Best Teton Sports Hydration Backpacks For Hiking
The importance of staying hydrated during intense physical exercise should never be undermined, which is why we highly recommend getting a hydration backpack.
Hydration packs come in the form of full-fledged backpacks (e.g.TETON Sports Oasis 1100 or TETON Sports Oasis 1200) suitable for overnight trips or slip packs for short cycling trips or such (e.g. TETON Sports TrailRunner 2.0).
These backpacks have provisions for bladders within the bag. A drinking straw protrudes put of the backpack to keep drinking water accessible for you at all times.You can drink water without having a stop or take off your hydration backpack. You can also choose the side or shoulder your drinking straw sits on.
Most backpacks come with side pockets meant to store water bottles. However, carrying something as heavy and dense as water on the side can cause imbalance. Ideally, water should be carried on one’s back to maintain equilibrium. Hence, hydration backpacks help you keep balanced while having accessible drinking water.
On the other hand, keeping your drinking water tucked away saves you from two issues which may seem small, but are definitely far from it. Firstly, you reduce the chances of your water bottle falling out during the trek. Secondly, it helps keep your hands free as you do not need to carry a bottle.
Accordingly, hydration backpacks are growing in popularity due to its functional benefits. Available in a wide range of shapes and sizes, there is a model of hydration backpacks to suit everyone.
