This bottle is the standard that all other water bottles are held to. No leaks and doesn't give you a funny taste in the water. The wide mouth for the 32 oz is especially nice on hot days when you just want to guzzle it quick and splash some on yourself to cool off. I dropped this thing on the concrete the moment I got it out of the box. I didn't care because why? Because its made of copolyester!!!

I purchased the M/L 3600cu inch pack. To start, I will say the amount of pockets is an impressive feature. There is a built in pocket for your rain cover. A water reservoir pocket that can accommodate a 3 liter camelbak (although if you have a larger weight load the weight will generally apply pressure to the camelbak and force water out from the mouth piece, due to the pocket being located right on your back behind the AirScape back panel. The best way to solve this is to get the CamelBak Ergo Hydrolock). This pack also includes two hip-belt pockets.

The size of my pack is certainly more than enough for a long 5 day hike on the Appalachian Trail. I can easily fit a compressed summer sleeping bag, 5 days of food, a change of clothing, water bottles, 32 oz nalgene bottle, 5lb 2 person tent, boots, maglite and multitool and zippo, climbing shoes, sleeping pad, stainless steel bowl with fork, spoon and knife a canister stove and toiletries all while feeling comfortable due to the virtually customizable and adjustable torso. Just remember though, it's not necessarily the amount of space in your pack, it's about how you pack it.
