I've been using a set for just over a year now as a commuter so light use. Most I've carried has been maybe 15 lbs each side during a grocery run after work. The bottoms are starting to wear through so I'm looking for a new set to replace them. And they are definitely not water proof. I was caught in a severe thunderstorm last year and there were puddles in the bottom of the bags. I would say they are adequate for short trips around town but wouldn't want to depend on them on tour. Save your money for something better.
I should mention I have the three piece set.
