Push the pace and stay replenished—hydration packs are a fitness solution for many athletes and outdoor enthusiasts.
Athletes pushing the pace in the great outdoors should consume 1 liter of water per hour of strenuous physical activity, including water contained in beverages and food. High levels of physical activity and perspiration in hot temperatures demands higher water intake to combat dehydration.
Hydration packs store water within an internal bladder mounted on an individual's back. Hydration packs offer hands-free fluid consumption—consume fluids as you move through a convenient drinking tube. Because water intake is easier with a hydration pack, athletes tend to drink more frequently.
Backpackers, day-hikers, distance cyclists and trail-runners, among other athletes, benefit from use of a hydration pack.
