The list of travel kits: the essentials of bikepacking for 2022

seven. Alpkit Kraku ultra-compact titanium micro camping stove

Weighing just 45g, this ultra-compact camping stove is small but powerful – it can deliver the power of a gas stove twice its size and its compact design is perfect when space and weight are limited. Additionally, 1% of all sales go to Certified B Corp’s independent brand charity, the Alpkit Foundation, which was established to improve diversity and inclusion in the great outdoors. £ 28.49.

8. Albion Zoa Insulated Jacket

No winter adventure is complete without a warm jacket and Albion has warmth, visibility and wind resistance covered with this super-light insulated jacket. Made from a 100% recycled Pertex Quantum outer fabric, the jacket is designed for use on and off the bike. There’s even a nifty hidden, zippered back pocket that doubles as a travel pillow when the jacket is stuffed into it. £ 185.

9. Vango Cobra 200 sleeping bag

Sleep is essential for good recovery, so does it make sense to pack a good sleeping bag? The Vango Cobra 200 is super comfortable, ridiculously light (it weighs just 700g), and fits into a small, four-strap compression bag. It’s filled with ethically sourced goose down and has an aluminized layer to reflect heat, making it suitable for use in temperatures as low as -4 ° C. £ 134.99.

ten. Lezyne Zecto Drive 250/80 bicycle light set

In winter, shorter days mean more time spent biking in the dark, so good bike lighting is essential, especially if you’re in nature. This set from the unmissable brand Lezyne offers great visibility thanks to a front light that offers up to 250 lumens and a rear light that provides up to 80 lumens. Fully waterproof and easy to attach to the bike, they are also lightweight and rechargeable via USB. £ 58.99.
