Final Update High Sierra Tokopah 6.0

high sierra tokopa 6.0 The High Sierra Tokopah has been a faithful companion on all my bike rides save my recumbent which has a seat that wouldn’t allow me to wear the hydration pack.  So, I only rode the recumbent twice all summer. But that’s neither here nor there as far as how the test went.  To read the report including my final thoughts please click here.

High Sierra Tokopah 6.0 hydration pack update

I’ve been using the High Sierra Tokopah 6.0 hydration pack for a couple of months now and have liked having water available at anytime.  This is especially important when riding my bike or Elliptigo and much safer than reaching down for a water bottle IMHO.  I found some things I really liked about the pack and others I wasn’t so thrilled about but to find out read my update by clicking here.

Ultimate Direction Marathon Vest Back

One of my keys to running long distances is to make sure I have what I need close at hand.  There are many ways to accomplish this task from handheld water bottles to vests and backpacks.  I have several half marathons and full marathons coming up over the next couple months, and I will be using the Ultimate Direction Marathon Vest to make sure I have hydration and calories close at hand.  Read on for my initial thoughts on the Marathon vest.

Geigerrig Rig 1200 (camo) update

Getting a drink with the Rig 1200 on a mountainbike ride

Now that I have had the Geigerrig Rig 1200 a couple of months I have had several opportunities to use it doing various types of activities and it has performed great no matter what I was doing.  My favorite and most numerous uses have been while riding my bike.  I purposely skipped riding my recumbent during the past few months because I could not wear the Rig 1200 while riding it.  I also used it on a three day canoe trip and on several day hikes.

A lot of my outdoor activities are spontaineous. It is great to be able to take my Fairfax, quickly fill the reservoir with water, put a snack and a few essentials in the pockets, and be on my way in a few minutes.
