A:

You know you need to stay hydrated when exercising. In warm weather, most experts suggest fluid intake of eight ounces of water or sport drink every 20 minutes. If you don’t keep up with fluid intake, your performance will drop. Worst case, you go into severe dehydration and even risk your life.

Hydration packs allow you to carry several liters of fluid comfortably and provide easy access. These are my favorites for mountain biking, marathoning, and hiking.
