Gearheads like designs that offer multiple useful functions. The CamelBak MultiBev brings this ethos to drinkware with a sustainable vessel that cuts the clutter and offers multiple beverage options for life in the fast lane.

The MultiBev is an everyday water bottle that incorporates a travel cup for a second drink on the go. It has great potential for day hikes and camping, too.

Stainless steel bottles are a more environmentally conscious choice than single-use plastics. The addition of the companion travel cup eliminates another wasteful cup from the local café, and it fits back under the water bottle to save space when not in use.

If you carry water while running errands or commuting, yet often stop at a café for coffee or tea in a disposable cup, this is worth a look.

At its core, the CamelBak MultiBev is a convenient way to bring an accessory cup along with your usual water bottle. How it’s put to use really depends on you.

On hiking days, you can use the travel cup on the way to the trailhead and then leave it in the car. That streamlines the bottle for an easier fit in a backpack pocket. It also frees up a little room under the cap for stashing a snack.

On hot summer expeditions, the travel cup can be used for an electrolyte refuel during a break. Then, you can return it to the main bottle when you’re done.

Around the campsite, the second cup works for coffee in the morning and suds in the evening. When not in use, stash it back with the water bottle so there’s one less thing clanking around the site.

Really, though, the MultiBev has everyday functionality in mind, especially for the work commute.

A Part of Your Routine

Here’s a hypothetical day in the life to see how a MultiBev could fit into your hydration routine.

We suggest that you wake up and hydrate with a glass of water. We’ve heard that’s really good for you.

While you wait for your coffee or tea to be ready, unscrew the travel cup from the bottom.

Next, fill the main chamber of the bottle with water and secure with the leakproof Pak Cap. Go ahead and stash that in your bag or purse.

Once your caffeine fix is ready, pour that in the travel cup, unroll the silicone lid, and you’re off.

At your workplace, you can rinse out the travel cup and reunite it with the regular water bottle. The silicone lid rolls up to fit inside the Pak Cap.

Design Highlights

  • Double-wall vacuum, stainless steel construction to maintain temperature for hours
  • Stainless steel interior and powder coat finish are dishwasher safe
  • Silicon base adds grip, especially on wet surfaces
  • Leakproof Pak Cap
  • BPA, BPS, and BPF free.


Carrying your own water is a way to ensure that you drink enough daily, which prevents the out-of-sight, out-of-mind trap.

The MultiBev isn’t about drinking water from your own cup, although that’s certainly an option. It’s a solution for people who often carry water bottles but still use other single-use cups.

By combining the cup as part of the body of the bottle, the companion travel cup is around if you need it and doesn’t take up room when you don’t.

What’s more, the bottle and cup are dishwasher safe, which goes a long way in preventing them from getting gunked up. And the silicone base should keep it from sliding on surfaces and potentially save it from some dings out in the wild.
