Water Bottle

The water bottle holder and hydration pack are two common ways of staying hydrated on your bicycle. The H2bike system, from Israeli company BlueDesert, combines them into one streamlined device for easier sipping. Read More

Why carry two pieces of gear into the backcountry when you can carry one? That's the question that Vargo answers with the new Titanium BOT. The vessel combines two backcountry essentials - cooking pot and water bottle - into a single, lightweight package. Read More

Kenmark Sports has a new way for runners, walkers and other fitness enthusiasts to stay hydrated. It takes the bottle out of your hand, off your waist and out of your backpack and puts it on your arm. It calls its (not so creatively named) Armband Water Bottle the "first multifunctional armband on the market." Read More

We're constantly being told to drink lots of fluids, but buying fresh bottled water is expensive and a waste of resources, and while reusable drink-flasks (or old plastic bottles) can be refilled, they take up space when not in use. The Bübi Bottle offers a simple-yet-elegant solution to the problem - it's scrunchable. Read More

We all know that using a stainless steel or polycarbonate water bottle is much more eco than using (and tossing) a disposable water bottle. It's kind of the trendy thing right now. But do you really know just how much garbage and energy that you're saving the Earth from? With the 999Bottle, it's easy to find out. Read More

The LapelEau is a rather fancy name for a very simple product. It's a small, low profile retention line for your hydration bladder hose. It keeps the bladder hose accessible but out of the way. Read More

The intriguingly named Anti Bottle just got updated. The new Element is purpose built large for the thirstiest customers and features a couple of updates from the original Anti Bottle models. It is the largest Anti Bottle yet, coming in 0.7 liter (24 oz) and one liter (34 oz) sizes, with a wide mouth "SuperCap" to deliver that extra fluid to your body more quickly. It also gets a stronger attachment clip designed to better hold on to your backpack during intense workouts. Read More

The JetFlow hydration widget is a little bit old school and a little bit new school. It pulls the dirty, moldy, bacteria-ridden hydration bladder out of your backpack and replaces it with a good old-fashioned water bottle you can toss in the recycling bin or dishwasher - but with much of the function of a hydration bladder intact.

First of all, let's get one thing clear - conventional hydration packs aren't a problem that needs solving. You want a drink, you suck on the mouthpiece, it's as simple as that. Then again, standard-definition video, dial-up internet connections and friction-operated bicycle shift levers were all considered "good enough" at one time, too. It's hard to say if GEIGERRIG's pressurized hydration pack system will eventually join the ranks of HDTV, cable internet and indexed shifting, but based on my experiences with one of the company's test rigs, it could at least gain some converts.

Bike locks ... they’re very necessary items, but are sometimes a hassle to carry when you’re riding. U-locks can be clipped into a frame-mounted bracket, but not everyone wants a big plastic bracket permanently installed on their prized two-wheeler. They can also be stuffed in a backpack, although that can be a challenge if space in said backpack is already at a premium. Alternatives include a lock that you wear like a belt, and a lock that straps onto the bicycle’s top tube. Now, there’s another option – a lock that has the form of a water bottle, so it can sit in your bottle cage. Read More
