For all you athletes and adventure seekers that require personal hydration systems to keep hydrated during your sports event and favourite outdoor activity, hydrating yourself couldn’t be any easier and convenient!
The days of clumsy water bottles and canteens are a thing of the past, and with technology taking us into the new millennium, this season in 2006 will be the year of the hydration packs and convenient waist pack systems.
Whether your sport may be cycling, climbing, hunting, or mountain trekking, there is one thing you must do at all times, and that’s keeping your body full of necessary fluids so you don’t experience any sudden dehydration. Prior to the hydration bag, you had to find a place to carry a water bottle, and I can’t imagine anyone carrying a bulky canteen that you only see in old western and war movies!
The fact that many athletes bring with them some sort of backpack or waist pack, would only make sense that the next option would be a combination of pack and water system. The backpacks that contain a reservoir with a convenient flow tube for the easy stream of water is the best logical way to access fresh cool liquid without having to dig around for the bottle, and when you finally find it, the water’s warm and tastes horrible.
Hydration Systems Quench Your Thirst With Convenience and Comfort!
The features and benefits in a hydration pack system are plentiful, and you can find the right hydration product that can fit anyone’s activity level. Many of the bag manufacturers are listening to your athletic needs, and with athletes and outdoor enthusiasts providing the necessary feedback, hydration backpacks and waistpacks are being developed in many tailored models and unique styles.
Many of the bags are specially designed to contour the shape of your body, and they have extra padded straps for comfort, and additional sternum straps for the safety of your lower back as well.
The packs come in all sizes and functions, and depending on the level of your activity, you can easily find a pack system with the internal water bladder system that can carry from 30 to well over 100 ounces of water. The construction includes many details such as insulated hoses for prevention of freezing in the winter, and other uniquely designed components that allow your fresh water stay cool for hours during hot summer days!
Having a drinking system that can adapt to your sport or activity is important, and when you can enjoy every hour you spend outdoors, without having to worry where to find your next source of H2O is the reason these hydration pack systems were created in the first place. Runners can take advantage of the waist pack system, where you actually sip on your water through the extended valve tube, so while you’re running you don’t have to fumble for a water bottle, which can easily take your attention away from the path or road, and avoid any injury.
Whether you’re taking your activity to the backcountry, or you decide to be part of a city biking excursion, having the right hydration gear will allow you to enjoy every minute without having to worry about finding quality drinking water. Having a source of necessary fluids is the key to keeping your body fully hydrated, and when your body’s hydration level is at its peak, you will be pleased that you made the decision to obtain a quality drinking system.
