Poco Safety Notices – Osprey Expands Hydraulics™ Series with Lighter, Streamlined Reservoir – July 17, 2013

Recognizing that less is often more, especially when on the move, Osprey Packs, Inc. is adding to its innovative Hydraulics series with the new Hydraulics LT Reservoir for Spring 2014.

The all-new reservoir features a lighter and simpler feature set compared to the current Hydraulics Reservoir, ideal for fast and light endeavors and pack styles with internal reservoir pockets. Building on the innovations of the Hydraulics Reservoir, the design of Hydraulics LT Reservoir combines excellent reservoir-to-pack integration, superior technical features and the best gender-specific pack-to-body fit and performance on the market.

“Carrying water should never compromise fit, comfort or stability in a pack,” said Gareth Martins, marketing director of Osprey.  ‘We set that standard with the original Hydraulics Reservoir and now, with the introduction of the new Hydraulics LT, our hands-free hydration program takes yet another giant leap.”

The new Hydraulics LT features a QuickConnect™ detachable hose that allows for easy disconnect of the hose for faster refilling. Additionally, the built-in baffles on the reservoir prevent sloshing while maintaining the reservoir’s shape.

In addition to these unique features, the new reservoir incorporates the innovation that Osprey Hydraulics Reservoir is known for including:
•    Flexible ¼” hose for faster water flow
•    ¾ turn cap for quick and secure open/close
•    Liter markings printed on reservoir body
•    Metallocene PE high strength and taste-free film (BPA & PVC-free); anti-microbial formula to prevent bacteria and mold
•    Low-profile shape keeps water weight steady and close to the body
•    Magnetic bite valve with included sternum strap magnet
•    Built-in 180-degree pivot on/off bite valve

Hydraulics LT Reservoir is available in:
•    1.5 Liter – $28
•    2.5 Liter- $30

The Hydraulics LT Reservoir will be sold separately and will also be sold as part of the new Rev Series which debuts Spring 2014. The Rev Series meets the highly technical needs of trail running and endurance racing while also serving as the perfect companion to anyone who appreciates smaller volume, streamlined hydration packs.
