AN IDEA BORN FROM THE MOST BASIC HUMAN NEED - THIRST

It's 1989. Bicycle enthusiast Michael Eidson is competing in the Texas "Hotter'N Hell 100" a 100-mile road race. Water is vital to surviving the race and as an emergency medical technician by trade, he fills an IV bag with water, slips it into a sock and stuffs it into his jersey. With a hose over his shoulder, he clamps it with a clothespin. Hands-free hydration is born.

THE REST IS HISTORY

Courage, conviction and imagination. It evolved from an IV bag in a tube sock sold by a motorcycle-driven sales force of one. Our core values remain the same and drive everything we do - from inventing the hydration category to becoming the world's leading maker of hydration solutions. Oh yeah...about those folks who laughed at Eidson? Well, chances are they've got a CamelBak strapped to their back or in their bike cage these days. Go figure...

MISSION & VALUES

Our values are what makes CamelBak authentic. See what we stand for.
