The Gear to Carry on Your Bikepacking Adventure
Here's what to consider (and what to buy) before safely heading out on a multiday cycling trip into the hinterlands.
For maximal comfort I especially like a couple of women's pieces: Tonik Cycling’s Beth Short Sleeve Cycling Jersey ($95 at Tonik) and Rapha & Outdoor Voices High-Waisted Padded Short ($110 at Rapha, $110 at Outdoor Voices). Quality companies are moving toward designing kits geared toward a wider array of body sizes. Tonik took the elastic off the bottom of its roomy Beth jersey to let it breathe and added three ample pouches and a zippered pocket in the rear. Rapha partnered with Outdoor Voices to create a women’s line of cycling gear that maximizes style and high performance.
The Best Cycling Clothes And Accessories For You
One such company I recently tried is Tonik Cycling, which makes tank tops that do double duty for cycling and yoga, jerseys, sport dresses, cycling jackets, and active skirts - but surprisingly, no shorts. Tonik’s motto is “Performance Apparel For Real Women - We Fit The Body You’ve Got.”

The tagline on each piece of Tonik Cycling women’s clothing says “Performance Wear for Real Women.” And it’s true. Their full line of smart, flattering gear is available in women’s sizes XS (2-4) to XXL (16-18).
