Hydrogel Technology is kind of a Maurten thing if you know what I mean. Actually, you probably have no idea what we're talking about.

If you’ve made the switch to squeezable fuel, you’ve probably found that rigid bottle holders just won’t do.

With good reason soft flasks have been increasing in popularity. If you haven’t already tasted the Kool-Aid, let us enlighten you. When fully loaded with water, soft flasks maintain their shape just like a hard bottle. After a few sips, however, the contents won’t slosh around; instead it’s a quiet and air-tight blob that conforms to your body and moves with you. When it’s empty, t..

The Dynafit Alpine Bottle Holder saves pack-space by keeping your liquid in front of ..
