Hi, I am SO close to getting my Surly LHT. I am still looking at panniers. How is the quality of Lone Peak products? I am thinking of a Arkel handlebar bag and not sure on front/rear set-up. I plan on week long tours to start this Fall and next year. Would like to do a cross country trip in a few years. Do you think the Lone Peaks will hold up over the years or should I look at Ortliebs?(Arkel main bags seem a little heavy).
Thanks for any insight,
