Luggage bags...?

Anyone have an opinion on these? Seems too good to be true.

I had the tall and roll bag. The leather is good. The raincovers are nice but not handy if you have the thing strapped to a rack. However....

One of the zippers tore loose. Two of the straps used to hold the thing to my bike simply pulled off. None of the stitching is reinforced.

For the money, it's a good deal, but be prepared to do some sewing to fix things as they start to fall off. I threw the set away when I moved, but considering I paid like 40 bucks for the two piece set and used it twice before it started falling apart I'd say I broke even...

I offered $80 for the set but if it's turned down I'll keep shopping for something nicer. As always, thanks for the input.
