Available Now: Athlete Proven CamelBak® Run Collection Including Industry First Quick Stow™ Chill Flask
Never Run on Empty
PETALUMA, Calif. (January 10, 2017) – With a proven history of hydration innovation, CamelBak® announces the industry’s first insulated collapsible bottle, Quick Stow™ Chill Flask. Resounding feedback from testers - both ultra trail runners and cyclists - identified a need in the market for a soft bottle that was both easily packable, but also easily carried when full. CamelBak began developing a soft-sided collapsible hydration flask with integrated insulation. The result: an insulated soft bottle, Quick Stow Chill Flask, as well as a non-insulated bottle, Quick Stow Flask.
Both Quick Stow and Quick Stow Chill feature the rugged and leak-proof polyurethane material CamelBak uses for its reservoirs which makes both bottles easy to carry without feeling floppy or limp. Quick Stow Chill Flask integrates a layer of Chill foam, found in the popular Podium collection, between two layers of polyurethane reservoir material. This insulation keeps water colder two-times longer than a non-insulated flask. The Chill foam is completely sealed inside by a radio frequency (RF) weld, bonding the two layers of polyurethane around it.
Both Quick Stow flasks feature the patented Big Bite™ Valve that is irrefutably the best drink interface on the market thanks to its self-sealing silicone design that won’t leak. Each cap also has a leak-proof shut-off valve integrated into a large diameter cap making cleaning and adding ice cubes or powder mixes easy. Quick Stow Chill Flask and Quick Stow Flask both hold up to 500ml of hydration cubes or powder mixes easy. Quick Stow and Quick Stow Chill Flasks retail for $20 and $28, respectively.
