High Sierra Tokopah 6.0 hydration pack

High Sierra Tokopah 6.0 I will be reviewing the High Sierra Tokopah 6.0 hydrationpack for the next few months.  It features a 2 L reservoir and a handy place to store a helmet.  There is enough room in the pack for a rain jacket and other essential gear I might need on a bike ride or day hike.

Final Update: Mazama Windigo 3L bladder

Mazama Windigo 100L I have thorougly enjoyed using the Mazama Windigo 3L bladder.  It really shinned on a recent hiking trip on the Pinhoti Trail.  I found it not only easy to drink from but keeping it clean was a breeze. To read the rest of my thoughts please click here.

Update: Coros LINX helmet

The Coros Linx smart cycling helmet is working great.  I was a little skeptical at first but after using it for over 100 miles I find myself looking forward to using my helmet for a change.  The app part is also improved with a couple of much needed recent updates.  To read the rest of the update please click here.
