There's two schools of thought for gravel rides. There are riders who prefer a traditional, zippered, 3 pocket, collared jersey. For them we recommend the Continental with its comfortable fit, durable, wicking fabric, and yes, three big pockets. Then there's the camp who prefers something more minimal and less body-hugging. For those riders, we have the Tellus Jersey. It's not only super lightweight (a mere 4 ounces, to be exact), but it has been specifically designed for all-day, off-road comfort.
We developed the Summit Stratos "12-Hour" Bibs with ultra-endurance events like the Dirty Kanza, one of the world's premiere gravel grinders, in mind. They are guaranteed to provide all-day comfort over challenging terrains. But, if you're looking for a more compressive fit, you'll want the Summit Raptor. Its tightly-woven fabric provides muscle-soothing support. For those who prefer baggies when they hit the dirt, we recommend an Apex Bib Liner and the extremely durable Terrain Short (with zippered pockets for plenty of accessories).
