The patented magnetic retractable reel keeps your drink tube held securely within easy reach.

Great for cyclists, runners, hikers, and anyone who likes to use a hydration backpack. The LapelEau connects easily to backpack straps, or any webbing, keeping the hydration tube close at hand and under control
The patented reels are made in the USA by the original inventors and manufacturers of the classic badge reels used for decades to secure employee badges, key rings, etc. To keep the drinking tube from flopping around on your pack they added rare earth neodymium ring magnets on the tube clip providing just enough retention force to keep tube where you want it. These are strong magnets. Keep them away from cell phones, credit cards, and electronics!
