January 15, 2007 (Berkeley, Calif.)— Hydrapak, creator of innovative and advanced hands-free fluid delivery, introduces the AS Cargo, a performance hydration pack with a fresh take on lightweight expandable design. Comfortable and easy to use, the AS Cargo is an efficient pack to carry on all outdoor pursuits.

Thoughtfully designed, the AS Cargo’s main compartment contains an expanding zipper for added gear storage space, and its Air Scoop back features large air channeling pods to increase airflow between your back and the pack. The performance sternum strap has a tri-point strap mount for a customized fit, while the removable waist belt keeps the pack in place during active sports such as running or cycling.

The AS Cargo features ample internal and external pockets, a key clip and a fleece-lined sunglasses pocket. A Hydratunes™ cord port allows an IPOD or mp3 player to be easily accessed, and a zipper accesses the insulated reservoir pocket and expansion gussets. The AS Cargo offers a 70 oz reservoir, which provides enough water for up to 2-3 hours of exercise.

The core of the AS Cargo’s hydration technology is Hydrapak’s reversible reservoir, making cleaning and drying a cinch. The Plug-N-Play connector system allows the drink tube to be removed from the reservoir while it is being filled with liquid, and the Easy-Flo bite valve features a one-hand shut off and is angled for ease of use.
