I've taken these on a few tours now--one being a 5 week'er abroad. If you're considering another brand for panniers, just don't. Ortlieb makes the most indestructible panniers on the market.

These function great while on tour or just around town. I prefer the Backroller panniers to the Sport Packer model (the one with the flip-top lid) b/c of their utility while grocery shopping; unfolded these function as a very tall grocery bag that keeps its shape, so you can load it up and ride w/o worrying about spilling the goods.

Another plus, they're waterproof. No need to dig around trying to find or worry about losing the rain cover for you panniers. And if you're really out there on your tour, you can use these as a wash bucket for your clothes. The attachment system is super easy and secure. The new model attachment system is fully hand adjustable--no need for an allen wrench to adjust the rail hooks.

A mere suggestion, if you're strapped for cash, buy these used. They are so bomb-proof that it won't matter how the previous owner treated them, there will be years and years of life left in these bags.
Your friend's Ortlieb panniers.
