Folks- Mike68 asked me to post a string of emails that went back and forth between himself and Camelback. Actually a PR rep.

I'm going to remain neutral as I know how one bad apple can ruin the basket. Or rather one off-sided comment can ruin a business, or at least a niche.

If it did come from CamelBak, I would love to find out who it was. CamelBak

options, including sponsorships, partnerships and advertising. As well, we
