CamelBak® Partners With Protect Our Winters
The two-year partnership aims to amplify Protect Our Winters’ advocacy efforts through event and social campaigns, education and future product collaboration

PETALUMA, Calif. (Nov. 14, 2022) – Today, CamelBak®, the global leader in award-winning personal hydration products, announces its partnership with Protect Our Winters (POW), a leading climate advocacy organization dedicated to protecting the places we love and lifestyles we live for future generations. As a partner, CamelBak will work closely with POW to further amplify its mission and vision through community events, social messaging and advocacy training for CamelBak employees.

"CamelBak is dedicated to ensuring our climate remains healthy for us to enjoy the outdoor activities we love most,” says Jessa Sargent, brand partnership manager for CamelBak. “Our passion for supporting organizations who are focused on making the outdoors accessible through various initiatives, now includes another climate action partner in Protect Our Winters. We’re excited to be working alongside POW to support their impactful work so that current and future generations can continue to play outside no matter the season.”

CamelBak joins POW’s brand alliance among some of the most recognized outdoor brands including Patagonia, REI, Giro and BUFF. The partnership will include event activations in the U.S., both digitally and in-person, beginning with POW’s newest sector, POW Bike.

Furthermore, CamelBak will receive advocacy training to help grow and mobilize what POW calls the Outdoor State, or the 100 million people who recreate outdoors in the U.S. The training will better prepare CamelBak’s staff and customers to advocate for efforts at all levels of government that will reduce emissions, pollution and stabilize temperatures. For winter 2023, CamelBak plans to produce limited edition collaborative products that will raise awareness and support POW’s work.

“CamelBak’s partnership with POW will open up new opportunities to grow the outdoor state,” says Mario Molina, executive director of Protect Our Winters. “CamelBak is making great strides toward becoming a more sustainable brand and a major part of that is advocating for policies that will grow clean energy and transportation solutions and reduce emissions on a global scale. We're looking forward to seeing how their influence in the outdoor community will help POW continue to protect the places we love and lifestyles we live.”

CamelBak and POW officially kicked off the brand partnership on August 15, 2022 which will extend for two years until August 15, 2024.
