I also take some hiking "footies" to wear with the Tevas, or those super-light-weight airplane socks.

You want an aluminum top box, but the huge alu boxes of most sellers for one or even two helmets are too big for you, and too expensive?
My husband has designed an aluminium topcase just for you! (and for us, because it's what we wanted on our own bikes)
20 liter (5.3 gallon)
400 x 250 x 200 mm

And, yes, those side panniers are also available to order.
