Yes, but I also went with Wolfman Expedition panniers rather than hard cases (with the exception of my top box but I dont use it while off road) so if you add all of the weight savings up together it can make quite a difference. Especially tackling sandy off road conditions. If you can save weight in some areas it also allows you to splurge in others. Like tools and camping gear.
