Go to a good backpacking store like REI of A16 ect. and get the kind of equipment that you would carry in a backpack on the trail.
I have been using my backpacking equipment on the bike, and all of my gear for two people for a week fits into one side box, with the two sleeping bags and self inflating pads in the rack bag, ad waterproofs in the other side box. This leaves the top box completely empty for whatever we need it for including all our riding gear and helmets when stopped.
All of my gear for two weighs in at around 25# and the tent has been into minus 35 with 70-80mph winds.
'RIDE TO BE SEEN'
Most common quote from a cager after killing a motorcyclist is?
"I never saw him".
