During virtually any activity on a blistering summer afternoon, it’s almost impossible to resist the urge to drench yourself in the cold, revitalizing contents of your water bottle. If you do this with a normal bottle, however, you might end up soaking the ground more than yourself. Enter CamelBak’s new Reign Sport Bottle, which is designed to give you the on-the-go miniature shower you need to make sure your walk in the park is a walk in the park.

The Easy Squeeze Jet Valve has three settings: Completely closed to prevent spillage; open to one stream of water for drinking; and open to several streams of water to pour on your face, your head, and/or your friend. With the high-flow stream, your mouth doesn’t even have to touch the water bottle, which is perfect for germ-wary companions. There’s also a grip pad to prevent condensation or sweat from causing the bottle to slip from your hands.


It’s engineered from CamelBak’s signature Trutaste polypropylene with Hydroguard, so your water will taste like water, not chemicals or plastic. Speaking of chemicals, it’s BPA-, BPS-, and BPF-free, so your environmental conscience can breathe a sigh of relief, too. And if you already own a Podium or Peak Fitness bottle from CamelBak, feel free to use this tri-mode cap on it, too.

If you’ve watched any outdoor, hot-weather sports games, you might’ve noticed that athletes often douse themselves with water from their bottles, and it’s definitely true that the Reign Sport Bottle was developed with sports in mind. But the sun doesn’t discriminate, and even stationary sunbathers can make use of such a versatile tool.

You can purchase the $15 bottle in a lime green/sky blue hybrid from Amazon, or in red, black, orange, royal blue, navy blue, or forest green from the CamelBak online store.

Just remember to wash it daily.
