Anyone have experience with the SuYou Solar Charger

A Survey of Water Hazards and Water Treatment Methods - Part 6: Ultra-Violet Light Methods
As someone who was an early adopter into UV, I figured I should throw in my 2 cents as I've had nearly every mode of failure. Like most things, build quality is absolutely critical to havin...

Keeping water bottles on your shoulder straps
I use a metal clip that goes around the mouth of most soda / water bottles (the "disposable" type out of vending machines). That uses a microbiner to my pack strap. Just reach and pull an...

Hennessy Hyperlite Asym Zip Hammock Review
