New at Eurobike are a cool range of panniers by Brooks, but basically refined Ortlieb Rollers

From Tom's Bike Trip

Sold under the Brooks brand but advertised as being made in Germany, the existing Land’s End (rear) and John O’Groats (front) waterproof panniers have actually been around a while already — currently on their way round the planet on the back of Tim Moss’s bike, in fact. They’re significantly cooler and arguably tougher versions of Ortlieb’s Roller Plus panniers, which (together with the Classic variant) have become the ubiquitous round-the-world pannier, as well as being sold by the bucketload to everyone else as well.

If I remember correctly they're bloody expensive too!

Yes, probably. They look a bit too hipster as well, probably not good for the dirt and grit of the wild bush tracks.
