Bib shorts aren’t usually much to get excited about, but Rapha’s new (cheaper) cargo shorts will change the way you stuff stuff.
Originally designed for the “bikepacking” crowd, Rapha released their original cargo bib shorts a year ago to wide acclaim—allowing riders to carry gear in their bib shorts, eschewing the need for saddle bags, stuffed jersey pockets, or extra on-bike storage. This would seem like a ridiculous and unnecessary feature, until you try them. The addition of pockets allows you to carry more when riding with a jersey, or simply leave the jersey at home and ride in your favorite T-shirt while still bringing your essentials (imagine the fashion possibilities!). With the included tech t-shirt, this bundle is a great choice for gift givers.
