|The HydraQuiver Vest Pack 1.|
The turning point to get the product moving however, was after racing in Ironman St. George. I hated waste packs and I never liked handhelds, so I stashed bottles on my runs. One day either another person or a coyote drank or peed on my bottle. I saw both at the same time as I was running a big loop. When I got home that night I decided it was time to build this thing.
How has the rest of the outdoor/endurance sports industry received the Orange Mud product line, especially the HydraQuiver? Was there initial skepticism?
- Our pack rides stable thanks to it’s position on your shoulders.
- It’s quick and easy to refill.
- Easy to see how much water you have left.
- Provides quick access to your phone, gels, nutrition or whatever you put in the shoulder pockets.
- Has a tiny heat signature compared to a big bladder pack (which traps heat on your back).
- Very easy to clean the bottle, and also to use before and after exercise.
- Can use an insulated bottle instead of the one that comes with our pack to keep your hydration cold or, on the contrary, from freezing.
