Has this ever happened to you? (And what to do about it?)
I hiked up a crest (about 7600 from 6000 or so). Anyway at the top, well actually not sure where but that's the best guess, I lost a water bottle from a side mesh pocket. I wasn't too well the next day, but got over it ok.
Anyway, I definitely do NOT want to do that again. I think it slid out at some point.
There are side compression straps could hold the bottle better, but you have to take the pack off to drink. I thought of maybe putting velcro straps across, so it might stay in better and also be able to be removed easier.
Any thoughts on this? I know you guys (gals) have good ideas.
