I am very passionate about being outdoors hiking and camping. I go almost every weekend and put my gear to the test. I love seeing if things are truly as good as the company says it is.
Osprey Hydraulics Reservoir 3L Water Bottle
This hydration pack works great! I can add a water filter into the hose if I need to filter the water I’m drinking. If it is freezing out I can switch to an insulated hose or just blow back my water into the bladder. No problems with freezing . Fits perfectly into all my packs that I use.
Nalgene Wide-Mouth Water Bottle - 32 fl. oz.
I take this with me everywhere. It is perfect too put filtered water into. No plastic taste coming from the bottle. Can heat up water and put it in your sleeping bag to heat it up. The bottle can take the heat.
Mountain House Pasta Primavera
This is one of my favorite meals to take backpacking with me. Delicious and filling.
Kahtoola MICROspikes Traction System
Don’t waste your time or money using other spikes. These are hands down the best for their price.
Sawyer MINI Water Filter
I use to have this water filter. It was my started one. It works fine but I much prefer my befree
Hydro Flask 32 oz Wide Mouth
I have several different hydoflask products. They all work awesome keeping my hot stuff hot for many hours and my cold things cold. Highly recommend them to friends.
Sea to Summit Aeros Pillow Premium
Aero premium pillow
I absolutely love my pillow. It is super lightweight and easy to blow up to be comfortable. It fits in the hood of my mummy bag perfectly.
Salomon X Ultra 3 Mid GTX Hiking Boots
I absolutely love my boots. I had a pair that had a defect and Salomon replaced them no problem. They are a great company and stand behind their products. My new boots work awesome in any weather and when tromping in waterfalls and streams. They fit perfect and never get blisters or sores.
Mountain House Raspberry Crumble Can
Mountain house dessert
I was not super happy with this one. I expected more crumble in it. It cooked up and tasted like hot jam with Oreos in them. A few bites was good. The flavor was good it was just missing the crumble part.
Mountain House Noodles & Chicken
This is one of my favorite dinners to have. Always good flavored and tasty comfort food.
Mountain House Scrambled Eggs with Bacon
This breakfast gives you great energy and lots of protein to start the day. Tastes great and rehydrates very well.
FRONTIERSMAN Insider Bear Safe
I really like the shape of the canister! However it is very tall and heavy. It only comes In one size. It has enough space to go backpacking for many days. Could be good for long trips that you have no food caches. It is tall enough it makes a good seat so if you aren’t packing a chair you have a spot to sit.
Jetboil Mini Mo Cooking System
This is probably my favorite piece of gear I own. I take it on almost every adventure. It boils water super fast at any altitude. Easy to convert to cook on with a pan.
