Hydrapak Review and Giveaway

If there's one thing that's been drilled into my head this summer its "Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate". Everyone has their favorite ways to keep the H20 flowing. If you see me in day to day life, odds are I have a water bottle with me. If I'm running, I've got a handheld with me. Most recently, I've started wearing the Hydrapak Avila while hiking.

I've owned every hydration belt under the sun,but I've always shied away from hydration packs thinking they'd be too heavy and awkward. Now I'm wishing I tried one sooner. The Avila holds 70 oz of fluid and is super comfortable to wear. I love that it has a pocket to toss my cell phone and snacks in.


We took it out recently, while on a hunt for dino tracks, and it kept my water nice and cool and my hands free. After I got used to the idea of it, I took it for a few runs, once adjusted I was pleasantly surprised that it didn't bounce around. I even eventually came to like the sound of the rhythmic sloshing of water.

The only downside I've found, is that Dash loves drinking out of it so much, I’m getting a backache from bending over to accommodate him. For the record, its small enough that he can wear it. Guess its time to get one for him.
