Sea to Summit Watercell X

A versatile, practical, and durable water storage and carrying system for camping and backpacking. Available in 4-, 6-, 10-, and 20-liter versions. Can be used for washing and even showering. Could be lighter and more compact when not in use, but this would probably require a thinner, less resistant fabric and compromise durability. The first time I saw the Watercell X I was camping and this family in a tent right next to my hammock had two, the 10L and 20L versions.   I thought both were too big… Full review

Maxam Trailblazer 1-Quart Aluminum Canteen Kit

I was asked from viewers to do more reviews here. Not to worry, "I Got Your Six". So time to "Bite the Bullet" and get to the review "Geronimo" ! Yes, we are saying Army phrases for a reason, as I would like to introduce you to the Maxam Trailblazer 1 Quart Aluminum Canteen Kit. For many of you out there, this is your water container, drinking cup, container to boil water in, and a cup to cook food in. An all-in-one mess kit. This kind of water storage and cooking setup may not be for everyone,… Full review

Platypus Water Tank

I've been a fan of Platypus products since my son gifted me a 1-Liter bag years ago. Consequently, I have since acquired a few other Platypus bags due to their durability, convenience, and collapsibility. Then I bought the 6 Liter Water Tank. It misses the mark big time and almost ruined a camping trip. My son and I were planning a multiple day outing to a BLM location where we knew they had no potable water, as we had been there before. We planned for four days and at the suggested 1-gallon-per-day-per-person,… Full review

Reliance Nylon Collapsible Water Container

Very durable, easy to pack and use, with none of the fuss of rigid containers. Non-sloshing water storage without having to deal with bulky rigid containers. Built in HD handle. Can be hung anywhere. I love to go camping with my son. We'll take off at the drop of a hat and spend 3-5 days in the Great Outdoors and between us have enough gear to almost consider it "glamping." We rabidly adhere to the Leave No Trace philosophy and often leave our campsites in better shape than when we arrived. So on… Full review

GSI Outdoors Water Cube

A cost- and weight-effective way to carry a lot of H2O, works well enough, but there is room for improvement. A few days ago my wife and I ran into a not-so-little problem. We were on the road and had pulled out of a long-planned hiking trip in the Colorado Rockies due to a nasty weather forecast. So we decided to divert to Canyonlands and see if we could put together a nice hike there. We went online to check availability of backcountry campsites in the Needles sector of the NP and, it being prime… Full review

Miir Howler

This double-insulated, 18/8 medical grade stainless steel growler (Miir describes its 64 oz. model as a growler and 32 oz. as howler, but it's the same construction) is phenomenal for maintaining cold temperature and carbonation. Miir claims both are maintained 24+ hours. I've not tested the limits of my Howler, but have observed temperature and carbonation maintained at 36 hours. While this growler may treat all liquids equal, my focus is solely on how it treats beer. I want the option of packing… Full review

Coleman Expandable Water Carrier - 5 Gallon

I used two Coleman Expandable Water Carriers (five gallon) to take with me on a camping trip in a conservation area where there was no sources of clean water, in August when it was extremely hot. I was really disappointed with the bags for several reasons. They are made of fairly thin plastic and "rolled around" in the back of my SUV while I was driving. They were difficult to fill with water at home and unwieldy when trying to carry or move them. They always rolled over onto the spigot no matter… Full review

Vapur Incognito Flexible Flask

Convenient, light, flexible, and covert way to carry drinks into the backcountry. Recommended for those looking for a way to bring adult beverages into the woods. I have used Vapur bottles in the past and enjoyed the opportunity to test a version of the bottles designed for adult beverages. Features I received two different Vapur bottles to test. One was the Vintage Flexible Wine Carrier and the other was this Incognito Flexible Flask. My review of the Flexible Wine Carrier can be found by clicking… Full review

Vapur Vintage Wine Carrier

Convenient, light, and flexible way to carry drinks into the backcountry. Recommended for anyone looking to bring some of the comforts of home into the woods. I have used Vapur bottles in the past and enjoyed the opportunity to test a version of the bottles designed for adult beverages. Features: I received two different Vapur bottles to test. One was this Vintage Flexible Wine Carrier and the other was the Incognito Flexible Flask. Both bottles came with a bottle pourer to help transfer wine… Full review
