You know that water is vital to life. The adult human body is composed of 50 to 65% water, that is why you need to constantly replace the lost fluids from sweating, breathing, peeing, and pooping. You can’t stress how important it is. You just can’t survive without it.

Now, can you imagine that everything is going smooth while on your outdoor activity, then suddenly thought you forgot to bring water with you? I mean how could someone forget to bring water outdoors? You’ll just scratch your head from frustration. Good thing you have friends who offered you their drinks. But what if you went solo and there’s no one to turn to or there aren’t stores around to buy bottles of water? What if the place you went has no source or easy access to potable water? Unless you know how to get water from the woods, then you can survive the trip, but what if you don’t? That, my friend, would be a huge, dehydrating disaster. These are just a few of the worse scenarios that you can encounter without water. Definitely, you won’t forget to bring one on your trip, right?

It is a must for you to always stay hydrated during your hiking, climbing or backpacking trip. You sweat and breathe a lot. That is your body’s way of keeping you up on your feet, and it uses water, while you exert your effort to keep focus on your activity. Remember to put loads of fluids and bottles of water in your hydration packs for convenience. Here are some of the best hydration packs to have on your upcoming adventures.
