2022 April Fools’ Day has a been a strong one in the world of cycling, here’s the best I’ve found.
Revelate Designs Hawt Pocket
In 2012, Revelate Designs became my first sponsor. Over the past decade, they’ve been innovating bikepacking bag design to keep me out longer— from oversized zippers & stretchy materials on framebags to waterproof seatpacks & handlebar rolls to magnetic closures on their mag-tanks and a custom oversized Jerry Can, the bags just keep getting better. They are the lightest, most functional and durable on the market.
Eating is a huge part of endurance. The less time I spend off the bike, the farther I can ride. Taking meals on the go has always been essential in my race strategy. The Revelate Designs Hawt Pocket is the perfect vessel for packing real food. Insulated, modular and grease resistant, this bag is my picnic basket 🧺 With such a hectic schedule this spring, I multitask my days and take dinner on the ride.
A huge thank you to Eric & Holly for being open-minded, creative and helpful. Check out the Revelate Designs website (linked in my profile) for more information on the bag and the research & development that went into it.
