JibHead's Bio

I was real lucky many many moons ago how I was introduced to snowboarding. I had an Uncle that worked for Avalanche Snowboards and use to send my siblings and I free boards to check out a new sport.

I was only 11 or 12 at the time and nobody I asked had even seen one of these planks of joyous wonderment. I remember all the weird looks I got from the masses of kids and their parents staring at me riding this odd looking thing down a sledding hill in my moon boots, neon snow pants and whatever old, worn out, tore up jacket I threw on at the time. It was like I was a being from another planet and I sucked up and enjoyed every second of it. It was years before the resorts even considered allowing snowboards on their terrain. When they finally did Brighton was one of the first and I have loved them every season since for it.

I love this bladder. I have used just about every brand out there now and this is the only one that didn't give the water a bad taste for weeks. I heard you didn't have to wash it with anything special just rinse and go. I thought ya right but I tried it anyways. Gave it a quick rinse out with water then filled it up and no bad taste at all.

The Features YO!!
* The bite valve on this thing is also much better than the cambelback ones.
* The hard spine that runs down it really helps also. Nothing I hate more hiking around is when my water would get low in my other bladders and they would sag causing it difficult for the last bit of water to come out. The spine helps ensure you get that very last drop with ease.
* This thing is also super tough and I'm not worried about tearing it while ducking a tree like I did with a competitors brand.
* Nice wide easy to fill mouth and screws tight.

Bottom line.... I have replaced all my other bladders in my pack, my fiances pack and my families packs with these and will never look back. I'm so happy Osprey teamed up with Nalgene to make this happen.

I bought this helmet as a present for my Brothers birthday. He recently put the helmet to a full test by taking a really nasty spill and smashing his head into the ground. The helmet was destroyed but his head had not a scratch. Needless to say I'm a Giro fan for life.
