Riding narrow single-track trails on your mountain bike can be one of the great joys of summer. Surrounded by a canopy of trees, you can enjoy the lush forest as you twist and turn over the rugged terrain. The difficult climbs are followed by a freewheeling descents, and you're constantly on the lookout for roots, rocks and overhanging branches. Bending down to grab a water bottle from its cage isn't always an easy option – and you should probably be drinking more often anyway. The Camelbak Chase Bike Vest is targeted at those off-road riders who want easy access to water throughout the whole ride.
The minimalist vest fits tightly against the body for comfort, yet the 3D Vent Mesh material helps maintain airflow and reduces sweating. The 1.5-liter reservoir with a wide lid is easy to fill with water or a sports drink and simple to clean afterward. Camelbak's newest technology produces 20 percent more water per sip, allowing you take in water quickly. Pockets on the front of the harness allow easy access to energy gels and bars, and the dual adjustable sternum straps make it possible for every body type to dial in a comfortable fit.
