Best Hydration Packs for Runners

By avatarEuniCe

Hi superble friends! Let’s talk about… hydration packs!

I started running a couple of years ago. I realized that even the basic thing like drinking water is a huge deal in this type of sport. That's why I learned to trust and be sensitive to my body. Dehydration is a real threat to our physical performance. Everyone knows that. So let me share with you the things that I learned about healthy hydration.

To be honest, you don't really need to drink a lot while you are running. This is one of the common mistakes runners make. Doing this just causes them to feel bloated and even gaggy while running. So here are my quick tips and my recommended hydration packs for runners.

WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME TO DRINK WATER?

There is no single answer to this question. It really depends on your body. Basically, for a 30-minute run, you should have drunk at least 8oz of water. You may also sip a little every mil. Or if you feel really thirsty, you can sip every after a few minutes. Listen to your body.

In my case, I don't really enjoy the taste of flavored water. I tried Salt Stick tablets to help me balance out all the sweat I'm losing. I used to be a heavy -sweater, by the way.

WHAT KINDS OF DRINK SHOULD I BRING WITH ME?

Again, there is no single answer to this question. It depends on your preference. However, a sports drink is a no-no for me when it comes to running. If you are a heavy sweater like me, or you are going for a really long run, or you are experiencing some muscle cramps while running or after running, I suggest that you add some electrolytes to your drinking water. This may help you a lot.

HOW SHOULD I CARRY MY WATER WHILE RUNNING?

Hydration packs are perfect if you are going to ask me. They are easy to use hands-free. I can sip anytime I want or grab my things whenever I need them.

Top 4 Hydration Packs

Ultimate Direction Adventure Vesta

This hydration pack has a lot of pockets.

If you want to be able to take off your gear or jacket as the weather changes, this is for you.

Camelbak Marathoner Hydration Vest

This hydration pack features pockets that are placed in front. This makes it easy to grab your things.

Salomon Advanced Skin 5 Set

I have tried one of this brand’s packs already and I can really say that they stayed put! I used it during my training. If you are not that tall, you will find this hydration pack very comfortable to wear (especially on your torso).

Nathan VaporHowe

This hydration pack vest is available in XXS. If you really want a good and tight fit, this size is a great option. It also features front pockets and 2 straps for a perfect fit.

Just for fun: I don't own one of these but I have a friend that wore it one time while we were on the run. I couldn't stop laughing! Sometimes, you just need a little fun, so you might want to check out this beer hat that you can wear while on the run (LOL).

Kidding aside, I hope that you find what you are looking for. Have fun running!

Be the best version of yourself!
