About Camelbak Relay:

“CamelBak® Relay™ reinvents home water filtration with a unique Double Filter Technology that allows you to filter at the speed of your faucet. The innovative double-filter design removes chlorine, taste, and odors twice—every time you fill and every time you pour. Made with plant based activated carbon, each Fresh™ Filter lasts twice as long as the leading competitor—up to four months. With its spill-proof locking lid and space-saving design, Relay goes from your faucet to your fridge in a snap. It’s so fast and easy, you’ll discover all kinds of new uses for filtered water, from making your morning coffee to washing fruits and vegetables. Learn more at relay.camelbak.com. 10-cup (80oz) capacity. Dishwasher safe (top rack). ”

DOUBLE FILTER TECHNOLOGY

Filter as you fill and again as you pour for great tasting water. This dual filter system is the secret to delivering freshly filtered water, fast.

FAST FILLING

The Relay Fresh Filter is pleated, which increases the amount of water that comes into contact with the filter at a time. This design allows Relay to filter water 10X faster than the leading competitor.

EFFECTIVE FILTERING

The Relay Fresh Filter is packed with plant-based activated carbon that is embedded into a non-woven material. Independent test data shows Relay removes 97% of chlorine, taste and odor (see test data here).

LOCKING LID STAYS IN PLACE

No more super slo-mo trips from the faucet to the fridge. The Relay lid snaps on and locks tight, ensuring that you won’t slosh water all over the kitchen floor.

NO SPILLS WHEN YOU POUR

CamelBak Relay filters at the speed of your faucet. This eliminates the need for a filling reservoir (located at the top of most pitchers), making Relay easy to balance and virtually impossible to spill.”

My Thoughts:

When Camelbak contacted me to share their newest product, the Camelbak relay Pitcher,  I was very excited to incorporate this product into my family’s daily routine. Between filling up glasses of drinking water, filling up a blender, filling up the coffee maker, filling up the dog bowl and other kitchen necessities, we require quite a bit of filtered water in a day’s time! Though we have a large filter jug that we keep in the kitchen, this Camelbak pitcher fits into our routine nicely, as it:

-Fits on a refridgerator shelf (our other, larger filter does not)

-(Seriously) filters water as fast as it comes out of the faucet–it’s amazing to watch.

-Holds enough water to fill up several glasses of water-

-Doesn’t leak as you pour (most filters, from my experience, leak and make a mess!)

-Is BPA free, like other Camelbak products

My scrutiny is that with the convenience of quick, filtered water, comes a compromise in how many impurities can be filtered out (understandably so). For a quick way to minimize chlorine and bad taste, this pitcher gets the job done!
