New Gear: Simple Hydration Bottle. Care to Win One?

Wednesday, 20 February 2013  |  Gear + Gadgets

Every now and then, you chance upon a product that is so innovative yet so simple that you mutter to yourself: Why didn’t I think of that?

That’s what I thought when I received a sample of Simply Hydration bottle from ultra marathoner Tin Ferrera.

– 13 oz. Simple Hydration Bottle –

The brainchild of seasoned Ohio based triathlete and marathoner, Brian Hock, Simple Hydration, is an innovative product revolutionizing the way runners, cyclists, triathletes, crossfitters, gym buff or anyone on the go hydrate.  Hock got sick of handhelds and bulky belts during his tri-training and instead of complaining or suffering, he invented this bottle.

The Simple Hydration bottle is a 13 ounce bottle with a unique contoured shape for a great fit.  It is slender in one place, wider in the other, and has a lip on one side to hook on a belt or waist band.  It is easy to grip with one hand, insert in your shirt by your nape, around the waistband of your running shorts or race belt  for a comfortable, bounce-free run.  It just hooks anywhere! It is BPA free, made of LDPE and manufactured in the USA.

– Wear it at your nape! Ultramarathon and distributor Tin Ferrara used this at Bataan Death March Ultramarathon –

It’s so simple, convenient, and light; I loved it.  I preferred to grip it with one hand while on the run rather than clipping it onto my shorts or inserting it in the back of my shirt as I found this to be very uncomfortable.  The spout is a slightly difficult to pull with your teeth, but it does ensure that it doesn’t spill nor open while on the run. While 13 ounces may not be enough for a run above 10k, I found this to be the perfect size because any bigger would be too heavy to lug around.  The solution would be to ensure that you can refill at some point for longer training runs.

I WANT TO RUN WITH SIMPLE HYDRATION, THE BOTTLE THAT HOOKS ANYWHERE. I will use my SIMPLE HYDRATION BOTTLE for my training for the upcoming Milo Marathon since I’m planning to run the 42k there. I like it because I’m a minimalist. I run on Vibram Five Fingers, huaraches or even barefoot. For a hydration bottle, it doesn’t get more minimalist than this.
