Review: Mountain Laurel Designs Soloomid XL

In practice, however, I never actually wrap it up. Instead, at the start...

Design There are three pockets in total. Two side pockets and a snap pocket on the back. The latter is huge self-draining and have a loop connection on the right side of the 2019 model, which is perfect for hooking keys or a compass lanyard. Their vertical design is useful when fording deep rivers since it reduces drag in the water; it is also useful when swimming. When wearing the Baggies, you may leave your undies at home. I've generally advocated going commando while hiking over the years, but I kept the liner in two of my three pairs of...
