CamelBak® Products, LLC, announced today that it is the supplier of the Hydration System for the new USMC pack system. Scheduled to be delivered in 2012, the new Mil Spec Antidote reservoirs are specifically built to accommodate all potential Marine-use scenarios in training and combat operations.
A long-time supplier of military-ready hydration systems to all branches of the U.S. military and federal government, including U.S. Army Special Forces and U.S. Navy Special Warfare Command, CamelBak conducted extensive laboratory tests and accumulated significant feedback from military personnel in the field before creating a new reservoir that meets all specifications identified by the USMC in its search for the optimal hydration system.
In addition to supplying the hydration system component of the USMC pack, CamelBak will also provide replacement hydration systems showcasing its leadership as the inventor and leader of the hydration category. CamelBak will launch a line of packs that are built around the Mil Spec Antidote reservoir as early as May 2012.
“We design, engineer, test and manufacture our reservoirs and hydration systems to perform in the most challenging environments in the world,” said Sally McCoy, CEO of CamelBak. “Water is an essential piece of gear and the Mil Spec Antidote delivers the ultimate solution for hydrating on the move faster, easier and more aligned with a warfighter’s needs.”
The CamelBak Mil Spec Antidote hydration system will be supplied by USMC Pack Prime Contractors Eagle Industries Unlimited and Propper International, Inc.
The new Antidote reservoir optimizes performance through a multitude of new features:
Current military and law enforcement branches using CamelBak hydration systems include individuals and units in all U.S. military services, federal tactical units in most DHS agencies, Naval Special Warfare, U.S. Army Special Forces and other military special operations units worldwide.*
