Your Cold Weather Biking Guide

Stay warm. Look good.

By The Editors

Cold weather, like a Taylor Swift album that nobody wants, is coming.

Your morning bike commute is about to get chilly and damp.

Luckily the city’s finest names in cycling gear have no intention of leaving you out in the breeze (or dressed like a tool, for that matter).

For your sartorial discernment:

The Shirt

Best known for their exceptional mountain biking attire, the guys at Kitsbow are redefining the form-to-function ratio of cycling gear with their new and limited edition Icon shirt. Pendleton wool meets technical performance. Available in two colorways. Blink and you’ll miss it.

The Pants

From Mission Bicycle Company, the guys behind that retroreflective Lumen bike, comes your new favorite pair of riding jeans — dubbed Osloh. Cut in relaxed, slim and cargo styles to fit your taste, these bad boys were built from the ground up by cyclists, for cyclists, but look right at home in polite society.

The Pack

Brand new from Berkeley’s Inside Line Equipment, the Apex daypack is the perfect blend of practicality and adventure readiness. The smallest ILE pack to date (they make some monsters), this baby will haul all of your workplace necessaries, but it can also swing double duty with hydration for weekend jaunts.
