Temperature Retention Capabilities
CamelBak determines each drinkware or bottle’s ability to keep liquid cold or hot by using a standardized test method under controlled conditions to ensure consistent results. We do not publish the exact values from this testing. Instead, we provide summary “hours hot” and “hours cold” numbers that enable you to compare one CamelBak product to another when making a purchase.
If a product is labeled with “10 hours cold”, this means refrigerated water without ice stored in the product will still be cool approximately 10 hours later.
If a product is labeled “6 hours hot”, this means that freshly brewed coffee or tea stored in the product will still be warm approximately 6 hours later.
For Podium bottles we do not provide hours cold. Rather we provide a multiplier, for instance 2X, to compare insulated versus uninsulated Podium bottles.
