Pheidippides, the inventor of the marathon, died just after finishing. As uninspiring as this fact may be, you can probably find solace in his lack of the CamelBak Marathoner Hydration Vest. Since hydration can mean the difference between life and death, CamelBak included a two-liter Antidote reservoir to provide up to two hours of death-free running. From trail running to torturing marathons, this vest won't bounce annoyingly behind you with every step; its adjustable harness holds the pack to your torso tighter than a frightened spider monkey. At less than eleven ounces, you will barely notice the additional weight behind you. Because marathons are, well, sweaty, CamelBak stitched Air Mesh lining into the back panel for increased airflow and a more comfortable experience. Store an energy bar, phone, and wallet in the pack's DWR and PU-protected stash and cargo pockets for on-the-go quick and easy access. When cruising through the neighbor at night, take confidence in the additional safety of reflective panels and a built-in whistle.
The Antidote reservoir is the industry's most popular solution to on-the-go hydration. At the turn of a cap (a quarter turn to be exact), you can open or close the reservoir, refilling and securing it again in seconds. Center baffling and a sleek design prevent your water from jostling about inside your pack while running, hiking, or hitting the park. When not off exploring the world, simply disconnect the tube using the Quick Link System and hang up the Antidote for proper drying or storage. Since last year, CamelBak's go-to reservoir system has actually lost some weight, reducing bulk in the fill port and offering you that much more convenience.
