George's Bio

I love running -- trails or roads. I'm also a skiing junkie. With a work schedule where I only work 3 days a week (12 hour days), I get to play (or do jobs on my wife's Honey-Do list) for the other 4 days.

Despite that Backcountry doesn't sell anything for this, I also like flyfishing (especially with my Dad and son).

Slowly but surely, I'm also getting better at going shopping with my wife (I've stopped pulling out my hair).

This is my favorite water bottle. I like that I can take it on shorter trail runs and not have to take my eyes off of the trail when I want a drink. I can fill it with ice (using regular ice cubes from the freezer). I've never tried to freeze it, but considering that drinks freeze from the top of the liquid down, so unless you freeze the entire amount of liquid in the bottle, it should still be fine.

It blasts the perfect amount of drink into my mouth with a gentle draw and squeeze on the bottle. I couldn't be happier with this bottle.

The only thing that I don't like, is that someone at CamelBak told me in an email that they're discontinuing this bottle. It was in response to their selling the bottle with a bottle strap for use while running. They said that the strap and bottle combo will change to using the CamelBak Podium bottle, so hopefully the person from CamelBak just meant that the Performance bottle will only not be sold with the strap anymore, but will hopefully still be made and sold. If it's going to be discontinued, I'm going to buy several more.

This is without a doubt, the best traditional style of water bottle that I've ever owned. I also really like the CamelBak Performance bottle, since I don't have to tilt my head back to drink from it. I heard from CamelBak in an email that they're going to stop making the Performance bottle. This bottle (Podium) will still be around -- which is a good thing.

Son likes it so far.... He says that it's comfortable and that he likes it. By the end of the winter, I'll know how it withstands asphalt, cat claws, lighting hairspray on fire, 5th grade playgrounds and a wild, young skier/snowboarder.

Overall, it looks like a great jacket and I fully expect it to last a couple of years. It looks to be well made.
