What’s in a Name - Orange Mud? We get asked about the company name quite a bit, I guess it is a little different, so here is how the story goes. I've logged countless hours running over the years. The scenery, adventure and calm never gets old, but drinking from random packs, vests, and hydration belts just never felt right. Throughout many of these journeys, I’ve bought and modified all kinds of gear, but the perfect one never appeared. At times I found stashing bottles along the trails to be a decent solution, but have you ever seen a random dog, coyote or odd person on the trail and wonder hmmmm, is my bottle still clean or will it be there on my next loop?
