    Indeed we would loose the control we have now, and I can't see what we'd gain: it's not like we need access to capital particularly. We are entirely debt-free at this point and are beholden to no one...

    I've used a two-litre MSR Dromedary® Bag quite a bit with the Synapse - I'd assume if that works so would your Platypus. I slide it into the center bottle pocket and just let the hose poke out of the...

    I'm not sure where you are seeing the Size 1 and the Size 6 as almost the same - perhaps there's a typo somewhere on the site but they are quite different.

    I'll second Maverick's opinion here: I hike 50 - 100 miles every month with the Smart Alec, and while I sweat, the Smart Alec's back panel works fine.

    Maverick's got it exactly: the front will distort if we put the "O" rings on the front seam. And it's not just the weight of what's been snapped to the "O" ring but anything else that gets...
