CamelBak® Expands Thermal Collection with KickBak™ Stainless Vacuum Insulated

PETALUMA, Calif. – CamelBak®, the global leader in personal hydration, announces KickBak™ Stainless Vacuum Insulated, a brand new product in the Thermal Collection. With KickBak, no matter what’s outside, your beverage is always the right temperature on the inside. The 18/8 stainless steel vacuum insulated vessel keeps beverages cold for 8 hours and hot for 4 hours and eliminates condensation. KickBak features a brilliant balance of simplicity and functionality with a dual flip lid with a large opening for cold drinks like water or beer and a small opening for warm beverages like coffee or tea. No matter which opening you choose, the splash-proof lid flips up and locks into the opposing side.

“We know people choose disposable bottles of water and other disposable cups for three reasons, taste, temperature and convenience,” said Kimberly Shaw, Director of Product for CamelBak. “We are committed to reducing the amount of disposable vessels used and KickBak allows anyone who prefers beverages of any type, hot, cold or carbonated, to enjoy them all day long, whether at home, work or backyard party.”

KickBak joins the CamelBak Thermal Collection which includes other products like Chute Stainless Vacuum Insulated, eddy Stainless Vacuum Insulated, Forge Vacuum and Forge Divide. KickBak is available in January 2017 and comes a vast array of colors. It is available in two sizes, 30 oz. and 20 oz. with an MSRP of $37 and $29 respectively and are designed to fit in most cup holders. The lid is dishwasher safe and handwashing the vessel is recommended. KickBak is BPA, BPS and BPF-Free.

Like all CamelBak products, KickBak Stainless Vacuum Insulated is covered by the CamelBak Got Your Bak™ Lifetime Guarantee.
