I finally got enough #vitality points to cash them in for #amazon gift cards to score this @ospreypacks #zealot 3 liter #hydrationpack before a group of us take on #flatiron#superstitionmountains on October 1st. I'm also super excited to get this pack as #mountainbike season is ramping back up as this pack is truly designed with the #mtb#adventurer in mind. I must've compared 20 packs across all brands over the past 2 weeks so I'm thrilled that the hunt is over and my kill includes the below features that made me pull the trigger.
1. 3L reservoir - new improved design
2. Cargo space accessed on the shoulder and waist straps to avoid removing the pack for stuff you want on the fly
3. Cargo space with a tool pouch, soft sleeve for my glasses, helmet clip and ample storage for a long day trip
4. Breathable air space backing & hip straps
5. Internal support frame
6. Material and design as this has a built in rain cover and great strap system - the Orange is a cool color
7. Brand and price point for what you get compared to other brands
Sometimes your trips just get messy. This two day adventure was supposed to involve a quick five mile hike, a lake, and an easy camping spot the night before. It turned into running over a cat on the freeway, pulling off the side of the road to sleep literally anywhere at 2am, getting stuck in a lightening hail storm on top of a mountain that we had to run from, and of course the classic flat tire. And through all of that we were giggling the entire time. Because, Mother Nature is fickle and sometimes things just aren't supposed to go right. You know when it comes to nature, it's really not about rain or shine. It's just about getting out there. And as Yvon would say, "it's not an adventure until everything goes wrong." #optoutside
Humid runs makes me apart of the #sportsbrasquad . For shorter runs, I run in @brookswomen fiona bra. I normally don't run with my hydration pack on for short runs but humidity was high and I tend to go through liquids a lot faster. For details on my picks for affordable sports bras, best bras for large boobs for running and much more hit the link in my bio. #fithairoadtonyc17
Throwback to exploring #bulgaria with @bike_ventures and @myborovets. This was one of the most epic adventures we ever had, riding near Musala peak and finishing in #borovets Bike Park. Delicious singletracks and the views didn't suck as well !
