In our third Collective Reward, we’re giving one Bikepacking Collective member a set of award-winning adventure apparel from Search and State, makers of some of the world’s best performance and lifestyle clothing. Not a member of the Bikepacking Collective yet? Learn how you can support BIKEPACKING.com and receive a bunch of great benefits here.

For this giveaway, one Bikepacking Collective member will receive a Search and State PJ-1 Hooded Packable Expedition Jacket and a pair of waxed cotton Field Shorts, both designed and sewn in New York City’s Garment District. Our own Joe Cruz served as a consultant in the design of the PJ-1, and he wrote an excellent piece on Search and State here.

Already a member of the Bikepacking Collective? You’re entered to win. Thanks for your support!

Packable Expedition Jacket

The PJ-1 is Search and State’s Hooded Packable Expedition Jacket, conceived after weeks of riding across the US on the Search Brigade. It’s packable, completely waterproof, windproof, and breathable. As a medium-weight jacket, it was designed to be comfortable for long rides in a variety of conditions, as well as off the bike in casual conditions. It features a drawstring hood that stows into the collar when not in use, and the whole jacket packs into its own pocket, down to about the size of a softball. One winner will receive a black PJ-1 in the size of their choice.

Field Shorts

The Search and State Field Shorts have been tested on the bike all over the world, from Cuba, to Tasmania, and all the way across the US. They’re made from durable waxed cotton and treated with machine-washable wax, making them resistant to water and stains, while also remaining plenty breathable. One winner will also receive a pair of olive Field Shorts in the size of their choice.

    Looks like nice stuff! Why do they only make ‘adventure’ stuff for men? (Having just checked their website)

  • Gin is sporting a PJ-1 on our current Armenia trip and loves it… it looks great on here and I’d say it’s definitely universal.

    Good to know! Thanks for the reply :)

    Nice threads but the little boy hypster sizes don’t work for big boys like me, too bad there’s no XXL options.

  • Would love to be able to get SAS in the UK!

  • Daniel Pastrana

    How/where do you guys announce the winners for these rewards? Oh, and thanks for doing this for members!

  • Hi Daniel. We’ll be drawing the first five on July 26th (exactly one month from the Bikepacking Collective/Journal launch). After that, we’ll be announcing more Rewards (every 2-4 weeks) and each of those will be drawn the day the subsequent one is announced.
