Hydrapak was launched in 1996, Hydrapak was introduced to satisfy the growing demand from cyclists for personal hydration systems. Relying on input from professional athletes and feedback from a large staff of avid cyclists and product testers, the Hydrapak line was continuously refined to ensure the products met buyers' hydration needs. By 2001 this strategy had paid off, Hydrapak had become one of the leading providers of personal hydration systems.

In October 2001, Matt Lyon purchased Hydrapak after a major reorganization of its original owner. A passionate cyclist with extensive management and product development experience, Lyon has most recently worked with Marin Mountain Bikes and Atlas Snowshoe Company. The newly formed company, Hydrapak, is focused on creating the best personal hydration systems available for any activity where hands-free fluid delivery is needed.

Hydrapak LLC. is based in Oakland, California.
