CamelBak Brand Spotlight and Giveaway

Not wanting to deal with his water bottle during a 100 mile cycling road race, Michael Eidson opted for an IV bag instead. Eidson, who was an EMT by trade, filled an IV with water, stuffed it in a tub sock and draped the hose over his shoulder while the bag rested in the back pocket of his cycling jersey. He used a clothespin to cinch the hose shut when he wasn't taking sips.

That was in 1989. The idea that formed CamelBak -- hands-free hydration -- continues to drive the brand today. With hydration reservoirs and backpacks to quench your thirst whether you're cycling, hiking, trail running or skiing, CamelBak has hydration down.

If you're on the lookout for day packs, water bottles and more from CamelBak, check out Sierra Trading Post. We've got the goods at everyday value prices. Take a look at some CamelBak products we currently have available.

When we take walks on the Standing stone trail and the Mid State trail it will help keep me refreshed instead of carrying bottles of water.

Hiking and exploring is always better when you are able to carry all your essentials in comfort. CamelBak products are comfortable, durable and made of quality.

I would like number 5 if I should happen to win. It's big enough to hold water for a long hike yet compact.

I tend to not drink as much when the water bottle is in a cage - a CamelBak would make my hydration process much more effecient, and my body much happier!

I could go much further with a Camelbak for hydration. Water bottles are so bulky and aren't as comfortable to carry.
HIKIN JIM
5/14/2016 at 8:22 PM
A CamelBak keeps the water weight close to my back where it won't interfere with movement over class 2 or 3 terrain. I'm planning some relatively tricky stuff this summer. Sure would be nice to have a C'bak. :)
HAL SUMMERS

MIKE S.
5/16/2016 at 8:59 PM
Keeping my hands free to deal with my kids or walking sticks or bike handlebars or whatever is important when considering hydration options. I would probably get out more if it were more convenient.
MICHELLE D
5/16/2016 at 10:35 PM

The camelbak 18 aventura hydration pack will keep me hydrated and out longer on my Sumer mountain hikes.
ALEXA F.
5/18/2016 at 6:43 PM
I have an almost decade old 9L capacity backpack with 1L water bladder that I use really often on hikes and daily use. However, I could really use something that has a larger capacity water carry AND storage capacity as I've found it would really help. The Aventura 18 backpack looks pretty killer and would probably double as my urban pack choice for Search and Rescue, especially in that gorgeous, bright blue color.
