Hard sided panniers

I've found these from Cobbworks http://www.cobbworks.com/index.htm and these from Bikebins http://www.bikebins.com/bikebins_usa.html.

I'm intrigued by something like these. Any other options out there?

BTW, I'm aware of the citybox panniers from Nashbar, but they appear to be of a less than ideal construction quality.

You could make a set of panniers out of Coroplast (corrugated plastic), like these. I made mine out of a coroplast electioneering sign, that was recycled the day after election day.
These aren't as heavy as the oyster buckets, and they cant hold water, as there was cutting, folding, and holes to allow fasteners.

The Commuting forum folks discuss this type of pannier all the time. Why not ask their opinions?

Because this forum tends to get some cross traffic from other forums. Commuting, touring, utility...

I recently picked up what i would call a semi-hard sided case. It's set up for carrying a laptop, notebook, office supplies, that sort of thing. I't's waterproof fabric, but has internal hard side panels. Made by Ortlieb. So far it's worked pretty slick, and kept everything bone dry through a couple wet commutes.
