New freeride packs from CamelBak

Goggle pockets, lift pass holders and straps for armour

CamelBak are releasing a new line of hydration packs for 2010 aimed at freeriders, downhillers and dirt jumpers.


Named The Don, The Capo and Consigliere, the All-Mountain Freeride (AMF) bags are said to combine “functional features, riding comfort and an edgy design”.

All feature fleece-lined glasses/goggle compartments, a hidden window for a lift pass and external straps for body armour and a helmet.

Capacity varies from 7.8l to 17.5l, with a 100oz (3l) reservoir in The Don (£89.99) and The Capo (£69.99), and a 70oz (2l) reservoir in the Consigliere (£59.99).

All the packs are compatible with CamelBak’s new electronic Flow Meter, unveiled at the Interbike show in Las Vegas earlier this year.

CamelBak have just signed up-and-coming Norwegian freerider Trond Hansen to their team, so you can expect to see some more gravity-friendly products hitting shop shelves in the near future.
