You stick it in your pants..Review and Giveaway Part 2. The big reveal.

I know you were all just dying to know what kind of hydration bottle you can stick in your pants, shorts, skirt, hydration belt, etc.  I am wearing it here on the front of my hydration belt.  I ran with it there Monday for ten miles with zero irritation.  This is part of my new long run hydration plan.
If I could do this picture over, I would be giving a thumbs up. 
There were a couple of people that guessed it right.  Simple Hydration! Below is a picture of it hooked into the back of my running skirt.  I have run up to 8 miles with the hooker Simple Hydration bottle hooked into the back of my skirt.
I'm not sure why it looks like I have swass, must be from my hydration belt that I just took off.
So if you are looking for something you don't have to hold in your hand when you run because you like to be hands free like me (although it isn't bad to hold for short distances).
Where should I put this this thing?
Get a Simple Hydration water bottle and you can stick it in your pants (or whatever).
I'll just hook it here!

and run hands free like me.

okay I may or may not be fake running here.
Here is a close up so you can see how well it fits into and hooks on my hydration belt.
I hate ironing obviously and the rectangle on my chest is my ipod in my Handful bra pocket.
Stats from the website

Simple Hydration Water Bottle – 13 oz.

Our innovative hook-shaped bottle allows runners or active individuals to simply hydrate on the go. The bottle slides into a waistband, race belt or pocket easily.
  • Contoured shape for a great fit
  • Rests comfortably in the hand when drinking
  • LDPE
  • BPA-Free
  • 53 mm cap for easy filling and cleaning
  • Top rack dishwasher safe
  • Made in the USA

The bottle also to my surprise can stand up by itself on the counter.  I was thinking it wouldn't and thought that a drawback.  I was wrong.

I love that the inventor of these, Brian Hock, writes on his website about how they were tested on his kids running around the living room in them.  You can read about that HERE.  Doing the mystery post was his idea and I love it!

    1. I completely agree here - it's a must try. I feel like it may need an infomercial ;) lol

  2. That is the strangest water bottle ever. I feel like it still might drive me insane (or pull down my shorts!), but it's worth a shot!

  3. Looks cool- I currently use a $1 water bottle that has a handle which makes it easy to wrap my hand around. I would love to try Simple Hydration's bottle- I wonder if it would stay in my skirt pocket?

    1. I just edited my post but, if you go like their FB page, you have a 1 in 5 chance on winning one there if you tell them "Joan sent you"


      Not sure if it would fit in a skirt pocket or not.. depends on the pocket I guess!

  4. Doesn't the water get butt sweat on it and get all hot? Maybe my butt sweats more than others?

    1. I wouldn't be surprised it your butt seats more than others but I do promise you the butt sweat stays on the bottle and does not get in the water. It does tend to warm up faster than with other bottles though which is why I recommend putting ice in it.

  5. Weird! Does it hurt your back? I have a "bony" tailbone and think it would hurt me. Does it really stay in place?

    1. I also have a bony tailbone and it didn't hurt me after an 8 mile run with it in.

  6. I've never heard of it. I'm still skeptical that it would not rub. I'll have to try and find one.

  7. What a neat idea. Not sure if it would be my best bet, but I would love to win one to give it a go!

  8. I was right! Hurray!

    I think this looks very neat and would love to try it. And I think that the size is just right, too.

    Thanks for the extra entries, Christy, and the heads up on SH's own giveaway too. Wonderful.

  9. I am willing to try anything. I don't have a hydration belt yet, so this might do the trick!! Also, do you have the discount code to purchase this??

    ReplyDelete
  10. I did share your post on my FB page and I also tweeted.

    Have a great Wednesday, Christy!

  11. Very cool! I'd love to give it a whirl : )

  12. This is Brian, the founder of Simple hydration. I will send the discount code to anyone doing the 2 items I mentioned above. By doing that I can keep track of who wants to be in the running for a free bottle(s) on our Facebook page. If you just want to buy the bottle at a discount and not do the FB stuff then send me an email brian[at]simplehydration.com and say "Joan sent me" in the comment line. Thanks everyone. You rock!

  13. wow! this is super interesting. i was honestly totally stumped by your post the other day ;) it all makes sense now :)

  14. Right now I'm using the same hydration belt that you're wearing in the picture. I really love it but sometimes carry a handheld as well to have more water. I think if the Simply Hydration bottle works as well as you say, it would be very beneficial.

  15. I think this is a rad product idea! I would LOVE to test it out. Also, my son thinks he needs a hydration bottle (age 7) and no fuel belts would fit him , so this would be fun to try with him as well. I will check them out!!

  16. I have to say, in addition to some other comments...that butt sweat (my own anyway) would not bother me. ha!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Tweeted, shared, liked and followed :) I've been super curious about these for those runs where the thought of strapping on my belt has made me want to skip the run :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I like the idea of a slim bottle that tucks in your pants. I love my fuel belt but sometimes I just want a little water to take with and not wear the belt but I don't like to carry anything in my hand either. This seems to fit the bill so I'm very interested to try it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I like it! I don't run with water because I don't like to have anything in my hands, and I haven't tried a hydration belt yet. This would be fun to try:)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ahh!!! I have that water bottle (and am "friends" with Brian on Daily Mile!) I LOVE the bottle! Enjoy it!

  21. What an ingenious bottle. I definitely could use that when I run my marathon :) I love the shape :)

  27. This is so cool! I totally shared on FB and "liked" them. I love this idea! Love, love love!

  28. Jury is still out for me on this one, but I'm intrigued!

  29. I hate having to lug around my handheld bottle, so this would be great to stay hydrated on long runs!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love that this just "hooks" on to whatever belt you're used to running with. I'm training for my first full marathon (marine corp!) and will need all the hydration possible while training in DCs awfully humid summers! The small bottles on my current hydration belt are never enough!
