Model: Zephyr Vest
Availability: Spring 2020
Unique Features: Polygiene coating keeps it smelling fresh no matter how many miles you log in this.
Upshot: The CamelBak Zephyr will hold over 100 ounces of water between its soft flask bottles that slide into chest pockets and a bladder that stays put on your back. Whether you’re tackling a desert walk or a day hike, this pack is fast and light and keeps you hydrated all day long.
Who It’s For: Hikers, runners and walkers will love that no matter how much they use it (read: sweat in it), the Polygiene coating will help it stay fresh.
Insight: CamelBak created a business for itself crafting ways to keep athletes hydrated — from hydration packs to water bottles — and the brand knows what you need. The Zephyr vest is sleek, with mesh panels along the back and straps to stay breathable. Adjustable chest and side straps mean no bounce; a small zipper pocket on your front is ideal for keys and cards, so you can grab some food or a beer on your way home. The lightweight vest will launch next year for $150.
