BIKE HYDRATION BELTS
Bike Hydration can come in many shapes and sizes. One of the less common ways of transporting water is with bike hydration belts. So, what exactly is a hydration belt? We like to define it as anything that can go around your waist and holds water. Staying hydrated out on the trail is very important and a hydration belt is an easy and simple way to bring that quality H2O with you.
Reservoir fanny packs are the most common type of hydration belt. These small packs come in a variety of setups. Some hold one or two water bottles, while many contain a bladder and hose that can be filled with water. Although there is somewhat of a stigma around wearing a fanny pack no matter the type, a hydration belt has many benefits.
First, no one likes to have a sweaty back. This is a common occurrence when you are wearing a backpack while riding. Backpacks offer plenty of room for water and other items, but end up being quite bothersome during the ride. A Hydration belt provides room for water and trail side essentials suck as tubes, tools, and snacks, without getting your back all sweaty and shoulders sore. They also rest effortlessly on your hips so there is basically no strain on your body at all. Feel the freedom of a loose shirt while knowing you have all the items and water needed to support your ride.
Other accessories for hydration belts also exist including small water bottles with belt loop holes for easy attachment and replacement parts such as buckles and reservoir parts.
