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.

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.

Camelbak Fairfax Hydration Pack

The Camelbak Fairfax hydration pack is ultra lightweight and mainly designed to be used by cyclists. I will be using it mostly for hikes shorter than 2 hours. The pack comes in a choice of 4 dual colors, and the pack I have is Dark Cheddar/Graphite. The hydration bladder has a capacity of about 1.5 L (50 oz), and has a dual port so the hydration tube can exit either on the right or left side. The shoulder straps have loops to dress the hydration tube, and a breast strap which can be adjusted horizontally as well as vertically.
