Win an Innate Water Carrier

For the November Contest, Hiking Lady has partnered up with Innate Gear! For 4 Fridays in November, Innate will be selecting one lucky Hiking Lady reader to win an Aqueduct Water System. There will be 4 winners in total!
Be sure to enter for a chance to win one of these outdoor water carriers to take along on your next camping trip or give as a gift to someone special this holiday season.

About the Aqueduct

The Innate Aqueduct is a compact, durable water carrier designed for carrying and dispensing water when you’re camping. The roll top keeps out dirt and debris, and the handle makes it easy to carry. It is constructed of food-grade materials, so you can fill it with treated water and keep it at camp during your stay. Instead of trekking back and forth to the water source at the campground, you can fill up the aqueduct and keep it with you at your campsite.

Innate Aqueduct

Where to buy: Mountain Equipment Co-Op

  • Dimensions: 50cm high, 25cm diameter.
  • Weight: 7.2 ounces/204.6 grams
  • Capacity: 4 gallons, 15 Liters

  3. Dave L. says:

    Teaching my wife the joys of backpacking. The INNATE AQUEDUCT is the perfect product to show her “roughing it” in the mountains has it’s perks too. We love your web site !

  4. Lisa says:

    My husband & I spend many hours day hiking in the
    Wasatch mountains of Utah. We recently made the decision to work a bit less (practice retirement) and play a bit more. We plan to start taking overnight and weekend back-packing trips and the Innate water carrier would be an excellent addition to our campsite.

  5. Innate says:

  6. Alison says:

    I live in a rented apartment in Vermont and we get a lot of winter storm power outages. I’d use it to keep a back-up supply of drinking water handy.

  7. Innate says:

  8. Bryan L. says:

    I’d like to have one of these for when the power goes out and the electric pump doesn’t work. It would be handy to carry this out to the manual pump and haul a bunch of water in one trip. Would also be useful car camping with the family.

  9. Philip Lexow says:

    Found your site via twitter suggestions (I’m guessing it was our pseudonyms).
    I’m always looking for quality gear! Thanks!

  10. Hip Hiker says:

    I am new to Hiking, In the Last 2 years I have had both hips replaced, since August of this year I have covered 180 miles, and plan on doing the AT in 2014.So not only am i gathering my gear, butwould like to be able to inspire others as the Hiking Lady does, along with reveiwing products… So I would love to add this product to my growing collection. Thank You. Sharon

  11. Dottie says:

    I’d love to give one of these to my grandsons, who are boy scouts and avid campers. Oh, I’d like one for myself, as well! They appear to be light-weight and easy to handle!

  12. Steve v. says:

    check out my link and you will see why I follow hiking lady! I’m keen to get my hands on a collapsible water carrier like this because I’m being laid off on March and part of my “sample of retirement” journey will take me into Utah, Arizona and New Mexico,… I’d like to have this in the trunk of my car for semi-mobile hydration.

  13. Jamie Klein says:

    I’d love to give this to my sister for Christmas! She and her boyfriend do a lot of “boat in” camping and this would save space on the way out. I love the strap too – she has some carpal tunnel issues and he has some back issues… this would be so much better than lugging their current plastic container up the bank!

  14. Darla T says:

    I have 2 sons that are in BoyScouts, and the BoyScout Venturing program, one is an Eagle Scout, the other needs a couple of merit badges and his Eagle project and he will be an Eagle Scout as well. I am deeply involved in Scouting, both at the unit level and on our local Council level, currently my main position is that of CubScout Round Table Commissioner. We do a tremendous amount of hiking, camping and backpacking. This would be an AWESOME carrier to have for use on our outings!! I’m certain if I have one and others see it, they’ll want one too!! Word of mouth sales pitches are some of THE best “free marketing” any product can get!! Thanks!! Darla

  15. arlene t. says:

    I want the Innate Water Carrier because I’m lazy & if I can fill the Innate Water Carrier just once I’d be so happy! Looks cool & great. Hope I win!

  16. Kristy says:

    I really enjoy reading Hiking Lady because of how inspirational & useful it is! One of the reasons why I would love an Innate Aqueduct is because my friends and I always end up worrying about water during our backpacking adventures. It would allow my friends and I to really enjoy our adventures! Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Richard F says:

    I can see it already. Pumping in a whole load of filtered water at a stream, and then just leave it hanging at a tree at my campsite. After a long hike, I’m usually not hungry, but instead just sip water till much later in the evening. Not having to keep pumping up my bottles would be sweet. How small does this roll down into when empty?

  18. Terry Tyson says:

    This appears to be a smart, practical design. I will be buying one or two for sure, but if I win one of these puppies, I’m sending it to a relief worker pal who’s helping folks who were the victim of superstorm Sandy. He’ll find a worthy recipient.

  19. Sarah A says:

    I like to camp at a campground with water, but its not good. It would be nice to have a carrier that would fold up nice and neat, so we could have our perfect hard water from home and we wopuldnt have the gallon jugs to dispose of.

  20. Tiffannie says:

    What a great design. I like that it opens wide to fill and has a strap to hang or carry. Thanks the the giveaway Hiking Lady!

  21. Kathy blackwelder says:

    I’m just starting to build a supply oh hiking/backpacking gear and this item would be a wonderful addition. Thanks!

  22. Elizabeth McGuire says:

    Love knowing there are better ways to bring water with me instead of jugs of plastic. Being in nature and knowing that I don’t have to pack out with plastic I have to recycle is a much better choice. Thanks for the great tip.

  23. Innate says:

    Thanks to ALL for participating!
    This first week’s winner is (drum roll) ….Sandy Barlett!
    YOU WIN! YES, we look forward to hearing what you think, I’m sure these will beat those plastic containers you are lugging!
    Please contact us at with your ship to information so we can get this out to you!

    We’ve got 3 more for you! Keep posting for a chance to win next Friday!

  24. Joss says:

    I’d love this water carrier, I’ve had enough of walking through campsites carrying all sorts of improvised containers.

  25. Charisse says:

    The Innate Aqueduct would be great to use on our family camping & kayaking trips. This would be much easier to carry along than the big blue jugs. Many thanks to the Hiking Lady for bringing us the newest products.

  26. Jill says:

    This looks awesome! My husband, my two boys(9yrs. & 6yrs.), and myself love to camp, hike, and canoe. This would be perfect to take out on our many adventures! Pick me! ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. Karen Sushigal says:

    I’m moving to North Carolina and can’t wait to start hiking. This would be my first piece of hiking equipment ! It would be extra special,cause its fromThe Hiking Lady.

  28. Sherry says:

    I travel around the world hand drilling wells in places that lack access to clean water. This would be a perfect way to store clean water at drill sites until the wells are completed!

  29. christopher sorel says:

    This would be great for cub scouts as i am a den leader and kids always are forgetting to fill their water bottles. Or heck bring one. But we must continue to be outside and have fun

  30. Jamie Lynn says:

    This piece of gear is perfect, we can never get enough of the fresh spring water on the trail, perfect to fill and bring back plenty of water for the site! We usually would have to make a few trips to make sure the doggies are hydrated too.

  31. Marilyn says:

    I am a new hiker and acquiring gear has been an expensive undertaking as I am sure all readers of this site know. One thing I have not gotten yet is a camp water system for my little group. Having looked at several products, this one seems like it would work perfectly for us.

  32. Cathy Renth says:

    Always looking for great gear to reduce my packing. Looks like the Innate Water System fits the bill!

  33. Jamie C says:

    My family and I are avid hikers and this would be a great addition to our collection of “must haves”. I also like the idea of having it on hand to fill in preparation for weather emergencies.(tornadoes, blizzards etc) My family lives in a very rural area and are on our own when storms hit. (we are still recovering from the tornado destruction from 2 yrs ago) Preparedness is key.

  34. Johna says:

    I would love to win this! Six of us are hiking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon in march. I think this would be a good asset on the trip.

  35. Jen says:

    This looks so much more convenient and manageable than other large containers we’ve used. Having a spigot is also a great feature.

  36. Rochelle says:

    I would love to win this because I love camping. I love that the roll top keeps out dirt and debris. Thanks so much!

  37. Dodgerfan says:

    Hey Hiking Lady,
    Love yor site and informative info. that you share with us! Just Great.
    Please enter me in n the Innate water carrier as I live in Socal, the big one could keep me out on the trail for a long time; this would be excellent to add to my disaster kit!!!

    Keep the great info and reviews coming on your site.

  38. Marie Tho says:

    Way to go, Hikng Lady. This Innate water carrier is just the right thing for my family’s hiking and camping trips. It would fit great into my backpack carrier once we’re done with the water.

  39. Stengric says:

    Love the Innate Aqueduct Water System. This is the first piece of gear I’d ever seen from Innate Gear and have become a huge fan ever since. Now I can add the Hiking Lady to my FB feed for great gear reviews.

  40. Kevin S says:

    I’ve been wanting a collapsible water carrier all summer, just never got around to it. This one looks much nicer than the ones I was looking at in the camp store.

  41. Sandy Barlett says:

    Yeah! A water carrier to replace my bulky clear heavy plastic collapsible container that I fight with every time we go camping. It seemed like my only option for a water container that didn’t take up alot of space while in transit. Can’t wait to see how the Innate Aqueduct water system works.

  42. sarah says:

    I love the way this compacts! would be great to stuff in a bag, rather than trying to make other h2o containers “fit” in with your gear. Could probably use as a solar-type shower in a pinch too.

  43. shauna casolari says:

    Hiking/ outdoors/ active gear and tools are my addiction! I am always looking to expand my collection is useful ways. Now this is a product that everyone could use. I certainly would love one myself!

  44. JB says:

    Wish we had one of these over the last few post-hurricane days, looks easier to transport than the larger plastic multigallon containers.

  45. Diana Kie says:

    Oh so sweet. How nice it would be to have one of these. The Innate Aqueduct Water System would make my trips so much easier. Right now my family and I take an old laundry Spencerian with us. This would fit so much better with us. Thanks Hiking Lady for give us new ways to see and experience life.

  46. Renee says:

    Hiking and camping are my favorite ways to get away from it all, to relax, and remember what the really important things are in life. I go camping several times a year and I’m always looking for gear to make things convenient. The Innate Aqueduct Water System looks like a great addition to my camping equipment. Thanks to Hiking Lady for the great information you provide and for giving me nice breaks during the workday. ๐Ÿ™‚

  47. Stephanie says:

    I’m just starting to build a hiking/camping gear collection.. this would be a great addition and make backwoods camping so much easier!

  48. Cheryl says:

    Yes!!! (Fist pump!)
    I love being able to bring our own water into a campsite. And I love the way the Aqueduct can be hung from a tree for easy…arm reach dispensing!
