Ultimate Direction PB Adventure Vest

rated 5 of 5 stars I rarely write a review where I don't have a con. I looked long and hard for one on this piece of gear, but really couldn't find it, at least in functionality. I'm a bigger runner, so I notice that you must get the bigger size with this product or it just will be too small. I love the amount of gear it can carry, very versatile if you don't want to put a bottle in you can use that pocket for a myriad of other uses.   Great gear for both road and trail. Highly recommend.   Full review

Sea to Summit Pack Tap

rated 2.5 of 5 stars This is a great product that served me well for two years of about once monthly use. I was loving the ease of use and the ability to carry so much more water. It was all going well till out on a hike the Pack Tap started leaking around the seam that the opening attached to the bag with. I can no longer use it as it leaks too rapidly. Luckily it broke on me on my last day of the hike and I had another bottle with me to use. Full review

Blackhawk! Barrage Hydration Pack

rated 4 of 5 stars A heavy-duty "military style" 3-day pack that is designed to last forever, no matter what you do with it. Although BlackHawk! categorizes it as a hydration pack, I believe the hydration bladder is a small portion of this pack. I purchased this pack prior to a deployment overseas in 2008 and it still looks brand new today. In between being an every day carry item thru Kuwait and Afghanistan, it has also been used as a day pack for hikes and hunting. As well as a great commuter bag and travel bag. … Full review

Nalgene 32 oz Narrow Mouth Tritan

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Used on the trail for a long time, but there are many more lightweight options now so I use it at work and day-to-day now. Full review

Platypus Hoser

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great reservoir, no taste or smell, and no leaks. I've been a hiker for a while now and have always used a simple Nalgene bottle, but finally gave in and purchased this 3L Platypus reservoir to go in a reservoir compatible day pack I already owned.   My first issue was that the sleeve in the day pack was too small for this enormous water bladder. Once I got it situated in my pack and routed the hose I was all set. The advantage of course is that when I want a drink I don't have to try and contort… Full review

Osprey Viper 7

rated 4 of 5 stars Huge Osprey Fan. I've owned three Osprey packs, and will likely own more in my future. This is a simple, do all pack for biking or quick hikes. Bought this on Steep and Cheap for a song, so it was a win no matter the outcome. This is a simple hydration pack that has plenty of features for everything you do. Great for mountain biking. Big enough for rain layer, snacks and tools, has hemet lock also. I also use mine as a quick daypack. Great for my First Aid, SOL kit and snacks. Stretchy outer stuff… Full review

Osprey Mira 26

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great little pack for the money. I'm an ultralight hiker and I can make this little pack work well for multi-day hikes. I'm an ultralight hiker. I can pack a hammock, straps, food, and change of clothing all in this pack. The rain cover pocket works great for a change of clothes or the legs to your shorts. I can put enough in it for about four days. The trampoline back I can take or leave; when you're hot and sweat is pouring off of you nothing short of being indoors will help. I love… Full review

MSR DromLite Bag

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Light and effective water supply bag for backpacking. I've used the 6L sized bag for many years. I carry it empty until near camp and then fill it as a water supply for around camp. These DromLite bags are a little lighter than the black MSR Dromedary bags. They are sufficiently durable for backpacking. I've never had any leakage issues, and the contents have never had a bad taste. I once had to replace a bag that was punctured by a pair of teeth from a pesky rodent wandering around camp at night… Full review

MSR Dromedary Bags

rated 5 of 5 stars I have borrowed the 10L dromedary from a friend a few times and love it! I have this dromedary on my list as one of my next purchases for sure. This dromedary stands up to a lot more than a plastic dromedary will. I have used it on a few treks and absolutely love it. It is very convenient that I am able to attach the dromedary to my backpack, instead of having to lug something by hand around to have water. Full review
