Denver, Colorado – February 13, 2020 – A newcomer to the outdoor hard goods market, Hydrolight Outdoor Gear introduced its patented, multi-functional illuminating water reservoir at Outdoor Retailer + Snow Show in January.
Hydrolight cleverly combines two essential pieces of gear—a water reservoir and a headlamp—to create a product that functions as a hands-off hydration system in your pack, and a camping lantern at night. It’s a water reservoir and a bright night lantern: two in one.
The patented waterproof zip pocket on the water reservoir secures a headlamp in place and the light is directed and diffused throughout the reservoir water. No longer relegated to the depths of a pack, the reservoir comes out after a day of hydrating and lights up the campsite, tent, or picnic table.
The outdoor gear market has faced unprecedented disruption in recent years, due in part to shifting demands from consumers. One of those demands is having equipment that serves more than one purpose and lightens the load that backpackers must carry to their camping destination.
“Hydrolight is the only water reservoir in the market that leverages the inherent ability of water to amplify and diffuse light. Our biodegradable materials also uphold our values to do our part in preserving the environment,” says Founder and Inventor, Franklin Ng.
“With Hydrolight, users can now stay hydrated and light an area with one product,” added Co-Founder Brian Mielcarek. “It streamlines your gear and solves the problem of increased pack weight caused by heavy lights and lanterns.” That’s one major piece of gear you can remove from your gear list.
Leading vendors of hydration packs including CamelBak, HydraPak, and Osprey have done one thing well for a long time: hands-free hydration. Hydrolight builds upon that foundation and delivers an answer to consumer demands for multi-purpose gear.
The 2 Liter Hydrolight is available for purchase on hydrolightoutdoorgear.com.
