Camelbak products allow for hands free hydration in all activities, save hassle, time, space and even lives. Camelbak is a household name, but their reputation came from a humble beginning, in a story that is as ingenious as it is basic.
The year is 1988, and Michael Eidson is in a cycling race dubbed the “Hotter’N Hell 100”. The 100-mile road race happens in Wichita Falls, Texas in the Hellish heat of summer, and with only few spots to stop and refill water bottles, experienced EMT Eidson came up with an alternative. Eidson took an IV bag, filled it with water and cased it in a common tube sock. He then drops the contrivance down the back of his cycling jersey, with the thin hose over his shoulder clamped with a clothes pin. Just like that, the concept was born. Over the next five years the device grew to be more sophisticated, and the rest has been history.
