CamelBak revolutionized water carrying back in 1988 when they turned ordinary IV bags into super hydration bladders. Up until now, all of their innovative products mimicked a backpack—the bladder was slung between your shoulder blades. Their newest idea, the Antidote Lumbar Reservoir, allows you sling that weight onto your hips to take the load off of your upper back. The lower back placement also helps stabilize your balance and keep your feet on the trail while hydrating in comfort and style. ($35, camelbak.com)
