2012 Gambler Winter Hydration Pack

2012 Gambler Winter Hydration Pack


Seth: Hey, Seth here with CamelBak. We’re
talking with John Duran, our lead designer, about the new Gambler which
is a winter specific side country hydration pack, from CamelBak. John,
can you walk us through some of the features on this pack? John: Sure. You know, one of the main things
that we wanted to fit was a shovel and what we did was design a three
point harness system here with the overflow. It really keeps it nice and
secure. It also makes easy access to the front so you can just drop your pack
down, click the buckles, and get your shovel in an emergency. We also have
these side mounted, quick access probe sleeves. That way you can get
to your emergency access probes. Seth: Easy in, easy out. John: We have deployable gear loops here and
that can also carry other safety gear. If your shovel has a detachable
handle you can carry that in that as well. One of my favorite features
on this pack, besides the easy access for my wallet and phone which I want
to get to quickly to maybe just snap a photo or buy a hot chocolate down at
the lodge, is we also have a pocket underneath that you can keep your skins
if you’re a skier and you’re heading up into the backcountry. Or, if you’re
not using skins it’s an additional pocket stored away and secured
behind this flap just for added protection and cargo capacity. All the zipper pulls and all the hardware
are glove friendly so you don’t need to slow down and take off your equipment.
You can just pop a couple of snaps, get to your shovel, pull your probe
out and you’re on the move to the next endeavor. Seth: And what kind of hydration system is
built into this? John: It takes a three liter antidote reservoir
and that’s good for three hours on the slopes. And this one is housed
inside the thermonator harness like all of our winter packs. It keeps your
tube nice and sheltered from the elements and insulated inside to help
prevent freezing. You’ve got your shovel, your probe, skins, and hydration in
a minimalist design to help keep you out there light and fast. Seth: So that’s John Duran, one of our lead
designers from CamelBak. I’m Seth and we just walked you through the Gambler
side country winter specific pack from CamelBak. It falls under
the Got Your Back Guarantee. If we build it, we’ll back it even if you’re
in the backcountry.
