CamelBak is a sport equipment company based in Petaluma, California, known mainly for its hydration products, such as hydration packs and water bottles. It provides solutions for sports enthusiasts as well as for the U.S. military and law enforcement agencies around the world. The concept of hydration bags started with a simple need of thirst in 1988. A biker needed water during a race but the lack of time precluded him from fulfilling his bottle. That`s why Eidson, a medical technician, came up with a solution that allows drinking while pedaling. Hands-free hydration was born. CamelBak hired a cyclist who sold the bags and in 1993 and started to expand the activities. CamelBak has become the world`s leading maker of hydration solutions.
