Hydrastash® is an exclusive, patented hydration system discreetly hidden inside your garment. It is simple to use, sustainable, and safe. On demand access to water is provided even when you’re on the lift or in the backcountry without having to carry a bulky water bottle. The system is strategically designed around your center of balance when full and once empty it is nearly weightless. Our pro team gives it their full trust as it is designed to bend upon impact – not break. Hydrastash® is also a part of the solution to decrease the single use waste in the form of water cups at ski resorts.
Developed around your body in motion, our exclusive Thermagraph® technology places separate zones of insulation and breathability strategically throughout your jacket or pants. These zones work together to create an ultra-lightweight, warm, and highly breathable lining that increases versatility of your jacket and pants. Insulation zones are placed where your body needs warmth the most - your vital organs, spine, knees, and seat are surrounded by breathable, moisture wicking mesh to allow for the utmost moisture evaporation and body temperature regulation.
BOA® compatible leg gaiters allow you to tighten your top boa on the fly, without letting the elements get to you.
I'd been wanting bibs for a while, and when I heard about the hydrostash, I knew I had to have these! Hauling water on the mountain is something that always annoyed me. I don't always want to carry a backpack, but that seemed like the only solution. The hydrostash is a gamechanger. No more dehydrated runs when I'm sick of wearing a backpack. Plus they are so warm and waterproof! When I bought them, they only had a size XL left. I would normally have ordered a medium, but honestly I'm kinda digging the baggy fit. Just adjusting the shoulder straps makes it so that they aren't falling off me.
