Looks like your the one to find out how durable they’ll be off road with your potentially expected damage, maybe take a drill and rivets to repair on the go for when you drop it .
Personally I find if things I need don’t fit in a waterproof roll bag strapped down behind me on the seat , then I don’t need it and I can then roam anywhere without worry of being to wide in congested traffic or worrying about damage to my non panniers if it’s dropped , but also I don’t carry a passenger either but keep us all posted on how they work out for you.

Looks beautiful. So tempted to get the same but going to stick with soft Mosko for now...
I'm probably going to get some soft bags that mount to my aluminum pannier bracket setup. I just can't deal with those style of bags in the city. I literally ride my bike to work, gym, and home. Just a major hassle with soft bags.

Yep agreed. Definitely lean towards hard panniers for touring and city. Accessibility so much easier. And more secure. But when I hit the gnar, I ride paranoid unless they're soft.
Have a '20 Tiger 900 Rally Pro and started with the hard panniers and top case. Loved the space and accessibility ease, then I hit gnar and was so worried about crunching them. Got the Mosko and accessibility takes some getting used to, but now no worries on nasty stuff -- in fact they've become storage AND protection!
