My name is Brent Baade I am in a national program called Project Lead The Way which helps students like me to excel and prepare for careers in mathematics, science, and engineering. For the class I am enrolled in, my group has to find, justify, design, and then test a uniquely individual research project. We are doing our project on backpacking and the better use of water container or bottles while backpacking.
We have done research that shows problems with the current designs for carrying water while backpacking. We have found many people that say it is hard to reach their water bottles out of their backpacks. This is very annoying, as many of you may know, but hydration packs are any better. They often leak or break. Also, when you are using one, you cannot check how much water is left in the pack. This can lead to running out of water unexpectedly, which can lead to dehydration.
If you have any opinions on the matter, please post a response or send us an email. Any response will greatly help us and we would greatly appreciate your help.
Thank you all and have a happy holiday!
