Fit and finish of this product are solid. When it's not on, it works as a real nice little luggage rack. the mounting hardware goes with the curves of the bike very well.
I've ridden in the rain a few times and everythign inside is perfectly dry
I've loaded it fairly heavy and never really even noticed it on the highway. A little less airflow back up to your back which kind of sucks on a hot day. But overall the practicality of it is awesome. But yep, it ain't pretty.
I have more pics of different angles and stuff and can get some daytime pics if anyone is interested....i doubt they are, but you never know.
