CamelBak Charge LR 70 Oz Hydration Pack

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Awesome pack for biking. Great for day hikes and biking. Lots of room for gear. Only drawback is that the last few oz of water are difficult to drink due to the bladder configuration. Full review

Teton Sports Oasis 1100

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great product for day hikes, music festivals, or even just long-distance traveling. Plenty of room for stuff with several smaller, individual compartments. Includes a rain cover and plenty of straps for attaching other gear. Great value compared to other brands given the high performance. Highly recommended. Straps and pack fit me well (I'm an average size 6' male). Advertised volume is accurate, fits a good bit of gear. Pack rides well even when full and heavy with water. Product is well-constructed. Full review

CamelBak Better Bottle .75 Liter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I would highly recommend this product! While some argue that it grows mold easily I have found that with proper use it doesn't at all and Camelbak honors its warranty so any issues that may arise they are happy to help/ send a new item if there is something wrong with the one you have. The water bottle is easy to refill and the perfect size to take with you on the go with easy access and NO LEAKING!!!! It will not leak as long as you don't make the mistake I did and remove the wall flat rubber piece… Full review

Nalgene 32 oz Wide Mouth Tritan

rated 5 of 5 stars Great bottle. Own multiple. Great strong water bottles. Nearly indestructible. Love them for backpacking and just about anything. Full review

Osprey Raptor 10

rated 5 of 5 stars This backpack is a great mtn biking pack. One of the best investments I ever made. Great overall pack. Full review

Innate Motus V2

rated 3.5 of 5 stars An elegantly designed, high quality water bottle with a bit of an identity crisis: it claims at least one backcountry feature, but it is more at home in the car on the morning commute or in the boardroom than in the wilderness. The first question that popped in my head when I saw this water bottle was this.  Backcountry . . . Or boardroom? Initial Impressions When I first opened the Motus V2, I knew immediately that it was a quality product from a manufacturer that attends to detail. The brushed… Full review

Outdoor Products Mist

rated 4 of 5 stars The Mist is an 8 L capacity daypack with a 2 L Camelback-style, water bladder included. At its price point, it is surprisingly well featured and versatile with three separate pockets to make organizing your gear a snap. Even when fully loaded it's quite comfortable to carry, and includes a full set of harness options. The Mist from Outdoor Products is only an 8 L capacity "daypack", but it has a lot of the bells and whistles that the larger, and more expensive packs have. This includes a 2 L Camelback-style,… Full review

Klean Kanteen Reflect Kanteen

rated 4.5 of 5 stars No plastic, no paint, nowhere. Klean Kanteen touts this bottle as one of their uber-sustainable products. Like all other Klean Kanteen products, this bottle is made of stainless steel (18/8 in this case), but what makes this bottle unique is that it only contains two other materials -— a small silicone ring (food-grade, of course) on the cap to create a tight seal and a bamboo top (sustainably harvested, they say) on the cap. Size and Weight: Holds 27 fl. oz. (800mL) and is on the more tall and… Full review

CamelBak Octane XCT

rated 5 of 5 stars I love the large capacity bladder, but yet it maintains a lightweight sleek form about it. I use it during every ultra I run. I also love the detachable hose, makes for easy cleaning. I like the weight, shape, and overall design of the pack. Plenty of internal storage and also a place to strap a jacket to on the outside. Very versatile. I can even wear it without a shirt and it doesn't rub or create any hot spots. Good, solid, affordable setup. Full review
