Water Know-How: Which Filter Do I Bring?

The difference between a trip to remember, and one you can’t wait to forget can come down to one thing. And that thing is what so many people stress about and agonize over when planning a trip. Having a way to treat water allows you or your group to enjoy your surroundings and your company. Choosing the right water filter can be daunting when there are so many options, but your decision can be made if you are able to answer a few simple questions.

Water Plays Tricks: How to Choose the Right Filter

 Ali Carr is a an outdoor gear expert, adventure travel writer, and television personality. Her writing has appeared in national publications such as Outside magazine, Men's Journal, ESPN.com, SunsetGear PatrolTravel + Leisure, REI.com and more. She was an editor at Outside for six years when she had a chance to test the Katadyn BeFree. This is her story.

It was late fall when 12 of us decided to head into New Mexico’s Pecos Wilderness for a weekend in the mountains. The Aspens had started to turn golden, a few wildflowers clung onto the dog days of summer and the surrounding peaks were nearly snow-free.


     

Food

Thru-Hiking Happy Place: Packing for the PCT

Sitting here, less than 48 hours from starting my northbound thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail, it hits me how real this is (I mean, I just shaved my legs for the last time in over 140 days). I don’t have the same type of anxiety and emotions as when I started my first long-distance hike, which was on the Appalachian Trail in 2013. I’m not necessarily nervous; I’m more so remembering what it means to walk for 5 months in the woods, and am anxious to take that first step.
     

Cooking Equipment

Building the Ultimate Van Life Kitchen with Neill Drake

While compact camping gear is designed primarily for the trails, having a complete mobile kitchen that can fit in a small day bag has more benefits than just getting lost in nature. I've been rebuilding my van at a shop on Chile for the last two months and the only food nearby is Pollo Asado and mediocre Chinese food. After a week or so of those two...it got real old, real quick.
