I have Viking bags and they're quite good. BUT, the hardware that Viking sells for installing them is..... well, let's just say they're crap. So, you might want to look into getting different support brackets from online and bolts from your local ACE or Home Depot, etc.
Originally I had used the Viking hardware that came with them and didn't experience any noticeable issues, but after reading some threads about other people's complaints with the hardware, decided to upgrade my setup. When removing the bags, one of my bolts had a definite bend to it. So I replaced the brackets and bolts and added some other stuff to increase strength of the arrangement.
My actual bags appear to be quite hardy materials and I have zero complaints about them. I do recommend them.
