The integration of Hydrapak technology into the German market further entrenches Hydrapak as the premium global supplier of custom hydration systems for brands across the cycling, running, hiking, and moto industry.

Vaude is an innovative and well-respect brand, and we are proud to help them advance their hydration offerings.”

Unique additional features such as the Plug-N-Play [removable hose system] emphasize the innovative power of our new partner.”
