In preparation for a recent multi-day music festival, I looked at a bunch of lite pack styles. After considering a lumbar pack, I came across the classic Camelbak hydration pack and it met all of my criteria (pack size, bladder volume, weight support, etc.). I've heard nothing but good things from friends who have purchased the Camelbak brand packs so I decided to pull the trigger and buy it.

After attending the festival, I can honestly say that this was one of the best gear investments I've ever made. It is well made with durable materials and the design of the pack has a lot of great features such as a clip for mouthpiece in order to hold the tube in place, mini pocket in the front, breathable mesh straps to keep you cool and a handle on the bladder opening to keep the bag upright as you are filling it and reapplying the cap (thereby preventing spillage). It was the perfect capacity for the storage of my essentials (camera, granola bars, sunscreen and sunglasses case).

I easily recouped the value that this pack provides in that one festival weekend and I will be highly recommending this pack to my fellow festies from here on out.

I bought the ExOfficio Give-N-Go briefs for a trip to Europe after hearing/reading a number of positive recommendations. My goal was to pack as light as possible so I brought along 3 pairs of these briefs for my 2 week trip, washed them in hostel sinks at night and threw on a fresh pair the next day. This proved to be a successful strategy as these briefs dry in no time and they are very much odor and moisture resistant. Also, they are quite possible the most comfortable underwear I've ever owned. Now that I have returned from my trip, I am considering buying more for my regular wardrobe as cotton briefs just don't cut it anymore.

My first impression of the SmartWool PhD Running Ultra Light Micro Sock is that they were very comfortable, provided great arch support, wicked away perspiration and didn't smell after a long day of hiking. My only complaint is that after only two days of use, the sock material began to pill and wear.
