Front Pannier Bags-Basil or Vaude-which is better for touring

Looking to replace my front pannier bags.
My gut feeling is that Vaude from Germany is going to be the better, stronger, choice.

But Basil is an established company in the Netherlands, and should know "waterproof" as well
as Vaude and Ortlieb.

Same price on sale. What would you go for?
Seems to be a better attach system on the Basil, one that you can actually lock. Also, removed,
it has a velcro flap to cover the hook system, and has a carrying strap.
Boxy design, vs. the bulbous, ball type of the Vaude
Vaude Discover Front
or Basil Forest

Basil Forest Low Roller?
