PB Adventure Vest

rated 5 of 5 stars Vest is so light. Love the bottles in front. Vest is so light, it has no structure. Structure comes from the gear inside, and when not full the pack tightens down nicely to re-size. Love the bottles in front.  If you need a super lightweight, full of features vest, this is a great one. Watch the sizing—it runs small and long. Full review

FastDraw Extreme

rated 4 of 5 stars I would recommend this bottle for anyone looking a quality 20 ounce bottle that doesn't leak. The removal handheld carrier means you can use it for any outdoor sport in which quick access to water is needed. I have used this bottle for both cycling and running on and off trails.

I have only used the bottle… Full review

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This pack has survived over 80 miles worth of mud and obstacle runs, including barb wire crawls, mud pits and swimming over small bodies of water and it has been amazing. The ability to have a small bottle to use for quick protein/supplement shakes is key for me finishing without cramping and properly fueled. Fit: I am 6ft 1 and broad shouldered and this pack feels and fits great. Comfort: The vest fits and feels great and I can sprint with it or climb with it. Capacity: Fits more then you will… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars For a real quick hour hike up the mountain, a jog or a couple hours with a crash pad on your back this is a fantastic pack! I love to take it bouldering, because I can wear it like a fanny pack and it looks cooler, it holds all that I need and my shoes and chalk bag clip on the outside. The pockets can hold quite a bit! I have stashed some candy and bars in them, also my sunglasses.  A single water bottle is actually kind of nice. I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys quick jaunts up into… Full review
