Perfect companion for hiking, trekking, climbing, bicycling, skiing, mountaineering.


  • Comfort
  • Reliable hi-tech bladder
  • Light weight


  • None

I bought it a year ago and since then it became my partner in all my endeavors. I even could not expect that its functionality extends beyond usual description.

Consider it as good backpack. It big enough to contain lunch sandwich, raincoat, headlight, maps, photo camera,  compass, wallet and, yes, 2-liter water bladder. What else do you need for a day hike?

It is very easy. You know, weight is important, especially if you go uphill or climb. I always take it to treks.

It's perfectly attached to the body. You don't feel it even when you run trails.

And last, it's good looking. I take it to my social gatherings and sometimes to work. Of course without bladder. I have it in red-ochre color.

The bladder itself is a piece of mind. Made from some advanced hi-tech material it prevents water and Gatorade I use occasionally from spoiling. Lock and mouthpiece are very convenient and reliable, no spills.

For the very hot summer day hikes I place bladder into freezer overnight. Thermo-isolation is so good I still have cold water for the most of the day.
