Nothing beats being out on the trail, running a beautiful path, and enjoying the outdoors. And then nothing ruins that faster than being so far out and realizing you've run out of hydration, nutrition, or the unique gear you need to power home. Enter Orange Mud, built to power and equipment you for the long haul running with distinctive style and functional performance.
What’s in a Name - Orange Mud? They get asked about the company name quite a bit, so here is how the story goes. The team at Orange Mud has logged countless hours running over the years. The scenery, adventure and calm never gets old, but fueling from random packs, vests, and hydration belts just never felt right. Throughout many of these journeys, they've bought and modified all kinds of running gear, but the perfect one never appeared. At times they found stashing water bottles along the trails to be a decent solution, but have you ever seen a random dog, coyote or odd person on the running trail and wonder hmmmm, is my hydration bottle still clean or will it be there on my next loop?
The company started with the premise of the running hydration pack first. The concept came about one evening after a fun day of exercise and hydration frustration. After a couple glasses of wine the founder decided to take action and put some work into the concept. So he went into the garage and destroyed a gun holster, tie down, and a waist pack to build the first HydraQuiver running pack prototype. He went on a little jog with the pack and realized it was a solid concept, so he came back to tell his wife they were starting a company and needed a name. For the next three hours brainstorming was full speed trying name combos based upon trail running, dirt and his middle name which is Clay. His wife wouldn't let him name his first boy Clay, so he told her he'd turn it into the company name somehow. Unfortunately he couldn't get anything to sound right, so looking back at Kansas roots mud was a norm of life, so Clay turned to Mud and he'd always liked the color Orange so the two came together and voila...Orange Mud!
