fitted luggage for use with hood folded

Hello. I want to get good quality fitted luggage that I can use with the top down. Recommendations? I have found that other pieces with plastic piping the trim usually cracks and breaks.

They have some on ebay… not too sure of their quality. DDM Works still has some Kappasphere duffels (they fit at the back of the trunk) that were pretty durable pieces.

The 2-Piece Basic Set works very well with the top down.

I bought the Sky set from Roadtripluggage and am very pleased. Good quality and they fit very well in the available spaces.

As far as piping durability, leather would be the best material. But unless your willing to go the custom route you're going to have to settle for material or vinyl piping.

Bought the Kappasphere stuff the 2nd year of ownership of our Solstice. Use it 2-4 times per year. Has held up great.

I have a pair of Solstice bags. Work great. His and Hers. We also have the leather? Sky bag. It is a nice bag as well. Lots of alternatives.

I don't know anything about it, but those seatbacks don't look anything at all like the shape of the Solstice seats, I'd be very wary of ordering them.

Those are definitely not shown in a Solstice. The idea is interesting, but the thickness would keep you from sliding the seats all of the way back, and that wouldn't work for me. They also probably would not fit well into the recess in the rear bulkhead due to their width.
