CamelBak Backpack Giveaway & Brand Spotlight

*Congratulations to Hal, who won the CamelBak giveaway. Don’t worry, there is a new giveaway going on here: Brand Spotlight Giveaway.*

Chances are you already know that CamelBak is the company that revolutionized the way people hydrate when they are biking, hiking or enjoying other activities but do you know the story behind this invention? Keep reading to learn more about this cool company and be sure to enter the CamelBak Backpack Giveaway at the bottom of this post.

In 1988, Michael Edison was competing in a 100 mile bike race in Texas. There wasn’t many options for refilling water bottles along the race course so Edison, an emergency medical technician by trade, filled an IV bag with water and slipped it into the back of his bike jersey. Using a thin tube and a clothespin to clamp it, Edison had created the first hands-free hydration device.

  • The Arizona heat will suck you dry even without physical activity. We run, climb, bike and swim (whenever we can find water) and we only have one camelback for the the three of us (four if you count the Chihuahua). It would be great to have another CamelBak so we are not sharing with him. Family love is great, but sometimes you would rather not go there. :)

  • I would love a camelbak because I do a lot of bowhunting and it would be much more convenient to not have to open my noisy backpack to get my water out.

  • I would love to win a CamelBak so that I can explore this summer! My boyfriend and I have several backpacking and hiking trips planned. He is very into rock climbing and is trying to get me into it as well. Naturally, he is very prepared with his supplies- I am not as much since I am just starting out. I would love to get a bag to take with me on our hikes so that I can be as prepared too! I’m thinking this could be the start of a great outdoor love!

  • I would love to win one for my husband, who frequently does long rail runs with his father, but only has a Camelbak waist bottle holder at the moment.

  • I would love to win a new CamelBak product as my last hydration reservoir was nibbled on by my puppy, rendering it useless the day before my backpacking trip!

  • Camelbak rules as far as wat resources. I would love to have a new water pack for my upcoming Grand Canyon Trip
