Like a second set of hands to hold necessities.

The WET RIB mounts to your harnessing, keeping a water bottle and a few other essential items close and accessible. Great for late-season hunting when a bladder tube would freeze, this pouch will keep you on the move as you stay hydrated.

  • Connected bottle pocket with top cinch closure
  • Zippered pocket for quick access to key essentials
  • 500D CORDURA® fabric and YKK® zippers

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally the Wet Rib is BACK!!!I had an original Dana wet rib from over a decade ago that has been one of my favorite gear pieces on long hikes like the PCT, AT, and CDT. It finally had too much use and patching wasn't going to fix it so I was thrilled to find Mystery Ranch building them again! This one is of a different design which will take getting used to. I like its attachment points which are so much easier to add to a pack or remove. It's taller and less wide which I'm not sure I'm thrilled about, but I haven't used it enough yet to be sure. It's just different. So far I think it's a great piece and will be recommending them again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential for a walk in the woodsLike many hikers, I went through a hydration bladder stage that lasted too long. Perhaps the worst part of that stage (worse than the funky mouthpiece) was that it interrupted my relationship with my Dana Design Wet Rib. No backpack should be sold without this incredibly handy and useful device, which easily holds your water bottle, several snacks, and a folded map or trail guide -- all without affecting the feel of your pack, because it so ingenuously hangs the weight from both shoulder straps. My DD Wet Rib is still rocking, so I bought this one for my wife, who loves it. Don't worry if it's backordered; it's well worth the wait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have piece of gear.Had a Wet Rib on my old Dana pack for years - it saw a many a trip and a many a mile. The new Wet Rib is the same high quality, albeit with a new look in smokey grey. The lock serves as great place to stow cell phones, maps, compass, and GPS locators - really just about anything you want to have handy.The water bottle compartment is mesh on the bottom to allow for the dispation of condensation and will fit a traditional 32oz wide-mouth Nalgene. Nice re-intro of a classic and handy piece of gear!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of gear!I've owned one of these for years and it's a great addition to my backpacking rig. I can store camera, firearm, snacks, or any other item that I need to access quickly or frequently without having to remove my pack. Even though I use a hydration system, I do use the wet rib for water storage as it holds a one quart nalgene bottle perfectly. If you elect not to carry a bottle in the drawstring pouch, the space can safely accommodate other articles of similar proportion. I especially like the suspension system as the three points of attachment (upper and lower on one shoulder strap and an adjustable, buckled cross strap that extends to the other shoulder strap) keep the wet rib snug and eliminate swinging or swaying while trekking on trails or bushwhacking. Highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome DesignThis thing looks goofy, but it is really useful. I use the zip pouch to carry my sub compact glock for quick emergency access...and snacks. For reference, it fits a full size 1911 with a little extra space for a couple protein bars. The clips are a little strange but they work well and have held up well so far. Bottle pocket is quite large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used one for over 20 years, goes on every packMy version dates to the predecessor company and thus it may be somewhat different from the current version. Mine has been in heavy use on all packs ever since I purchased it. The newer version may have a slightly different shape. This a great way to add 2-6 pounds on the front of your body that would otherwise be on the back, thus providing better load balance. I rarely use the water bottle chamber for its intended purpose. I find that pocket is great for range finders, radios, GPS, food wrappers, whatever. In fact, I archery hunt with a "wet rib" on my hunting pack. In the main compartment of my version of the wet rib, I can easily place a 10*40 binoculars, plus a radio (the shape of the current version may not accommodate objects the same way). It has also held a Canon SLR camera with a 28-70 zoom lens. Seriously. I've been asking Mystery Ranch to re-produce these and I am glad they did

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient access to important itemsI love my new Wet Rib! It is easy to attached to my backpack straps. The quick release clip makes it easy to remove my backpack without having to "unattach" the Web Rib.Convenient storage for those important items that are used frequently, sunglasses, snacks and I love the bottle holder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bit of kit !i wore three of the original ones to shreds, then deconstructed the last of them to pattern my own. now it's worn out it's zipper and i need another. all that is good, and they work Even Better is you sew pockets into them to keep all the stuff not in a heap at the bottom. Dana G. rocks.
