I own Arkels (gt-54s) and would also recommend Ortlieb. Arkels make some of the finest touring luggage on the planet it has loads of organizational space, excellent mounting and cannot be ripped without a really sharp knife doing some serious work on them. The ones I own are relatively water resistant but not fully waterproof (because at the time that was less of my concern and I wanted more organizational space). I will have these panniers probably till I die unless I sell them which I probably won't and maybe aside from the looks being a little different (sun fading and such) I have little doubt they will hold up to many tours, commutes and general abuse.
