    Altura Arran 36 rear pannier - anything wrong with it?

    I'm looking at getting this as my first pannier for commuting 11 miles each way, on road (some roads get bumpy but no big deal). Is that a good pannier... is there something I need to look out for with panniers? I need water proof. In various reviews, it's been said it's good for smooth roads as the hooks are not strong enough, anyone else experienced that ?

    I ride 12 miles and a lot of that is over heavily rutted farm track with two sets of steps thrown in for good measure. I use the black Altura Night Vision and they have never come off my cheap rack thanks to the Rixen Kaul fittings. They are also are incredibly dry - even today when it is officially "lashing".
