Updated Hydration Backpacks Series

St. Paul, Minn. (April 20, 2016) – Ergodyne has announced today strategic updates to the hydration packs in its Chill-Its® Cooling Line. Each model now features a redesigned DualCap bladder opening, and premium models 5156 and 5157 are now only available in a larger 3-liter bladder.

“Lugging water around all day, while important, can be productivity-prohibiting,” said Alsie Nelson, associate product manager, Ergodyne. “Our hands-free hydration solutions address that challenge and now have been updated with improved functionality as well as a variety of bladder sizes to choose from – 1L, 2L, and 3L – to address each worker’s unique hydration needs.”

The bigger bladder minimizes the need for frequent fill-ups during shifts and provides those away from a communal water source more hydration for longer. New DualCap bladder openings make it easy to fill the packs, coming standard with a large 80mm opening for ice and a smaller 60mm opening option with 360 degree handle for filling with water at a facet, hose or water spout. Designed with safety in mind, all Chill-Its® Hydration Packs are made with a durable, water-resistant rip-stop polyester shell, adjustable breakaway shoulder straps and a chest strap for added safety and comfort. All models are also available in a hi-vis option, improving worker visibility with reflective accents and multiple color options.

The following low-profile and premium hydration pack models are included in this update:

Workers can drink using the anti-microbial bite valve or the handy hydration pack pressure pump. The 5158 Hydration Pack Pressure Pump turns any pack into a multi-functional product, allowing the user to drink, clean hands or equipment and even activate evaporative cooling products. Made of FDA-approved food grade silicone, the pump’s safe seal valve eliminates drips and the elastic strap secures it to the hand.

Ideal for anyone needing hands-free hydration and a little mist to cool off, updated Chill-Its® Hydration Packs and Accessories are available May 1st at all authorized Ergodyne distributors and on our website.
