I'm looking for new panniers. Was about the buy some more Ortliebs as I have good experience with these - they are solid and never leaked water! But, they are kinda heavy, which is probably why they are so solid. Anyone know of similar brand that are robust and waterproof like Ortlieb, but a little lighter. I can look at online shops etc.. for details, but nice to get some real world opinions. thanks George

I'd be real surprised if you can find anything of comparable quality that's lighter. Depending on the Ortlieb pannier you can cut weight if you really wanted to by removing pockets, straps etc, but its not an issue for me personally. Good luck finding something!

I know a couple of people who use Altura and Brooks panniers. Both give good feedback - nothing negative. The Brooks panniers do look nice. What they both weigh, I don't know, but I suspect slightly less than Ortlieb. Ortlieb are built to last and be water the weather proof, so never going to be that light.

For me, I have only ever used Ortlieb. They have never let me down in any way, so doubt I'll change brand when I do look to get some more in the future. If it ain't broke, don't fix it...

Good luck in your search. Let us know how you get on.

I am a huge fan of Carradice panniers, and wouldn't tour with anything else.I am using their lowrider Super C's on the front , back and their Super C handle bar bag.They are made of cotton duck, which is fully waterproof.I love how after a while they get a nice faded look, and complement my Brooks saddle and bar tape.I also carry a Carradice bag bag, which I fold up and carry on my rear vrack.It comes in handy for the many flights I have to take, and saves me having to scrounge a bike box every time I fly.

I have heard good things about Carradice kit. Good see to plenty of good quality products to choose from these days for touring.

Loving the bike set up - always a pleasure to see bicycles converted for touring, giving them a second life :-)

The background looks pretty good too!

Enjoy your touring in Asia.
