Water bottles or water bags?

Water bottles and water pouches are essential accessories for any serious runner. They allow you to carry enough water to stay hydrated throughout your effort, without having to stop to look for a water source. On top of that, they are light, practical and offer great freedom of movement.

Water bottles are the easiest to use and the most common. They are often made of plastic or aluminium and have a capacity of about one litre. They are fitted with a screw cap and a straw to make it easier to hydrate on the move. Water bottles can be carried by hand or attached to a belt or trail backpack.

Water pouches, also known as "hydration bags", are a little more complicated to use, but offer greater storage capacity. They consist of a soft plastic bag containing water, which is connected to a tube and a hydration valve. The tube can be easily accessed at any time, allowing you to drink water without having to stop. Water bags are often integrated into a backpack specially designed for trail running.

The advantages of water bags are numerous. They make it easier and quicker to drink without having to stop and remove your rucksack. They are also more comfortable to carry, as they distribute the weight of the water over the entire back. This makes water pouches ideal for long distances, where it is important to have a sufficient supply of water to stay hydrated for several hours.

However, water bags also have some disadvantages. They can be more difficult to fill and clean than water bottles, and can tend to warp and bend during use. In addition, if not properly maintained, they can become dirty and develop bacteria, which can lead to health problems.

In conclusion, water bottles and water pouches are essential trail accessories. Water bottles are simple and practical, while water pouches offer greater storage capacity and easier, faster hydration. Whichever you choose, make sure you maintain your equipment properly to avoid health problems.
