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.

When I bought my Terraplane 30 years ago, I added two of Dana's wet ribs, pockets that attach to the shoulder straps in front, where you can easily carry and access your GPS, camera, binocs, bars, sunscreen, bug dope, bear spray, whatever -- plus a liter of water in each. My wife has been wanting one, but DD has been out of business for twenty years. Now I find them available again from Mystery Ranch, but only for the one side so far. I hope Dana brings back the other side, or maybe the long wet rib.
A wet rib transfers some of the weight to your front; two liters of water in two wet ribs is 4-1/2 pounds, more if you use insulated flasks. If you go solo like me, you won't have to take off your pack every time you want water. It's the best thing that ever happened to the best backpack I ever owned. Thanks, Dana!
I use this every time I use my pack. It is the most useful accessory I have for it. Whether I pack snacks, water, bear spray, or any other item that I use on the trail that I want quick access for this is perfect.
I used the wet web when I thru hiked the AT over 20 years ago. It is such an amazing product. I have used it on all of my backpacking adventures ever since my thru hike. I was hoping to purchase the wet web for my children's packs since I am no fan of the new hydro systems. I am sad to see they are not being made currently. It would be nice to have a choice on how I carry my water. If they ever make the wet web again they are amazing. I will buy 3 when they start making them. Soon I hope!
