- Light and Fast Packs for Bikepacking | by Dave Chenault. Backpacks are as important for bikepacking as they are for backpacking. In some respects, perhaps more so. Descending technical singletrack where a crash can mean serious injury is difficult enough, doing so while carrying gear to camp out in freezing temperatures and calories for 300 miles of riding can be even more so, unless the proper gear is deployed.

The first article in the series was an Introduction to Lightweight Bikepacking, the second is this article, and the third a discussion of Rackless Carry Systems for Bikepacking.
