Is the top of this bag rigid enough or could be made rigid enough to add another female rack to facilitate snaping on a rack time basket on top? I dig the way these look, but putting a basket on top would be the cherry on top!
I was thinking to buy their most inexpensive rack, cutting away all I could, then mounting atop bags and clipping basket on top.

The problem with doing that is that you would not be able to open the Racktime 2XL panniers. The top of the pannier is a large flap that opens to expose the contents of the back. You can see the zipper around the perimeter of the top of the bag in these pictures.

Yes, I figured that out(before I purchased). Found a set of Racktime bags, and bought them. They are not near as big as yours, but I had a extra basket and just permantly mounted to top. Yours look a hundred times better, though.
