October 3, 2012

I love triathlon training, but every now and then I get a little sick of doing lunges in the same stinky gym with the same stinky people. I like to get out and remind myself why I do all those lunges. So, I decided that before winter crept in, and while the canyon trees are on fire with fall colors, it was time to bag Mt. Timpanogos (elevation 11,749).

While the Sirrus 36 has enough space for a light over-nighter, it was the perfect selection for an all-day hike like Mt. Timp. Starting the hike in the dark meant that all those layers would have to be stowed away later in the day. Even with hydration, food and necessary extras already packed, there was plenty of room for my down jacket, gloves, beanie etc. when the sun found it’s way to my side of the mountain. The top pocket was great for easy access to stow my headlamp, camera and extra water bottles/snacks were easily accessed from the side mesh pockets while hiking.

While I currently have no need for the ice tool attachment, it’s certainly something that will come in handy for ice-climbing season in the near future (pray for snow). Until then, it’s always handy to have extra loops. This pack, however, does not feature a crampon specific pocket with reinforced materials, so keep that in mind if your looking for something specific to ice-climbing.

TriEdge – Featuring Viper 4 – July 11, 2011

July 19, 2011

I love the dry heat of Utah. I’d rather live here than pretty much anywhere else. Even during the 95°-105° month of July. The only problem is that I sweat and get dehydrated really fast in this heat, especially if I’m working hard on my training. For that matter, even in my recreation. I’ve used hydration packs for years when I go mountain biking and have recently started using them when hiking and backpacking as well. There is something sublime about not having to reach for your water bottle from your pack, either by stopping to remove it or forcing your elbow into some sort of double jointed action to remove a bottle from a pack pocket. You say you just hold your bottle when you run, that’s fine, but for me I don’t really like it. We’ve had the chance to test out a few hydration packs here at Triedge over the past few months. Below are three of our favorites.
