MEN'S HEALTH TECH GUIDE

12.01.2010

Disposable plastic water bottles are wasteful - only one in six are recycled. But tap water often tastes like, well, waste. With its integrated replaceable filter, this 0.6 liter power sipper provides a superior solution to both problems. As you draw water through the big-gulp straw, the filter de-funkifies with each sip, reducing chlorine, mercury, copper, cadmium, and lead. Each swapable filter is good for 300 refills and replaces 375 plastic bottles.

OUTSIDE GIFT GUIDE

Our number-one complaint with plastic bottles: plastic-tasting water. CamelBak's Groove bottle has a replaceable carbon filter that improves both the quality (it pulls out chlorine, mercury, and other nasties) and taste of tap water.

BIKERADAR OCTANE LR PACK REVIEW

11.30.2010

CamelBak’s all-new LR is their best lightweight pack ever, for a host of innovative reasons. It uses a two litre
transverse (rather than vertical) bladder that wraps around your hips to keep water weight low. Internal baffles stop it getting too fat, or sloshing about when you’re throwing your weight around on the bike.

It has the easy open, quarter turn filler cap of all the new Antidote reservoirs, so no more fighting with the top cap, and the Quick Link drinking hose n...

CamelBak VeloBak Road

A hydration shirt? Yes. This three-pocket cycling jersey has an integrated compartment that snugs a 72-ounce reservoir (included) to your back. Some testers were initially skeptical, but being able to carry more water—and not having to reach down for a drink—sold them. Works just as well off-road, too, though it can feel a bit sloshy on technical terrain.

THE GEAR JUNKIE SCOOP- CAMELBAK ANTIDOTE

07.08.2010

It was more than 20 years ago when an enterprising endurance athlete stuffed a medical IV bag into a tube sock and sewed it onto his cycling jersey. CamelBak, the self-proclaimed inventor of the “hands-free hydration category,” was born, and hydration in the outdoors would never be the same.

This year, a distant descendant of the tube-sock holder will be released. The company claims its Antidote product line will redefine “how packs and reservoirs should work together as compl...

FIELD TESTED- THE BEST SUMMER HYDRATION PACKS

07.07.2010

A few weeks ago, my friend Aileen and I made a rookie mistake, despite being inveterate outdoorsy types. We hiked 12 miles through Santa Fe National Forest equipped with only an 18-oz water bottle between the both of us. Not the smartest move, especially in high desert. Luckily, just when our mouths felt like drywall and the conversation had turned to Will Ferrell’s latest hydration technique, we reached the safety of my car. But not before I’d learned a critical lesson: Don’t ever leave...

GEAR GUIDE- A COOLER WAY TO STAY HYDRATED

06.10.2010

Summer has arrived here in Birmingham, Ala. While that doesn’t mean an end to outdoor workouts, having something to sip while I sweat has moved from nicety to necessity. One thing I dread, though, is that moment at which the sun turns my beverage from refreshingly cool to revoltingly warm. So I was intrigued to hear about CamelBak’s new Podium Ice water bottle, whose insulation supposedly keeps water cold four times longer than regular bottles’.

I devised an admittedly less-th...
