- Wonderfully lightweight
- Fits comfortably
- Has plenty of pockets
This backpack stores up to 1.5 liters of water in a lightweight, breathable mesh fabric. It also has storage pockets to carry anything else that’s needed, plus chest and waist straps for those moments of heavy hiking.
The mouth piece presents a few minor issues for some users. Have your wife test this out for access and drip issues early so you can send this bag back for a replacement before her first big hike.
Features: When camping or hiking is on the agenda all summer long, this is the sort of gift you want to give your wife. We’re fans of the breathable fabric and the pockets for carrying other essentials. It only carries 1.5 liters of water, so it’s not meant for crazy-long hikes, but that also means it’s lightweight enough to throw over your shoulders for a long bike ride in the summer sun. The water bladder has a large screw top which allows you to tuck ice cubes into it. And, the straps are wonderfully adjustable.
If your wife thinks camping is more fun than hiking, you might try this Handpresso coffee maker which really makes mornings better. And, if it’s all about long days down at the beach, this solar USB charger keeps phones and Kindles charged for perfect relaxation.
Price: On top of all that, this gift is inexpensive enough that you can spoil your wife with something else while you wait for spring.
