CamelBak® Invents First Insulated Soft Bottle: Quick Stow™ Chill Flask

PETALUMA, Calif. – CamelBak®, the global leader in personal hydration, launches the industry’s first insulated collapsible bottle, Quick Stow™ Chill Flask. CamelBak has a proven history in insulated vessels, making the highest quality reservoirs on  the market for over 27 years. Leveraging its expertise in hydration, CamelBak began developing a soft-sided collapsible hydration flask with integrated insulation after extensive testing with trail and ultra-runners as well as cyclists. Resounding feedback from testers was that current products were too soft or limp to be carried easily even when full, but athletes still needed to store them away or pack them flat when they were empty. CamelBak created two products to solve these issues: an insulated version, Quick Stow Chill Flask, and a non-insulated version, Quick Stow Flask. Both feature the rugged and leak-proof polyurethane reservoir material CamelBak uses for its reservoirs which makes both versions of Quick Stow Flasks much easier to carry without feeling floppy or limp.

Quick Stow Chill Flask integrates a layer of Chill foam, found in the popular Podium collection, between two layers of polyurethane reservoir material. This insulation keeps water colder two-times longer than a non-insulated flask, and also adds body to the flask making it much easier to carry, while still remaining packable and easy to store when empty. The Chill foam is completed sealed inside by a radio frequency (RF) weld, bonding the two layers of polyurethane around it.

Both Quick Stow flasks feature the patented Big Bite™ Valve that is irrefutably the best drink interface on the market thanks to its self-sealing silicone design that won’t leak. Each cap also has a leak-proof shut-off valve integrated into a large diameter cap making cleaning and adding ice cubes or powder mixes easy. Quick Stow Chill Flask and Quick Stow Flask both hold up to 500ml of hydration.

Like all CamelBak products, Quick Stow Chill Flask and Quick Stow Flask are covered by the CamelBak Got Your Bak™ Lifetime Guarantee.
