      Long Term Report

      Over the past two months I have used the pouch to carry my beverages
      (tea bags, hot cocoa packets, lemonade powder, etc), lighter, spork
      or spoon, and other small items that I did not want to get lost in my
      pack or bear canister.

      I've moved away from using the included bottles, as the inserts have
      been difficult to remove and I've managed to tear two more of them.
      They have also proven difficult to clean out, if I try to pack
      something that's a little thick or sticky.

      The pouch has been jammed into small places in my bear canister
      repeatedly. The plastic is still clear and pliable, and the zipper
      still works smoothly. The pouch makes a convenient organizational
      tool. It's nice to have something clear - makes it easy to see what
      I've got left to barter for a packet of instant coffee, should I run
      short.

      Summary:

      Likes: I still like the light weight of the pouch and bottles. I'm
      impressed by the durability of the pouch. The bottles with inserts
      haven't leaked and dispense contents easily.

      Dislikes: I find the inserts are difficult to remove without tearing
      the plastic. I wish the bottles were more leak-proof without the
      inserts in place so I could fill them with contents that won't fit
      through the small hole. The bottles have been so difficult to clean
      and maintain without damaging the inserts that I have started to use
      other containers with the pouch.

      My thanks to Sea to Summit and BackpackGearTest for the opportunity
      to review the Clear ZipTop Pouch. This concludes my review.

      Hi Lori, nice wrap up. No edits, just one suggestion. Too bad the bottles were not quite up to snuff but otherwise sounds like a neat piece of gear. I think

        Hi Lori, nice wrap up. No edits, just one suggestion. Too bad the bottles were not quite up to snuff but otherwise sounds like a neat piece of gear. I think you know the drill, but just in case, don't forget to delete the test copy.

          Thanks for catching the stray comma, and for your help on this series. All fixed, uploaded, deleted, etc. See you next time, maybe. Lori
