Hydration is a key component for effective, healthy running. Though there are some guidelines for staying properly hydrated, each runner tends to differ a little finding and finetuning the method and ratio of water or fuel to suit his or her needs. Portable water has become an essential part of most runner's lives but often, the choices for this are limited. Training runs don't often have aid stations and it is not always easy to refill the smaller size bottles that are more prevalent and hydration vests and fuel belts can be cumbersome and overkill for those in between distances. Enter the CamelBak Quick Grip Chill Handheld bottle. Not only does it offer more capacity at 21 ounces but its Podium Chill insulation also keeps water cold. While some water bottles have odd shapes to better mold with the runners' hands, Camelbak offers a round bottle. Its shape makes replacement simple and cleaning a breeze but creates an issue for some with the comfort of carrying. Despite CamelBak's adjustable straps that wrap around the hand for a customized fit, the heft of the filled bottle created some negative feedback. Its attached zippered pouch has tried to adapt to meet the needs of runners by increasing in size from the older model to the new one, and the increased reflective detailing garnered positive reviews.
