Hook and Loop The generic term for Velcro®
Howk Another term for a false peak or a peak on the way to a summit.
Hydration Bladder A pliable container that usually has a tube and valve attached from which one can drink. Backpackers have taken to them because they are flexible (they pack down well) and they have a tube, so you don't need to take water out of your pack to drink, you simply suck on the hose. Platypusâ and Camelbackâ are the two most popular brands.
