There’s nothing more important than staying hydrated when doing outdoor activities or spending extended time in the heat. How many times have you taken your bottle of water with you on a hike or bike ride, only to find out you’ve drank it all and still have a ways to go with no refill station in sight?

Tried and trusted over the years as the first brand name in the hydration market, Camelbak have been keeping the thirsty throats of adventurers quenched for many years. They have some great standard bottles for staying hydrated on shorter excursions, compact hydration packs that you could put into your luggage for longer day hikes, other day packs with hydration units built in, and of course lots of drink ware suited for every day life.

As well, they just launched these new awesome Fusion Reservoirs this summer that use a waterproof toothless zipper, vs. a screw on cap or folding closure, which makes them easier to clean and dry. They can be slipped into any pack that has a hydration pocket in it (like almost every backpacking or day hiking pack nowadays), or for multi-day trips they can be used as an additional hydration pack providing more than enough fluids to keep you conquering along your journey.
