Tested: CamelBak Forge Vacuum-Insulated Travel Mug

Tested: BlenderBottle SportMixer

Know what bothers me? It’s when a company redesigns an already great product and in doing so, eliminates all the reasons I liked it in the first place. Lucky me – BlenderBottle did no such thing! The BlenderBottle SportMixer is a totally new style that actually improves […]

Tested: CamelBak Podium ChillJacket Bottle

While I was trying out a Camelbak Podium bottle, I couldn’t resist also trying a CamelBak ChillJacket Podium bottle, which is the insulated version. The ChillJacket bottle has all the features of the regular Podium bottle, but the insulation is supposed to keep drinks hot or cold for hours…

NeverReach: The $99 Water Bottle

What you are looking at is called the NeverReach, which is more than a giant water bottle – it’s actually a “frame mounted hydration system.” It consists of a large water tank that fits behind your saddle, with a tube that runs from the bottle to your handlebars, ending with a bite valve. That means you can carry a lot of water and drink it easily, not having to fumble with normal water bottles.
