A brisk trail run at dawn through fog rolling in off the Pacific. Pedaling out of the saddle to switchback into the hills above Oakland. Traversing the trails and timeless vistas of the Sierra Crest. Yosemite, the Redwoods, Lake Tahoe, the Lost Coast—we live where nature and opportunity intersect with daily access. In our Northern California home, outdoor inspiration exists at every turn in the trail and along every mile of the ride—driving us further. It drives us to wake early and stay out until the last slivers of sunlight fade in the west—making the most of each day with an uncompromising natural charge. At HydraPak, it drives us to do more, and to go beyond.
Polar Beverage can trace its history to a spring water company founded in 1882 and purchased by a distiller named Dennis Crowley to enhance his own whiskey business. Since then the company has been under continuous ownership, and operation by four generations of the Crowley family in the heart of New England.
Based in Worcester, Massachusetts, Polar Beverages has remained a beloved hometown favorite while growing into a national cult favorite. As consumer tastes have evolved so has Polar Beverages’ ability to innovate and meet the growing demand for sparkling refreshment. From their heritage recipes, such as Polar Orange Dry and Birch Beer, to the playful introduction of modern seasonal Polar Seltzers, the people of Polar Beverages continue to love what they do and work hard to uphold the values of its founder.
I started Handzies in 2016 because I wanted a way for my family to
wash our hands more, especially when we were out and about (which was all the time). No one liked any of the other portable cleaning
options…baby wipes were something we were all past and goopy hand
sanitizing gels just smeared stuff around and left our hands dry and
smelling like a doctors office. Plus, I was worried about using too
many things with harsh chemicals especially when we were about to eat.
