An introduction to bikepacking – three ways to try it and what to pack

There are three types of bikepackers: those who go light and fast, those who go fully loaded and those who fill the mid space in between the two ends of the spectrum. With help from our friends at Decathlon we aim to help you find out exactly what kind of bikepacker you are and give you some hints and tips on packing for the journey.

What is bikepacking?

In its simplest terms it is going on a ride carrying everything you need to survive overnight and be totally self-sufficient. You’ll need a bike that’s up for the job, food, cooking equipment and gear to keep you warm and dry at night, plus snacks, tools and possibly lights too.

Decathlon - Intro to Bikepacking Bike Detail-26

So what is the ideal bike for a bikepacking adventure? Thanks to our friends at Decathlon we have a Riverside Touring 920 here. With classic looks, interesting additional features, the kind of geometry you'd need for multi-day adventures plus good tyre clearance, this looks like the ideal candidate for a go-everywhere gravel bike. 

Decathlon - Intro to Bikepacking Bike Detail-15

The frame itself has a classic 71.5-degree head angle and a 73-degree seat angle, with four sizes in the range meaning that it’ll fit lots of riders. All bikes get 29er wheels to help smooth out the bumps in the trail, plus 2.25in Schwalbe Thunderburt tyres offering better traction than skinnier rubber. The bike is kitted out with a 1x11 SRAM Rival groupset.  

Decathlon - Intro to Bikepacking Bike Detail-5

Elsewhere on the Riverside is a wide flared bar which is size specific, and a Shimano Deore XT dynamo hub with a USB charging port built into the stem to charge lights, GPS devices or phones as you ride, perfect for overnighters.

In terms of kit, this bike has all the rack mounts you could want, there are mounts on the frame for bags and bottles, mounts on the fork for cages and dry bags and you can use panniers too – not that we’d probably recommend them for off-road riding!

Decathlon - Intro to Bikepacking Bike Detail-19

What should I take with me? 

Packing smart is the key with bikepacking, whether you intend to go light and fast or slower and well laden. The main load carriers will usually consist of a handlebar bag, a seat pack and a frame pack. You don’t want the steering to feel too heavy, so I’ll try to keep lighter items like sleeping gear at the front. The seatpack tends to contain clothes and food. Stuff you’ll need quickly like snacks and tools will go in a frame pack.

Decathlon - Intro to Bikepacking Bags-12

Bikepacking – light and fast

Light and fast riders will be concerned with keeping moving fast along their route, so when preparing will look for lightweight bags and may even forgo one of the bike bags. For the light and fast style you’ll pack essentials like tools but these will be light and well thought out, so no duplicates! You’ll also pack some food but no stove, or at least a very light one, so you might be restricted to eating cold stuff or finding a pub or café to stop at along the way for dinner.

You’ll also go on one change of clothes only, but we’d recommend packing a down jacket for sleeping in or if the weather takes a turn for the worse – that’s when a jacket becomes an item of safety gear not just clothing.

Decathlon - Intro to Bikepacking coats-2
Decathlon - Intro to Bikepacking Bags-5

Light and fast sleeping options are usually a really lightweight sleeping bag and a bivvy. Some riders will carry a thin inflatable mattress too for comfort and some might forgo the bivvy and opt for a minimalist tent or tarp rigged up with a pole or your bike wheels.

Decathlon - Intro to Bikepacking Sleeping mat bag bivvy-3

Mid-weight bikepacking

If light and fast doesn’t sound like a whole bundle of laughs to you, you’ll probably find you fall into the middle ground of bikepackers who are happy to carry a little more and make life on the road more comfortable.

Generally, you will pack all three bags – a handlebar bag, a frame bag and a seat pack. It’s worth thinking about swapping a bar bag for two fork cages and bags, but make sure they are evenly packed!

Decathlon - Intro to Bikepacking Sleeping mat bag bivvy-2

In the bar bag, it's best to put all your sleeping gear, so a sleeping bag, inflatable mat and a bivvy or tarp if it will fit. All rolled up together, that’s pretty much as heavy as you'll want to make the front bag.

It's tough to get into a bar bag when you are on the move so don’t be tempted to stuff extra layers in there too unless you can be sure you don’t want them in a hurry. 

Decathlon - Intro to Bikepacking Cooking-2
Decathlon - Intro to Bikepacking Cooking-3

In the frame bag pack your tools, snacks, wallet and perhaps your phone too if you're not carrying it in a top tube bag. If the bike you're using won’t take a frame bag then you could think about carrying a lightweight backpack to carry the easy-access stuff and extra water if the weather's hot.

Decathlon - Intro to Bikepacking Bags-4
Decathlon - Intro to Bikepacking Bags-1

In the seat pack go my tarp or tent, tent pegs, a length of parachute cord, a stove, the coffee and my food. For cooking purposes a gas stove is probably better to start off with, allowing you a little more flexibility with your cooking. Simple aluminium pot(s) will finish off this kit, plus you can pop all your clothes in here too, helping to pad things out and stop the cooking gear rattling around.

In fairly good weather, spare clothes could consist of: an extra pair of Lycra shorts, a fresh pair of socks, a waterproof, a down jacket and a pair of thermal leggings to sleep in at night – it’ll be worth it to get out of that Lycra! 

Fully loaded bikepacking

Moving on from here, depending on the length of your trip, the weight of your tent and the amount of extra gear you want or need to take, you could fall into the category of heavyweight bikepacker. You'll probably be planning multi-day expeditions where you really will need to fend for yourself.

To take a one-person tent such as the one shown here, plus sleeping bag, sleeping mat and all of the kit, spares and food already mentioned, you’ll need to pack a handlebar bag with your sleeping bag in and then strap the tent to this. Or perhaps use fork leg cages and dry bags to store extra gear. Then out at the back your seat pack will be filled with food, that stove and cooking gear and spare layers.

You might want to think about a larger frame bag that fills the full triangle of your bike so you can store more without any wasted space. If you do choose to do that, though, you’ll need to make some other arrangements – perhaps a small and light pack – just for water.

Decathlon - Intro to Bikepacking Bags-9

What else do you need to take?

Other essential items you'll need to squirrel away include lights for emergency purposes. This bike has lights fitted – they won’t help me see, but they will let me be seen in an emergency. I’d recommend a small front light too – about 700 lumens will see you through ok; you are likely to need one at some point overnight if camping out and you can rely on it to navigate in an emergency. You’ll also need a reliable GPS or a map or both – don’t get lost, it’d ruin the fun!

2021 Garmin Edge 530 GPS Computer-1

You’ll need the right pedals and shoes too. Use shoes that you know you are comfy in and pedals that you are used to. If you have room you might want to pack a small pair of lightweight shoes or flip flops; you could easily strap flip flops to the outside of your bag so you can get out of your riding shoes at night when you are at camp.

If you don’t have room for a full first aid kit, it’s still a good idea to carry a few emergency essentials such as a triangle bandage, some bandages to stem bleeding, cleansing wipes and antiseptic cream.

Alpkit Hunka

Alpkit Hunka

If lots of awesomeness at a very, very reasonable price is your thing, it’s well worth taking a better look at the Alpkit Hunka. This no-frills, super functional and wallet-friendly little sack does everything you need a bivy bag to do. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s also the cheapest and the second lightest bivy in our review! It’s waterproof, breathable, and features a nicely tapered shape, a sculpted hood with dual drawcords and fully taped seams.

The only downsides to this sack are the lack of a side zipper for easy entry/exit and a slight lack of width and length. The first problem can be overcome with a little bit of wriggling, the second by upgrading to the Hunka XL, which weighs only 17oz and will set you back just £15/$20 more.

For more info read our full review of the Hunka.

Pros

  • Weighs a tiny 11.65oz
  • Very small pack size 5 x 6”
  • 2.5-layer Ripstop nylon fabric
  • Breathable
  • Waterproof (HH 10,000)
  • Hunka XL available for taller biviers
  • Awesome value for money
  • Wide at the shoulders (31.5”)

Cons

  • A touch narrow at the feet (20”)
  • A bit on the short side (85”)

OR Helium Bivy

Outdoor Research Helium Bivy

It’s tough, it’s durable, it’s completely waterproof, and the newly improved version is also even more lightweight than ever (14% lighter, in fact!). For a poled bivy sack, 16.8oz is impressively lightweight, competing fiercely with some of the non-poled options on our list. It even features no-see-um mesh, a guy line loop and stake hoops.

A couple of minor negatives include average breathability which could be better. Plus, it’s a little bit on the short side for very tall users (82”) and a little narrow at the shoulders (26”) for broader backed biviers.

Overall, however, the OR Helium is a beaut of a sack for those who want simple and lightweight functionality on multi-day missions.

Pros

  • Very lightweight
  • Fully taped seams
  • Great weather resistance
  • Durable
  • Features a mosquito net

Cons

  • Pricey
  • Breathability could be better
  • A touch short and narrow

Rab Alpine Bivi

Rab Alpine Bivi

When the weather’s doing its best to spoil your good time in the outdoors, the Rab Alpine Bivy comes into its own. This minimalist, 3-layer, fantastically weather-proof sack takes protection from the elements to a whole other level. Made for extreme alpine and mountaineering adventures, the Rab Alpine is very light, very tough and offers great breathability to boot. It features tough, Ripstop materials, eVent fabric, a reinforced underside for rocky surfaces, and a mummy-style design to fit technical sleeping bags. The only real downside to this bivy sack, in fact, is the cost. If you’ve got money to burn or it just happens to be payday, however, this just might be the bivy for you!

Pros

  • Outstanding weather protection
  • Great breathability
  • Light (16oz)
  • Comfortable
  • Reasonably spacious

Cons

  • Very expensive
  • Overkill for summer conditions
  • Large pack size (4.7×12”)

Amazon Packed dimensions: 42x11cm 

The Elk River 1 (£299) is a superb one man design from Robens that tips the scales at just 1.5kg and packs down to 42x11cm making it light and small enough for backpacking weekends in the wilderness (or festival escapes on the train). It is not the absolute lightest, or most packable backpacking tent available - and some will argue anything more than a bivvy bag and a spork constitutes over packing - but for us, it offers the ideal balance of portability and comfort.

The front door has a surprisingly generous porch for stashing wet boots and packs, and the double zip allows for easy ventilation in the summer without leaving the door flapping. The double layer design is actually quite warm, making it suitable for multi-season trips, but as a result it can overheat a little in direct sunlight.

If you’ve not slept in a one person ultralight tent before, it’s important to understand that space really is at a premium. Coffins generally come with more wriggle room, and while the width (80cm at its widest) is snug, the extra height really helps you not to feel cocooned. Being able to sit up in the Elk River 1 is an underrated bonus.

The tent uses DAC alloy poles which form a wind-resistant exoskeleton and makes pitching and packing away a dream. We’ve not found many tents using DAC poles that didn’t impress us. And as with MSR, components and fabrics are of the best quality, and the use of hardwearing materials such as 75D polyester for the floor and 30D polyester on the flysheet means it will perform admirably for years.

Having to choose a product to spend the nights outdoors during the Transcontinental Race in 2017 I did a lot of research, I even studied every single product used by other participants in the past editions.

I wondered if it really made more sense to bring a sleeping bag, a waterproof bivvy or a simple fabric liner, or even not carry anything.

The size and weight factor is decisive, in the uncertainty of finding shelter every single night a bag/envelope was mandatory.

A sleeping bag, is cluttered and heavy even the in summer options, then in case of rain during an emergency stop it would become soaked and unusable.
An ultralight bivvy in plastic/aluminum is definitely a choice that saves space and weight at the price of taking a sauna every time you use it.
A fabric liner could be useful only if you stop indoors, in a bankomat’s cage or inside a bus stop, or coupled to a bivvy so as not to have the plastic or the aluminum part in contact with the skin.

In the end, the choice falls on a product produced by SOL, which stands for Survive Outside Longer, and it is precisely the name of the company that gives me confidence, along with the fact that Jesse Carrlson uses one, to convince me to opt for a brand.

The model I choose is not the ultralight plastic/aluminum one, nor the “luxurious” Escape model, but the Escape Light model which is the declination without frills (zipper and lanyard) of the latter that guarantees the impermeability of the material with a certain degree of transpiration.

The cylindrical case that contains it is of the same material as the bivvy itself and is really small in size, roughly those of a can of 33.

For the first Transcontinental I used the bivvy with a very cheap yoga mat (€ 3) bought at Decathlon, the peculiarity that this model is to fold superfast in a square, which eliminates the time, even the mental one, of rewind a standard mattress, as I had the luxury of being able to count on its 20 liters touring cycling bags, storing the mat was really a matter of seconds.

From the first night I found myself very comfortable using the bivvy with the mattress, the insulation was adequate and I was careful to end the day in a suitable place, so not in altitude nor near waterways. As the days went by the sack “softened”, the fabric effect became even more accentuated, making it perhaps a little less waterproof but more comfortable, after all I never had to sleep inside a bivvy under the rain.

Al rientro dalla Grecia, dopo almeno una decina di utilizzi, compresa l’ultima notte in traghetto sul ponte assieme a Riccardo, ho trovato nel sacco solo un paio di buchi provocati da qualche stoppa ed un piccolo strappo in un angolo.
Ho provveduto ad una riparazione casereccia applicando delle toppe di nastro americano da entrambi i lati.

Il biggie è stato usato per un intero anno di Trail e le Gravel su più giorni, l’ho lavato

Back from Greece, after at least a dozen uses, including the last night on the ferry bridge with Riccardo, I found in the bag only a couple of holes caused by some tow and a small tear in a corner.
At home I proceeded to repair it by applying some patches of American tape on both sides.

The bivvy was used for a whole year of Trails and the Gravels over several days, I washed it with some soap in cold water in a basin after each use and it always proved up to the next situation.

This summer it accompanied me for the second Transcontinental Race in 2018, using it this time even without a mat, directly on the asphalt if I could not find a bench or a table.

When he came back he did not have new holes and I continue to use it every time I need a small and light shelter, which is breathable and keeps me warm, the thermoregulation is determined by the amount of clothes that are kept on.

REI Co-op Superlight Bivy

Cons

  • High priced
  • Needs to be staked to use full floorspace

MSR E-Bivy

MSR E-Bivy

Weighing in at a miniscule 7oz / 198g, the super compact MSR E-Bivy is by far the most lightweight bivy sack on our list.

The use of colour coded DAC featherlite aluminium poles makes pitching a sinch (and also helps keep the weight down), but ingeniously Nemo includes a separate ‘Divvy sack’ which means you can split the load between you and your travelling companion. Arguably, if you travel in a pair, this becomes one of the lightest tents you could imagine. There’s also two doors, which is ridiculously sensible, bivvy bag decathlon you don’t have to clamber over anyone to escape.

As a totally freestanding design, the Dagger Ridge Porch 2 can be pitched just about anywhere, and we love the fact the doors can be flung (ok, tied) wide open to improve ventilation.

The  materials used are also of excellent quality, with the flysheet being made from a 40D ripstop nylon with a silicone coating, meaning any rain (or a hose in the garden in our case; it bivvy bag decathlon very dry when we tested) runs off in seconds.  

Pros: Divvy sack shares the load; lightweight; spacious

Cons: Nothing of note

Price: £650

What is a Bivvy Bag, and why do I need one? #Microadventure

Hi! I’mm Alastair, an adventurer and author. I invented the phrase #Microadventure and I’mve been shouting about it for a few years. You can follow the microadventures people are doing on social media here or say hello to me here.

This post will teach you everything about bivvy bags ready for your microadventure. If you’re looking for microadventure ideas try the Year of Microadventure Challenge, watch a few videos of my microadventures or -best of all- buy a signed copy of the best-selling Microadventures book!

This is a tent:

Iceland campsite

For overnight microadventures, however, I encourage people to try using a bivvy bag instead.

  • A bivvy bag is like a waterproof jacket for your sleeping bag. It’s a thin, waterproof bag. You use it over the top of your sleeping bag.
  • A bivvy bag is cheaper than a tent.
  • It’s a lot smaller than junior all american basketball camp tent.
  • It’s very discreet and allows you to sleep on tiny patches of flat ground.
  • You are not cocooned from the environment as you are in a tent. In a tent you bivvy bag decathlon basically in a rubbish version of indoors. In a bivvy bag you really are outside. You feel the breeze on your face, bivvy bag decathlon, look up at the stars before you sleep and sit up to a brilliant view in the morning.
  • It feels more exciting and more wild than a tent.
  • Here is a picture of a bivvy bag to give you an idea of how small they are:
    Bivvy bag
  • If it rains you will have a less pleasant night than if you were in a tent / 5 star hotel. (Taking a basha will help a lot though, bivvy bag decathlon. Here is the extra gear you should pack if you think it might rain.)
  • Even the best bivvy bags leave some condensation on your sleeping bag. For a single-night trip this is no problem, but for extended use you need to be able to hang your sleeping bag up to dry occasionally.
  • Just slip it over your sleeping bag. If I am organised I do this before leaving home rather than doing it later in the dark and pouring rain.
  • Pull it up over your head when you sleep. Just leave a small gap for your mouth to breathe out of in order to minimise the condensation.
  • I tend to leave my sleeping mat on the outside. If the weather is foul or if you have a large bivvy bag you can experiment with putting it inside the bivvy bag.
  • Remember to take a large waterproof bag (eg bin bag) to put your other stuff into at night. I tend to use my boots and rucksac as a pillow.
  • A bivvy bag is colder than a tent so make sure to take warm clothes.

[UPDATE: this east high school erie pa football a very geeky, very helpful table to help you choose what’s best for you.]

Budget

If you are confident that the weather is going to be warm and dry then you don’t need one at all. I’mve slept like this on many, many nights.

camping on the banks of the Yukon

If you are in the UK there is usually a risk of rain. The cheapest way to stay dry is with one of these orange survival bags, bivvy bag decathlon. They are a handy thing to own anyway if you are heading into the hills.

The chief disadvantage of these is that you will realise in the morning how much vapour your body gives off in a night! Your sleeping bag will be quite damp. (See facial expression on man above…) But for a single night microadventure they are absolutely fine, bivvy bag decathlon. And they only cost about £5.

Buy one here.

Mid-Range

A step-up from the orange bin bag option is this breathable bivvy bag for £17. The British Army’s bivvy bags are good too. They are GoreTex, a discreet green and enormous (a good and bad point). Buy one here for about £40.

Luxury Bivvy

If you think you will use your bivvy bag regularly, bivvy bag decathlon, for multiple nights, or if you are going to bivvy in more difficult conditions, here are a couple of really good breathable bivvy bags:

  1. Alpkit Hunka (£47)
  2. Hunka XL (£69)

The picture below shows an Army bivvy on the left, a Rab one in the middle and a snoring Welshman in an unknown bivvy on the right.

I hope this all helps. Contact me if you need any more help (after checking this first, of course!). If the weather is nice I cannot over-state how cool newark catholic football roster is…

If it’s not nice, then a basha means you’ll still have fun. I really recommend a basha if the weather is a bit dodgy!

Snugpak Stratosphere Bivvi Shelter

Snugpak Stratosphere Bivvi Shelter

More of a happy medium between a tent and a bivy sack, the Stratoshpere combines the features of both to form a beast of a bivi bag or a very miniature tent. Let’s start with the drawbacks – it weighs, quite frankly, a heck of a lot! At 39 oz, the Stratosphere is comparable to many one-person tents. But don’t be put off just yet! For all those added ounces, you really do get something very versatile and unique. This Bivvi Shelter is a gap-bridger between a tent and minimalist bivy bags. It’s very spacious, very robust, tough, and offers great weatherproofing. For those seeking an emergency shelter or lightweight nook for a few summer nights in the outdoors, this may well be overkill. For long-distance trekkers who fancy a bit of space at the end of the day without the weight of a tent, bivvy bag decathlon, however, it might just be the solution you’re looking for!

Pros

  • Reasonably priced
  • Very spacious (42”W x 90”L x 37”H)
  • Roll-away mosquito net
  • Good water resistance
  • Very well made

Cons

  • Very heavy (39oz)
  • Not the most breathable
  • Large pack size (14 x 4 x 6”)
  • Did we mention that it’s heavy?!

US Army Military Camo Bivy

US Army Military Camo Bivy

When an item of gear carries the tag ‘military issue’, this usually suggests it’s a heavy-duty, frill-free workhorse. The Camo Bivy is just that type of bivy. It’s mightily heavy and not the most spacious sack out there, but contends with other ‘all-in’ bivies like the Stratosphere and Chinook Summit in terms of quality of build and value for money. It’s made of Gore-Tex fabrics for year-round weatherproofing, offers decent breathability and boasts some nice touches such as heat-sealed seams and a handy, bad-weather storm flap.

Pros

  • Gore-Tex materials
  • Military issue
  • Reasonably priced
  • Heat-sealed seams
  • Solid weatherproofing
  • Storm flap prevents the build up of snow or rainwater

Cons

  • Very heavy (40oz)
  • Not the most spacious (84” x 35” x 23”)

Sierra Designs Backcountry Bivy

Sierra Designs Backcountry Bivy

The SD Backcountry has a bivvy bag decathlon going for it given its very wallet-friendly price. It weighs a tiny 14 oz, packs down to 3 x 10 inches and features both great breathability and awesome waterproofing. It also boasts a very useful bug mesh netting which allows you to pull down the hood on summer nights without worrying about your face becoming a midnight snack for peckish, airborne locals. On the downside, this isn’t as tough as other bivies such as the Rab Alpine, bivvy bag decathlon, Alpkit Hunka or the OR Alpine, and its poleless design means the fabrics will be against your face while you sleep. Nevertheless, this bivy offers fantastic reliability and value for money.

Pros

  • Cheap!
  • Weighs only 14oz
  • Very reliable waterproofing
  • Small pack size (3 x 10”)
  • Made bivvy bag decathlon Ripstop nylon materials
  • Great breathability
  • Bug netting

Cons

  • Poleless design means the fabric is on your face
  • Regular size (large is available) only 82” long
  • Ripstop nylon is bivvy bag decathlon thin (20D on the shell, bivvy bag decathlon, 30D on the floor)

Rab Survival Zone Bivi

Rab Survival Zone Bivi

Light, waterproof, spacious and breathable, bivvy bag decathlon, the Rab Survival Zone is a true box-ticker of a bivy’s most desirable and ‘must have’ features. It’s also exceptionally well made, featuring tough, 70D Hyperlite Storm fabric and a zipless design to minimize weight and potential zip malfunctioning and/or fabric rippage. On the downside, the lack of a zip means a fair amount of wiggle-work to get yourself in there and, you guessed it, it’s pricey!

Pros

  • Very light (15.5oz)
  • Small pack size (4 x 10”)
  • Made with 70D Hyperlite Storm material
  • 95” long
  • Very breathable
  • Great weatherproofing

Cons

  • Tricky to get in and out (no side zip)
  • Pricey
