A kit for under $150 takes you from road to gravel to trail
Fall means it’s time to venture off the paved road once in a while and hit the path less traveled. Recently, Reggie launched their Ramble series that takes you from road to gravel to trail. This versatile gear is available in men’s and women’s sizing and each piece is only $71.
The jersey is available in three different designs, with the Col providing the most visibility on the road. Reggie went with a cycling style jersey because they felt it was the most versatile, taking you from road to trail. It is made from technical fabric, has a full front zipper for easy on/off and venting, 3 large rear pockets with a fourth security zipper pocket. The fit is a little looser than Reggie’s other jerseys which I reviewed thus allows room for a base layer underneath.
The staff at Reggie have a great sense of humor which can be found in their product names. The A-L shorts stands for Anti-Lycra. The design moves away from the roadie look, but still comfortable enough for any style of riding. I tested the A-L shorts on gravel and MTB rides, just adding my own padded liner.
The 4-way stretch moves with you as not to impede your pedal stroke. It also allows room for a padded liner or shorts/bibs. The A-L shorts are so comfortable, I wore them without the pad on hikes, errands, and working around the yard.
To dial in the comfort, the back vent panel keeps you cool and two side slide buckles securely adjust the waist. There’s no gapping at the back of the waist. When I wore the shorts the slide buckles and straps held just fine, but when pulling them on or off the straps slid out of the buckles. I had to rethread the straps each time, which only took a second, but I see this as a design flaw.
Finally, if the four pockets on the Col jersey aren’t enough, the A-L shorts have two rear facing zippered thigh pockets with room for your phone, nutrition, etc.
If you’re looking for a stylish, comfortable and performing kit for road, gravel or trail, take a look at Reggie’s new Ramble series. For under $150 you can get a pair of shorts and pair it with one of three jersey designs.
