Hydration without Limitation – Matador Introduces Packable Bottle

Packable one-liter water bottle is Matador’s latest travel innovation

BOULDER, Colo. (Dec. 11, 2019) – Matador Packable Adventure Gear, the award-winning producer of portable travel gear, today introduced the Matador Packable Bottle, a one-liter container that weighs only 70 grams and compresses nearly flat to save space when empty. The new product furthers Matador’s mission of making travel and adventure easier and more convenient.

“The packable bottle is there when you need it and nearly disappears when you don’t,” said Chris Clearman, Founder and CEO of Matador. “Water bottles are everyday essentials, but most reusable bottles are bulky and heavy. The Packable Bottle is significantly lighter than other bottles and offers the added benefit of freeing up space when empty. Whether traveling through airport security, heading out on a hike or exploring a city, the Packable Bottle is a perfect companion.”

Matador’s Packable Bottle features a Hypalon handle, a removable cap to keep the mouthpiece clean, a locking bite valve to prevent leaks and a full-length straw to allow upright drinking. The bottle’s zippered bottom enables easy filling and cleaning, and the innovative, folded design strengthens the zipper’s seal when pressure is applied (certified to withstand more than 100 pounds of pressure). The Packable Bottle is made of BPA- and PVC-free thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), with printed markings to indicate liquid volume.


The Packable Bottle joins Matador’s FlatPak Series in the war against single-use plastics. The FlatPak Series, which also includes a Soap Bar Case and Toiletry Bottle, offers accessories that are significantly lighter and more compact than traditional accessories, and eliminates the need for disposable, plastic items.

“Solving travel challenges will always be our central mission but working toward a more sustainable future is also critical,” said Clearman. “Ultimately, we want to make travelers’ lives easier, while helping preserve the beautiful and loved places where they travel.”

The Packable Bottle (MSRP: $34.99) is available now at select retailers and online at
