STAY HYDRATED WITH 5 OF OUR FAVOURITE WATER BOTTLES

With summer just around the corner, it’s a great time to get outdoors and enjoy the warmer weather with a hike or camping trip. But even a gentle circular walk or setting up camp is going to require some physical exertion; and with it only taking a 2% loss of your body weight in water for you to be affected by dehydration, it’s important to keep your water levels topped up. Once you reach a loss of 5%, your physical ability can be restricted by up to 30%, putting a real strain on your body and mind. Regular water breaks and snacks are going to keep you hydrated and healthy.

Here are five of our favourite water bottles and flasks.

Hydro Flask

A beautiful looking flask that performs as good as it looks. The outside of the bottle is coated in a bespoke powder for a sweat-free and easy-grip matt finish. Inside the flask a double wall vacuum and a unique honey-construct lid keep water cool for up to 24hrs.
