Don’t lose your bottle

 

Top tip:  Regarding bottles and bottle holders,

The ever useful Scott Jurek Vest

The ever useful Scott Jurek Vest

If you’re like me – you rarely use bladders anymore, but even if that’s ALL you use, keep in mind – those same bottles that ensure that none of your drink escapes ALSO KEEP LIQUID OUT!  Don’t just leave them at home.

On journeys and events where there’s a strong chance of rain, or long term sweating (looks at ground in shame), you can afford to still carry your bottles , but here’s the thing……..don’t fill ’em with drink, fill em with spare hat/gloves, dry long sleeved top, phone, cash, nibbles, spare batteries, fire lighting kit – whatever ought to be kept dry.

Easy to reach, entirely waterproof and simpler than packing a great big dry bag for one or two bits.  Simple really, but easy to overlook.

The good news these days is that with packs like the Scott TP10, Ultimate Direction Scott Jurek Vest and inov-8 Race Ultra Vest (to name but three), you get two bottles as standard, so you can still carry a drink while using this neat trick.

Hope it doesn’t rain too much, but if it does – hope this helps.
