Watershed Animas 40L Backpack

Watershed Animas 40L backpack I will be testing the Watershed Animas 40L in as many ways as possible over the next few months. As an avid hiker, cyclist, and kayaker I should find a few different ways to put it through the paces. I hope to establish how it works for each activity and most importantly, will it keep my gear dry.  It is a dry bag after all.  To read my initial thoughts and get a good overview of the Animas please click here.

I have thoroughly enjoyed testing the MSR Pocket Rocket Deluxe stove kit.  I guess no stove is perfect but this one comes really close.  If only it would clean up the dishes after cooking…  Seriously though, this stove is a winner!  You can click here to read my thoughts as I conclude my testing of the stove and included cook set.

Hiker Hunger Outfitters Hammock Set

Hiker Hunger Outfitters hammock set Follow along as I review the Hiker Hunger Outfitters Hammock Set which consists of an 11 foot hammock along with the needed carabiners and a set of tree friendly straps.  And all for a very reasonable price of around $40.   I have already slept in the hammock for one night and was very pleased with how comfortable it was.  Of course I added my own insulation and tarp as the set alone doesn’t have everything needed for a night in the wild.  I eventually plan to add a bug net to make it a formidable overnight hammock in the deep southern woods I frequent.  To read more on my initial thoughts please click here.
