Nuun Hydration Tablets

rated 5 of 5 stars Nuun Active has become my all-season, all activity, go-to electrolyte drink. I picked up my first tube of Nuun this summer after being drawn to the aestethically pleasing packaging and the myriad of flavors to choose from. I picked up strawberry lemonade and fruit punch and used them that same day. A little backstory: I have been searching for an electrolyte replacer for awhile as I can't stomach any of the pre-made sugar ladened drinks on the market (I get terrible acid reflux from them and it… Full review

Hammer Nutrition Recoverite Drink Mix

rated 5 of 5 stars This drink makes my recovery after a long run or even a workout so much smoother. What really made this so appealing to me is that the taste was so amazing. When I mix the servings with water it tastes like in drinking strawberry milk. This is a very effective and tasty recovery drink. I had heard about this drink from a friend of mine who is a much more dedicated runner than myself. He recommended this to me because I had just gotten done with my first half marathon. When I continued training I… Full review

Nestle NIDO Dry Whole Milk

rated 5 of 5 stars Milk for the backcountry that tastes a lot like milk. Whole milk with milkfat retained. Great for breakfast cereals, in coffee, in meals and can even be drunk by itself. Nothing like the powdered non-fat milk commonly sold here in the US, Nestle's NIDO Dry Whole Milk is worth the effort to track down. The ingredients are simple; whole milk and a tiny bit (0.2%) of soy lecithin as an emulsifier. Being whole milk may contribute to the surprisingly good flavor, but it definitely adds some light to… Full review

Maker's Mark

rated 5 of 5 stars Best backpacking buddy I've ever had. Review edited to accommodate a lack of humor It is important to have a reward at the end of the day Something to underscore the price you have paid An ally in the most lonely of places A tool that remembers the most important of faces It helps you remember the worst, the best Other times it helps you forget the rest Able to keep me mellow at anytime The morning will encounter me Feeling just fine Full review

Nuun U Hydration Tablets

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These electrolyte tablets are a great alternative to messy powders to bring along when hiking. They dissolve easily and even add a little fizz to your water. The flavors are all natural and delicious. I purchased three tubes of these Nuun all-natural tablets on Amazon after reading about them on a blog. Previously I had been using electrolyte powders which inevitably you always end up opening the wrong way or spilling half of it on the ground.  Tablets are the perfect, non-messy solution!   I… Full review

Clif The Climber Cabernet Sauvignon

rated 3 of 5 stars If you bring wine hiking this is a very good way to do it. “Jeff likes climbing and stuff, let’s get him this.” I can’t confirm it but I am confident that this conversation happened shortly before the family bought me a bag of Clif Climber Cabernet as a gift. I admit the concept is nifty, a bag of wine is much easier to carry than a bottle and weighs a ton less. Like Franzia without the box.   Cool packaging anyway Despite the fact that risky sports like climbing and alcohol are generally… Full review

Skratch Labs Exercise Hydration Mix

rated 5 of 5 stars Skratch has good product, it has good taste, and doesn't cause GI issues. I for one love the pineapple, enjoy the raspberry but I'm not as big of a fan of it. After two triathlon seasons using other sports drinks and having poor results, including GI issues, cramping and other issues. I found skratch labs, and I've had really good results. With no GI distress or cramping. I've also found that I can drink it and not get sick of it on the bike and run. I am also impressed with the company. Full review

Skratch Labs Exercise Hydration Mix

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Finally an exercise drink with real ingredients and no bellyache Oh great, another sports drink! A powdered mix of something you can’t pronounce that promises to make you run faster, the hills flatter and drive the women crazy. Heard it all before? Me too, and truly I am kinda tired of it.  “So wait a minute Jeff, why the heck are you reviewing a sports drink?” Good question. In my opinion the world of sports drinks has, for too long, been dominated by huge companies that care more about… Full review

GU Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Drink

rated 3 of 5 stars Not a noticeable improvement in my performance, but it tastes good so I drink more water. Why Roctane? Why not drink Gatorade or something similar? Good question. For a long time I did and I ended up diluting it a lot since the super sweetness was a turn off during exertion. Frankly Gu Roctane isn’t the first company to mix amino acids with their energy mix.  I tried Endurox mixes, which incorporate amino acids into their drink powders and liked it but it never seemed to mix completely in… Full review
