Hammer Nutrition Endurolytes Fizz Tube

rated 4 of 5 stars Hammer Fizz is my go-to ingredient in my bottles. Replenishes electrolytes and helps prevent cramps. I give it 4 stars. If the taste was completely non-bitter, it would be 5 stars. Highly recommended. I am a road cyclist, and Hammer Fizz has become the primary ingredient in my water bottles. For many years I have used maltodextrin (et al)-based drink mix. No matter how I prepared them, even combining several mixes, I found them either too light or too syrupy.  For long rides here in the Northeast… Full review

Hammer Nutrition Perpetuem

rated 5 of 5 stars This has been my secret to sustained energy and endurance on very long hikes and bike rides. It has everything you need to not "hit the wall" in your last mile! I swear by it! I have tried almost every sports drink on the market and this still tops out at #1 for me. Single serving packages seen here. This is marketed as a fuel source for extreme athletes and a product that will utilize fat storage for energy sparing the muscles of increased rate of atrophy. I have used this and other Hammer products… Full review

Packit Gourmet Mango-Kale Jump-Start Smoothie

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Despite ALL of the rest of their products being THE BEST, this one's a swing and a miss. I FINALLY FOUND IT!!! A Packit Gourmet product that I don't love... Just gotta say that I really miss the "Eat a Peach Fruit Smoothie". The berry and tropical are BOTH GREAT, but that peach smoothie was my favorite. One of these fruit smoothies, a Clif bar (or equivalent), and a cup of coffee in the morning and I'm ready for the trail.   And now, as the late, great Paul Harvey would say, the rest of the story...

Black Box Cabernet Sauvignon 500ml

rated 5 of 5 stars A delicate complex vintage with just a hint of vinegar and preservatives. Plus, it packs great. Black Box has a delectable assortment of 500 ml box wines. You can usually find them at the Walgreens. I have never had one leak in my pack. The taste is always the same, which is good. Would hate to hike in and find out my wine has gone bad. Haven't had one freeze on me yet, either, down to about 20 degrees. Here is a picture of a hotel party just off trail somewhere: It. Is. On! Don't have any pictures… Full review

Vitalyte Electrolyte Replacement Drink Mix

rated 5 of 5 stars Grape has become the house favorite over the years. Vitalyte is nether an energy drink or a source of calories, it is an electrolyte replacement and best "utliliized" to prevent and recover from dehydration. We have been drinking Vitalyte for over twenty (20) years (we still call it Gookinaid!) there is always a two litre container in our fridge and a second container in the summer. I sold it in my bicycle shoppe for twenty years. We have tried all the flavors, Orange, Fruit Punch, Lemon and *No… Full review

Ambronite

rated 4 of 5 stars IN PROGRESS - NOT FINAL Ambronite; the soylent based super-meal that can run a person to the next meal or through that next workout and is drunken from a bottle. The Drink is composed of all organic and whole foods resourced and developed into Ambronite in Finland. The mix is considered all vegan and nutritious, and on the companies website it claims to be a meal substitute and supplement that can be made by the busiest silicon valley for weeks at a time, to the occasional trail snack for the weekend… Full review

Alacer Emergen-C

rated 5 of 5 stars Who could have guessed that this well known Vitamin C source and cold remedy would make a super electrolyte and restorative drink for hikers? I've taken this on and off for decades as a pick-me-up to ward off getting sick when run down. It is sold as an immune system builder. After running out of our standard electrolyte mix for bicycling that we had been using up for hiking, I tried this by chance. And I quickly found that it worked even better for me than just electrolytes for energy recovery… Full review

Zipfizz

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The stuff works! Sustained energy quickly from healthy ingredients. Easy to carry and mix. Tastes great, in choice of flavors, in multiflavor packs, that seem to be expanding. I gave this 5-star product 4.5 stars, because I would prefer to have less throw away plastic in the packaging. Also I want potential users to help ensure that they use any stimulant wisely. If too much taken or taken too late, spontaneous circle walking and/or a sleepless night(s) might occur. What a single dose looks like. … Full review

Skratch Labs Exercise Hydration Mix

rated 5 of 5 stars An excellent hydration mix that tastes great, supplies balanced electrolytes, and won't slow you down. Skratch Labs hydration mix started life in the professional cycling peloton. Alan Lim was the nutritionist for several pro cycling teams including BMC, Garmin, and Radio Shack, and had received many complaints about the electrolyte drinks that riders had to use. They complained about rotten taste, too much sugar, and the tendency for it to sit in the "bottom of your gut." So he developed this drink… Full review
