When a normal water bottle just won't quench your thirst, you need to bust out the big guns, aka the growler. But, but, a growler is just too big for my cage?! Well, that's where the Outpost cage steps it up to the plate. Just strap that puppy on it, and you're good to go!

Whether it's hauling extra water, or my favorite, beer, this cage will do it, and do it with ease I say.

Going camping? Haul whatev' you need in this cage as long as it's under 8.8lbs. Heck, I am thinking about adding a second one, cuz you know, 64oz. of beer ain't that much after all is said and done.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 140 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

Autumn is finally here, and I figured I'd get one of these snappers for my better half. She's a tough one to buy for, since she's somewhat on the lank side of things.

Like others have stated, this thing runs big and baggy, so it might be wise to try it out in two sizes to find your best fit. Size wise, she was torn between the small (for a better fitting waist) and the medium, which provided added arm and torso length. In the end, she decided to go with the medium, because you know, sufficient limb coverage is all the rage!

Her measurements are posted above.

We picked one of these up for all the great laughs it provides us at the campsite. Seriously, hours of enjoyment/mayhem will ensue upon purchasing one of these things! We have the 85 footer; however, we'd prolly would have been better off with the 50 foot version instead. We found some trees that stretched it out about 75'ish or so feet (which seemed suuuuuuper long by the way), but you've really gotta lasso it up higher around the trees so it doesn't touch in the middle when walking on it. Furthermore, if you've imbibed a little, standing up 4.5 feet high can feel quite staggering to say the least! No joke!

If you've got extreme core strength/balance, get the 85 footer, if not, the 50 footer should be totally sufficient for all your needs.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I just replaced my m771 cassette the other day that had around 2200 miles on it. I bet I could have easily hit 3k on it, but alas, I am converting to a new 1x setup. Since I am making the conversion, I thought I would replace pretty much all of my drivetrain. Right now, my bike is all XT, so I figured I would stick with that since I've had great luck with it.

In addition to the new cassette, I've even added a new Wolf Tooth GC (42t) for making climbs easier since I am losing my granny on my old 2x setup.

If XT is a bit too rich for your blood, essentially, you can always snag the HG81 (SLX series) for a tad less; however, your middle cogs will be riveted together unlike the m771 version.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought into the hype that this 16 toother was really going to make a difference when shifting, and honestly, I don't think it makes much of a difference at all. Normally, when I am up-shifting, I'll push through 2-4 gears at a time. In fact, my shifts between the 13-19t cogs never really experience any "hanging," and nothing seems to take longer than it should; pretty much flawless to say the least. Anyhow, like I said, I kinda got sucked into the hype after reading reviews about this cog; however, shifting pretty much feels exactly the same when using the standard 15t my cassette came with.

Maybe you can tell the difference, but I surely can't.

Make sure your bolts are short enough if you're converting from a triple ring to a 1x front, if they're not, then these short bolts will instantly do the trick. As Statenheimer below states, they are a bit pricey for what they are, but hey, they come in a handful of colors! Sure, there are tab spacers out there, but those just look funky. Get these bolts, and you'll be happy.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

We're starting to get a bit more into climbing and figured it was time to up our game. Normally, we just rent a bag or bum some off people, but this time, we wanted to have our own supply. I am not sure what brand or kind the gym we go to uses, but this stuff definitely keeps our hands drier.
