Driving from Denver to Great Sand Dunes National Park in Southern Colorado can take you one of two ways. Some take the quick route along the concrete superhighway of Interstate 25. The scenic route is the most enjoyable and rewarding. It goes down Colorado State Route 69 along the Sangre Cristo Mountains. This sub range of the Rocky Mountains contains several fourteeners - mountain peaks rising above the 14,000-foot threshold. Towering mountains peaks like this lends the CamelBak Fourteener its name.

The CamelBak Fourteener is a hydration pack inspired by the conquest of monstrous mountains peaks. The Fourteener has CamelBak’s trademarked OMEGA HydroTanium Reservoir which carries a lifetime warranty. It can carry up to 100 ounces of fluid to keep you hydrated and ascending up the rocky trails of the Sangre Cristo. There is an insulated pocket to help keep the liquid in the hydration reservoir cool. The pack delivers 1,650 cubic inches of capacity to carry all the essentials for a long day (and night) of hiking.

There are two easily-accessible external pockets on the CamelBak Fourteener. One is fleece-lined and is designed for sunglasses or an MP3 player. The other external pocket is much larger and can be used for organizing such items such as keys, money/change, maps, and other essentials. The two mesh pockets located on the side of the CamelBak Fourteener provide for water bottles or added storage. The outside of the pack also features a tool loop, lash point, adjustable sternum strap, and dual compression straps.

What puts the Fourteener over the top is CamelBak’s N.V.I.S. back panel design. This provides for heightened ventilation between your back and the pack. The N.V.I.S. allows sweat to evaporate quickly which makes for a more comfortable outdoor excursion. 

Camelbak_LogoThe CamelBak Fourteener delivers with a larger hydration reservoir and ample storage for a full-day of outdoor adventures. CamelBak offers it in three color schemes: Estate-Blue-Charcoal, Ceylon-Charcoal and Racing-Red-Charcoal. The pack has a limited two-year warranty and the OMEGA HydroTanium Reservoir carries CamelBak’s Lifetime Warranty. The CamelBak Fourteener has an MSRP of $125.
