It is 1988 and Michael Eidson, a bicycle enthusiast, is competing in an epic 100 miler cycling race in the heat of summer in Wichita Falls, Texas. With limited water available, Eidson decides to fill an IV bag with water and carry it with him in a tube sock inside his bike jersey. Wrapping the IV bag hose over his shoulder, he clamps it down with a clothespin and cycles off into the sunset. CamelBak hydration is born.
Let's tell another story.
When we openedFind Your Feet we began hunting around for the best trail running equipment and apparel on the market. When it came to trail running vest packs we know we needed the light, the race specific and the most durable. Whilst technically CamelBak meets most of these requirements, it performs exceptionally in the latter - durability!
CamelBak has great values
So what is it that makes CamelBak so awesome?
Firstly, one thing we love about CamelBak is their willingness to give back to the community and the environment. CamelBak have been making meaningful steps to reduce their carbon footprint, including reducing water waste, saving energy, eliminating toxic emissions and putting an end to the use of harmful chemicals. Social responsibility is high on their list too. Check out their We Know Water: Education Campaign.
CamelBak Antidote Reservoir
As CamelBak started with creating bladders, any discussion on CamelBak wouldn't be complete without discussion their 2L CamelBak Antidote Reservoir. Compared to earlier versions, the 2L CamelBak Antidote Reservoir now has a broader mouth opening, large handle which is easy to grab for filling, two chambers for water so there is less water sloshing and a removable hose. The design also allows it to dry easily to prevent mould growing inside the reservoir.
What stands out for us about the 2L CamelBak Antidote Reservoir is the opening. While a lot of brands have moved to zip-tops, CamelBak has stuck with the twist top. With this style of opening, it is our favourite bladder. And of course, it is BPA free!
CamelBak Forge Travel Mugs
A day working at Find Your Feet would never be complete without our CamelBak Forge or CamelBak Groove Travel Mugs. We love to travel with them but we especially love to work with them because we all know how frustrating it is to make that perfect cup of tea and then leave it to get cold when the distractions set in. Never again! Pop it in your CamelBak Forge travel mug and you can still be sipping on it 4 hours later!
CamelBak Water Bottles
And how about the CamelBak bottles. At Find Your Feet we stock:
The entire CamelBak water bottle range is compatible with CamelBak All Clear UV Purifier. The CamelBak All Clear UV Purifier has got to be the best purification system on the market. What we love about this purification system is that it only takes 60 seconds to go from rank to swank water! All you have to do is screw the CamelBak All Clear UV Purifier onto your CamelBak water bottle, hit the on button, and swish the water around for 60 seconds. Too easy!
