Perfect because it does what the advertisement says it will do. It holds enough water to reconstitute your freeze dried food, and your hot drink. Boil the water for both, pour whatever is needed for t...

Some people fish, fly kites, chat with their hiking mates, or mull over their route and equipment when they aren’t hiking. Some hike from dawn to dusk and have no time for such weighty pass times. If...
