1. Sea to Summit Telos Bikepacking TR2 Tent
You could try crawling your old backpacking tent into your kit, but the new Telos Bikepacking TR2 is specifically designed to stuff bikes with short poles that fit over your handlebars. The tent is also packed inside two waterproof dry bags, so you can split the load between your packs and tackle rainstorms or mud puddles without worry. As for the tent itself, it’s particularly spacious thanks to the Tension Ridge geometry, which creates vertical walls and adds loft space to the two-person interior to increase ventilation so the walls don’t collapse when you wake up.
