Ultimate Direction Jurek Endure – Update

Ultimate Direction Jurek Endure – Update by Jason B

Ultimate Direction Jurek Endure

Bird Ridge Alaska

I have worn the Ultimate Direction Jurek Endure for a little over 100 miles of running over the past month and it has performed well over this time period.  Easily accessible water and the quick storage retrieval are definite bonuses to the belt, while bottle durability, and bib clip issues are my drawbacks.  Click Here to read the update!

Final Update: Camelbak Ultra LR Hydration Vest

sweaty after a run Since my last update I have continued to use the Camelbak Ultra LR several times a week, mostly for bike rides and for day hiking.  However, for the past week and a half I have actually used it more like it was designed to be used.  Yes, I have been running, but I should not be confused with a serious runner.  To read the rest of the update including the complete report please click here.

Geigerrig Rig 500

This hydration system doesn’t suck and I mean that literally.  Geigerrig has changed the way that that hydration systems work.  With a pressurized water bladder system, you don’t have to worry about having to constantly suck on the nozzle to get the water that you need like in traditional water hydration systems.  Check out my review here on the Geigerrig Rig 500 pack and “Hydration Engine” to see just why this hydration system doesn’t suck!

Staying hydrated with the CamelBak Fourteener

Camelbak Fourteener

Camelbak Fourteener

The first pack that I ever bought when I started seriously hiking about five years ago was a Camelbak. I found it locally, liked that it came with a water bladder, and it fit within my poor college student budget. Well, I’ve grown up, but my taste in packs is still with Camelbak, especially with their CamelBak® Fourteener, which they sent me to review. The improvements in the basic overall design of the CamelBak® Fourteener versus my old Camelbak are really noticeable and had definitely resulted in a pack that I’d buy even if it didn’t come with their newly redesigned bladder. I recently took the CamelBak® Fourteener up Pleasant Mountain, a local peak where I got my first winter hike in a couple years ago, with my husband and dog.
