Final Update: Coros Linx smart cycling helmet

I was hoping to have a lot more miles under my belt (0r lid) before submitting my final update but alas, I discovered I am a fair weather rider. I did not ride any in December and since then I’ve only managed 6 rides. However, I continue to be impressed with the Coros Linx smart cycling helmet.  To read the rest of my final update please click here.

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.
