Does anyone have any experience/reviews for backcountry water filters? We are heading out to Colorado this fall for an elk hunting trip...

Good question, and it has been asked before.

Does anyone have any experience/reviews for backcountry water filters? We are heading out to Colorado this fall for an elk hunting trip and are planning on backpacking in and camping. I don't want to be bringing in any more water weight than I have to...

Spammer banned :happydance: but I'll leave the thread open.

Compass Box Peat Monster.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't think Ardbeg was the backbone here. There's no mistaking the Ardbeg flavor and it is my favorite whisky. But the blenders at Compass Box (they don't distill but only blend to make their taste in whisky) have made something amazing.

It has the phenolic smoke I love of Ardbeg and the minty liftoff of Lagavulin but there is a foil. Unlike single malts from Islay it really has a fruit forward middle where I get citrus and there is this beautiful malt nougat flavor that carries through.

I wish I could explain the love of Islay whisky. Not for beginners. It's a gritty dram for those of use who like kippers over a smoldering fire. But the few of us who find a Chardonnay middle to Ardbeg will get this. I still question.. is it apricot or grapefruit?

At the end of the day if you like peaty smoky Scotch give Compass Box Peat Monster a try. Will I give up Ardbeg 10 for it? No. Lagavalun 16? No. But it does show what a blended whisky can do to highlight different points of the source Scotch. And at a reasonable price.

Very robust.  I've never had a problem with any of my Samsung SSDs, internal SATAIII, M.2, or these externals.  Money well spent!

You can get these little guys in 500Gb capacity for $100.  I use them with MacOS, Windows, Linux, and Chromebooks without any problems with both USB-C and USB-A cables.

They pretty robust being Solid state?

You serious? This leather work is fine!

BTW,  how flexible I left is this case? Will it conform with movement,  will it print?
Thanks, but I see that the corners aren't fluid and I have a lot of tool marks.  But I'm pretty happy with it, being as I've only made a couple of things so far.

Yes, it prints on my pocket.  I put it in tool side towards my body.  That way is looks like I have a wallet or a notepad in my pocket.  But it is noticeable.

I've carried it all this week and find that while the black one was too floppy, this one is a bit too stiff.  Next version will be thinner leather so it flexes a bit.  Once leather is wet formed, it gets fairly stiff.  I'll post when I make new versions.

wait - if you're on the internet for email, web browsing, etc. then you also have access to your cloud data.

Get a small capacity SSD, 256GB or whatever and use your online storage of choice.
That'll take less battery life and be considerably faster in most cases.

Yes this is right as long as you have a lot of unlimited internet access.
But being in a remote off grid area I have to ask if this is so. Otherwise you will want more space so you dont use up all of your bandwidth in accessing storage.
Not trying to be a jerk, just need more data before I am comfortable making a total decision  ;)

My concern with Chromebooks is they don't have a lot of storage on them do they?
Aren't they designed to work with the cloud for most of the storage?
Kinda tough to do if off grid.

Just a thought

A USB external drive solves that problem for very large (terabyte) storage.  Also, most come with a microSD slot as well so you can easily add several hundred gigs of internal storage that way.
