CamelBak Relay water filtration pitcher


CamelBak has an innovative water filtration pitcher that will filter your water at the speed of your faucet. The CamelBak Relay is the first of its kind and was created to keep pace with active lives. No more waiting to fill your reusable water bottles or CamelBak hydration packs with filtered water in order to get outside and hit the trails or climb to your heart’s content.

The CamelBak Relay has a unique, pleated double filter technology system that filters water twice; once the pitcher is filled and again as water is poured. The Fresh™ Filter, made with plant-based activated carbon, lasts four months with regular usage which is twice as long as the leading competitor. Consumer’s complaints about water filtration pitchers on the market were taken into consideration when the Relay was being created. In addition to the filter lasting longer and the water being filtered faster, the Relay has a locking lid that gives the consumer a controlled pour, and you don’t have to worry about spilling or the lid falling off.

The pitcher holds 10 cups of water and has a space-saving pitcher design that easily fits in most refrigerator doors. The Relay is BPA-free and dishwasher safe (top rack) and removes 97% of chlorine, taste and odor according to a test to NSF/ANSI Standard 42. It has an easy-to-read filter reminder dial so you know when to replace your filter. And another great thing about the CamelBak Relay is that it’s backed up by the CamelBak Got Your Back™ Guarantee which is a lifetime guarantee.

The CamelBak Relay has a really sleek-looking design. The filter doesn’t take up half as much space as some of the other water filtration pitchers I’ve used before, so it leaves ample space for more water. The locking lid is brilliant and has spared me from spilling all over the kitchen counter while pouring. I’ve been extremely impressed with how fast it filters water, and the taste is refreshing and clean.

I admittedly have bought bottled water to avoid waiting for my water to be filtered by a water pitcher or most of the time I’ll just bypass filtered water and use my sink water. But it is nice to have clean tasting water without the chlorine aftertaste. With the CamelBak Relay I’m able to fill up a 2-liter hydration pack or a couple of reusable water bottles and be on my way for a day at the crags or mountain biking without having to wait minutes for a full pitcher of filtered water. And the fact that I can just fill up the pitcher and have more filtered water quickly is an added bonus.

CamelBak has added another excellent item to their line of hydration products with the Relay. They listened to the consumers and created a water pitcher filtration system that works fast with efficiency. If you don’t want to sit and wait minutes for your water pitcher to filter water at a slow pace, or if you want to be more green by avoiding the purchase of disposable water bottles, then I’d highly recommend the CamelBak Relay. It’ll save you time, money, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the quickness and taste of the filtered water.

The CamelBak Relay water filtration pitcher is available at your local Target stores and at
