Minimal Rear Rack for a 29er?

It's winter touring time!

Trying out some deep-winter bikepacking again this year. I've got the wide tires and sone good snowboots. My girlfriend got a rear rack for a pair of Ortliebs, since frame space is low on a small.

I know I can fit everything I need on my Large without racks (did it last year), but with cold hands, I am thinking about using a pair of Ortlieb front-rollers on a rear rack for ease of packing/unpacking with gloves on.

So, I'm looking for the following:

-Rear rack
-Disc Brake Compatible
-Lightweight, Minimal (will carry 20lb load max)
-Wide enough for a 2.4" tire*****

I think my current front-runner is the Old Man Mountain rear rack, but I would love a less expensive option to explore, too.
