I love my Ortlieb bags, I have the whole set up of front, rear, and handle bar bags. I don't know much about POE equipment and the selection in my area was pretty much Ortlieb or the internet. That being said, I use mine for everyday things like going to the grocery store (they handle gallons of milk with no problem) to the dusty dirty rainy conditions of India's roads with out any of the outside weather getting in. They also double as a sink/bucket for washing dishes or clothes on the road. And I've heard of some people using them to fetch water from rivers by attaching a rope to the handle and throwing it off a bridge. So far mine have stood up to any challenge. Plus it's been my experience much to my dismay that almost all of the time...you get what you pay for.
