What I bring to my Cycling session - Brandon's Picks

Coming from a small tropical country, people here find many different ways of transportation. My personal favourite is cycling, just the sheer sense of freedom you get by riding your bike through the wind is what gets me up every morning so, these are my 4 essentials for cycling with OUTSIDE.

CHUMS FES HAT

To help beat the heat in tropical countries, or just wanting a hat that is of a more adventurous silhouette Chums has you covered with their Fes Bucket hat. Personally I prefer having a hat on during my trip to keep everything in place and make sure I have my eye on the path.

 

KÅNKEN HIP PACK

 

The Kanken Hip Pack is most probably the most essential item on this list. Personally having one million things to carry (Phone, wallet, bottle, hand sanitiser)
in my hand is a chore. Another plus is the convenience that the pack provides, it doesn't hinder my hands and doesn't feel heavy on my back allowing me to manoeuvre easily. The Kanken Hip Pack is most definitely essential.

UNITED BY BLUE-32OZ STAINLESS STEEL BOTTLE

Coming from a tropical country, I'm always feeling thirsty, if I walked outside for 5 minutes I probably finished a litre of water. For me trying to stay environmentally friendly whilst still keeping up hydration is extremely important. Thus by using United By Blue's stainless steel bottle I can. As well as having a design on the bottle true to myself adds a plus.

 

KEEN NEWPORT H2 SANDAL

Lastly, the Keen Newport. The functionality, wearability and overall aesthetic are essential to cycling. The Newport allows for a more rounded silhouette whilst still keeping my feet cool. As well as the patented toe protection and Metatomical footbed design gives my feet both protection and grip. The Newport is more than a cycling essential, it's an everyday essential.
