Whether you are an athlete or an outdoor enthusiast, a hydration pack is an essential piece of kit, and here at Simply Hike, we offer an extensive range, so whatever physical activity you enjoy, you can find a hydration pack to meet your needs.
When engaging in physical activity, you need approximately one litre of water per hour of activity to maintain proper levels of hydration. Now, if you plan on a long hike or a run of any distance, carrying large bottles of water is cumbersome and inconvenient and takes up an awful lot of room within your pack. Not to mention the inconvenience of having to stop, undo your pack, get your water, and then repack.
However, with a hydration pack, your water is stored in a bladder that lies inside the pack, against your back, and you access it via a drinking tube, meaning that there's no need to stop and unpack - simply sip from the tube while on the move. Additionally, having the water in a bladder takes up considerably less space than the same amount of water stored in plastic bottles. Studies show that those who use a hydration pack rather than bottles, consume more fluid with increased frequency, and therefore remain optimally hydrated and perform better, as adequate hydration is a key factor in maximising endurance and performance.
At Simply Hike, we offer hydration packs suited to any physical activity, ranging from lightweight packs with a one litre bladder and a six litre pack capacity, up to models with larger, three litre reservoirs with pack storage capacities of up to 30 litres.
Help yourself reach your maximum potential and stay healthy with the use of a hydration pack. Maximise your performance, increase your endurance, and achieve your goals by ensuring your consume at least one litre of water per hour of activity. Save space in your pack by ditching those pesky plastic bottles, and save time, as you don't need to stop to access your water.
