Panniers are the way to go, no sweaty backpack-ness.
Before I had my touring bike I had an old road bike that I'd converted to singlespeed. It was a pretty fast bike, and I could make my commute at an average of 17.5mph. With my touring bike my average dropped to 15mph. Not that big of a deal really.
