The In-depth Bikepacking Gear Reviews

Honesty Refined by Years of Testing"

In the realm of outdoor adventures, there exists an ancient Norwegian wisdom that resonates deeply with me: “Det finnes ikke dårlig vær, bare dårlig klær!” It translates to “There is no bad weather, only bad clothes!” However, I firmly believe that this philosophy extends beyond just clothing and encompasses the entirety of our gear.

 

As an avid bikepacker, I have spent years meticulously curating my gear list, and I am proud to say that each item has stood the test of time. I have encountered gear that has accompanied me for as long as seven years, yet still performs flawlessly and remains available for purchase online. This is a testament to its exceptional quality and durability. However, it is important to note that not all gear can boast such longevity, 60% of the gear never survived pass 6 months

 

If you find yourself contemplating an addition to your bikepacking gear list, I invite you to reach out to me. Whether I have personally owned the item or possess relevant knowledge about it, I can provide you with valuable advice. Alternatively, I can connect you with experienced bikepackers who have hands-on experience with the gear you’re considering. Together, we can ensure that your gear selection is of the highest quality, capable of withstanding the rigors of any adventure you embark upon.

Gear Insights Unveiled

Authentic Bikepacking Reviews

When it comes to “Top 25 Bikepacking Gear Reviews,” I strongly advise you to exercise caution. Unlike those clickbait articles, my own gear reviews offer comprehensive analyses of items that have truly proven their worth in my own gear list. I prioritize practical experience over superficial research conducted by bloggers who may not even own or have seen the products they review.


One telltale sign of such reviews is the use of stock photos, which ultimately serves the purpose of generating ad revenue. Their focus is on profit rather than providing genuine insights. Frankly, the idea of compiling a list of the best 25 bikes of 2023 bewilders me. It would require purchasing and testing a staggering 100 bikes, over a period of five years, to eventually narrow down the selection.


Instead, I encourage you to rely on my expertise. I have dedicated significant time and effort to thoroughly test and evaluate bikepacking gear. My recommendations stem from firsthand experience, ensuring that you receive reliable information and guidance.


By avoiding misleading reviews and turning to trusted sources like mine, you can make informed decisions about your bikepacking gear. Remember, it’s about finding the equipment that perfectly suits your needs and enhances your adventures, rather than succumbing to the allure of sensationalized rankings.

Pushing Gear To Limits

Years Of Trail And Errors

Instead, I offer you truthful bikepacking gear reviews that stem from years of testing. It is rare for me to come across gear that lives up to its promises and withstands the demands of bikepacking. Many pieces I have purchased in the past have been trial and error, resulting in significant expense. For example, before discovering the Shower Pass refuge rain gear, I had spent over $1100 on five other brands. Thus, my gear reviews only feature the very best equipment, saving you time and money in the process.


Now even after saying that After relying on the showerpass jacket to keep me dry during intense moon-soon storms for six years, I decided to order the exact same model. However, to my dismay, I discovered that the company had switched to eco waterproofing, compromising the jacket’s perfect storm-proof capabilities. On the very first day of encountering a light shower, I found myself completely soaked. It was a lesson learned about the ever-evolving nature of technology and Woke mindset ..
