CamelBak TriZip™ Focuses on Ease and Speed
Washington , D.C. – CamelBak® announces the TriZip™ as part of its Maximum® Gear line for 2009. The CamelBak mission to provide quality, innovative and durable tools in the field resulted in the creation of the TriZip. The pack allows users to customize their fit with multiple access points, opening fully to access any warfighter’s gear with ease and speed.
Keeping in step with the need for speed, this tactical pack incorporates side release buckles so users can quickly detach their packs from shoulder harnesses, upper and lower compression straps and waist belt. The unique 3-zip design allows for fast access to gear from multiple points, making it easier for warfighters to stay on the move. Also integrated into the design is the hook-and-loop panel for the hassle-free removal of nametags and unit badges, an elastic drawstring pocket in the main storage compartment accommodating a second reservoir or laptop, and zippered side pockets and clips. The printed MOLLE AUC webbing provides the same disruptive pattern of camouflage fabric both visually and through night vision equipment, while maintaining the full functionality, durability and reliability of standard solution dyed webbing.
CamelBak helps lighten the load by using lightweight and durable 500D Cordura® material, which has a tighter weave and is lighter in weight than standard 1000D Cordura® – making this the most comfortable tactical pack for carrying heavy loads. The new TriZip also has the Futura Harness by Mystery Ranch, allowing the user to custom fit the harness to their specific torso size as well as make adjustments if the pack is being worn with or without armor.
TriZip features the elements CamelBak is known for in a fully integrated hydration system, including the HydroLink™ Big Bite™ Valve, HydroGuard™ Anti-Microbial Technology, and HydroLock™ for secure shut off. Along with a separate insulated hydration compartment, complete with reservoir hang loop, the balance of the TriZip design provides warfighters with access to their hydration systems with ease and speed.
Currently available, the TriZip pack measures 20 x 13 x 11.5 inches and comes in four colors: Army Universal Camo, Black, Coyote or MultiCam. Available on GSA contract GS07F-9727H, at Exchanges, and all usual CamelBak Maximum® Gear distribution outlets.
