MDM – Camelbak

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Camelbak serves as a sub-contractor to the primes for new Marine Corps Pack Suite after the mil-spec Antidote was chosen as the hydration system.

It features a wide opening mouth into a low profile, 100 oz baffled reservoir with a quick disconnect tube. The low profile cap requires just a quarter turn and can’t be over tightened to help mitigate leaks from breakage.

A commercial version should be available in exchanges beginning Spring 2012.

Camelbak Groove Filter

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

Camelbak produced this video explaining how they test their Groove filter technology. The Camelbak Groove features a bite valve and replaceable filter elements. One of the main features of the Groove filter is that it removes nasty tastes so they recommend that you only use water. It seems the filter removes good tastes as well. Interestingly, the activated material in the filter is coconut carbon (anyone remember this?).
