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.

Ever since he can remember he was riding bikes not being attracted to video games. In his teenage years he was racing bikes until he had a big accident that slowed him down and at a certain point he stopped riding. It is few years later that came he back on a bike and got the ‘’bug’’ again to be more serious about it and started a bike related blog. It is after a trip during covid that he realized that it would be great to talk about all his outdoor passions but with the perspective to inform the regular non technical people. This is how Allday magazine was born.
