GEAR LAB

The Orange Mud Gear Laboratory is always brewing something good. We can only share so much, but here's the run down on some new projects in prototype stage now. All of which have been and will be Made in the USA.

      • Mountain bike hydration pack - Launch Fall 2015.
        • We're a passionate crew of mountain bikers here at Orange Mud. Having all these fun running products without our other love has been painful. So stay tuned, mountain biking is about to get some mud on it.
      • Adventure Racing / Ultra stage racing pack - Launch Spring 2016.
        • This thing is going to be pretty wicked. Pack all your key gear for your long haul stage races, but you'll have a pack that is super stable while running. Delivering some micro tweaks to the conventional pack design and footprint has achieved some surprising stability. 
      • Ultra Racing Drop Bags / Or call it a wicked car utility bag. Kind of launched, we have the bags that go in the gym bag that work great for this and have backed off on the higher end drop bag for now. 
        • Waterproof, holds your gear securely and organized, and cost-effective. 
      • "UHTP" Urban Hipster Trippy Pack - July 2015
        • Backpack meet Gatling gun. Where art meets function and yes it's overkilled in every way, just like we like it. 
          • The Gear Organizer - Spring 2016
            • This one is fun. Think high-end hardware, parachute webbing, then organize your stuff. This is awesome in a car, tent, the garage, or the kitchen. Simple, functional, and to the point. 
          • OCR (Obstacle Course Racer) Pack - Spring 2016
            • Say what? Yup, a lot of OCR peeps have been picking up our single and double barrel HydraQuiver's which work great, but we have more options coming. 
          • Many other top secret projects!
            • We've got some fun ideas in the works, can't share these yet!
              • Designed and manufactured in the USA

            Currently launched

            • HydraQuiver Vest Pack VP1 (Single bottle system) April 2015
                • Similar to the current vest pack, except in a single bottle configuration. 
            • GearQuiver - March 2015
                • We've had a lot of request for a version of our HydraQuiver that is scaled down just to carry accessories, no hydration. 
            • "TMGB" The Modular Gym Bag - January 2015
              • Most gym bags are not organized well, bulky, don't protect your wetstuff, and well, quality just isn't there. This one is a whole different beast being about 20% larger than the normal bag, using high end hardware, webbing and materials, as well as being modularized. We're pumped about this! 
            • HydraQuiver Vest Pack VP2 - June 2014
              • The Hydraquiver with more material, more storage and a more common "vest" style design. We still love our single and double bottle configs, but for those wanting some more storage and a more traditional vest style fit, this is the pack for you. We have some other fun tricks up our sleeve on this one too, our friends in ultra and trail running will dig it! 
            • HydraQuiver 2014 Single and Double - Released!
              • More tweaks for 2014, around 40 at last count! Same footprint but a slightly longer shoulder area, elastic pockets for super stretch pack-ability, reflective logo, new bottle holder config, reduced weight, softer binding and some fun new materials. Colors, black, coyote tan, flight jacket gray, neon pink and fluorescent orange. 
            • Modular pocket for vest packOctober 2014
              • This is a complimentary add-on for the vest pack for accessory storage. 
            • Handheld bottle holder - September 2014
              • We've had a lot of request for this, so it's in the works and will be released soon, stay tuned!
            • Orange Mud Headband - February 2014
              • Pure awesomeness with this little beast. Simple, to the point, but different than anything else out there. Just wait!
