CamelBak® Takes Run Minimalism to a New Low
The Nano™ Vest and Nano™ Handheld Barely Exist While Still Providing Necessary Cargo and Hydration to Fuel Your Adventure

PETALUMA, Calif.  – The trails are calling and we dare you to break free and explore. The new Nano™ Vest and Nano™ Handheld hydration systems from CamelBak are designed to be undetectable on your next run so you can go off-path, try something new and push yourself a little further with the assurance of knowing you have the necessary hydration and gear you need. Weighing a mere 150 grams, the Nano Vest carries 2 liters of cargo and 1 liter (34 ounces) of hydration. It also has the unique ability to carry trekking poles externally that remain within reach while running. The epitome of minimalism, the brand-new Nano Handheld carries 500 ml (17 ounces) of water in a collapsible and lightweight Quick Stow™ Flask surrounded by a small pocket only large enough to carry a few bills, cards, key and a gel. It is so small it can be stashed in a vest pocket with the zippered cargo pocket still attached for the ultimate adaptable system.
