How to Use the Paragon Hydration Pack

We all love a leakproof water bottle but sometimes you need to pivot for the occasion. Hydration backpacks haven’t been innovated in years, which is why we’re excited to introduce the Paragon Hydration Pack.

Made for hydration on the move, you can finally say goodbye to plastic, leaking reservoirs filled with warm water and hello to a pack that has your back (literally).

What is the Paragon Hydration Pack?

Our feature-packed hydration backpack is designed to elevate your outdoor adventure game. From walks, to concerts, to snow sports, and any other outdoor adventure you may have up your sleeve - this pack was made for keeping you hands-free and focused on what you’re doing without ever missing a drop.

100% Leakproof

The Paragon has a 100% leakproof 40oz reservoir designed to easily fit ice. Whether you like your water cool or as cold as the Arctic, you have full control.

Some other fun features of the hydration system + the how it makes a difference includes:

  • ColdKey™ stainless steel straw prevents plastic from sitting in your water all-day.

  • Reservoir is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning, saving you time and money with each wash


The Paragon reservoir is triple-insulated and keeps water cold for 24+ hours. In addition:

  • Water comes straight from the reservoir, meaning it keeps water from getting warm in hot temps and frozen in cold temps.

  • The back of the pack includes foam padding for comfort + breathability.

Fit to You

The Paragon can be easily adjusted to custom-fit your body + activity. Here’s how you can tweak yours:

  • The hose can be placed on either the left side or right side of the pack, depending on your preference.

  • The hose clip is magnetic, making it effortless to put your hose back after each sip.

  • The waist strap is adjustable in both length and height, or fully removable if that isn’t your jam.

  • The magnetic sternum strap keeps you from dealing with pesky loose straps, and makes taking the pack on + off easier than ever.

How to Use the Paragon Hydration Pack

Using the Paragon is simple. Check out the step-by-step for success below.

  1. Route your hose into the reservoir pocket on the left or right hand side depending on your drinking preference.

  2. Unzip the reservoir pocket. Push down, twist left and pull up on the hose connector to remove the hose. Push hose to the side and remove the reservoir from the pack.

  3. Fill reservoir up with water + ice (optional). When complete,  push the quick connect back down and twist it to the right to lock it.

  4. Adjust the magnetic sternum strap, waist strap, and magnetic hose clip to your desired placements.

  5. That’s it! Just pull to sip, and push to close. You can use your mouth or hands, whatever is easiest for you.

Important Note: Make sure to let the straw “breathe” for a second or two before closing it. This allows the remaining water in the hose to go back into the reservoir.

Where to Bring Your Paragon Hydration Pack

The Paragon is designed to enhance and simplify all of your outdoor adventures. Whether you’re taking your “hot girl” walk or spending a day out with the fam, the Paragon will keep your sips cool without losing a drop. Check out some of our favorite ways to use the Paragon.


When you’re on a trek in the outdoors, the last thing you want to do is have to carry anything extra. Instead of lugging around a tumbler or single use water bottles, strap on the Paragon and have refreshing sips ready to go whenever you need them - making hiking a breeze!

As mentioned, don’t worry about the season. The Paragon will keep your drink cold in the heat of summer and prevent your water from freezing in the winter.


Hydrating at concerts and music festivals is crucial for having a killer time. Keep your hands free for dancing and your sips cold all festival long. Don’t worry, its low-key + on-trend design won’t clash with your fit. Plus, the bag is water-resistant if you happen to find yourself in the rain, and there’s pockets for storage for all the festival necessities: think sunscreen, shades, chargers, etc.

Skiing & Snowboarding

Picture this: you're enjoying a long day on the slopes, and you need something to quench your thirst. Luckily, you've got your trusty water backpack along, but it's not as reliable as you think. As you go to take a sip, the straw is crunchy and frozen!

The Paragon Hydration pack solves this issue. Because the water stays in the reservoir, there are no chances for your beverage to freeze while you're out shredding. Bring the Paragon along on your ski and snowboard adventures without having to worry about frozen drinks.
