Many of you probably figured out by now that Elliot has a new backpack in this latest season. I was curious to find out exactly what backpack it is, and after scouring the web, I think I found a couple of possible matches. First of all, it's definitely not a GoRuck GR1. Although it's a cool backpack, it has no compression straps, no chest strap, and has a different form factor with less main pockets. Tactical Scorpion Gear - Military 3 Day Assault Molle Backpack. It has the same form factor, same number of hydration pack loops and the same little plastic tabs that hold the chest straps, as well as the same zipper pull on the diagonal pocket (no paracord). BARSKA Loaded Gear GX-200 Tactical Backpack. It has the same form factor, same number of hydration pack loops, but has an extra "Loaded" logo that is not on the show (and the stitch marks wouldn't match). Also, not the same plastic tabs on the chest straps and not the same zipper pull. Highland Tactical Stealth 3-Day backpack. 2, but has a logo on the last MOLLE webbing part. So basically, this is what I think Elliot is wearing, based on the info I have now. Hope this helps whoever is searching for this.
It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Adventures like that stay with you forever. I have the same water filter and was wondering if you've ever filtered really disgusting water with it. For instance, stagnant water, water found near urban areas, or water near livestock. I used it on some almost stagnant water on a very dry riverbed. The taste of the water was so bad, I couldn't swallow it. I guess my question is, is how much do you trust it? Have you ever had such questionable water that you added a chemical treatment on top of filtering it? I know it will filter out all bacteria and cysts, but under what circumstances should I worry about it not filtering out viruses? Hi Deb. Thanks for commenting.
