MSR Trailshot Microfilter Water Filter

MSR Trailshot Microfilter Water Filter My Review

Light and easy

Super tiny and easy to bring everywhere. Not great for group use but really wonderful for long days and traveling light.

Outdoor Research Rocky Mountain Low Gaiters

Outdoor Research Rocky Mountain Low Gaiters My Review

Gaiters rule

I had put off getting gaiters for a long time, and when I finally bit the bullet, it was practically life changing. Would recommend.

Outdoor Research Ferrosi Pants - Women's

Outdoor Research Ferrosi Pants - Women's My Review

Obsessed

The ferrosi fabric is my absolute favorite thing. I have the pants, a skirt, and two pairs of shorts in different colors. It's water resistant, breathable, stretchy, and durable. To say that I love it is an understatement.


Questions I've Answered

Blair Z.  Blair Z.: Are these pants thick enough to wear on their own in the winter for hiking? Or do you suggest layering? And, are they waterproof?? Thanks!
Sara H.  Sara H.: I would layer if it's really cold, but down to like 30° I think they hold their own. They're water resistant, so eventually will be wet but for the most part it beads right off.

Andy H.  Andy H.: I recently received this as a birthday gift, but after reading a lot of less than stellar reviews, I'm thinking about exchanging it for a different water filter. Have you had any negative experiences with this one? If so, what would you recommend instead? And if not, how long have you had this one and how many times have you used it? Thanks!
Sara H.  Sara H.: It's not great for group use, but I love it for long trail runs and day hikes so I don't have to carry as much water with me.

If you usually do larger quantities of water at a time or go on longer trips with friends, the Platypus gravity works is a favorite. Really quick and low effort.
