CamelBak® Wins ISPO Seal of Quality Recognition for First of Its Kind Quick StowTM Chill Soft Flask

PETALUMA, California –  Following review by 45 judges from 13 countries (and two continents), the ISPO Seal of Quality jury has recognized CamelBak as a winner in the hydration category for its invention of the Quick Stow™ Chill Soft Flask.

Resounding feedback from testers identified a need in the market for a soft bottle that was both easily packable, but also easily carried when full. With that, CamelBak began developing a soft-sided collapsible hydration flask with integrated insulation. The result: an insulated soft bottle, Quick Stow Chill Flask, as well as a non-insulated bottle, Quick Stow Flask. Both hold up to .5L of water and feature the sturdy and leak-proof polyurethane reservoir material CamelBak uses for its reservoirs.

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.

“Since its launch late last year, we’ve quickly realized the beauty of Quick Stow is its application in many different sports,” explained Jon Austin, Senior Director of Product Management at CamelBak. “The Quick Stow Chill has been a great addition to the CamelBak run line, while also being a great accessory on the bike to keep hydration in a jersey pocket, or in your ski jacket to stay hydrated on the slopes.”

The Quick Stow Chill will be on display in the CamelBak ISPO booth located in Hall A2 #502.
