They will only be used for about 3 weeks during our trip.  The supports are flexable enough to move with the bike.

If Zack looses any more weight he's going to disappear.

Correct. Usually similar enough to some aftermarket hard-bag mounts, but smaller, lighter as they don't actually carry the weight of the bag; they simply keep the bag from swinging around.

Some examples:  


I'm glad stuff like that exists, but this is why I went to hard luggage and never looked back.  My soft-sided luggage didn't go into the rear wheel, but they would sag like crazy as the day went on.  Nothing they came with added enough rigidity to keep them in place...a serious design oversight.

Zaphod did not want to tangle with them and, deciding that just as discretion was the better part of valor, so was cowardice the better part of discretion, he valiantly hid himself in a closet.
