Running Bottles & Hydration


Do you want to know more about hydration packs for running?

Hydration packs are an essential accessory for all those who run regularly and run long distances. These packs have a liquid storage system for water or other liquids such as isotonic drinks inside, and a thin tube which allows the liquid to be ingested with the need to stop running.

In this type of sport, it is extremely important that the athlete is always well hydrated in order to keep energy levels up and to carry out the physical activity without problems. For that reason, hydration packs are such an important accessory, they allow runners to cover longer distances thanks to their easy hydration system.

It is important to bear in mind the following factors when choosing a hydration pack for running:

- Storage capacity. The pack must have enough litre capacity but should not be too much since the greater the capacity, the heavier it will be, which is not recommended. To avoid injuring your back by carrying too much weight and making your workout unpleasant, you should carry the appropriate capacity, nothing more and nothing less. Three litres is the ideal capacity. - Fabric and material. Wearing a backpack while running can be uncomfortable due to the heat it produces in your back. Which is why we must take into account the type of material or fabric used to make the hydration packs. They must be breathable, fast drying and must control heat effectively. This will ensure the race will not be uncomfortable and your back will always stay dry.

Salomon Active Skin 8 Set Hydration Vest Black
High quality pack for longer runs
Bought this 8L pack for my first Ultra. Fits all the essential listed gear with a little room left for some extra bits and pieces. Great free bottles and it’s a very comfortable fit with four hours on the trails being our longest run in them to date.

Salomon Soft Reservoir 1.5L Blue
Does exactly what it’s supposed to do
This is a great bladder, easy to use and fill. Hose is nice and long. Just be carful with the sliding hanger it can be a little fiddly to get on and off until you get use to it. A little hint when you have the bladder filled with water suck any excess air out of it to stop the water sloshing around inside. That will stop it bouncing around when it’s on your back.

Salomon ADV Skin 5 Set Hydration Vest Black Grey
Absolutely brilliant
I bought this as a gift for my husband with the Salomon bladder to go with it. It is brilliant, so comfortable, holds 2.5l of water. It’s used for long distance running, it doesn’t rub, nor does it come loose or bounce around on your back, it has loads of adjustment straps so to suit different body types and so once you are in you are good to go. It has loads of space and pockets for all your gear. I have used other Salomon hydration vests this is by far the best. It is true to size and fits both men and women. A hit with regards to soft water bottles and bladders; suck any excess air out of the bottle or bladder when filled with water to ensure as little bounce as possible when you run.
