Thirst No More: These Hip Packs Are Exactly What You Didn’t Know You Needed

Whether you run, bike, walk or hike, lumbar hydration packs are the easiest way to keep the breeze at your back.


Picture this: it’s warm out, and you’re gearing up for a day on the trails. You throw on a pair of lightweight running shoes, shorts, a tee and hat, take a step outside and feel the sheer force of the sun weighing down on you. You immediately re-think your decision to leave water behind. Whether the heat is just too much or you’re heading out for a longer distance than ever before, a lumbar pack that holds water is just the gadget you need to have a successful day. Today, Mountainsmith launched two new lumbar packs: the Buzz and Dart. Each is simple and easy to use, plus will keep you hydrated.

Grab the Dart ($40) when you’re headed out for a long run or day hike — the single water bottle pack also fits your keys and phone. The Buzz ($50) holds up to two water bottles with a snap punch in between, so you can stuff an extra tube, CO2 canister and more inside. Mountainsmith gear is designed to be tough, so you don’t have to think twice when you strap one of these around your waist.
