It all started with a simple idea, if you increase your fluid intake you'll take your performance to the next level. In 1988 bicycle enthusiast Michael Eidson, an EMT by trade, entered a 100-mile bike race where he filled an IV with water and placed it in his backpack. He sipped water through a small hose and stayed hydrated throughout the race. With that, the hydration pack was born.
