Nittany Mountain Works Cordura Ditty Bag

This little itty bitty Ditty Bag makes for a useful and sturdy extra pouch for organizing things. Two different sizes and a WIIIIIIIDE spectrum of color options (190 different possible options) meets the needs and desires of many. No frills, just a pouch made of strong materials and a burly zipper. Usage: I’ve used the Cordura Ditty Bag from Nittany Mountain Works for about a year now and find myself wanting (and soon getting) more of them. Initially used to store keys, phone, and wallet in one… Full review

Hyperlite Mountain Gear Prism Crampon Bag

The Hyperlite Mountain Gear Crampon case is, as it sounds, a case designed to protect your stuff from the numerous sharp points inherent to a piece of gear designed to stick into ice. Made from DCF fabric and lined with a rigid foam this case is light (4.0 ounces), protective...and too small (I have tried both the Grivel G12 and the Black Diamond Sabretooth Pro with it). EASE OF USE Winter gear needs to be able to work consistently and easily, and if it doesn’t then it’s frustrating, or worse. Full review

Hyperlite Mountain Gear Prism Ice Screw Case

The Hyperlite Mountain Gear (HMG) Prism Ice Screw case is as it sounds—a case designed to carry your ice screws. At 5.4 ounces it weighs half the weight, carries more screws (sleeves for 10 can carry more in the space between), and will set you back double the price of comparable carrying options. The reason the case is so light, and the price is so high, is that it is made out of HMG’s DCF (Dyneema Composite fabric). EASE OF USE There are a couple of major selling points in the design of this… Full review

Gossamer Gear Hipster

This is one tough fanny pack. It can withstand heavy use and abuse, and your sunscreen, camera, keys, or snacks etc. are easy to access. The Hipster is great for hiking and backpacking, whenever you're looking for a little more easily accessible pocket space. Ease of use: The Hipster is simple to use. You just strap it on as desired, under or over the hip belt of your pack, and off you go. The zipper never gets caught when opening and closing and the pocket can fit a phone, camera, bar(s), keys,… Full review

Deuter Camera Case III

Camera pouch which can be mounted on your belt or the shoulder strap of your rucksack. A brilliantly practical device which allows one-handed access to your camera. The Camera Case III is the largest in a series of camera pouches produced by Deuter. It is a wonderfully practical means of keeping your camera handy while walking. You can wear it on your belt or on the shoulder strap of your backpack. I keep mine on my left shoulder strap as shown below. The zipper is on the right, so I can open the… Full review

Mystery Ranch Wet Rib

Puts your water where you can get to it often and easily, along with a map, sunblock, glasses, and other things you want close at hand. In wilderness first aid training we are taught to assume anyone in the wilderness is dehydrated, even if there is water all around in streams and ponds and the person is carrying water. Even with in-pack hydration it can be hard to drink enough because sucking on a tube causes a walker to lose his breath and stop drinking too early, and bottles carried elsewhere… Full review

Mystery Ranch Wet Rib

Highly recommend for winter hikes. If you don't like to take off and put on your pack through the day, this backpack accessory is the ticket. I use this mainly for winter hikes where you don't want to fuss with taking your pack off and on. In the winter I want to keep moving and stay warm, this accessory allows me to do that with storage for my map, compass, mittens, snacks and medication. The zippers work great although I did add MSR Universal Reflective Zippers for easier grip with mittens. As… Full review
