From the Boston Herald:
Sure it’s the company many turned to for all their water wishes, but one of this holiday’s highlights from CamelBak is a travel mug for hot coffee and tea.
The 16-ounce CamelBak Forge ($30) is a double-walled steel, vacuum-insulated vessel that will keep coffee and tea hot for 6 hours. The leak-proof cap can either be left open for frequent sipping or closed between drinks, all easily with one hand. It’s slim enough to fit in most car cup holders and backpack bottle pockets.
The Forge comes in eight color schemes. There’s also a 12-ounce version for $29.
On the other side of the temperature scale, CamelBak has improved the Podium Ice($25) bike bottle to keep beverages icy four times longer than previous versions. The soft-sided, 21-ounce bottle has a special valve that allows a high rate of water to squeeze out of the bottle. The nozzle is removable for easy cleaning.
For larger amounts of water, the CamelBak Arete 22 ($80, available exclusively at REI) is a 2-liter hydration system inside an ultralight pack. It can be used either as a minimalist hiking pack or as a reservoir sleeve inside a larger pack. It features a wide-mouth port for easy filling and cleaning and a Big Bite valve.
