Merlin now has a perfect bikepacking wheelset on the super cheap

Not light but these will be absolutely bombproof with Shimano hubs and 32 spokes. Should be awesome for load carrying.

With that Shimano hub they are a small step above a factory wheelset on a lower-end bike. Pretty cheap though! Maybe look at the Shimano GRX wheelset as well at $418 for a set that is more than a pound lighter than the Merlins to provide an even bigger upgrade at a still reasonable price.
