Camelbak started as an idea born from the most basic human need – thirst! In 1989, to survive a bike race in the grueling summer heat of Texas, Michael Eidson invented the Camelbak by filling an IV bag with water, slipping it into a white tube sock, stuffing the contraption into the back of his bike jersey and throwing the thin hose over his shoulder to drink. The hands-free hydration was born! Today, Camelbak – as the world’s leading maker of hydration solutions – delivers better hydration so you can do more of what you love. Wherever sport is practiced, you will find Camelbak reservoirs, backpacks, bottles and accessories.
