Hydrastash® Wins Gear Junkie's Gear of the Year Award

Top Picks: GearJunkie ‘Gear of the Year’ 2018

It’s the end of 2018, and, as is our annual tradition, it's time to look back at the best gear we tested this year. Of the hundreds of products GearJunkie staff and contributors reviewed, these items stood out as some of the best.

It’s a simple idea, but 686 had a wonderful “aha!” moment with the GLCR Reservoir Jacket with Hydrastash. It simply put a water bladder (the Hydrastash system) in the powder skirt and a hose that leads to the mouth. For downhill skiers, it gives a totally new way to carry and consume water. It worked great in our initial testing, and we wonder if we’ll see this concept expand to more products in the near future.
