    Evening folks!

    There has been an abundance of good karma here on the forum lately. I always try to pay it forward and keep the positive energy flowing. :dblthumb:

    I am approaching the end of my third decade on this amazing planet so I figured I would offer two identical items up. Up for grabs is a pair of Helikon-Tex E&E Pouches.... also known as a Canteen Pouch seen here: https://www.helikon-tex.com/en_usd/mo-u03-cd-e-e-pouch-u-03.html

    The exact ones are seen here:

    IMG_4953.JPG

    (the HPG gear above is staying with me)

    They are a well thought out piece of kit. :dblthumb:

    One entry per person. Just say "I am in" "I am in and thirsting for a hydration pouch" or some variation of that. If you are not in, please feel free to enter on behalf of someone who has not entered. :cool:

    I will let this run for about a week.... until the 25th of June. A day after my 28th birthday. :)

    The winner will be chosen at random.

    Thanks for being the best community around. Made up of the best people. Offering the most to learn along the way! :35: :35: :35:

    ~Mike

    Nicely done my friend, nicely done. Not in since I just won a sweet knife thanks to @Mr. Tettnanger, but Helikon-Tex makes great gear. Someone is going to get an awesome kit upgrade.

    Happy early birthday!

    I am in and thirsty for an awesome pouch! :dblthumb:

    I have been working on getting a coffee kit together and every morning I put my stuff into a plastic shopping bag when I leave for work. This pouch looks like just the ticket for what I need.

    Thanks for the opportunity, good luck to all.. excellent Gaw @M.Hatfield :35:

    Really nice GAW!
    I'd be in like Flynn if I hadn't just purchased a knockoff pouch.
    Those pouches are the ones shown holding the French Mess/everything to build fire Kit video I posted a while back.
    Someone will be getting some handy pouches :dblthumb:

    First off, Happy Birthday.

    Secondly, those are really neat and a generous GAW. I would love to say "I'm in" for myself, but I have too much stuff as it is. As such, I'm saying "I'm in and thirsting to give these two bags to @alukban and his son, so they have a matching set of gear".

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    Happiest of Birthdays and fondest wishes for an engaging next stroll around the Circle. Not in in deference to bacpacjac's generous entry on my granddaughter's behalf. Thanks to all who make this forum the BEST!

    Hey there @bacpacjac! I realized I didn't thank you for entering Ruby Ember (actually her birth name which I think is so cool!). She thanks you also. We're hoping to go on an overnight camp together early next week to tey and get some woods time before the Burning Bans start. She'd be stoked to win this and is amazed that others have her interests at heart. You're awesome! From Cascadia.

    I'm in! Heck, why not! I've got some HPG canteen holders I'll do a GAW on if I keep these, or I'll ask @M.Hatfield to pick a second place and pass them on if it turns out I like the open-top ones more.
