Just admit it: you’re dehydrated. It’s not your fault, blame the heat, blame the humidity, blame the holdover effects of this past weekend. In all seriousness, if you’re a runner, hiker, mountain biker or otherwise active person dehydration is a matter to be taken seriously and at the very least, given a little extra consideration. Dehydration is a performance inhibitor and is the primary cause of feelings of fatigue during activity. What’s more, thirst isn’t the best indicator of when to drink. In order to maintain optimum hydration levels, you’ll want to make sure water is always close at hand and a good way of doing that is by strapping a liter or two to your back.
Today only, Amazon is holding a sale on all things CamelBak. You can save up to 45% on everything from a new, fully-kitted hiking pack to spare parts for the system you already have. And if you already own a sport-oriented pack it probably has a built-in hydration sleeve that’s capable of supporting a 100-ounce reservoir. And just so you’re aware, we’re celebrating all things beer this week at Gear Patrol, and CamelBak products are capable of holding any liquid, not just water hint hint.
