Do you love your hydration pack? Or do you hate it? November 26 2013, 0 Comments

We get a lot of compliments about our packs. Some of the best are "I forgot it was there" and "It's surprisingly comfortable". Music to our ears and exactly what we tried to design. With 24 oz of water storage, lots of room on the shoulder pockets, and a rear cargo area for extra stuff, you're set for a good day of trail or road running.

Runners World Gear of the Year-Transition and Seat Wrap November 11 2013, 0 Comments

Orange Mud receives Gear of the Year award from Runners World

Life is funny. We worked like mad on our HydraQuiver series through hundreds of changes, somewhere around 60 prototypes between the three model years, and countless hours of testing to get it right. The Transition and Seat Wrap? Well there were quite a few revisions, maybe 6 or 7 to get it right. I guess sometimes it's the simpler things that make a big difference. Today we're so grateful to see our product as the #1 Gear of the Year award in the Runner's World December issue. Please pick up a copy to support them and hey, while you're at it grab a wrap too ok? ;-)

Thanks! ~Orange Mud.

Orange Mud Releases 2014 HydraQuiver November 08 2013, 0 Comments

Orange Mud Releases 2014 HydraQuiver

Corona, CA, November 8, 2013 –

Tired of bouncing and sloshing hydration packs? Solution found, meet the HydraQuiver™. The HydraQuiver is a bottle based hydration system that keeps your workouts simple. Just grab the bottle, fill, place in pack and go. No bladders to clean, a small foot print on your back to keep temperature in check, and easy access to your nutrition. 

The 2014 HydraQuiver build was just released and is sporting some nice modifications from the previous version. Pack weight has been reduced by 10.5% to a mere 314 grams. The shoulder area has been slightly elongated with increased cushion for additional long range comfort. Both shoulder pockets are now using a super elastic material for even more storage of gels, phone, and nutritional supplements. There were 32 changes overall, all very minor to add new features, comfort, or function.

From a material perspective there are some functional and cosmetic changes too. A switch to the 400x300 denier nylon creates an engineered and eye appealing look while still maintaining the high quality and breath-ability those have to come expect from Orange Mud. At the base of the pack is a laser cut durable polymer material for lashing down jackets, shirts, or whatever else you need to secure. This same material is used in the upper portion of the pack for a laser cut headphone port so you can listen to your tunes throughout your long runs. There are 5 color options to chose from based upon customer feedback. Black is currently released, with Pink, Gray, Tan and Fluorescent orange available by 11/30. Sewn in the US, some materials domestic, some foreign, but cut, sewn and engineered here in the US.

About Orange Mud

Our philosophy at Orange Mud is very simple, make the most efficient, well crafted, American manufactured gear. Our design team has spent years competing in adventure racing, ultras, mountain bike racing, trail running, marathons, Ironman and some awfully fun outdoor adventures. Years of training for these events has often left us searching for the next best thing, but many times it's just not there. So we figure someone has to make it, why not us? We have 4 products currently. The HydraQuiver single and double bottle systems are both ultra light, ultra breathable hydration systems. The Transition & Seat Wrap™ is a multi-function wrap that keeps your towel from falling off when changing into workout gear and protects your car seat from sweat and grime after a good workout. Lastly, the SUP SIP, a pack for the stand up paddle board community was released this summer. For more information on Orange Mud, and to learn about our development projects, please visit us at www.orangemud.com.

Outdoor Retailer Pavillion multi-host #Night3PavilionParty July 20 2013, 0 Comments

Salt Lake City, UT - To encourage outdoor retailers and media to take those extra few steps to the Pavilion at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, a group of growing brands (Orange Mud included of course) are banding together to throw a simultaneous, multi-hosted happy hour on night three of ORSM.

Know as #Night3PavilionParty, the happy hour will begin at 5pm on Friday, August 2nd, and will celebrate three of the outdoor industry's traditional strengths: entrepreneurship, innovation, and a cold beer with friends. An open-invite event, the #Night3PavilionParty encourages other Pavilion exhibitors to host their own events at the same time, and to promote them with the #Night3PavilionParty and #ORShow hash tags. 

At Orange Mud we know a thing or two about hydration. During our day job we focus on liquid that keeps you hydrated, at nights our gear works equally well as a beer holder. Stop by to grab a cold one on us at the Outdoor Pavilion, #ORSHOW, on Friday, 8/2, in Salt Lake City, UT.

Looking for Orange Mud gear? Live in the Little Rock, AR area? Stop by the Go Running store for all your running gear and apparel. While there pick up some Orange Mud gear! Thanks for being a customer!

http://gorunning.com

From their site:

It’s not just about us, it’s about you, too.

While running is a simple sport, it can be intimidating to get started and confusing on how to get better. Questions like, “What shoes do I need?, ”How do I run without getting hurt?”, “What kind of clothes should I wear?”, “Where can I train?” . . . are just a few of many that runners and walkers of all levels struggle to answer. Finding a place to get these answers can be even more challenging.

That’s where Go! Running comes in.

The owners, Gary Taylor and Frank O’Mara, met as scholarship athletes on John McDonnell’s heralded track and cross country teams that began the Arkansas legacy; where they learned it takes more than just individual talent to run at any level – it takes a team.

For years, they have been giving back to runners by speaking at events, mentoring athletes, and coaching school track and cross country teams – that have included all their children! With this wealth of experience, they know what runners need and will create a running community around the store to benefit all levels of runners.

Go! Running gives this experience and knowledge a home.  A place to get the answers to help you become the runner you want to be.

"Change It Up" Transition and Seat Wrap Commercial from Orange Mud July 12 2013, 0 Comments

The Transition & Seat Wrap from Orange Mud is the answer to parking lot and trail head gear changes as well as keeping that clean seat of yours...well, clean! We designed the wrap with the simple goal of not having your towel fall off while changing from regular clothes to run/bike/surf/etc gear. It stays around your waist securely via a built in belt clip. The second feature of the towel is the zip on hoodie, which you slip over your seat back in your car so when you sit down, the wrap does not slide off your seat. Made in the USA

Looking for Orange Mud gear? Live in Salt Lake City? Stop by the Salt Lake Running Company store for all your running gear and apparel. While there pick up some Orange Mud gear! Thanks for being a customer!

http://saltlakerunningco.com/

From their site:

Salt Lake Running Company has been keeping Utah’s runners happy and running since 1995. Originally named Sporting Soles, we changed our name to let you know that we’re all about running. That means our staff, our products, our programs and our customer support are all about supporting you in the sport.

Our staff is comprised of some of the most enthusiastic and accomplished runners around. Owners Guy and Debbie Perry have assembled a staff of runners who are knowledgeable about anatomy, physiology, kinesiology and nutrition. In addition, we have experience in coaching, training and retail. Ongoing training ensures that we stay on top of the latest innovations in running shoes and apparel. Because we’re all runners, you’re likely to see us running along your favorite routes or in local races.

While we have experience running both track and cross country in high school and college, most of us are equally comfortable running with baby joggers and dogs these days. We also enjoy participating in 5ks to marathons and even triathlons.

Our products are chosen to support you in your running. We carry running shoes, socks, insoles, apparel, nutritional supplements, gels, hydration equipment, running books and more. We see running as a life-long endeavor. When we sell you a pair of shoes, we think about your needs as a runner—your stride, your foot strike, your foot dimensions and the terrain you cover.

We also provide a biomechanical analysis. That means we’ll record your stride on a treadmill and show it back to you in slow motion so we can see if you’re a pronator, a forefoot striker or a supinator. Best of all, it’s free! We’ll then show you the shoes that are best for you.

Because we believe that Utah is an incredible place to live a running lifestyle, we sponsor several races and fun runs each year, including the competitive USATF road racing circuit and the relaxed and non-competitive Sports AM running events, as well as the Tri Utah Triathlons. Because we’re interested in supporting young runners, we even sponsor some high school meets.

Whatever your needs, whatever your level of running, we’re here to support you and to keep you running.

irunfar.com review of the HydraQuiver by Orange Mud March 21 2013, 0 Comments

Review by irunfar.com - online - 3/21/13 - posted to www.facebook.com/orangemud and irunfar.com

Hand, waist, back… bladder, bottle… plastic, stainless… it seems that the options for hydration continue to expand with every new season. The reasons for this are simple: water is an essential part of our sport and a pain-in-the-butt to carry. While some folks get creative with water bottle drops and other trail-side solutions, most of us have to face the fact that we need to carry some water with us on a regular basis. And, thankfully, companies continue to try to give us options for doing so.

Orange Mud is a relatively recent entry into the market. Based in California, this small company is producing USA-made and endurance-athlete-specific products. Their current headliner is the HydraQuiver ($85): a single-bottle, back-slung pack....see the rest of the Review by Irunfar.com, click here
