Magnetic Backpack Tube Holder

Jul 12, 2020 - Being one that spends a lot of time outdoors mountain biking and hiking, I am constantly using my CamelBak, which is a backpack with a water pouch and a built in drink tube.  Previously, the backpack had a poorly working clip to secure the tube when not in use.  This was keeping my eyes off the trail, and I needed a solution.

So, I designed a replacement using two strong magnets.  This way, the tube could stay securely in place when not in use, and be easily accessible when needed.

Although super simple, this project shows how 3D printing can be used to improve and fix everyday products.  If you own a CamelBak, go ahead and print this CamelHack!
