Now that it is officially summer and hydration is extra important, I thought it would be a great time to review my favorite hydration accessory!
I bought the Amphipod Hydraform Handheld Pocket right before Boston since I decided I wanted to carry water in that race and I kept hearing great things about it. I took it on my last long run before the race and hoped that it wouldn’t drive me crazy during the race. I figured worst case, I would toss it, but luckily that didn’t happen.
This water bottle holds 20 ounces of water, but compared to bigger handheld bottles I have used in the past, this one definitely feels the best. It never gets too heavy and the shape of it fits your hand really well.
This model has a pocket that I can fit 2 GUs in or a big pack of GU Chomps.
The top has a big opening which makes it really easy to refill during a race if you want/need to. I refilled it twice during Boston and was able to while I was running because the mouth is so big.
I have used this water bottle countless times since Boston, including the Big Sur Marathon and still love it. It has definitely passed my test and will be getting tons more use this summer.
Do you carry water when you run?
I always carry it on long runs and have been carrying it on longer runs after work too since it’s been warm!
Are you a handheld or fuel belt runner?
I started off using a fuel belt, but prefer not to have the weight around me if I can help it.
***I bought this with my own money and was not compensated in any way for this review… they don’t even know I posted it! This review is based on my own opinions and experiences and I just love to share my favorite products with you guys!
