Camelbak Water Bottles
Camelbak water bottles were invented in 1988 when a bicyclist named Michael Eidson was competing in a race in Texas in the high summer heat. Knowing there weren't many chances to hydrate along the way during his 100 mile race competition, he came up with the idea of filling an IV bag with water, placed it in a sock and threw it in the back of his shirt. He then proceeded to throw the tube over his shoulder and clamped it shut with a clothespin. Michael could continue pedaling while hydrating hands free.
