Review: Mountainsmith

Fifty Sense Seal of Approval This company is known for its backpacks, daypacks and fanny packs. What we found is the wonderful products besides these areas that the reader may not be aware of, so we will start with unusual products from a well known company. Check out what they are doing for the environment while you are at their site! Can you believe a totally recycled backpack!

Rolling Zip-Top Tote Large
In planning a backpacking trip, one necessity is staying organized. Most of the time, we travel a good distance before starting the trip and combine backpacking with car camping. We have been searching for a way to organize our equipment before leaving home, yet also have it accessible in case we need something for car camping. We have found the perfect storage container.

First always is ease in travel. This tote has easy rolling in-line skate wheels with a telescoping pull handle. At our age, we are aware of weight all the times! With the custom molded durable bottom that is waterproof and abrasion-resistant, and tie-down loops to keep secure in the vehicle, we know it will hold up. We love the laminated see-thru mesh zip-top lid, and the top padded haul handles.

The six interior flat pockets and bright interior lining make it easy to find equipment. We then add a couple of the basic cubes and are ready to get and stay organized! It holds 5500 cubic inches and when the zipper is open, the entire bag is exposed, so we can be excited instead of overwhelmed planning our multiple use trips.

Basic Cube
Simple, yet functional, the Basic Cube has a fully weather-proof interior with a zip-top closure to protect and keep your gear organized. It easily fits into Modular Hauler, yet can be use separately with a haul handle for easy carrying. The see-thru laminated mesh top panel with the clear label sleeve makes it so easy to remember and see what is in each cube. Since it comes in a variety of colors, we are able to become better organized. This is an ideal addition to all the totes.

K-9 Cube
Anyone who has a dog, usually travels with their pet and loves to spoil their companion. The K-9 Cube makes traveling with your pet simple. Keep organized with the interior dividers, separate food container, and collapsible dishes for your furry friend’s food and water. The drop down food tray even has Velcro holders for the food and water dish so nothing blows away. Don’t forget to stop and play with the included soft sided Frisbee!

Cyber II - Recycled
Mountainsmith has come up with camera cases for every type of outdoor enthusiast. Optimal protection for the compact digital cameras with internal memory card sleeve that is fleece-lined and padded. and It is now made with PET recycled body fabric. The medium size is only 4.23 ounces, yet large enough to carry the camera, extra memory cards and the battery charger. There is still room for maps and small essentials. The belt attachment is Velcro and wide enough for a backpack waist strap. How nice to be able to take it off the pack and use the detachable shoulder strap when in town or on a day trip. Finally, we have a camera case that can be handy for pictures anytime.
