How about a printed beard?

Like this (but not like this)

And a printed dangly mug on the back?

We go out into the hills to lose ourselves, not to get lost. You are only lost if you need to be somewhere else and if you really need to be somewhere else then you're probably in the wrong place to begin with.

This would be ideal for me.

Time I bought one. I’ll go with whatever gets chosen, as long as it’s not gopping. Possibly a gilet too, if it’s an option.

For bikepacking and long day rides I wear merino, if I don’t I can’t go too close to others due to the stink. So might not buy a jersey.

As an option for those of us that stink, is it possible to have a bear bones patch that can be sewed onto my bikepacking bags or maybe somewhere on my merino shirt? Thinking of a standard patch rather than one of the event patches.

It's something I have considered in the past. I've not dismissed the idea but the problem lies with minimum orders ... I'd outlay £150 or so, which I likely wouldn't see back for 12 to 18 months. I'll give it some more consideration though.

Okay, here's a couple of ideas that incorporate some of the things mentioned within this post. Nothing set in stone / nothing yet decided, this is simply a continuation from where we are. Anything you like, anything you don't?

I know that it's impossible to keep everyone happy but hopefully we can find something to suit most ... anyway, take a look.

Option 2 for me - I like the juxtaposition of the cuddly bear on the front and the zombie bear on the back

a third option to see if playing.

stop being soft bear on the front

rider's name and "ride, eat, sleep, repeat" on the back (feel that sums us up)

with skull bear on each arm sleeve

Hmmmm... the dead bear on its own in the orange circle on the front would be nice. Less is more ;)

Third option works the best, of those three

Ride eat sleep repeat is the best bit for me. Stop being soft also works good, TLS is too much of a TLA that only us lot will recognise

How about zombie bear only in front, no TLS,
stop being soft text only on the rear with name and bear and crossbones on the sleeve?

Also a slightly more subtle colour other than orange.

+1. Don't really fancy having to explain the Boner thing over and over.

I agree less is more.... so long as the orange and black colour way stay I'm happy.

Prefer the ride eat sleep repeat. Don't fancy wearing a soft boner in public!

Do not put ‘Boner’ anywhere

It’s not big and it’s not clever ;-)

That could work

Option four

Skull bear only on front

Name and “ride, eat, sleep, repeat” on back

Stop being soft bear on each arm sleeve

Skull bear could make a good “medal”; hang on a chain a present for the missus

Would the bearbonesbikepacking.co.uk look better in white on the back also?

:-bd the skull bear doesn't need to be in a circle either? Just the skull in whatever colour is chosen.

As for colours, I like the current colour but it matches my shoes :smile: or yellow?

Slightly off topic, I was in a 4x4 club once and we decided we should get some t shirts printed. It took six months worth of committee meetings and multiple votes to decide on the colour, we eventually settled on a dark blue with a yellow embroidered logo. The person doing the ordering ticked the wrong box and when they arrived they were cyan with a yellow logo :lol:

Option 2 with the long sleeve version (now summer is over and the need for a short sleeve top is gone) is all black below the orange stripe. :-bd
