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.

  • Vest style HydraQuiver single/double bottle - In production! Launch late spring 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! 
  • Modular pocket for vest pack - launch summer 2014.
    • This is a complimentary add on for the vest pack for accessory storage. 
  • Mountain bike back pack - launch fall 2014
    • 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....
  • Urban Hipster Pack - launch spring 2015 
    • Backpack meet Gatling gun. Seriously, this thing is a piece of art. 
  • Long haul Ultra Racing Pack - launch spring 2015 
    • Think the Double Barrel times two and then add a bit more. We're working to cover all the hydration bases, regardless of distance. 
  • Handheld bottle holder - Launch spring 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 - 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 Summer 2014
      • 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 2014
        • New security system for locking down your bike on your rack. Very different, still not sure it's gonna work!
      • 11 other top secret projects!
        • We've got some fun ideas in the works, can't share these yet!
          • Designed and manufactured in the USA
