Keeping Our Body Warm with a Baselayer and Hydrated with Platypus

This Platypus Soft Bottle is perfect to take with us anywhere we go to keep us hydrated. This awesome Platypus Soft Bottle has a dual-valve Hyperflow cap that allows us to easily bite to drink, and control the flow of the water. I like that we don't have to bite the valve hard, and even if anyone bites the bottle it does not get bite marks even when it is bitten on. If we do bite it hard, it could cut off the flow of the water. The travel valve shuts down when we twist it, so the water does not leak when the bottle is under pressure.

This BPA free hydration pack is made with laminate film and uses durable urethane and food-grade, taste-free polyethylene interiors, which is clean, green, and flexible. It holds 1 litre of water that we can enjoy conveniently during all types of travel. This reusable bottle uses less energy and materials. This bottle is 80% less in weight than other hydration bottles, and fits in perfectly to fit drink holders, round or flat pockets, and all types of hand sizes. We found it very compact and convenient to take with us when we went on hiking trips.
It also makes a great ice pack perfect for a steady source of cold, refreshing hydration. To freeze it lay it half-full on its side in the freezer with all air purged, do not over-fill as the water expands when it freezes and this can burst the bottle.
When the bottle is empty we can easily roll it up and fit it anywhere we want. I think this bottle is wonderful to keep us hydrated, and take along on all types of adventures from camping to winter sports.
Helly Hansen Warm baselayer gives our body warmth and moisture management at a professional level. This Kids HH Warm Set baselayer made in Sri Lanka, and designed and developed in Norway in 1877 to abide by the specification made by mountain professionals, ocean racers and adventurers is very useful for all types of outdoor adventures, especially when the weather gets cooler.
My daughter really enjoys wearing the baselayer during the chilly mornings when she does her track practices. It allows her to do the activities comfortably, and keep her body dry and warm. 

The 2-layer construction of this baselayer has the Lifa Stay Dry Technology, which allows the sweat to move away from the skin, as it is hydrophobic. It retains 40 times less moisture than polyester, and keeps our skin dry. Lifa has a natural resistance to bacteria, and will not retain odour. The other layer insulated this clothing is 100% merino wool, which pulls the moisture away from the body. Although, the baselayer has merino wool it is hypoallergenic because of Lifa Stay Dry Technology that is next to our skin and provides a zero itch factor. I think these features make the baselayer perfect for all types of activities. After all, staying dry is important to be comfortable and warm.

  5. I think it's great that the hydration bottle holds a full litre. When I read that you bite the 'spout' to get water it made me think the bottle wouldn't last long before the bite marks made it need to be replaced so I like that you mentioned that that doesn't happen. I also love that it fits in a cup holder since so many don't.

  31. Love the soft bottle. I think water bottles, in general, are good. But if it is collapsible when empty, all the better, since it means less weight and space wasted when it's carried.
