Deciding on what gear to go with was the easy decision. After our big 2016 Asia adventure and several smaller adventures with racks and panniers we have decided to go with the bike packing set up. There is always heaps of debate as to what is the best set and they both have their pros and cons.
There is no doubt that you can fit more gear in the panniers, but this can also be a bad thing as at the end of the day you have to carry it all. We have opted for the bike packing set up as it is far more light weight and stream lined, so hopefully we won’t come too close to knocking into road signs or knocking over scooters as with the panniers.
We have chosen the Alaskan Revelate designs gear.
