    The threads on the model I had would fit on any "conventional" thread beverage bottle, so soda bottles of various sizes, Smart Water bottles, the Sawyer bags, etc would all work. I believe that is...

    I can unpack my Katahdin Hiker Pro and all its stuff, filter 2-3L of water and put it all away in 5-6 minutes at a comfortable pace. That is hardly much of a time penalty for safe drinking water....

    We wound up just going in from Watatic but I'll keep this in mind for the future. The trail I saw on CalTopo that I was hoping to take was apparently a bushwhack track. There was nothing where I...

    Their socks are awesome. I still own every pair I've ever bought and they show zero signs of wear, still stay up, etc. Not even a comparison to other sock brands I've tried like Smartwool, etc.
