Quenching a need

Hydration packs you strap to your back are OK for backpacking, long-distance running or biking across vast expanses. However, activities that are a tad less ambitious still require water breaks to keep all systems operating to factory specs.

For those times, Camelbak, a leader in hydration packs, has created a better bottle that doesn't squirt or allow water to slop down the front of your shirt.

The dishwasher-safe bottle holds .75 of a liter, has a flip-up, bite-and-sip spout and has a useful loop that not only allows you to clip the bottle, but also prevents it from rolling around. And it's east to hold.

It comes in nine colors. Cost: $12. www.camelbak.com.
