Being up to 60%(some more,some less dependent on age)of the human body is comprised of water....

Are my boots a container? Technically they do contain my feet. Then ya have my pack contains my gear, my tent & sleeping bag contain me, so on and so forth.

So technically I have alot of containers to work with. 

Just being goofy like always. :)

Like the redesign on the glasses. Way cool.

Actually, you're not being that goofy. We had similar thoughts about gear as containers.

For now I'll say, we're looking to award writers of liquid containers this week, but we reserve the right to look at any others we like when we do the drawing.

We're aiming to do giveaways of gear and goodies every other week, so you'll have opportunities to review pretty much anything you're ready to review and potentially be in a drawing at the same time. You could do containers this week and in two weeks maybe it will be paddling or hiking gear or something.

Rick,

maybe you could drink from your boots too and save carrying a cup :)

Gary, 

Hmmmm. Maybe I could mix up a batch of "swampfoot brew" after a week on the trail. 

Then again, I could just wring out my socks(for flavor of course.)

:p

Gag!

You guys are making my friends marinara and pasta spiced with Tabasco, cocktail Winnies, and smoked canned oysters sound appetizing.

Thanks to everyone who's contributed a review so far, and at any time to Trailspace.

Keep them coming! Each container review counts as an entry.

Oh!  Back out of the mountains at the right time!

Alicia - Failing a winning entry... can we purchase one of these beauties?  I promise to take pictures of various Montana micros in it...

I watched the barefoot guy on dual survival do just that. He was sucking the juice out of his outer pair of socks instead of drinking the boiled snow melt. The guy is amazing with his primitive survival skills but that is foolish with clean fresh snow to melt. He was sitting in front of a fire at the time.

Welcome back, Cleric!

You can't purchase one currently, but we'll continue to give them away in various promotions and also are considering offering them to members for sale in the future. It's something we'll definitely keep in mind.
