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.

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.

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
