About Camelbak

Camelbak was created when paramedic and cycling enthusiast Michael Eidson took part in the Texas 100-mile road race "Hotter'N Hell 100" in 1989. To keep himself hydrated, he fills an IV bag with water, puts it in a sock and stuffs it in his jersey. With a hose over his shoulder, he clamps it in place with a clothespin. The first hands-free hydration system was invented. Camelbak is now part of the Vista Outdoor Group and has over 150 employees. The company's headquarter is in Petaluma, California.
