Way better than Camelback bladders! My MSR Miniworks water filter screws onto it making water purification a whole lot easier (camelback does not have this feature)! Not to mention the screw off lid is easier to unscrew, as opposed to Camelback bladders where you have to practically give yourself a hernia to unscrew the lids. I will be using MSR equipment from now on.

This is the first down bag that I have owned, and it is a sweet one! Off the recommendation from backpacker magazine I decided to buy it because of it's supreme waterproofing. I threw a handful of water on top of it after receiving it and let it sit for 10 minutes. Not even a drop of water soaked in! I was amazed! It is so lightweight that sometimes I feel like I might break the thing, but it keeps surprising me with it's durability. I do find several feathers that clinched their freedom in my tent, but there were no more than I could count on my two hands so it is nothing to worry about.
I decided to use a liner with it mostly because I want to take good care of it, and also because I sleep very very warm. I got into the sleeping bag in my basement after receiving it and started sweating about 5 minutes later, so there is no doubt in my mind that it will keep me very warm during a cold night. My bigger problem with it was that my sweating body stuck to the material of the bag and made it somewhat unpleasant. The sleeping bag liner cleared this up quite nicely though, and I have never slept better in any other sleeping bag than this one! Also, the liner seemed to help wick my body heat and keep my dry but warm, a very important thing in cold temps. I am planning on using this bag to go backpacking in Colorado and the Badlands in South Dakota this fall and I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

I got two #3's and they are about 2.5 inches in length and about 1 inch in width (which seemed a little big for keys, but not by much). It says says right on it that it can hold up to 25 pounds too. I plan on getting some of the other sizes very soon. Very sturdy and simple construction, they won't break very easily! Very Handy!
