A camp favorite!
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

We used this with a group of 5 for a 2 night backpacking trip. Water was from a low stream at both camps. We actually used a pump filter to transfer into this large 6Liter base camp filter. This allowed us to not disturb the water source creating a muddy mess. We benefited by making less trips to filter water and it was nice to have a large amount of "community water" for us to use in camp. Along the trail we had better water sources which allowed for a relaxing break as we loaded up on clean water.
I would definitely recommend this, especially for groups of 3 or more. You may still want a pump filter in your group if it's smaller water sources.

Great Minimalist vest
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I purchased this race for a supported 25+ mile trail race with major elevation change (for Pennsylvania). It worked great. Pockets were definitely small but with some planning they each had a purpose. I carried a 2L water bladder, one crushable water bottle for electrolytes and used the second water pocket for a couple gels and my salt tablets. Back middle pocket doesn't fit much- I only kept a small first aid kit.
I felt it was true to size. I'm 5'9" 175ish and the m/l was perfect. No chafing. That being said when removing from box it looked like it would not fit my 12 year old daughter.

I have used the Ultimate direction (SJ ultra vest 2.0) and liked that one better. But that vest is now an older model and twice as much.
