Season after season, CamelBak's super scientists have been hard at work refining and perfecting the Antidote reservoir, the industry's most popular solution to hydration. At the turn of a cap (a quarter turn to be exact), you can open or close the reservoir, refilling and securing it again in seconds. Center baffling and a sleek design prevent your water from jostling about inside your pack while running, hiking, or hitting the park. When not off exploring the world, simply disconnect the tube using the Quick Link System and hang up the Antidote for proper drying or storage. Since last year, CamelBak's go-to reservoir system has actually lost some weight, reducing bulk in the fill port and offering you that much more convenience.
The Arete 18 from CamelBak is a unique dual-use hydration pack. It is big enough to carry your 2 liter hydration bladder and enough gear for a daylong hike, or it can be turned inside out and used as a bladder sleeve that will slip into your larger pack for longer excursions.
Serving double duty as a hydration daypack or as a reservoir sleeve in a larger pack, the CamelBak Arete 18 Hydration Pack hauls 70 fl. oz. of water, plus your essentials for a day in the wilderness.
