Grip'enGo hydration system fits most bottles, lets you ditch the water bladder

Water bladders are often impractical for use in the outdoors because they can be difficult to fill, clean, and store properly. With a screw-on head that turns any water bottle into a hydration pack, the Grip’enGo hydration system is looking to make water bladders obsolete. Whether you prefer water, a flavored product, or soda, the Grip’enGo helps keep you hydrated without weighing you down. 

Traditional go-to hydration systems for backpacking trips and outdoor expeditions, water bladders are bulky, prone to leakage, and susceptible to residue buildup. If you’re thinking of transitioning between water and soda while you’re out on the trail, you might as well plan on bringing two separate water bladders. The Grip’enGo easily transitions between different types of beverages without requiring extensive cleaning.

The Grip’enGo hydration system functions as a lightweight, practical alternative to bulky bladders. The product is comprised of a standard hydration tube that connects between a mouthpiece and an innovative screw-on head that fits easily onto a beverage bottle.

The plastic head is ribbed, easy to grip and features a unique locking mechanism with four arms that connect securely to the mouth of any small bottle. A threaded plug ensures a snug fit and a medical-grade check valve protects against leakage. The system includes the Grip’enGo head and a 1000 millimeter length draw tube with a bite valve. The entire package weighs only three grams, making it the lightest hydration system on the market.

The Grip’enGo is durable, compact, and easy to use. It can be tucked away into any small backpack compartment when not in use and is easy to assemble, no tools required. The simple design is equipped for use with any small mouth bottle product, including popular brands such as Smartwater, Propel, Coke, Pepsi, Fiji, Evian, and Aquafina.

The most convenient feature? The Grip’enGo system requires no special hydration reservoir — simply slip the bottle into your pack, connect the draw tube, and go. You can purchase a Grip’enGo hydration system for $22 on the product’s Kickstarter campaign page

Why you need to buy this fantastic cordless lawn mower today
Greenworks 16-inch 40V cordless lawn mower

If you're shopping for cheap lawn mower deals for a small to medium-sized lawn, you can't do better than this Greenworks 16-inch cordless lawn mower. Amazon dropped a hot deal on this battery-operated machine, discounting the 40V Greenworks mower by 20%. Instead of the normal $299, save $61 with this sale to start mowing without gasoline or awkward extension cords for just $238. Don't delay with this limited time sale.

Greenworks manufactures a range of  cordless and corded electric lawn mowers, but the 16-inch 40-volt cordless model hits the sweet spots for function, convenience, and cost. Here's why. Greenworks has cordless mowers with cutting decks ranging from 13 inches to 21 inches in diameter. A machine with a smaller deck is lighter and less work to push around your yard than one with a wider deck, but the more narrow the cutting deck, of course, the more back-and-forth you'll need to do to finish mowing your lawn. At 37.5 pounds, the Greenworks 40V is no big deal to push and uses your time and energy more efficiently than either the smaller or larger models.
