GARNEAU GRITY T-SHIRT AND LEEWAY 2 SHORT REVIEW

Bikepacking is something I want to discover more and when Garneau asked me to review the Grity t-shirt and the Leeway 2 short, it was the perfect reason to go for few small trips.

I must admit that even on ‘’regular’’ rides. I like to wear shorts too. It is more ‘’appropriate’’ when we stop for a more than deserved cerveza. For me the fit, comfort and being practical is more than a must. Let’s see if this combo did the job.

Grity t-shirt


On paper this t-shirt looked like any other bike jersey I had and when it came in…I was really impressed. Not only the fit of this t-shirt is perfect with being not loose like a mountain bike jersey and not tight like a conventional road jersey. The fabric is highly breathable and light. It gives you a sensation of having anything on you. For me it is a big plus.

Leeway 2 short


The Leeway 2 short is not your conventional short. It has a 2 way stretch/breathable fabric with a water resistant treatment. It also has an adjustable waist with hooks. In my opinion this need to be rethinked. They have used a straight sewing which is not suitable to tension when you put the hook on. I suggest a bartack type of sewing (similar to a tight zig zag pattern) that would be more resistant with time.

The side pocket are super deep which is perfect to bring snacks and small items. I appreciated the removable inner shorts that is super comfortable even on long rides.

I suggest trying the short on before buying. I normally wear a large size, and medium would have been perfect versus the large I have received which was still ‘’ok’’ size wise.

In conclusion


For 77.00$ cad for the t-shirt and 132.00$ cad for the short, it is a good price/quality ratio. Garneau will give other brands a run for their money. It is my favorite bikepacking kit as of now.
