the lifetime warranty and great CS.


Agree on Pelican/Hardigg/Old Military/Thule Boxes for exterior...

I bought this monster roller from North Face. At 11 pounds 10 oz and 7325 cubic inches its a serious contender for the ultimate roller bag. It is tough and could probably be tossed on the roof rack in inclement weather if needed.

Does anyone on here own Zarges cases?

What size Zarges cases will comfortably fit in the back of a Defender?

(4) Pelican 1550s fit perfectly in the back floor of the 90 (with with bench seat removed), or in the back of the 110. I stocked up on 6 of the 1550s and double stack them in the front after putting the layer of 4 down on the ground. It's great for storing gear.

Also, more info than you want to know but I'd also recommend is getting different colors so you can quickly identify the contents - orange is recovery gear, yellow is non-perishable food, gray is camp gear/utensils, black is tools and parts, etc, etc. At least that's my system .

Great minds think alike. I have an Orange 1500 (Medical version) for first aid kit and a yellow 1500 for non-perishable foods. I also have a used 1660 that I haven't decided what to put in yet.

I like pelican cases a lot but they are heavy (especially the larger ones when loaded) and the smaller ones don't fit much stuff for the amount of space they take up and weight. I was interested in getting two Zarges cases for the rear. Much lighter and space efficient although not cheap. I was wondering if anyone has experience with them and what models you bought to fit your defender.
