Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This thing is GREAT. I had a similar setup using a camelbak bottle and the hands free adapter for it but this one works better by eliminating the sippy lid and plastic straw.

You can turn any standard 63mm capped bottle into a hydration reservoir.

This works with Nalgene, Camelbak, Hydroflash and a few others. (klean canteens work but the lid will leak if tipped over).

A 48oz Nalgene bottle or a 40oz Hydroflask with this setup and I'm set.

I busted the cap on mine, totally my fault I think and I sent BCA an email asking if I could buy another since they are out of stock everywhere.

They said they no longer sell them but they had a few left in the warehouse and would send one right out to me.

I got an email an hour later with a tracking number.

You can't beat that.

Although the straps are very strong and secure if you want to ensure no tugging of the seams then try this. Wrap the rope around the whole bag and through the loops. This way the rope is holding the entire bag and not just the loops, but the loop keeps the rope from rolling off the bag. I have lots of these bags straps to my motorcycles this way and they hold fine at 80mph and I don't have to worry about the bags slipping.

Thanks Brandon, I figured they would be a bit short. I cannot seem to find any decently lightweight or at least small packing genuine stakes to use out there. I'm coming in on two wheels instead of an RV so carrying 2ft long pieces of rebar is out of the question. The closest thing I have found are NRS blue screws, they come in 12 and 22". They are for sand and soil, don't know how they would fare screwing into the playa. What did you use?
