I have to say the Touratech Zegas have suffered a couple slow speed crashes without serious issue, but I have trapped my foot, momentarily, under them on the big GS when dabbing.

I was thinking about a pair of these next:

Adventure-Spec Magadan Panniers

I really, REALLY love those Vern Worldbeater panniers. Had I known about them years ago, I wouldn't have those Zegas.

Those Magadans look very nice...but 350 pounds...ouch.
