Full disclosure, Matador Sent me some products to review, however, there were no special instructions on what to say or how to use this gear. As a traveler, photographer, and a person that has been known to jump off waterfalls whenever she runs into them.... I couldn't be more happy with all of these products! I'm sure you can imagine how useful they all are! Yes I have written on most of these products before, and that's because I really felt that they deserved their own post! This brand is a hikers best friend!
The filtration in the Matador Hydrolite Hydration Backpack is made by Sawyer. The great thing about this filtration is it takes out pretty much all of the bad bacteria. The In-line assembled Sawyer® MINI water filter removes 99.99999% bacteria + protozoa for up to 100,000 gallons of water. It removes things that can cause stomach irritation and serious infections. It takes out fecal coliform(E-coli), giardia, and Cryptosporidium. When you are drinking out of streams and rivers, these are the most common molecules that can harm you. So not only is the water pack perfect for festival travel, but for any traveling! If you are going to a foreign country and you’re not so sure about the water, just run it through this! Or if you’re outside on a hiking trail, you can drink easy out of streams you may find knowing that you have this filtration system on your back! Check out the slide show to see all the steps to put water in your pack!
The Beast28 backpack is one of my favorite hiking essentials for local adventures and exploring while traveling. What makes it a great travel pack is how compact it is. When traveling, You can easily attach it to your carry-on or additional backpack, or you can fit it in nicely into your luggage. You can see in the picture that it rolls up into a nice little pouch very easily...
Ever been out on an adventure and stumble across an unexpected body of water that you just had to take a dip in? I know I have! I also know that I don’t usually carry around a giant towel to dry off with after the spontaneous swim is over. However, I have found a solution! It’s a compact, light towel that is super absorbent!
