Just to avoid the taste of plastic and rubber – forgoing the hydration you desperately need on a climb, backpacking trip or rigorous hike?

And there it is… boom. The undeniably most unappetizing sensation of flavor ever tasted by man – plastic. Or is it the smooth taste of rubber? Either way – the grossness is unbearable. Good news. We have a solution which is fast, easy and unsurpassed.
