Guide Review - Swiggies Hands-Free Hydration Water Bottles

Each Swiggies holds 5.5 ounces of water or your favorite sports drink. They strap to the wrists and have a pull top. Swiggies on each wrist will supply you with eleven ounces of fluid during your skate session to help prevent dehydration. The half pound that each Swiggies weighs when full will allow you to skate without any extra stress on your joints.

Proper hydration is important to inline skaters and other athletes. The American College of Sports Medicine suggests drinking 8 to 10 ounces of water before, 8 ounces during and as much as 16 ounces after a workout. A set of Swiggies will more than meet the suggested fluid intake during your workout. Swiggies were originally designed for runners, but are a great hydration tool for inline skaters, bikers, walkers and aerobics enthusiasts, too.
