I wouldn't be at all surprised if a larger version of the Overlander 15 pannier bag (or an entirely new product along those lines) breaks cover at some point, but I don't have confirmation or info about it at this stage.

Sorry I can't be the bearer of better news.
I do see that it would be a whole new product, as it would have to be a top load, and not a side load - but it would be nice if something like that would come.... more flexibility

Cheers,
Casper
