Montbell Athlete Heather "Anish" Anderson Review and Recommendations

Reviewed in October, 2017

During my 2017 Southbound Thru-hike of the Continental Divide Trail I decided I wanted to carry a cook system and enjoy hot coffee each morning. This was a new style for me and I was very happy with my setup choices! True to the product description on the website, the O.D. Compact Dripper 4 is indeed “lightweight, packable, portable, washable, economical, and ecological.” It’s .2 oz weight was further reduced by leaving the storage pouch at home. I also utilized sticks to suspend it over the mug each morning, although the Stuck in Nobashi Chopsticks would be an excellent multi-purpose utensil option. I chose the larger sized dripper so that I could make coffee for my boyfriend and I both, however, I went with the smaller Titanium Cup 450, which didn’t pair as well with the larger Dripper. So, I ended up doing the pour over into my cookpot, which worked well enough. I highly recommend the Compact Dripper for both backcountry and front country travel. It’s great to use in hotels and on the road to make your favorite pour over any time.
