In the beginning the hydration pack was laughed at - but then this simple and ingenious idea set out to conquer the world.
When Michael Eidson participated in the 1988 "Hotter'N Hell 100" race in Texas, he had an innovative idea. He filled an IV bag with water, and slipped it into a sock, which he then put into his backpack and attached a thin tube over his shoulder, letting him drink while riding. The idea of the hydration pack was born!
It was not easy to get the company started, and the men behind Camelbak were often laughed at and not taken seriously. However, the Camelbak hydration system has now become an integral part of the world of sports, with several companies using this simple and ingenious system in their products.
At Bobshop, you will find the hydration packs but also the necessary accessories, such as cleaning kits, reservoir dryers and tube extenders.
