I used the 89l bag for the last two years, and it's great. It fits a LOT of stuff, and is 100% waterproof. Ortlieb is definitely the best. I have, however, this year bought the 49l bag; I want to limit what I carry - it was getting a little silly the amount I was carting around! I, too, have panniers as well. The Ortlieb is basically for all my camping gear (tent, sleeping mat, sleeping bag, camping chair!) and the panniers for everything else. Whilst I don't subscribe to the thinking that I should only carry a cable tie and a toothbrush, I'm also trying to travel a little lighter.
Whichever you choose, Ortlieb bags are great.
