Innovation was the inception of CamelBak? in 1988 when a biking enthusiast competing in a 100-mile road race in Texas came up with a way to stay hydrated while pedaling. His solution was to fill an IV bag with water, stuff it in a tube sock, slip the contraption into the back of his bike jersey and clamp the hose to his shoulder with a clothespin ? brilliant. CamelBak? created hands-free hydration and proceeded to create and conquer the portable hydration category by becoming the world?s leading maker of hydration solutions. The range of products includes glass and BPA-free polypropylene water bottles, water filtration pitchers, insulated bottles, portable filtration bottles and plant-based carbon refill filters. Great tasting filtered water is always within reach when you invest in a Groove? portable filtration water bottle. Keep kids hydrated with the Eddy? water bottle designed for easy drinking or enjoy on all of your adventures with the Chute? water bottle.
