The Bootlegger keeps 1.5 liters of water tucked away under your jacket with the ultimate low-profile design. It’s a cold-weather version of a hydration vest, with extra-light, breathable materials and two sternum straps for a secure, bounce-free fit, plus an insulated drink tube to keep your water from freezing in cold temperatures.
Ultralight and minimalist campers and day trippers are becoming more and more common and people get in touch with the outdoors as they really are. One of the best packs available for hauling in just enough stuff to make it worth it without overloading yourself, the REI Flash 18 is an ultralight’s best friend in the backpack world.
The best in the business as far as hydrations packs go, CamelBak has hit it out of the park yet again with their M.U.L.E hydration system. Simple and straightforward, it gives you hands free access to water whenever you need it and stays out of the way whenever you don’t.
Comfortable and well designed, you shouldn’t let the oversized appearance of the Arc’teryx Altra scare you off. A world class outdoor backpack if there ever was one, this is the kind of rig you can count on for those longer trips with bigger payloads. Smartly designed and durable as anything else on the market, this is the kind of bag you can trust with your equipment and tools, as well as your hard earned money.
