“How much noise does IcePlate make when half-full?” “Is IcePlate loud when carrying water in the field?” “How loud is IcePlate compared to Camelbak?” “How loud is IcePlate compared to a Nalgene bottle?”
We get these questions all the time, so we finally got around to testing out an IcePlate, a Camelbak, a vacuum insulated bottle (we tested a Camelbak, but it is identical to a Hydroflask or any of the hundreds of other insulated bottles on the market today) and a Nalgene bottle. We asked the question: What is the quietest way to carry water in the field?
Here is what we found out:
Here is a video showing our experimental design and how we did the test:
