I had to read the headline twice when it ran by my RSS reader tonight, but it’s absolutely not a typo:
According to Google Calculator, 45 litres is a hair under 12 US gallons. Water weighs about eight pounds per gallon, so we’re talking a 100-lb backpack when it’s full.
Isn’t this taking the Camelbak idea a wee bit too far? Does anyone really want to carry around nearly a half-barrel of beer on his back?
Oh wait. I think I just found the market for this ridiculous contraption.
