You can also get caps that have smaller screw caps on the top. Such an upgrade from the normal ones if you hate the huge drinking hole like I do.

Here's the one that I purchased.

u/strocknar · 52 pointsr/EDC

Maxpedition individual first aid pouch

zipper pocket:

u/FellofHearts · 34 pointsr/atheism

Wow! Caps still sealed! It must be a miracle, because we all know an unbroken shitty water bottle cap seal means it has never been opened.

u/tsunami643 · 32 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

You wanted this one too, didn't you.

Great find regardless, OP.

u/meltmyface · 24 pointsr/Fitness

I offer my liquid grip to people fairly often. It is not expensive.

This bottle should last you about a year.

u/Holy_BatLogic · 14 pointsr/onebagging
  1. Huarache sandals. Runners and shower shoes and passable with a dress, all in one lightweight and compact package. Add wool toe socks in cold weather for an extremely fashionable 4-season look.
  2. Evernew 2L Water Carry and Sawyer Squeeze filter. Enough storage capacity for most backpacking trips, and surprisingly durable and effective for 124g combined.
  3. Vargo Titanium BOT 700 + neoprene cozy. Useful as a pot, water bottle, travel mug, or small item storage. It's nice when my backpacking gear isn't just dead weight.
  4. Montbell Breeze Dry-Tec Sleeping Bag Cover. It's a basic waterproof-breathable bivy that actually performs, and allows me to have a full summer sleep system (bivy, quilt, air mattress) in a tiny package that weighs only 1.46lbs.
  5. Aeropress + Porlex Mini grinder. Good coffee is worth it.
  6. This hair brush/comb that came in a business class care package. Only 12 grams! I continue to be smitten by it.
  7. Silk dress shirt. Lightweight classiness that doesn't get wrinkled.
  8. Prana Halle Pants. Heavy, but I feel like I can do anything in these pants.
  9. Peak Design Everyday Sling. Fits my mirrorless camera set-up and a Surface Pro in a decently small package.
  10. Penny board. Great for cruising around town when you don't want to deal with a bike.

A lot of people will just use water bottles (like Smartwater). I carry a 2L Evernew bag that I mostly use to just fill my 1L Smartwater, since water is easy to come by in the Northeast. It's nice knowing I could carry up to 3 even if I never will need to, and the 2L Evernew weighs 1.5oz so it's worth it IMO.

Also the Evernew bags fit the Sawyer perfectly. Apparently the Platy bags people used to get no longer make a watertight seal with the Sawyer.

u/Barricade73 · 13 pointsr/Fitness

RockGuardsII: Helps a lot with deadlifts not skinning my shins anymore. It has a little compression, but it's mainly to make sure I'm not bleeding on the bar.

Liquid Grip: For some reason my gym doesn't allow normal chalk, but they're ok with this, works well enough.

New Balance Minimus: Big fan of these as far as minimal sloe shoes go, comfortable and durable.

I've thought about picking up a belt, but I don't think I've progressed that far yet.

u/mdelemdele · 12 pointsr/Ultralight

These are great. Had mine for several years. No issues at all.

EVERNEW Water Carry System, 2000ml

u/GrannysBourbonHabit · 12 pointsr/environment
u/Morbanth · 11 pointsr/worldnews

Most people can't fit enough water in their flats (especially for us urban dwellers) so I recommend getting some kind of water filtration system. Even a simple Lifesaver bottle can produce enough clean water for a family to get through a couple of weeks with no utilities.

u/MIDItheKID · 11 pointsr/howto

Hell, these ones straight up advertise it.

u/Tm0ney561 · 10 pointsr/electricdaisycarnival

im a big dude so this (used to be) is a common problem for me. i now swear by this, it works so well. i literally bought a stick for everyone in my rave family.

Body Glide

u/notickynolaundry · 9 pointsr/onebag

I haven't gone full hose and bladder but I'm a big fan of the Platypus for its packability. Nice to unroll it after airport security and fill it up at a water fountain.

u/zchlan · 9 pointsr/EDC

Here's a list of my usual EDC:

u/MulberryStreetHippie · 9 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Upon recommendations from this subreddit I bought a 32-oz Nalgene Tritan (Amazon link).

Love it.

u/zhige · 9 pointsr/bicycling

At first I thought it was just this.

u/yeeaaapppp · 8 pointsr/AppalachianTrail

I use something like Bodyglide. The key is the paraffin. It doesn't last all day, but a few applications a day helps where it counts.

EDIT: It also doesn't sting like some if you are already chaffed. If you ARE already chaffed, get some A&D cream for the end of the day. If you can wash your sensitive areas, do so. Otherwise do what you can to keep them clean and dry as possible.

u/rootb33r · 8 pointsr/malefashionadvice

It's a Timex Weekender. About 1000000x less expensive than a Rolex.

The straps you buy separately (there are tons of sellers) and you can change them very easily (I do it almost daily).

u/ihaveplansthatday · 8 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Kanteen - $22.94

Skirt - $19.24

Necklace - $12.67

Cat bed! - $10.29

Stockings - $7.94



All from Highest Priority list.

u/crispyscone · 7 pointsr/EDC

A few things I would probably get.

  • Flash light always comes in handy. I noticed you didn't say anything about one. I streamlight is a great brand with nice seemingly durable lights. You will probably lose it before it shits out on you or breaks. I prefer the stylus pro or the microstream (difference between the two is microstream is shorter. It's penlight size makes it easy to slip in and out of your pocket.

  • Always carry a good pen. Zebra makes decent pens. If you want to stretch your gift card further, you could get the f301 but I really prefer the f701, it's just a nicer pen. There is also the space pen if you ever feel you need to write something in zero gravity. If "tactical pens" are more your thing, you have plenty to choose from

  • saw you were looking at a cheapo fixed blade. If you were to get any "cheapo" fixed blade at all, seriously consider mora. You can read more about mora in this post, but I assure you that you will not find a better fixed blade for the price.

  • You have anything to carry your beverages in? Nalgene bottle or camelbak for water, thermos for hot beverages.

  • Get you a nice rum cake or whiskey fudge
u/grae313 · 7 pointsr/xxfitness

Liquid chalk is a game changer

u/MadtownMaven · 7 pointsr/xxfitness

I highly recommend picking up a stick of Bodyglide and put that on your feet before wearing any sandals, heels, flats, or other shoes that would give you blisters or red marks. It works fabulously for preventing them. And a stick will last you like a year. It goes on clear and I've never had it leave any marks on any of my shoes of various materials.

u/angelfish2222 · 7 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Whats the reasoning behind wearing shorts? Is it to protect your modesty in case a gust of wind blows your skirt/dress up, or is it to prevent 'chub rub'?

If it's the chub rub, I'm a convert to the Body Glide brigade. I used to wear shorts, but in hot weather they simply made me hotter & they'd keep riding up as I walked. I use body glide instead now, I apply it 2-3 times a day and it stops the painful bumps & I stay cool. It also lasts ages!

If, however, the shorts are for modesty reasons, I can't say I know of any light coloured or nude bike shorts. I used to wear black Nike cycling shorts under my dresses, they were made of the dri-fit stuff and were ok but did eventually ride up a bit during walking, or you could cut the legs off of a pair of tights (but they tend to ride up pretty fast too.) There are plenty of under-dress solutions out there, but I can't find any made out of cotton.

u/drm390 · 7 pointsr/running

I started running in April of this year, but here is the gear I have been running with so far:

u/amichaux · 7 pointsr/EDC

Timex Weekender. Damn nice watch for only $30.

u/pointblankjustice · 7 pointsr/bugout

I mean no disrespect, but I also tend to be rather blunt: There is a lot of work that needs to be done to this bag. It seems really thrown together, out of an amalgamation of random stuff that's vaguely "outdoorsy".

Firstly, the bag itself. There's probably a reason it was in the trash, and my suspicion is that it wasn't because it was well built, durable, and comfortable. Good bags can be had for not much money and there are definitely used options on Craigslist and at outdoor store garage sales if you're on a shoestring budget. Your bag has to be able to take the abuse of multiple days and many miles of rucking.

FOUR knives? And they are all folders to boot? And you're trying to tell me this isn't "bloated"? Come on. Get one good multitool like a Leatherman, or keep the Gerber if you must (you don't need 87 bits for your Gerber in the woods, either). Maaaybe carry a fixed blade, too, if you really think you'll be needing it.

Mess kit: That looks bulky as hell, and aluminum has an incredibly low melting point (something like ~1200F) which is easily attainable in a mature fire. Hello melted mess kit. If you are really just bugging out you shouldn't need to cook anything. Calorie dense food bars, jerky, nuts etc. should be sufficient. Get a super small mess kit like this amazing one from GSI Outdoor and use this very cheap but decent backpacking stove and you have a lightweight, highly functional way to cook, boil water, and drink for under $25.

Blade sharpener? If you somehow manage to dull all four of your knives in a few days you're doing something wrong. Save the blade sharpener for the Zombies-Are-Attacking INCH bag or whatever.

Sunscreen and bug repellent are both great. that said, you are carrying almost as much sunscreen as you are water. Embellishing, of course, but that's a fucking lot of sunscreen.

I would also seriously work on flushing out that medical kit. If you don't have much first aid training, that's fine (though you should get some) but a basic boo-boo kit will be really functional. Gauze, small band-aids, some medium sized non-stick pads, alcohol wipes, burn cream and/or antibiotic cream, tweezers, rubber gloves, pain relievers, anti-diarrheals, generic antihistamines (for regular allergies and allergic reactions), etc. etc. Avoid pre-built medical kits and avoid things you don't know how to use.

The MSR filter is actually fantastic, can't fault you there. That said, something like a Sawyer Mini would be a fair bit lighter, and has integral water storage should you need more.

Metal water bottle: Looks like a thermos, which is great for keeping your coffee warm on the way to work but is single-use and heavy in the backwoods. I'd suggest changing it out for a widemouth single-walled metal container like those from Klean Kanteen because now not only do you have a way to store water, but you also have a way to boil it! And you can cook in it if absolutely necessary. And you can fill it up with hot water and add it to your sleeping bag to stay warm.

Wait...where is your sleeping bag? I know you mentioned having some miscellaneous camping gear in your car, but what if you need to abandon your car? Look at even a simple bivy sack like this one from SOL. Coupled with a lightweight tarp and you have a functional survival sleep system. Throw in a small inflatable pad for insulation from the ground and you can survive in all but the most inclement of weather.

Lose the rat traps and 200(!!!) fishing hooks in exchange for calorie dense food bars and other foods that need little or no preparation. Try to stay above 130 calories/gram and pay attention to things that are high in protein, fiber, and fat. You're bugging out, remember? Not sitting around camp all day with a cold one and your rod in the lake.

Substitute your few cheap (read: heavy and unreliable) flashlights for one good one. Something like a Four Sevens Quark AA2 or something from Fenix, Nitecore, or Olight. It will be reliable, well built, and powered by an efficient driver to produce multiple modes of light and provide for good run time. Get something that takes standard AA or AAA batteries. Avoid CR123As.

Noticeably lacking are things like a map and firestarters. You mentioned a ferrocerium rod. Instead of spending $7.00 on a decent one of those, get three BIC lighters and a pack of waterproof matches in a container. And save a couple bucks in the process. Ever started a fire with a ferro rod? It sucks. I've done it. I do it for fun and honing my skills occasionally. But a simple ass BIC will work 100 times better in almost any situation.

Add a high quality, water resistant topographical map of your region. Do you know how to use that compass? I'm not talking about pointing it north, but for things like triangulation or magnetic declination or navigating to a point on your map by finding a bearing. There are tons of Youtube videos out there that will help you in understanding these techniques if you don't already. A compass by itself is near useless.

How about things that you're more likely to encounter?

Throw in a charger for your phone, or maybe one of those $5 burner flip phones and a $10 minutes card in case yours dies. Take the battery out (should be removable on a cheap pay-as-you-go bog standard phone) and write important numbers on the inside.

How about wiping your ass? Go to your nearest Walmart and hit the toiletries section. You'll find bins of $1.00 miniature travel accessories. I'd recommend a toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant bar, personal wet wipes (preferably biodegradable), Chapstick, and some baby powder or Gold Bond. Throw it all in a gallon Ziplock or a small pouch. Now you can survive in the woods AND survive overnight a friend's house after you get too drunk and can't drive.

I see nothing for cold weather gear. I know it's summer but depending on where you are night time can still be cold as hell. Add a beanie, wool gloves, a fleece underlayer, a poncho or rainproof hard shell jacket, and a change of GOOD wool socks.

Lose the 9 million feet of paracord. 50ft should be plenty sufficient (if that) especially considering the inner strands are strong enough for most applications.

I think that covers all my major gripes. Back to drinking and being an ass.

u/tomcatHoly · 7 pointsr/Bushcraft

Nalgene 38oz Guyot designs, with a nice flat bottom. Amazon Canada, $76 (stupid!),
Amazon US, $30

Kleen Kanteen 40oz, Amazon Canada, $70 (just slightly less stupid!),
Amazon US, $23

There's the best of the best options. Try not to live in Canada for the best deal.

u/mortaine · 6 pointsr/C25K

Body glide is the best for this. I've used it for long and short runs, even a marathon-- if you run for more than an hour at a time, you'll find other areas that chafe, and you'll find yourself putting it on nipples, bra bands (if female), waistbands, and the bottoms of your feet (to prevent blisters!) GREAT stuff, and it does work.

You can substitute with stick deodorant in a pinch, but it's not as effective as bodyglide.

u/FishermanHS · 6 pointsr/pokemongo

Hey if you're trying to get into running....I HIGHLY recommend getting into trail running instead of road running. Running on the trails is SOOOOO much more fun! Seriously. I switched to trail running from road running about a year and a half ago and I haven't hit the pavement since (unless I have to in order to get to the next trail :P ) .

Either way though, good for you OP! The best parts of this game IMO are that it forces people to be active even if they didn't used to be very active, AND you get to meet cool random people who also enjoy Pokemon which forces anti-social people to break out of their shell.

Stay focused on just walking/running more and more and you'll start shredding the weight. Doind 5k's and 10k's is definitely a great way to stay motivated, especially if you get friends to sign up with you. You can all train (running & Pokemon) together and keep each other motivated!

SIDE NOTE: Not sure if you're having problems with chafing or not (happens quite often with overweight people or people that just have bigger thighs) but THIS STUFF works wonders to prevent the chafing. I'm not a super big guy but when I first started getting into trail running I was having problems with chafing and a more experienced friend recommended this stuff. Also, cotton boxers/briefs will wreck you. Highly recommend investing in some nice compression shorts and/or other underwear that's geared towards running.

u/ckb614 · 6 pointsr/running

The more often you run, the better your body will adapt to the stress, but you do have to build up slowly so your body can prepare itself for an increase in pounding. For someone at your weight, running is very high risk exercise, but your experience in other sports has probably strengthened your bones and joints a bit. Just listen to your body and back off if something hurts that shouldn't. Cycling is a much safer way to exercise, so you can work that in if your knees or shins ever hurt. As for chaffing, you're looking for Body Glide

u/masterprtzl · 6 pointsr/magicTCG

I love this binder and am actually considering getting a second one. There is a smaller version that is great for holding play sets of shocks / buddies etc. Very high quality binder imo and I have had 0 issues with ripping or tearing of the sleeves.

I believe a Weekender has a 20mm band width.

Does anyone know whether a 19mm or 18mm band would look strange on a 20mm width watch?

u/zirman · 6 pointsr/france

J'en parle ici des fois que ça vous intéresse :)

Ca fait un moment que l’histoire de l'eau et du problème posé par le plastique me préoccupe. Du coup ça fait plusieurs années maintenant que je me balade avec ceci dans mon sac. C'est une gourde en inox de la marque Klean Kanteen, et à aucun moment l'eau n'est en contact avec le plastique, y compris au niveau du bouchon. Elle me sert également quand je suis à la muscu. En gros depuis que je l'ai j'ai drastiquement diminué mon stock de bouteille. Les seules bouteilles qu'il peut me rester c'est quand j'ai envie de coca, on vit tous avec nos paradoxe ^^

Mais je sais pas si c'est psychologique ou quoi, mais d'avoir un récipient en métal change vraiment le gout de l'eau je trouve. Quand je pars en rando je peux également la mettre sur un réchau quand j'ai besoin de faire bouillir de l'eau :)
J'en ai une deuxième moins grosse, proche de mon lit pour les grosses soifs nocturne ^^

Ça fait peut être petit délire de bobo, mais je n'y vois que des avantages au bout du compte !

A savoir pour trouver de l’eau partout où vous allez, il existe une base de données open qui s’appelle Eaupen et qui référence tous les points d’eau potable. Pratique pour remplir sa gourde.

u/kendallpark · 6 pointsr/medicalschool

I'm not a 3rd year, but I can share a few things that work well for me which I think are 3rd year compatibile.

  1. Study while exercising. I kid you not, my most focused, uninterrupted study times were always during exercise. There are two ways I managed to pull this off. First, I bought this so I could listen to lectures on my smartphone while riding my bike (on a secluded bike-only trail in the middle of nowhere, NOT a road or congested trail.) Second, I brought my iPad to the gym, hopped on a treadmill, and would walk + Anki or walk + QBank or walk + watch lectures. You're a captive audience in these settings (with less ability to dick around on Facebook, Reddit, etc) so it's easier to focus. It's also active so you're not at as huge a risk of falling asleep.

  2. Anki. I wish I had discovered this earlier. The most consistently I've ever studied is flipping though Anki cards. That's something that can easily be reviewed during odd hours without needing to seclude yourself and focus. Yeah, it's mindless memorization, but you'll find your brain starts connecting all these factoids on its own. And LBVS, most of med school is memorization.

  3. Remember that something is better than nothing. I personally struggle with wasting time trying to optimize my studying so that its hyper-efficient and super-comprehensive. It's good to remember at the end of the day, reading a few pages of a textbook is better than throwing your hands up because you don't have the time to do 100% optimal studying.

  4. FWIW I use a Trello board to organize tasks, set goals, make a loose schedule, etc. It's helpful to zoom out and take a broad overview of what you have already done and what still needs to accomplished.

  5. Block distractions.
u/Blitzsturm · 6 pointsr/Advice
  • Call your credit/debit card issuer ahead of time and let them know you'll be traveling to specific areas and ask what their exchange rate fees are. Often you can use your card about anywhere but pay an extra 3% for the exchange to different currencies.
  • Depending on airline, "Check in" online up to 24 hours before your flight. You'll often have an option to see and change your seat.
  • If you can get an isle seat for more leg room or a window seat for a better view and something to lean against. The middle seats are universally terrible. If this is your first time flying I'd say try to get a window seat, you'll love the view.
  • Show up early to every flight. At least 2-3 hours.
  • Most flights board 30-60 minutes before the takeoff time so be at every gate early.
  • Know all your connecting flights and get to the terminal as soon as you can. It may help to write down and have a list of the takeoff times and destinations. If you know exactly where to be feel free to wonder around the terminal shops and see what's available to buy.
  • Wear comfortable clothing and consider having something long-sleeve or a sweater. Many plans have the air-conditioning cranked and it can get a bit cold.
  • If the flight is 6+ hours try to get some sleep on the plane. It's not easy. If your of age ask for wine from the drink cart (or have some overpriced drinks in the terminal before takeoff), put on a movie and see if you can drift off to sleep.
  • Don't cary any fluids on you, you'll have to give them up at security checks. Always have your passport and boarding pass ready to go at every checkpoint.
  • You should always be provided drinks on flights, but carry an empty bottle to top off at water fountains before boarding flights. You'll want to stay hydrated
  • Depending on where you land, if it's not considered a "first wold country" DON'T DRINK THE WATER or eat anything washed in the water (most fruit's and vegetables if they are cut). Maybe grab this bottle or one like it to drink out of. If you do eat or drink the wrong thing you'll get Traveler's Diarrhea. If that happens you'll want to have some Imodium on you to counteract the symptoms. Also consider carrying pepto bismol to deal with any upset stomach issues that may come up from the local food. In general stick to bottled or self-filtered water and well cooked food. If you come from an area that doesn't have a well developed water treatment system, you may already be immune to this.
  • Make sure you have a contact at your destination to pick you up and have a well understood plan. If you have an unlocked mobile phone try grab a local prepaid SIM Card for your phone to get phone service. In many countries you can buy them in or near the airport. Also many airports have WiFi so things like Google Voice work great there.

What price range are you looking for? Do your parents generally spend over $100 on your for gifts?


Here are some basic ideas:

  1. Headlamp:
  2. Stove:
  3. Pot:
  4. First Aid Kit:
  5. Spoon:
  6. Sleeping Pad:
  7. Water Filter:
  8. Water Bladder 1:

  14. Socks:
  15. Buff:

    You could also add basic stuff like batteries, lighters, power bars, trash bags, first aid supplies and other consumables.


    Other items are harder to pick without know more details...

  • Tent - do you want to sleep in that hammock, or want a tent too?
  • Sleeping bag - 30F or 40F bag may be goo enough for Texas 3-seasons?
  • Backpack - want to keep the one you have, or upgrade?
  • Footwear - boots or trail runners?
  • Shirts / Pants - sizes and styles you prefer?
  • Jackets - need waterproof? puffy warm? other?

I used to have Cateye's strada w/cadence which is a pretty good basic cyclocomputer. I eventually replaced it with a garmin 500 because I wanted more data, but it should probably be fine for your purposes (it's also pretty light and inexpensive as far as cyclocomputers go).

u/ainsley27 · 5 pointsr/wedding

I'm going to be wearing pretty underwear and nothing else. My bra will be built into the dress, as the back is way too low to wear anything else and the dress has straps, and it's a very simple A-line gown - I don't need any more poof than is built into the dress. I got a dress that suits my body, so I don't even need shape wear. I am going to apply Body Glide between my thighs and keep some in my emergency kit in case I need to reapply. No tights, no stockings, no socks of any kind, as I'm going to wear sandals. Not even a garter.

Just pretty underwear.

The sideloading is awesome, and they can hold a playset per slot.

u/FUCK_THEECRUNCH · 5 pointsr/ElectricForest

Ok, so the camping area and the music area are separate and they don't allow you to bring in booze to the music area. Drinks are crazy expensive in there too and it is a drag walking all the way back to your campsite if you want to get tipsy. Not to worry though, it is very easy to bring in booze. You are allowed to bring in one sealed water bottle or one empty water bottle/nalgene (there are free water stations all over in the music area). So use these to make yourself some sealed water bottles that are actually full of vodka. Have a friend bring in an empty Nalgene and toss some of these in the bottom of your bag. You are now equipped to get drunk without spending a fortune on drinks. This works at virtually every festival where they do not allow you to bring in outside alcohol. I did it at summercamp with a whole case of these stealth water bottles.

EDIT:I forgot some things. Pack rubber rain boots and an umbrella. If it rains, festivals get MUDDY. This year Summercamp was totally rained out, but I was still able to enjoy it to the fullest because I had my boots and umbrella. So many people left early because of the weather. EF is car camping, so you don't really have to carry anything on your back into the festival, so you might as well fill the car up with everything you need without worrying about weight. Also on the way in they will ask each car if they are in a caravan so that those cars are kept as a group and everyone will be camped next to each other. If you guys are taking more than one car I would highly recommend not camping in a huge big group. My best friend and I went this year and while we knew other friends that were going we didn't try to camp near them. Best decision ever. Going with one or two other people instead of hanging out in a big group of people you already know is awesome. I didn't go to EF to hang out with people I can see every day. I went to meet awesome new people, like our neighbors. Pack a hammock. ENO puts hundreds of hammocks in the forest, but they get taken rather quickly. Bring your own in so you can chill in the forest when it is hot or between shows.

u/Inigo93 · 5 pointsr/CampingGear

Given how quickly it popped up with a google, I'm guessing Klean Kanteen doesn't fit your criterion. Before I do any further searching... What part of it don't you like?

u/ukarmy04 · 5 pointsr/bikecommuting

I've had the bike for a few weeks now and use it almost entirely for commuting. Here's what I've added since I got the bike:

  • GoPro Hero3 Black

  • NiteRider Lumina Micro 350 front and rear

  • Nite Ize HandleBand

  • Tektro CR720 Canti Brakes

  • Ibera PakRak Bicycle Touring Carrier Plus+

  • Avenir Excursion Rack-Top Bag

  • SKS P45 Black Chromoplastic Longboard

  • SRAM Supercork Bicycle Bar Tape (Black)

  • Shimano Brake Cable and Housing Set

  • Shimano Road Shift Cable and Housing Set

    The stock brakes weren't doing enough to stop me so I swapped them out for some Tektro CR720s. I dropped the yoke as far as I could to give myself as much leverage as possible. Braking is much better now and more reliable than the original set ever was.

    I added a rack and trunk bag that's big enough to hold my food and clothes for the day. The only modification I had to make here was filing away some metal from rack mounting leg. It was colliding with frame near the dropout and not allowing the leg to sit close enough to the braze on.

    Some of the original cable housings that came with the bike had some gouges in them so Nashbar sent me a new replacement cable set. I swapped out all the brake/shift cables and replaced the bar tape with some SRAM cork tape. The original cables from Nashbar were also a bit too long and were causing excessive friction.

    I added some SKS fenders per the recommendations of users on this sub. They were a little finicky to install but I got them on in the end. This particular frame doesn't have bolt holes in either of the two rear bridges so I had to resort to the classic zip tie approach.

    As far as the bike goes, it's been performing flawlessly so far. It weighs close to 30 lbs now so it's not the lightest thing in the world. However, the steel frame and the large tires really help smooth out the road quite a bit. The saddle is still the most uncomfortable part of the bike, but I'm hoping to swap it out sometime in the near future. Shifting is still very smooth and the 4 trim positions on the 105 front derailleur is a great feature.

    If you're considering getting a bike from Nashbar, I'd definitely recommend them. Their customer service was fantastic and everything they shipped usually got to me door in 2-3 days (even the bike!).

Get a Lifestraw! I used it for the whole three months and had no problems whatsoever

u/Isogen_ · 5 pointsr/photography

It depends on where you're going and what shots you want.

Are you planning to go to Udawalawe? If so, your kit lens will do for the most part, but do bring a telephoto to get some of the wildlife shots esp. the birds. Depending on the guide and timing, you can actually get pretty damn close to the elephants for example: However, there are other things like birds you can't really get without a telephoto.

For example, if you're going to Polonnaruwa and want to take shots of the monkeys, you need a telephoto. You don't want to get very close to these bastards despite them being used to people and coming pretty close to people. I have a bunch of shots from here, but these are not on my phone unfortunately, so can't upload them. edit: Found a few more pics:

Pic 3 - I wish I had a fast zoom. You can clearly see the issues with the image in low light. This + bad tripod + no IS (older kit lens) on the lens = bad time.

Pic 4 - Frescos are pretty cool and there were places where I couldn't get multiple of them in to one shot like I wanted. A wide angle would help. I can imagine a few cool macro shots of the frescos as well, but I wasn't really able to do that due to equipment limitations.

For landscape hots of say Polonnaruwa or Sigiriya or Mackwoods other places, you definitely should go with a wide angle. The Canon 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM is under $300 and probably your best bet when it comes to price vs performance. It's by no mean the absolute best wide angle lens, but it's pretty cheap and offer good performance.

Your f2.8/1.8s will come in very handy, especially if you want to take inside shots of say the Dalada Maligawa. I really wished I had a fast lens when I went.

Also, if you're going to the Peradeniya Botanical Garden, either bring a macro lens or extension tubes. You may also want to invest in a GoPro (or a Xiaomi Yi, make sure you get a real one and not a counterfeit). I wished I had a GoPro or similar action cam to record say the ascend/descend for Sigiriya.

And bring LOTS of batteries AND a DC to AC car inverter in the 100-200W range so you can charge your stuff on the go. My relatives told me to bring this, and it was invaluable while traveling to charge my camera batteries, laptop and phone. I used this one:

DO bring a laptop and external HDD/SSD for backing up. I would personally go with a 500GB or larger SSD now as things can get rough on a HDD while traveling. I had 2x500GB SSDs (swapped out DVD RW to 2nd HDD cage see:, make sure you get the right sized one) on my laptop, and had an 2TB HDD. Backed up photos/videos to both of these.

Things I wish I brought:

  • A good tripod, I got a cheap light weight $40ish one, and it really showed. This was really apparent at Sigiriya when the wind picked up. I couldn't even do 1/2sec shots as the camera moved just enough in the wind to blur things. Invest in a good tripod.

  • Macro lens or extension tubes. Particularly wished I had this at the botanical gardens and a few other places.

  • Action cam, see above

  • A Lifestraw. Got sick for like a few days probably because of bad water. I was careful about the food, but still got a bug. DO be careful of the food AND the water. There are places that will sell refilled water bottles that have local unboiled/unpurified water, so be careful. Make sure you break the seal yourself. Or just use the Lifestraw water bottle. See:

  • Bring a small first aid kit or just buy locally when you get there. Got a few cuts and scratches on the field (slipped while not paying attention lol) and had to improvise bandaid using some tape + paper lol.

  • Wide angle lens. Some of the shots at Sigiriya frescos and just landscapes in general would have been nice with a good wide angle lens.

  • Fast lenses for low light indoor work. Really missed this. But you have this covered pretty well.

  • Extra SD cards. I brought 5 64GB cards, but I did video on my camera as well, so the cards filled up fast. I brought back roughly 300GB worth of stuff (after culling) and moving them on to the laptop was a bit inconvenient as the cards filled up but not too big of a deal. HIGHLY recommend buying a GOOD external HDD or SSD + enclosure to backup your stuff.

  • A notebook. I didn't bring one, but bought one locally after the first day of shooting to write down thoughts/plans,etc. More convenient than typing up on the laptop/phone.

    Source: Been there, done that. Spent about 4ish weeks in June/July. Traveled to Udawalawe, Polonnaruwa, Sigiriya, Mackwoods and Peradeniya. I didn't spend a lot of time in the big cities like Colombo, so can't really comment on cityscape stuff. I traveled with my aunts, cousins, uncles, etc who live/lived in Sri Lanka so they knew their way around stuff which made it a lot easy to get to places. PM me or ask here if you have any questions.

    Well, that's a lot longer than I expected... hope this helps OP!

Please edit your post to follow the shakedown format as there are unanswered questions like budget, non-negotiable items, etc.

Are all of these items weighed yourself or manufacturing listed weights? Please be sure that the weigh all your gear as manufacturing weights are very often inaccurate. I would be very surprised if your Merino Wool socks are 5oz. Note, that in lighterpack, one place all item weights even if they are worn or consumable to get accurate total pack weight and worn weight statistics.

Cheap fixes:

  • [-8.9oz, $9] Drop the footprint for polycro. It comes in a two pack and many thru hikers have found them reliable.
  • [-3.77oz, $15] Drop 3 of the smart water bottles for a Evernew 2L bladder. Consider also whether you really need so much water storage as you may be fine with 1 of these bladders and 1 smart water bottle for 3.5L capacity.
  • [-14.5oz, free] Drop the solar charger. (See below)
  • [-4.6oz, free] Drop the powercore. (See below)
  • [+6.3oz, $27] Buy an Anker Powercore 10000. The slim option is also something to consider for an additional ounce with faster speeds.

    = 26.47oz for $51.

    Obviously the pack, sleeping and shelter systems can be reduced significantly. Please weigh your gear and specify a budget so that others can help more.

Water itself doesn't go bad, it's the conditions it's kept it. It stagnates in air, or in bottles the chemicals leach into it.

That's why I have one of these on my wishlist.

Use 1L smartwater bottles and this Blue Desert SmarTube Hydration System

The mouthpiece sucks so browse Amazon for a replacement. I ended up pulling my mouthpiece off an old osprey bag. Smartwater bottles are super durable, BPA free, cheap, and connect well with Sawyer filter products.

u/s0rce · 3 pointsr/norcalhiking

I'm not really sure what you are asking or what you mean by athlete but I hate bladders for hiking and hence never use them, due to the following challenges, they are difficult to clean, heavy, expensive. Its also super easy to stop for 5 seconds to take a swig from a water bottle while hiking and if you need water you could probably use a little break anyways, you shouldn't need water every five minutes. They are also very difficult to fill from standing water sources on the trails so you have to carry all your water, often unnecessarily. My small dayback has a sleeve/compartment for a bladder but I just use it to store some clothing or maps or whatever else I need for the day.

If you could somehow solve these issues, although I really cant see how much you can improve on a $1 smartwater bottle, I've seen these products

but they are still a hassle to clean and don't really solve a problem.

If you are running, mountain biking or skiing this is a different story, in these sports drinking from a water bottle can be cumbersome and then a bladder has some tangible benefit.

u/mentalorigami · 3 pointsr/bicycling

Cateye Strada Cadence nice and cheap, I've put a few thousand miles on mine with no issues. Has not one, not two, but three mileage readings, trip, trip2 and odo (lifetime miles) as well as speed, average speed, cadence and time. Well worth the $35.

u/WRSaunders · 3 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

There are two kinds of problem.

The high end solution, like the LifeSaver, can work with surface water.

If you're dealing with public water that's been processed by the local government's water treatment plants (which might not be to the standard your body is used to), then a filter bottle might be the right solution. If it's a biologic contaminant, then something like a SteriPen could be the right answer.

u/grewapair · 3 pointsr/bikecommuting

I got a bike handlebar mount like this one and replaced the batteries in an old cell phone. Total cost about $20.

I installed the daily roads voyager app that records successive 2 minute clips until the storage you allot is full, then it overwrites the oldest one. If you touch the screen, it saves that clip and doesn't overwrite it. If it detects impact, it saves the last two clips.

Honestly, it recorded as well as anything I've seen online, even at night. The only problem was the mounting and unmounting of the handlebar mount, which added an extra minute. That, coupled with the fact that in a year, I never really recorded anything exciting, led me to stop using it, as it just wasn't worth the trouble.

Three years later, I still have had nothing exciting happen.

Invest the money into better visibility gear. I use a high viz vest for $6, and enough lights you can see from Mars: complete overkill. I even have superbright red lights I use in the daytime.

Then I spent a fair amount of time learning to read driver cues and figuring out how to avoid the typical dangerous situations that lead to most accidents. Example: as you approach an intersection as you're passing the line of stopped cars that is just restarting, pick one car you'll never be able to get ahead of before the intersection and stay just behind them. You never get right hooked. At every intersection, I treat a green light like a 4 way stop sign: look both ways and assume someone will run the light. When riding near parking spaces, drivers who drive slowly are likely looking for parking and will dart into a space, so just stay behind them.

If you do all that, nothing exciting enough to record ever happens.

u/SearingPhoenix · 2 pointsr/Nerf

Nice thorough review. +1.

I have the similar AK rig, and I have to admit, I wish I had gone with a 100% MOLLE rig.

I did a chunk of research the other day, and I think personally I'd have to go with a waist-loaded option. For whatever reason, having straps on my shoulders makes it annoying to really couch a blaster in my shoulder, on top of the straps -- don't ask me why, it's just always... Not quite right.

That said, if I had to rebuy my rig, I'd spend a bit more and get this setup:

  • Condor Gen 2 BattleBelt + Condor Duty Belt
  • Condor Dual AK Mag Pouch or Tri AK Mag Pouch
  • Single-Point Sling

    I'd probably go with a double pouch on each side, carrying 8x18 + 2 or 3 in/on the blaster + sidearm + holdouts. More than enough.

    Everything's on the waist, out of the way so you keep utmost in upper-body maneuverability. Everything's also off to the side, so you can go prone/flat against walls pretty easily on either side, whereas the chest rig made bellying up to a wall less than ideal.

    If I wanted to go for extras, I'd want to look at a Mag Recovery Dump Pouch for one side.

    For those that want the shoulder support, you can get an H-Harness

    Now for the really crazy research that I did.

    I considered adding hydration of some kind, which gets a bit tricky for waist packs. The slickest hydration pack I could probably find was the Condor Hydro Harness which actually fits nicely with all of their gear -- but you need to have a compatible chest rig to use it properly... Which means things on the shoulders. Even more cobbled together solutions, such as an H-Harness + Hydration carrier has the same problem, although less so.

    Fortunately, there are solutions! MOLLE-compatible 'side' hydration pouches, such as the Source Kangaroo 1L or the Blackout! Side Hydration Pouch would take the water off the back. 1L is a lot less, as most backpacks are 2, 2.5, or even more in capacity. The downside of any hydration pouch is twofold in this case:

  1. You don't have any good way to keep the water line near your mouth, since you lack shoulder straps.

  2. Cleaning bladders is a pain!

    That said, Source does make some pretty awesome extras, both of which seem really useful the former of which may even work to deal with problem #1 in this case.

    There's another alternative to this, too, though! I personally find my Nerf habit totally niche, so I always feel a bit guilty getting something JUST for Nerf... But Nalgene bottles or the like are really useful otherwise, so that's always a nice option.

  • Getting just a MOLLE Nalgene carrier or generic bottle pouch would work fine. Solid Nalgene bottles have pros and cons though. Pros: it's rigid and strong, which means it takes impact and wear very well. Cons: It's hard, so it doesn't collapse, and it's generally more bulky.
  • You can get soft Nalgene Canteens in 32oz or 48oz and put them in some sort of suitable pouch. I imagine the 32oz canteen would fit rather well in the standard bottle carrier, although I don't know how well the bottle carrier collapses, making the presence of a canteen possibly moot.
  • Turn any Nalgene (or smaller water bottles, if the usual 32oz is too large) into a hydration carrier with a straw adapter. Popular ones include SmarTube or Source SNEP, both of which include a Nalgene-compatible 63mm wide-mouth adapter, and the Condor Nalgene carrier has a straw pass-thru in the top. Obviously, the downside to this is that the thing you're drinking from generally needs to be upright to ensure constant water supply. Not that big of an issue, but it does limit canteen pouch options to ones that will hold the thing upright.

    I personally think I'd lean towards the straw option, as it's easier to clean and more universally usable, although I'm not entirely certain I'd like the bulk of a Nalgene bottle on my waist and the slosh factor, both of which are lesser issues when dealing with a bladder. Maybe I'll try and find a suitable pouch for a 32oz Nalgene canteen and get the SNEP...

    EDIT: Malformed link.
u/SW_hiker · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

This is what I use Blue Desert Smart Tube and I use it with smartwater type bottles.

u/JMJACO · 2 pointsr/WildernessBackpacking

I think there are a couple of questions you should ask yourself first.

  1. How do you plan to treat water? Sawyer Squeeze (, Aquatabs (, bleach, etc.?
  2. How do you plan to carry that much water? Does your bag and gear accommodate the space and weight?
    If you are using the Sawyer Squeeze, you could use something like 3L CNOC bags (the thread on top matches the Squeeze, unlike other bags), and the 3L CNOC bag is 3.7oz each ($23 Good lightweight construction. If you plan to use Aquatabs, Aquamira, or bleach, you could use something even more lightweight like the Platypus 2L bags at 1.3oz each ($9 Those do not match the Squeeze threads, but if you're not using Squeeze anyway it wouldn't matter. Both the CNOC and Platypus bags roll down to nothing when empty, and are easy to travel with. You could carry 2 of the CNOC or Platypus bags + 2 1L Smartwater bottles (again, the threading on these matches Sawyer Squeeze) for a total of 6-8oz, without using that much space, and without costing that much money. Just remember that water itself is pretty heavy, which is why most people try to camel up and drink a lot at water stops, and then not have to carry as much all day.
u/MrStop2 · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

That tends to be my process as well. I use a 2 liter platy ( for the dirty water and a 1L Aquafina bottle for my clean.

u/kyuss80 · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

I am not ultralight (I'm "kinda lightweight!") or a thru-hiker (I'd sure like to be one day) -- but I just recently switched to Smart Water bottles myself. I started using two 1L bottles, instead of carrying a giant Nalgene 1.5L Titan Silo. Smart Water bottles are easy to slip in and out of pockets, durable, and super lightweight. Easy to replace at $2 a bottle.

I have a lot of platypus bottles and I do use them for assorted other things. I caught some 0.5L purple ones on clearance at Dick's once -- probably cause they were purple, but I don't care. Most recently used on a few weekend trips to take some sort of spirits out, be it bourbon, whiskey, or vodka. It's nice to be able to pass a bottle around with your friends and share a few sips.

The most useful one I have is my 2L Platypus bottle. I take this on every trip and carry it rolled up and empty in a backpack pocket. I've used it as a "camp water" bag, fill it up the afternoon I arrive somewhere, use it to top off other bottles, and also for any situation where I think I might need to "camel up" a little extra water if we might not have a source easily available.

They're only $12 or so on Amazon and weigh 2.4 ounces.

Also with the little coupler adapter it screws right into my Sawyer / Platypus "dirty bag" gravity feed setup.

Sure, I'd shave these extra few things off maybe on a thru-hike attempt but most of my trips are only 3 days or so for now.

>How does it compare to regular chalk

It works as advertised. First time I used it I put on too little, other times I've accidentally squirted out too much. Takes a little bit of figuring out to get the "right" amount.

Great for those gyms that have annoyingly strict no-chalk policies.

u/Bambi726 · 2 pointsr/poledancing

I go back and forth between Dry Hands and Liquid Grip. I find Liquid Grip absorbs sweat a bit better. Same as Dry Hands though, I often have to reapply.

u/michaeljay11 · 2 pointsr/yoga

There's no "cheating" in yoga, you should do whatever you can to help your practice. I've been practicing for about 2.5 years and I've always been an excessive sweater - I always bring a towel to class and I tend to put liquid grip (chalk) on my hands if it's particularly hot in the room:

There's also mats you can buy with fabric coverings. However, if you feel like the yoga gloves work for you, stick with them. No need to feel self-conscious in yoga, the practice is your own and nobody will judge you for it.

u/Scyth3 · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I run ultras/marathons/etc. Body Glide everything up that might chafe. If you want to go even more over the top, use body glide then aquaphor on top of that. Compression shorts only do so much, but do help.

Buy the big 2.5oz one :)

Body Glide. kept my thighs, under-boob, and heels super happy during a 2-day festival on the beach last month. 10/10.

u/trial2002 · 2 pointsr/running

Have you tried BodyGlide Anti-Chafe Balm.

I used to have problem and use it and haven't had problem since.

u/protomor · 2 pointsr/bodybuilding

Looked it up on amazon $4.50 - $184.99


u/doingkermit · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I used to chafe constantly when working out / running / cycling in the inner thigh region. So much so that I can get to the point where bleeding happens and it hurts like a motherfucker and I can't walk the rest of the day or next.

I got this:

I saw bodyglide rcmnded in another thread and went ahead and tried it. Applied to my inner thighs before working out and after a shower. I haven't chafed once since I got it. Freaking amazing stuff.

Edit: Odorless and doesn't leave any marks, if that makes any difference. seriously amazing stuff 10/10

u/Fauxparty · 2 pointsr/magicTCG

I have an Ultra Pro Premium PRO-BINDER in brown leatherette as my main trade binder, and use a QuadRow Zipfolio™ - Ultimate Guard – Premium Protection in black as my main storage binder for valuables.

u/Inquisitor_ForHire · 2 pointsr/Malifaux

So... to answer the second part of your question... card protection:

I(and basically everyone around me) uses these:
They're slightly loose on the cards which I like... makes them easier to get in and out if needed. You can get tighter ones that fit like a glove, but I like the slightly looser ones. Just need to be consistent in loading them so your marks line up on the wound circles.

For organization, I use these binders:

They're available in colors... I can get two complete factions in a binder. So I've got a Green one that houses Rezzers/Neverborn, and a Red one with Guild/Ten Thunders. 9 pockets per page... I tend to group everything by role... so a "page" for masters, a page for totems, then Henchmen, enforcers, minions, etc. I put "page" in quotes because it's really two pages as there's plenty of room to space everything out. For upgrades, I keep them grouped by crew and there's enough room for them to stay seperate and not get mixed together. Dupes I just stack in the same pocket... so things like Rotten Belles only take one slot.

Nice thing about the binders is the pockets are "side loading" so stuff isn't sliding out of the binder. I tried 3 ring binders with the pocket pages in them at the start and the top loading really sucked. Plus these take up less space in my bag... I generally carry two factions with me when I'm playing, but in my bag I keep all my cards (three notebooks) to keep things consistent, so saving space is helpful.

u/kynwork2 · 2 pointsr/boardgames

I'm a sucker for Ultra Pro Binders:

There is one of the more expensive ones, but they come in non-leather as well.

For the record I played Magic for years, collected the old Game of Thrones LCG, Netrunner and various other TCGs, CCGs and LCGs throughout the years and these are my go to, I even use these for X-Wing (Though with that one it's probably going to expand because I plan on getting coin sleeves for the chits and dials)

u/ehsu · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Standard MFA recommendations are Timex Weekender and Seiko 5.

u/sennateg · 2 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

These are ok. if you want an everyday,versatile watch, i'd probably go for the popular one with olive or blue/grey strap that you can find on amazon. I get compliments all the time and they look great with a leather strap. (FYI price is higher than when i bought it a couple months ago. it was around 26/27.00

u/trashpanda8 · 2 pointsr/Watchexchange

Well, I spent an hour typing this up before I accidentally hit refresh and deleted it all, so let's try this again.

Let me begin by saying that the T2E581, Weekender and camo NATO are all in good condition, they just don't get the wrist time that they deserve and that is why I am offering the lot up for trade. Ideally I would like to trade the whole lot for one watch although I'll consider offers for just one of my watches or pairings of one of my watches with the camo NATO.

First watch I'll describe is the Timex T2E581. It is a lovely watch that I very recently acquired in a trade, it just isn't my style and it hasn't (and likely wouldn't if I kept it) gotten the wrist time that it deserves. It is in good condition, although it does has a scratch that is barely noticeable around the twelve o'clock position. The watch's dial itself is a cream color with roman numerals (note the watchmaker's four (IIII) instead of IV) and a day and date window in the three o'clock position. The watch features the iconic indiglo feature, which is great at night, whether your out in the middle of no where or laying in bed and don't want to be blinded by the light of your phone.

Case Diameter: 40mm

Lug Width: 20mm

Water Resistance: 50m

Amazon lists this watch for just over $50. Link to Amazon page

Next is the Timex Weekender. I got this watch sometime in August and have only worn it a handful of times. The watch is in great condition and has no damage that I can see. The dial of this watch is an off-white color and the case is a silver color. The watch also features indiglo, just push the crown in and the dial will glow. The Weekender makes for a great beater and is great for camping, hiking, and whatever other outdoor activity your into. Included is the box, stand thing, and papers that it came with.

Case Diameter: 38mm

Lug Width: 20mm

Water Resistance: 30m

Along with the Weekender is the original blue with grey stripe NATO that it came with and a white with blue stripe Weekender NATO that I picked up at a flea market. Full disclosure: the white and blue strap appears a little worn and the white appears kinda discolored, although I did try to clean it. The blue and grey strap on the other hand is the strap that the Weekender came with and is in great condition. Both are comfortable and are 20mm wide, matching the lug width of the Weekender. Note that both of these straps are Weekender NATOs, meaning that they are one piece and slip through. Not sure if I described that well enough, but you can see what I'm talking about in the pictures if you compare them with the camo NATO.

Amazon lists the Weekender for just over $30. Link to Amazon page Note that I'm pretty sure the watch I linked is the white version and the one I am offering is off-white.

Last part of the lot is a high quality 20mm camo NATO strap. The strap is in excellent condition, it's actually never been worn. Like I said above, it's a great NATO, it's just not getting the wrist time it deserves so I figured I'd include it in this lot and see it go to a good home.

If I missed any details or if you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment or send a pm.

Happy Holidays!

u/HALF-turtles-SHELL · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I'm not a fan of either. Budget watches that I would consider:

u/CARTERsauce · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

See I bought a pair on sale at Urban (for like $40!) that were a 27 or 28, I can't remember, as a goal pair, but I had them for a while and I couldn't get them past my upper thighs so I ended up giving them to a girl, she moved away, and I know I'd fit into them now man, sucks.

A Timex is about $35 (Easy Reader, Weekender, Leather Weekender) unless you meant that until you can afford a quality watch, you're not gonna bother with one at all, which isn't really a bad idea.

u/Xinijia · 2 pointsr/TeenFFA

Order a [Timex Weekender] ( today, super excited for a decent watch.

u/giantnakedrei · 2 pointsr/bicycling

I can't answer most of your questions, but I can give advice for one or two things. As far as the bike shorts go, don't feel that it's necessary to wear them for every ride. And wearing shorts over them is definitely an option. I wear a pair of more 'form-fitting' but not overly long shorts over my bike shorts (me in bike shorts is more than anybody but my gf ever wants to see.) But, you might want to buy a jersey shirt, if only for the pockets on the back. If you want to carry anything on longer rides, the bouncing of stuff in shorts/pants pockets gets old REALLY fast.

And as far as the pedals and shoes go, I'd advise waiting on the clipless ones. They're nice as far as riding goes, but I'd get used to everything else on the bike first. They'll probably run more than $25 bucks if you decide to upgrade to them (although there are less expensive ones out there - they usually start around $40-50 for the cheaper ones.) Shoes will cost a good bit too. But they aren't an absolute necessity - in fact, you can pedal a SPD pedal with normal shoes in a pinch, it's just a bit less stable.

And as far as apps go, you'll probably be up a river looking for that functionality (especially the crash reporting.) However, the most popular (and the 4 that I use regularly - aka every ride) are Strava Ride with GPS Map My Ride and Endomondo. Ride with GPS has live logging (every minute) for you SO to track you if you wish. All of them do map tracking for free. Advanced statistics are available to subscribers and/or Pro/Plus (paid) versions of the apps on the Play Store. They'll work with bluetooth HR sensors as well. Find out which one works best for what you want before you shell out cash for these subscriptions...

As for the mount, I have a waterproof one that was about $30 here in Japan, but probably isn't available in the States. NVM FOUND IT. It works adequately, but my phone is prone to overheating in the sun (not a top quality phone) as the bag seals and there is no ventilation. Although it does lock the phone securely to the bike. Between that and a constantly checking speed and stuff I switched to carrying my phone in my jersey pocket when it's especially warm outside.

u/i_am_viet · 2 pointsr/bicycling

I used the following with my Samsung Galaxy 3 when I first started out cycling

It works great and doesn't break the bank.

However, after a couple of months I retired the mount + phone set up. Strava eats through batteries quick. I invested $90 on a Garmin Edge 200. Less profile and way longer battery life.

I EDC a 40 oz Klean Kanteen and absolutely love the bottle, my only complaint was it gets condensation from cold drinks and has zero insulation. I solved this by cutting down a a wine bottle carrier. I used some floss to sew up the carrier so it's a little more snug on the top and so the stitching didn't come undone. Thanks for looking

Here is a link to the water bottle:

and the Wine Bottle Carrier:

u/ILoveYouSoVeryMuch · 2 pointsr/EDC
  • Water bottle: Klean Kanteen 64 ounce stainless steel - $30
  • Phone: I might buy a cheap MetroPCS phone w/ $25 plan
  • Wallet: Alpine Swiss - $12
  • Watches: I'd be happy with a black and brown Timex Easy Reader - $25 each. Fossil would be my next level, but what are some some even better watches?
  • Flashlight: This is hard because I love my light but it's discontinued. It would have to be a single AAA light with a reversible pocket clip. Maybe a Lenser P2 - $17
  • Protection: Condom case - $5 and Skyn condoms - $17
  • Protection: Glock 19 - $550 and Galco King Tuk - $60
  • More protection: Milt Sparks pocket magazine carrier - $63
  • Belts: Black and Brown Hanks Amish Belts - $36 each. Maybe I'd shop around, but they have been working for me.


  • Leatherman carabiner + bottle opener - $10
  • SOG keyknife - $11
  • Uncle Bill's tweezers - $10 for 2
  • A pill holder from Winn-Dixie... - ~$5
  • Reusable earplugs - $13

    I'm not sure if I want to carry a full-sized knife anymore but I think the Boker Plus Nano ($43) looks cool!

    That's just about my current EDC. I'm planning on eventually buying the carabiner, key knife, tweezers, and I'll probably go with a desantis pocket mag carrier opposed to the 3x more expensive Milt Sparks.

u/shootsfilmwithbullet · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

I don't know how new it is but this is what I bought

u/DanniAnna · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

i first tried it about 10 years ago with a Platypus Gravityworks filter and it blew my mind. Since then i give just about every other filter in-line and theyre all pretty good. Platty is the heaviest and most expensive and Sawyer mini is the cheapest, lightest, but shortest lived with the most drinking resistance (but thats still not much resistance at all).

The liberation of being able to just scoop up your water and go - especially with a bigmouth type bladder, is really nice.

The lightest version ive found so far is an Evernew 2L zip-top bladder (1.8oz) + Evernew bottle drink tube kit (1.8oz) + Hydroblu or Vecto filter (1.4oz) = 5oz

Adding capacity means i only need to add additional 1.8oz 2L bottles since the hose + filter can be swapped from bladder to bladder.

While the Evernew is the lightest, Hydrapack Shapeshifter (short & fat version) at 4.8oz with the hose, and 2.9 without, is still my preferred because its easier to handle in and out of my pack’s side pockets. Its soft whereas the Evernew is pretty stiff

u/astrofizix · 2 pointsr/bicycling

Get a saddle bag that goes behind the seat. They come in several sizes. You can even buy a pre-packed one, although you will probably get a low quality selection of items for a higher price. Talk to the LBS guy to get a multi-tool, tire lever, spare tube, and a patch kit. You will want a pump to strap to your bike frame. This is the bare minimum that I can think of. We all like to carry extra items that we pick over time with experience, but these will get you to your meeting if you know how to use them. And if you want a cool bottle, I like this one.

I have yet to attach the water bottle holders to my cart, so I can't give you any advice on those, but the cell phone holder and umbrella holder are tits. The umbrella holder is a little wobbly since its all plastic and you're trying to clamp onto foam. The cell phone holder is a pretty nice touch. No more carrying it in your pocket, or digging through your bag. If you like to use golf course apps or listen to music this little thing is awesome. Just be careful how you position the phone, since the clamping mechanism always hits my volume buttons.

Next, I'd like to get a mesh sack for underneath the handle to toss broken tees, or golf balls into while I play.

1L (befree) + 2L (2 x 1L smart waters) + 4L (2 x 2 Platy bottles) = 7L capacity, but I never carried more than 6 and that was once. Your average carry will be 2-3L tops

u/hom3lesshom3boy · 1 pointr/backpacking

I'm kind of in the same boat as you are. Started backpacking maybe about 2 months ago and had a ton of old gear. Carrying 35 lbs over 26 miles was no fun, and when I came back home to research lighter stuff I kept finding things that were hundreds of dollars a piece. I did a ton of research and found some good quality gear at a budget level.

Mind the formatting/spelling errors. On mobile.

Tent - $70 - Geertop 1 Person 3 Season 20D Ultralight Backpacking Tent for Camping Hiking Climbing (Trekking Poles NOT Included)(Inner Tent is Green)

Pad - $40 - WellaX Ultralight Air Sleeping Pad – Inflatable Camping Mat for Backpacking, Traveling and Hiking Air Cell Design for Better Stability & Support –Plus Repair Kit (Green)

*note I sleep warm and wear layers. I found the quilt to be good for 3 season camping in the temperate CA conditions. The pad helps with the cold and I'm a side sleeper so the pad is a requirement for me. YMMV.

Poles - $22 (needed for the tent listed above) - BAFX Products - 2 Pack - Anti Shock Hiking / Walking / Trekking Trail Poles - 1 Pair, Blue, Royal Blue

Cook pot - $11 - G4Free Outdoor Camping pan Hiking Cookware Backpacking Cooking Picnic Bowl Pot Pan Set 4 Piece Camping Cookware Mess Kit(2 PCS-Green)

I cook simple meals that mostly require just boiling water. It's also large enough to fit my soap, stove, and gas can in.

Stove - $14 - Etekcity Ultralight Portable Outdoor Backpacking Camping Stove with Piezo Ignition

Water filtration (4 parts)
Dirty water bag - $20 - Cnoc Outdoors Vecto 2L Water Container, 28mm, Orange

Clean water bag - $13 - Platypus Platy 2-Liter Ultralight Collapsible Water Bottle

Filter - $37 - Sawyer Products SP137 PointOne Squeeze Water Filter System with 16-Ounce Pouch, Straw, and Hydration Pack Adapters

Filter attachment - $3 - Sawyer Products SP150 Coupling for Water Filtration Cleaning

With this water system you have the option of gravity feeding your water supply at camp. You can also simplify by just buying the $37 kit and just squeeze directly into your water bottle/bladder, but I find this setup more convenient.

After that, the rest are kind of up to you. Food, clothes, etc. I wouldn't skimp on shoes though. Look into trail runners or hiking SHOES (not boots).

Optional things I'd look into is paracord and a tarp especially if you're going to camp in the rain. You can also look into hammock camping which would be a little more budget friendly than the tent + blanket option.

Overall there are definitely cheaper options but I find this to be a good balance of price, weight, and convenience.

All in all this is about $265.

u/atlasMuutaras · 1 pointr/bicycling

Okay, follow up question. Given the choice between wireless and a cadence sensor, which would you chose?

The choice is not purely academic. Apparently you can get one or the other at the higher end of my price range.

u/farski · 1 pointr/cycling seems to fit the bill; anything from Cateye should hold up fine over time. At <$40 you're not going to get much in the way of features or flair, especially if you want cadence. The selection of wired computers is smaller than it used to be, so there just aren't as many options.

u/helix6 · 1 pointr/bicycling

I use a Cateye Strada Cadence. It's wired but it's reliable for the price.

u/dablya · 1 pointr/bicycling

Would this be an ok cheap one?

u/animalarmament · 1 pointr/bicycling

Cateyes are nice. I wouldn't get one with gps, it costs a bunch and doesn't give you much utility in return. I think it's nice to have a second sensor for cadence, if I were buying a new computer that would be one of my main criteria (I inherited a cateye without cadence, but I can approximate it from my speed since I ride fixed atm). Going wired will save you money and it's not hassle once it's installed. I'd say go for the Strada Cadence.

u/mikeswiz · 1 pointr/cycling

I recently bought a [cateye strada cadence] ( to use while training and on the road and once it's installed it's great. Installation was a bit of a pain though and took me a few hours, although I'm a bit OCD when it comes to routing wires.

You don't need wireless, it just becomes a pain in the rear to change the batteries on both, but what are you using it for Road or Mt?

u/M4gic · 1 pointr/travel

I've researched and tested and researched some more, filter bottles for my upcoming trip through SE Asia. Bottom line, probably more hassle than just being careful and sticking to bottled water. Those two you linked are not going to do anything for bacteria and viruses. Viruses will be the main concern when traveling and drinking water but is also the hardest to filter since the filter has to be around 25nm and below for that. Basically if you are really worried and really want a cheap solution you can try the Sawyer Water Bottle, it doesn't filter viruses but it looks to be the easiest and non-messy. I tried the Lifesaver Bottle but it ended up leaking all over the place and being very bulky.

u/skippygo · 1 pointr/vandwellers

I made another comment below about using something like one of these type of filters (claims to filter everything from particulate matter all the way down to viruses from 4000 litres of water). Obviously this is a bit on the expensive side but if it would work well it would certainly be something I'd seriously consider for the convenience and environmental factors. What do you think? (I would probably look to use this as the last stage of a filtration system to avoid clogging the expensive filter with crap)

I've been dealing with plantar fasciitis for a couple of months now. I'm just now feeling like I'm recovering from it. My advice is to respect the injury. The more you push it, the longer you will take to recover. Don't try to do more than you should just because you have a marathon coming up - you'll just make things worse. There's always another race you can run later.

As for what's working for me:

  1. I went to the podiatrist and got some inserts for my shoes which helped. Never walk barefoot if you can help it.

  2. Get a night splint. Seriously, it makes a huge difference in recovery. I've tried several different ones: 1 2 3. The first one (Strassburg Sock) is the best one in my opinion. It's the most comfortable to sleep in and it stretches the plantar fascia the most.

  3. Get a few metal water bottles and fill them up and stick them in the freezer. They're very good for icing your feet, which helps.

Since I'm on vacation in the rural mountains, I have no access to paper and pencil... So I had to murder my idea in MS Paint. D: I don't know if this counts at all, but it's "hand" "painted" on a laptop trackpad... I... I don't know.

Here's what it's supposed to be of:

u/ski3 · 1 pointr/weddingplanning


Personalized Totebags- They've come in and the quality is actually a lot nicer than I expected, especially for the price. There's even a small organization pocket on the inside. I thought these would be nice so my girls all have a place to carry their stuff for the weekend, and they'll also be useful for everyday life afterwards as well.

Personalized Tumblers- I thought these would be nice for helping keep everyone hydrated over the weekend and since they're personalized, my bridesmaids don't have to worry about accidentally sharing someone else's germs. The straw will be good for not messing up lipstick and makeup while drinking while getting ready. These can also be useful after the wedding weekend as well.

Plaid Flannel Shirts- I bought everyone a men's plaid flannel shirt for an oversized look (and a comfortable feel). I plan on having everyone wear these while getting ready. A few of my bridesmaids already know about these and are extremely excited because they love plaid flannels and wear them a lot in every day life.

Talaria Flats- I thought these would be nice for everyone to use on the wedding day and it makes it so the bridesmaids have one less thing to worry about buying and coordinating. Two of my bridesmaids have allergies to specific metals so i wanted to avoid jewelry as I didn't want to cause anyone a reaction, so we're going with coordinated shoes instead. They're also extremely comfortable and will be great for our outdoor wedding.

Bridesman- I also got him a plaid flannel shirt and a personalized tumbler (his is much more masculine than the ones I got for the girls). I also got him socks (which match the groomsmen's socks) and a dopp kit. We'll also be getting him a tie in the same color as the bridesmaid's dresses.


Wall-mounted bottle openers- My fiancé is DIYing them for everyone. He really likes working with wood and most of the groomsmen have recently gotten really into craft beer, so he's excited for that.

Beer- My fiancé is going to brew his own beer to give to the groomsmen. if there's some leftover (there probably will be), we'll also probably give a bottle to everyone else in the wedding party as well.

Socks- Same as the bridesmaid's socks.

Bow Ties- We plan on buying everyone matching bow ties.

Water Bottles- Another item that is nice to have to keep everyone hydrated over the weekend, but that can also be used again in everyday life after the wedding.


We actually just ordered these yesterday! We ordered them matching necklaces customized to our wedding colors (which happen to be both of their favorite colors as well). We also plan on getting them a gift box of these really cool-looking (and amazingly delicious) locally-made chocolates.

Fiancé's Dad (mine's not invited as I haven't seen him since I was 5)

Right now we're debating between getting him a watch or a monogrammed wallet. Like the moms, we also plan on getting him some of those chocolates.

Ring Bearer Handler (our dog is our ring bearer, so we're having a close friend who raises service dog puppies take care of him at the wedding and feel she deserves some kind of thank you too)

She's getting the same tote bag and tumbler that the bridesmaids are getting. We're also filling her tote bag with a variety of dog toys for her to take back home for her own dogs.

We also still need to figure out something to get for our "officiant" (legally, we'll be marrying ourselves because Pennsylvania allows that but not internet ordained ministers. But one of our closest friends, who happens to also be the person that introduced us to each other, is going to be acting as an officiant for the ceremony). Most likely, we'll probably get him something along the same lines as the groomsmen.

u/Bergolies · 1 pointr/Fitness

Why the fuck do my hands perspire so much? I can't even deadlift as much as I know my body can because the sweat says, "fuck you" to my grip.

Even with this liquid chalk, I can feel the perspiration fighting through the moment I start repping heavy weight.

u/StabbyDMcStabberson · 1 pointr/pics

> Impractical ass fuck?

Acccidently grabbing this instead of lube would be pretty impractical.

u/hermionebutwithmath · 1 pointr/xxfitness

If chalk isn't allowed, you could try liquid grip.

u/Bullshit_To_Go · 1 pointr/saskatoon

Liquid Grip

Easy solution to the least significant of the problems you listed!

I'll admit that the chalk bucket was a big reason I went to Iron Works.

u/WightHouse · 1 pointr/Stronglifts5x5

Don't under estimate your gains. I've been doing 5x5 for a few months now and I've definitely seen my thigh size increase. So much so others are noticing. Anyhow, many runners deal with chafing and there's specific Anti-Chafe Balm you can get. I've never tried it, but back in my Track & Field days we wore compression shorts and this resolved the issue as well.

u/enragedSTD · 1 pointr/ultimate

I'm a huge believer in BodyGlide. I believe it's meant for male runners to lube their nipples, but in college I had a teammate who used it on her feet to prevent blisters, and she was really good, so I started doing it too. Unfortunately I don't think it's made me any better at Ultimate, but on the bright side I haven't gotten any blisters since. I used it on my feet during a week-long backpacking trip last year, also to great effect.

u/feministkillj0y · 1 pointr/TrollXChromosomes

I second the Body Glide recommendation. Great stuff! If I'm not wearing shorts under something I use it.

u/sassafrasAtree · 1 pointr/running

Lubricate. Lubricate, Lubricate.

Obviously, NO cotton, and make sure your lower gear is made to wick sweat away from your skin. Some folks say the pricier compression gear works better (Nike, UnderArmour, etc). Not sure about that, but I spent about $30-40 for mine (if you deal with chafing a lot, you will be willing to pay much more, lol).

I strip my compression shorts off immediately after my run, and try to rinse/shower off as quickly as I can after the run. That seems to help.

Regarding lubrication. You can slather yourself in copious amounts of Vaseline. However, it makes a mess, stains, and wears off fairly quickly. I actually use a combination of three different lubes.

BodyGlide: comes is a deodorant like stick form. Much thicker than all the others, and seems to hold up for a long while. Read through the reviews here:

The second one is SportsSlick, which has a more vaseline like consistency. It has an antibacterial agent and an anti-fungal one too. Also doesn't stain.

Lastly I use Tom's SportShield liquid roll-on. I usually use one of the top two, and then do a once over on the peas & carrots and any other area of concern with this stuff.

I am a slow, novice trail runner, but I am running 5-6 days a week, 4-6 miles a day. Sadly, I have too much experience with chafing, but the above works pretty well for me. Good luck!

u/RightShoeRunner · 1 pointr/running
u/ChronosFT · 1 pointr/popping

Looks like it has multiple causes, like a chafed spot that turned into an infected hair. Once you recover (see doctor), I would recommend a daily application of baby powder when you get out of the shower, or perhaps you should consider using: Body Glide

u/rsix8t · 1 pointr/bodybuilding

Coconut Oil or body glide

I've used body glide for triathlons, half marathons, 5k's and everything in between. It's good stuff. You can even use it on your feet if you run without socks. I frequently use it on my arm pits, HR monitor, and thighs.

They'll have it at your local running store.

u/yoinkmasta107 · 1 pointr/Fitness

Body glide and/or boxer briefs.

u/Ankleshank · 1 pointr/spartanrace

u/V1nc3Vega · 1 pointr/XWingTMG

Near the end of the album I show my cards stored in two binders, one larger one for the ship cards and a smaller one with small sleeves that perfectly fit the upgrade cards.

u/thesolo1 · 1 pointr/pkmntcg

binder I use:link
Sleeves I use: link link

I double sleeve my cards then put them in the binder. Ultra pro sleeves in my opinion are very cheaply made and poor quality.

u/Eluzion · 1 pointr/XWingTMG

This is the best solution I have found period for the cards: (1mb Image)

It hold all my cards both pilots and upgrades with Fantasy Flight Sleeves on all cards. I just put two of the smaller ones sideways in one sleeve pocket and they fit perfectly.

Its avaliable from Amazon here is one such example, just the first one that came up:

u/Legitamte · 1 pointr/Netrunner

I have three of these binders, each of which has 360 slots, which I use to store the cards in number order, arranged thusly:

  • Binder 1: Core Set, Creation and Control, Honor and Profit, Order and Chaos, Data and Destiny (a couple pages left over)
  • Binder 2: Genesis, Spin, and Lunar cycles (fits exactly)
  • Binder 3: SanSan, Mumbad, and Flashpoint cycles (will fit exactly once Flashpoint is complete)

    Cards are stored unsleeved, but of course being in a binder means they might as well be sleeved anyway. Each sleeve is surprisingly roomy, accomnodating ~6 copies in a single slot where necessary (consumer goods, 3-ofs from multiple cores; I do have to store extras from my third core set in a separate box.) I particularly like these binders because they're covered in that fake leather-ish stuff, the page backing is black instead of transparent, and they're not ringed--all the pages are bound in the binder from the beginning--making them take up way less space while also looking nicer. They also have an elastic strap to keep them closed when not in use. My decks are all sleeved, originally all in identical black Ultra Pros to make it easy to swap staple cards between decks, but I'm moving towards sleeving them in faction-colored Dragon Shield matte sleeves, because they're stupidly nice and I have no self-control.

    Numerical sort makes it easier to keep them sorted when returning them to the binder, but it more importantly makes it really easy to fetch them while deckbuilding using netrunnerdb--when viewing a deck, you can sort it by set, including the card number, making it trivial to flip through the binders front to back and pull everything quickly.

    Beyond that, I like binder storage because I like being able to see all the cards at once--it makes finding things easier but it's also nice to appreciate the art on all of the cards, not just the ones in my deck. There's also the /r/oddlysatisfying part of me that likes the fact that one binder holds exactly three cycles of cards, but maybe that's just me.
u/theguruhimself · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I'm planning on buying my first watch, primarily for casual, everyday use. Since I don't want anything too fancy or expensive, I've landed on the Timex Weekender, but I'm still deciding on which color to choose.

I am relatively skinny with a dark-ish brown complexion (I'm Indian). Currently, I have the Olive and Blue/Gray Stripe on my mind, but I'm open to any suggestions. Which color should I choose? Let me know if you have any questions!

u/solomonj87 · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Get a more "mature" looking haircut, anything longer and unkempt always makes you look younger.

Try not to wear anything super trendy. Will help you keep a wardrobe longer (avoid large patterns in shirts, especially pants). Try to keep everything you buy more on the classic, "toned-down" side, i.e. flat color chinos, simple button-down shirts, and get some chukkas or nice shoes. Follow /r/frugalmalesashion for the best sales.

Try to avoid sneakers and athletic shoes.

If you get simple stuff (J Crew, Gap are best for pants IMHO as well as shirts) (Clarks or others for shoes) and take care of them (esp your shoes) you can keep them for a longer time and avoid having to get rid of stuff because a certain trend is over. Most of my button down shirts are several years old and khaki chinos and a pair of plain dark, well-fitting jeans (Levi's are almost always on sale) won't go out of style

ALSO get a watch

and gear an outfit that will let you tuck shirts in if you can, that always makes you seem more mature if you do it right (don't tuck a dress shirt into jeans. avoid dad moves)

u/AtrociousRebutal · 1 pointr/TeenMFA

I don't know too much about it other than it is one of MFA's most frequently suggested watches! If you read through their sidebar guide on watches you'll see that it is one of their recommended brands for a first watch!

I quite like this one, did you have a particular one in mind?

u/RingS1inger · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

How long do these watches generally last? Thinking of picking one up. (On a budget)

Timex Unisex T2N654 Weekender Blue/Gray Stripe Nylon Slip-Thru Strap Watch

u/ChromatinNazi · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I wear throughout the summer just nylon straps unless there is a more fancy event, then I would wear leather/metal. But honestly, I would say the most basic/common colors are moss green, red/blue/white, blue/orange/white and then basically any leather strap you like, since those exist in diverse colors and textures.

As someone else has already recommended, the timex weekender on navy/grey is an excellent start.

Things to be aware of:

  • Different types of straps: Nato, Zulu, Two piece, etc....

  • Strap width: 18mm, 20mm, 22mm.... a.k.a careful buying a strap that doesnt fit your watch
u/paulkinseyscale · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

If you want a white one, you're better off buying this with a purple strap seperately. You get the watch and an extra strap for $32.

u/bipolarpixel · 1 pointr/Watches

Lots of the other weekenders are on sale for 50% off now. If you just want the watch and are going to switch the strap, grab this one for about $12. Expires Dec 6.

u/Arcs_Of_A_Jar · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Some basic characteristics of the most everyday watch you can get: no flashiness, silver-colored metal only if there's any metal, simplicity in design, lightweight, and any kind of band except black leather.

Some of MFA's most often mentioned basics: The Timex Weekender, the Timex Easy Reader, and Citizen Eco Drive(you would probably want to replace the black watch band with a brown leather one).

You're not limited to these, however. Some personal favorites are the Orient Sky, the Orient Union, Skagen, and Seiko.

Don't take my examples as a firm limitation, however, there's literally hundreds of good watches out there.

u/tryingtofigureittout · 1 pointr/streetwear

u/Jerel · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Seems alright to me, however I own one as well and I personally prefer one similar to this one because of the red seconds hand. Its a small detail but I think it makes the watch more aesthetically pleasing. Definitely fine for wearing every day

I just did some googling and found the one I was thinking of. New product that some have managed to import from Japan.

u/RADMFunsworth · 1 pointr/Ultralight

The CNOC Vecto (this is the one I have) has the big fill opening on the opposite side of the bag as the screw top opening, which helps keep the "clean water" side of things away from the "dirty water" side. I also like the softer rubbery feel of the CNOC as compared to the Evernew (I have this one.) I also like the closing mechanism better on the CNOC. Much easier when your hands are cold/wet. Weight and the space they take up in your pack when empty seem pretty comparable.

I do like both of these better than anything else I've used though, because of the wide opening that makes it easier to fill from most sources. They're much easier than something like THIS, for example, or the bags that come with the Sawyer which only have the one small opening.

I use the Humangear Capcap. It works well enough for my purposes, but it is not leak proof. If you turn the bottle upside down with the Capcap on, water will eventually leak through.

You did good with the look though. Most of the time menswear on women means cargo shorts, loose jeans, flannel, and hoodies- on lesbians. Nothing against lesbians, but lots of them don't dress very well. Looking feminine certainly helps, and long hair seals it all.

  1. Quality: Frequently less regulated is an understatement. I challenge anyone to definitively prove the ability to distinguish a regulated municipal line and your bottled water. In fact, I'd bet my right nut you're buying it from a Canadian Tire, or other similar store which buys it from a company using the municipal line anyway.
  2. Convenience: You are packing bottles into a lunch bag or cooler. I'd argue that the labour of picking up a flat of water is equal to or more work than filling reusable bottles from the tap. I did roofing for a summer job a few years ago. Filled up a milk jug with water and brought another canteen to carry around. Jug stayed cool in the cooler box we had. If the ~5 liters somehow wasn't enough, there was always the hose.
  3. Price: Your "awesome deal" is still a rip off. Here is my citation. Assuming 24 500 mL bottles @ the lower side of your range of $2. That is about $0.17/liter of water. Using the citation, Canada pays about $0.31 per cubic meter which is a factor of 1000 times greater. Therefore, average municipal water works out to $0.00031 per liter.

    Unfortunately, your argument can be debunked on all three counts.

    Furthermore, presuming you are not reusing the plastic water bottles from your flats (smart considering the potential health risks surrounding the plastics), a reusable bottle will pay for itself.

    A good bottle can be found between five and ten dollars. That means after drinking between 27 and 30 liters of water, the reusable bottles between to save you money.
