Hatch Disturbance Control Gear Now Offered With New Hydration System

December 07, 2005
Oxnard, CA

New for its 2006 line-up Hatch introduces the HUEX100 Hydration Reservoir and Sleeve for compatible use with both its Centurion™ (CPX2500) and ExoTech™ (EXO1000) disturbance control chest gear. This system, the Model HUEX100 consists of a 70 ounce capacity Nalgene® reservoir that is both taste-free and odor-free and also features a patented non-leak bite valve. It comes complete with a durable black 600 denier woven sleeve for insulation and protection of the bladder.

Both the soft Centurion™ Upper Body and Shoulder and the Exo-Tech Hard Shell Disturbance Control System has been updated for 2006 to include attachment points for securely adding the HUEX100 Hydration System to the chest gear, allowing for on demand hydration during the rigors of duty that cannot be interrupted. The HUEX100 is sold separately and is offered at $46.00. The newly updated 2006 Centurion CPX2500 has an MSRP of $94.35, and the ExoTech EXO1000 hard shell suit is offered at $765.00. These new versions are scheduled for January availability.
