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.

  • HydraQuiver Vest Pack VP2 - Launched!
    • 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 Vest Pack SB1 (Single bottle system) - Spring 2015
    • Similar to the current vest pack, except in a single bottle configuration. 
  • HydraQuiver Vest Micro (Not sure what we'll call it!) - Launch spring 2015.
    • We've had a lot of request for a version of our HydraQuiver that is scaled down just to carry accessories, no hydration. So stay tuned, it's coming! 
  • Modular pocket for vest pack - Launch end of July 2014. 
    • This is a complimentary add on for the vest pack for accessory storage. 
  • Mountain bike back pack - Launch Spring 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, Orange Mud that is....
  • Adventure Racing / Ultra stage racing pack - Launch Spring 2015.
    • 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. Sneak peak available at Outdoor Retailer 2014 in Salt Lake.
  • Ultra Racing Drop Bags / Or call it a wicked car utility bag. Launch spring 2015, maybe a surprise earlier. 
    • Waterproof, holds your gear securely and organized, and cost effective. 
  • Urban Hipster Pack - Launch spring 2015...maybe sooner....
    • Backpack meet Gatling gun. Seriously, this thing is a piece of art. Sneak peak at Outdoor Retailer 2014
  • Handheld bottle holder - Launch early September!
    • 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 - Released!
    • Pure awesomeness with this little beast. Simple, to the point, but different than anything else out there. Just wait!
    • 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. 
    • Hydration System - Target Release Spring 2015
      • We have a new patent pending system for making hydration simple. Soft launch at TRE of prototypes was a great success and our testers have been digging it, can't say much more for now. Just think simple, efficient, and a good thing to have.
      • Bike Lock Down - Target Release Summer 2015
        • New security system for locking down your bike on your rack. Very different, still not sure it's gonna work!
      • 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
