We have ridden a Santana Fusion (Enduro version of the Arriva) for 10 years. Very durable and comfortable. Not quite as fast as the skinny tire tandems, but we can go where others fear to tread :)

If you are planning on doing a lot of loaded touring and some dirt or gravel roads, consider a 26x1.25 or 26x1.5. You get a nice comfortable ride and some pretty durable tires in this width.
