I wore my brand new Marmot Precip Jacket in a light rain and the water went right through.
People relying on this jacket to keep them dry and thus warm in a cold mountain rain could die, because of blatantly FALSE ADVERTISING by unreliable, Marmot and retailers. I would like to know who is responsible?

I washed this MSR dromedary bag with dishwashing-liquid, and rinsed it very, thoroughly, repeatedly. I filled it with water. The bag left a bad, after-taste that stung the back of my throat, and lingered. The bag's innner-coating is leaching into the water. I felt the inside of the bag with my finger; it is a rough surface, meaning the inner-coating is so thin that it conforms to the rough outer fabric; suggesting it is a spray-on coating. It looks like a spray-on inner coating. Someone write the FDA.

Instead I bougt an insulated, Camelbak-brand "Unbottle"- 70-oz., and removed the bladder and inserted a Platypus-brand 2-liter, roll-up, bottle with screw-on top. So I could use it as an insulated canteen. I had to buy an inexpensive, insulated water-bottle holder ($10) to cut out a 3-inch-circle to sew over the space left by removing the Camelbak’s bladder. Required a little sewing. Works great. Kept my water cold in California-summer. Velcro opening.
