Ok, after returning from a 6 day tour it's clear my 2" XR tryes are too big for my Surly LHT bike (straight bars, rack on back with 2 x20l panniers). Ideally looking for something as robust but thinner, do you think 1.5 would be a good choice?
Thank you guys Marathon hs 368 looks like a good choice.

I have/had XRs in 2.0 flavour and will be putting them on my Disc Trucker when the current Contis wear out.
Too big meaning for the smooth/semi-rough surfaces I mainly do, my current 2.0 are overkill. I love my LHT but it's a hefty bike that I want to 'slim-down' as much as possible as it's a beast in its current form
