Hydration packs are an essential piece of everyday kit, especially when your schedule revolves around exploring remote parts of the earth, traversing the urban jungle, or you’re looking for a way to stay quenched at your favorite music festival. And while Hydro Flask might not be the first name that comes to mind when you’re looking for a wearable storage compartment for your H2O, all of that is about to change.
The outdoor brand is known far and wide for their rugged and durable water-bottle solutions, but following the announcement of two new Journey Series hydration packs, it’s clear that the brand’s first foray into the realm of portable nourishment is a step in the right direction. The Journey Series will encompass both a 10-liter and 20-liter pack that’s been designed with outdoor enthusiasts in mind — weighing around 3 and 3.6 pounds, respectively. Aside from the liquid-toting portion of the pack, there are also a variety of pockets and storage compartments that allow wearers to securely stow a number of essential items. A taped-seam, watertight silhouette ensures that your most important gear stays moisture free, while an internally insulated IsoBound 3-L reservoir keeps your chosen liquids at the perfect temperature for hours on end. The Journey Series will be launched in April via Hydro Flask’s online retailer and will cost around $165 for the 10-liter offering.
