Gear

Some of our favorite gear. We use them on the road, while traveling and adventuring.
Aquamira Pressurized Hydration Reservoir
We have been using these reservoirs since they were 'Geigerrig' for hiking and also everyday nomad life. There are the most durable and effective water bladders we have tested.
We started hanging them in the backseat of the Peace Love Car for easy access to water. In SlackerVan we installed one inside the fridge. Added a permanent hose coming out of the fridge, so we can drink cold water with ease.

We use this bottle and filter pretty much everywhere we go. We enjoy having the ability to change the filter based on where we are.
