Model: Quick Grip Podium Chill
As I mentioned in my earlier post reviewing the Amphipod Run Lite 4 Hydration Belt, I’m not a big fan of hydration belts in general, and dislike the feeling of the additional weight around my waist. Another issue I’ve run into is trying to keep an 8-oz bottle of water that’s pushed up against your body cold when it’s well over 100-degrees outside. Reaching for a drink 2 hours into a run and taking a swig of hot water is certainly not on the list of my favorite things to do.
So to replace the hydration belt, I knew I wanted a handheld bottle that was insulated, but I wasn’t sure which one I wanted, or even what was available. After looking at the available options, I quickly settled on the Camelbak Quick Grip with the Podium Chill bottle.
