History: The Long Run

Built for Medium to Ultra Long Endeavors, M.U.L.E. is the most recognized name in bike hydration. First designed for mountain bikers back in ’95, the M.U.L.E. has a history almost as long as the brand itself. Since then—thanks to its sleek silhouette and massive hydration capabilities—MTB’s best friend has become a favorite for day hikers and trail runners too.

The M.U.L.E. has grown from the lone leader in packs to a full family of hydration solutions, including the Kids’ Mini M.U.L.E.®, all-weather EVO and our work-ready Commute Packs. And as the originators of hands-free hydration, it’s only natural we’d include our signature Crux™ reservoir. With an epic three liters of water-carrying capacity (1.5 for the Mini), M.U.L.E. + Crux makes hydrating easy, no matter where the day takes you.

Designed to include everything you need and nothing you don’t, our flagship pack just keeps getting better. Each new iteration comes with improvements inspired by your feedback and perfected by our product teams.

CamelBak Chronicles | NEW M.U.L.E. 12 & Giro

In January of 2020, Giro’s Apparel Product Manager & Developer Margaux Elliott took the challenge of rising to the occasion literally. Margaux resolved to climb one million feet on her mountain bike. For those about to Google the distance: it’s equivalent to completing the Tour de France route six times…on dirt, going up. Through it all, hydration is key, and that’s why Margaux relies on the trusty M.U.L.E. pack as the go-to solution for hydration and gear storage.
