    Talking FOUND: My soul for an Evernew Water Carry !

    Hello all... Long time member, infrequent poster...

    I leave for the PCT April 19 and plan on using the Sawyer Squeeze for the the desert section. As some of you may be aware the water bags that come with the squeeze are, lets just say, of very poor quality. Through the ever resourcefulness of the Backpacking community it has been deemed the Evernew Water Carry is the perfect match for this filter. Unfortunately Evernew is a Japanese company that was severely affected by the Tsunami and there is debate on weather or not they will be able to produce new product before the start of the 2013 hiking season, if at all.

    So... My call goes out to you, my hiking/hammock brethren. Does anybody have a 1.5L or 2.0L bag they are willing to part ways with ??? I'm willing to pay over retail if that's what it takes. Thank you all in advance.

    Wish I could help you but have you checked with TrailDesigns? It didn't indicate if they were out or not. I know Gossamergear is out of stock and so is Lawson...who knows, TD might still have some.

    Thanks for the help Mangus. I have contacted all the suppliers of the water carry that I've found and they have all they told me the same thing. Hopefully one of our other hangers might have one siting around that they wouldn't mind parting ways with.

    Evernew bags

    I have two 0.9L bags, not what your looking for but I'll part with them to help you out. I bought them a while back from MLD (mountainlaureldesigns.com). Also Gossamergear.com, I don't know if they're in stock.

    If you are really in a jam, I read somewhere that if you replace the 1/8 inch rubber washer in the Sawyer with a 1/16 inch neoprene washer, the platy bottle threads will fit deeper and therefore fit better. It might be worth a try. The Evernews are really tough to find.

    jmsdgrf, weaver2469... Thank you for your help ! Looks like E.A.Y. is my savoir. As I mentioned I don't post on the forum to often but I'm very active in the backpacking community and it never ceases to amaze me the willingness of one backpacker to help another.

    PM sent on the 0.9L bags, if you are still interested in selling them.
