For lights it is hard to beat the Magicshine sold by http://www.geomangear.com/index.php?...roducts_id=138
It is rated for 900 rumens, not sure about actual output. But, it does an outstanding job of lighting up the road, and is not terribly expensive. A good value.
On the rear, the Planet Bike SuperFlash is not expensive. It does seem to work.
I don't have any frame of reference for rear panniers. I use vintage Cannondale panniers on the front of my Xtracycle.
I started riding year round in June '08. Studded snow tires are worth the money and hassle if you get snow and ice.
