I used my Performance panniers for about 12 years before I bought Arkels - depending on your needs and budget - the Performance panniers were fine for 40,000 miles - so I'd go with either. The Arkels are higher quality, but cost a lot more.

Some silver ones, a black one, a red one, an orange one and a couple of titanium ones

Ortlieb top rollers are dry bag waterproof but, if you don't roll the tops down they would have the option of breathability. Not cheap ($120 front/$140 rear) but they will last for many, many years. If fact, you might not need to ever by a second set
