Editor’s Dozen: Neil’s Favorite Gear of 2020

In our latest video, Neil handpicks 12 of his favorite cycling and camping products that were new to him in 2020. Find a variety of great bikepacking gear in here, with a selection of products ranging from handmade bags to Neil’s new found favorite water filter, all priced under $150…

It’s always challenging to pick through all the great bikepacking gear that we test each year and then package it up in our annual Gear of the Year Awards. There are usually a lot of great products left on the table. So, this year we’re continuing the tradition of our Editors Dozen lists, each containing a collection of things we found particularly useful while out bikepacking. To kick it off, here’s a first, a video showcasing 12 gear picks that YouTube host Neil Beltchenko used and loved in 2020.
