Soft Flasks are a nice hydration option since they get smaller the more you drink!! CAMP’s version, aka the Soft Flask CAMP (SFC), comes in a range of sizes to suit all of your hydration needs. The 150ml and 300ml flasks are good for gel, which is much easier to consume when mixed with water and put in a flask, as well as for shorter tours where you don't need as much water. The 600ml version works great for plain old water and light mixes of supplemental powders. The diminishing nature of soft sided flasks means that if you're remembering to drink, your flask will shrink in size (and weight) as the day progresses, meaning your load lightens as you get more and more tired. Whether you fill your SFC up from an alpine spring or a kitchen sink, you're bound to appreciate the simple and efficient functionality of a soft flask.
You can attach flasks to your pack with the SFC holder.
|150ml (9.15 cuin)||24g (0.8oz)|
|300ml (18.3 cuin)||33g (1.2oz)|
|600ml (36.60 cuin)||44g (1.55 oz)|
Update 2019/20: CAMP stopped producing the 150 & 500 ml flasks and switched over to 300 & 600 ml sizes.
Questions & Reviews
When my training or racing hasn’t required a pack for carrying skis or anything else, I’ve instead put a couple of these flasks in my race suit or top: saves some weight, plus my close-proximity body heat prevents any icing on arctic outings. I’ve even had some success in positioning a flask so that bite valve is just barely accessible for nearly hands-free sipping like a hydration bladder/tube/valve.
The 500ml flask is also great for trail running: I start off with one of these in each hand, and then when empty they compress to almost nothing for stowing away in even the most minimalistic summer clothing pocket.
Just one caution: water can leak a bit when stowed if both the bite valve and the flask are compressed exactly the “right” way, but this has occurred for me only very slightly and very rarely.
