Perfect rack setup for short commute?

A gigantic catch-all for Randonneuring (Audax), Bike-packing (Touring), and Commuting with or without E-bikes!

Tubus' subsidiary Racktime does a bracket(Snapit) to attach to your bag, so it will click very easily in out of the rack.

PS: Why do all people want watertight rolltops? They are irritating in daily use and unnecessary unless you dunk your panniers in a river regularly.
Ortliebs "Sport" series made of watertight material but with a normal lid and straps work perfectly well in the worst of storms.

Have commuted into London for 30 yrs and two recommendations are
1) the tubus vega rack and ortlieb small (front) pannier, waterproof, easy to clip on/off and practical
2) rucksac, ideally waterproof, currently use Rapha one
I travel light, short and underwear only, trousers and shoes stay in office locker so rucsac not too heavy
Means you can take a nice fast roadbike into work, rack and panniers go well with musguards for winter commute
