I've been very happy with the small panniers I bought from Arkel -- http://www.bicyclebags.com -- which I use on the lowrider racks on one of my bikes or on the rear on the other with equally good results. I take them on and off and move them around a lot so I appreciate that they mount and dismount in seconds. I've had them about a year and a half and maybe 7000 miles, and they're good as new.

Carradice make some nice small panniers. My big ones have 5 years of daily riding including slides along the road. Vey tough and strong, but light and with modern click fittings

I've been happy with my Altura Jura panniers - I've only done 1500 odd miles with them but they're holding up well. They've carried pretty heavy loads, they've got R&K click-fixing and haven't let any water in yet (I'm not going to claim they're waterproof though ).
