Does anyone know where I can purchase the Ortlieb Greenpeace panniers (http://www.ortleib.com/_browse.php?lang=en&tfile=greenpeace&produkt=Greenpeace-Line)?
The Ortlieb website says they're only available in Germany, Poland, Hungary, and a few other countries, but I figure with the internet someone has to know a retailer over there that will ship them to the U.S. or perhaps a well-connected US or Canadian retailer that could order them for me. Any suggestions appreciated.
I believe that they can be ordered through:
Wayne at the Touring Store (thetouringstore.com) is a very helpful man. He deals with Ortlieb and could most likely track down a set.

Very funny, Jit4.
AllenG, I was planning to contact Wayne when he's back in the office (website says he's at a trade show), but I was hoping there might be an ready-made solution. Anybody?

SJS cycles in the UK is a Ortlieb dealer and ships to the US. The shipping will be expensive. BTW that is the same green I have on my large Vaude panniers. it is much brighter than the picture shows. Pretty ugly but no one has stolen my panniers. http://www.sjscycles.co.uk
Act fast. They sold through the OPEC paniers pretty smartly.
This place will ship to the US. http://www.bike-components.de/catalog/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=greenpeace&x=0&y=0
I'm in Europe and have ordered from them many times.
