We have been adding more trail running accessories to our shop that enhance the trail running experience. Ultimately, we are searching for products that make life easier and running more fun. Here is why we added the Hydrapak SkyFlask Speed 350 and 500 ML.
I have always preferred to run with as minimal gear as possible and for those middle distance runs that don't need a lot of water but need something I have always struggled with wanting to bring a handheld. I hated the feeling that I was lugging around a bottle and they felt bigger than they needed to be.
The Hydrapak Speed is so minimal I forget its in my hand as soon as I start running. The adjustable strap stays snug so you can forget about gripping it and keep your fingers loose.
I have had too many hydration systems that have leaky lids and halfway through the run its looking like more water has made into my shorts than my body. The lid locks tight and the 350ML has the additional feature of a speed fill cap which flips open and snaps closed for a quick refill.
With any flask it has the bonus of compressing down so you don't have to hold towards the end of a run if you have a pocket.
TO THE POINT PROS:
- This minimal bottle keeps it simple while offering you hydration on the run.
- Comfortable in hand and fits snug.
- Tightly sealed lid with no leaks dripping down your shorts. We love the 350ml speed fill cap.
GIVIN’ IT TO YOU STRAIGHT CONS:
- The adjustment band material isn't our absolute favorite. A softer band in the future would be a plus.
DO YOU NEED THIS?
There are a lot of handhelds out there and we chose to have the Hydrapak Speed in our shop because of its minimal yet effective design. It has what you need to stay hydrated with ease at a solid price point.
You can add this to your runs without noticing its presence so you can keep feeling light and minimal.
