GEIGERRIG BIKE RIG

 Hydration Packs made a splash last year with the introduction of their air pressure-powered water pumping hydration pack. Now they have a Gucci underseat bag for bikes with the same tech. The reservoir is in a tool bag that mounts under your seat. The hose runs along your top tube, and the mouthpiece mounts to your handlebars, for the best chance at getting the high-powered stream of water or electrolyte drink into your mouth. Holds 30oz of water and tools or food; $120; geigerrig.com.

CAMELBAK ARC 4 RUN BELT
Water is heavy—so this hydration belt spreads the load. Four holsters each hold an eight ounce Podium Arc Bottle, a mini Camelbak Podium bottle with the same sweet high-flow mouthpiece we love in the standard size Podium bottle. Mini Podiums are shaped to fit your grip, and they slide easily into the belt bottle cages so you can hydrate on the move.

The belt holds a total of 32 ounces of water or your beverage of choice, and about 20 cubic inches of whatever else you need to bring along, like bars, keys and a cell phone. The best part: total belt weight is just 2.5 ounces—not including bottles. Will be available starting January 2013 in three sizes with Velcro and elastic webbing closure; $60; camelbak.com.

Salomon S-Lab Hydro Sense

SALOMON SENSE HYDRO S-LAB SET
Putting hydration literally in the palm of your hand, Salomon's Sense Hydro S-Lab Set uses soft, vented fabrics to lock any Salomon soft flask from 150 to 1000ml into your otherwise hot, sweaty palm. Because the flask is collapsible, water won't bounce or slosh. With the easy on-off harness, you won't drop it in the middle of your run. $40; salomon.com/us.
