How I solved My Need for Hydration on Runs

Disclaimer: I received a Hydraquiver Vest Pack to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews!


“I started Orange Mud with the sole goal of changing the way runners look at hydration” – Josh, the founder of Orange Mud. 

Josh, you were successful! Before trying this hydraquiver vest, I was annoyed with ‘hydration’.  I had a small water bottle attachment that I would carry on my running belt, but only if it was hot. I basically didn’t drink on runs. *gasp* Surprisingly, this never bothered me. I really don’t get thirsty or crave water during runs, except in the summer. My regular runs are shorter distances relatively speaking, 3 to 5 miles, but seeing that I want to start marathon training, I knew I needed a solution. I have found it – the Orange Mud Hydraquiver Vest Pack!

I get really excited when I talk about this, so to avoid rambling & lots of punctuation (!!) let me break it down. 🙂  
I’ve got a super short video, pros and conspics of me using the hydra quiver in various ways & a discount code at the end! 

Let’s start with the video.

I show you how easy it is to grab the water bottle, you’ll see that the hydraquiver really doesn’t bounce, I’ll show you where I keep all my goodies & you can see first hand how excited it makes me! 

In case you can’t tell from my giddiness, I really like the hydraquiver! Let’s get into detail as to why.IMG_0468

I know what you are thinking, “really, not a single con??” I seriously sat for a long time trying to come up with at least one ‘con’ and I couldn’t! Orange Mud has literally thought of everything. The hydraquiver covers ALL bases. Storage, ease of use, comfort. It’s all there. 
IMG_0184BONUS feature: you can even use the chest strap to hold your gloves!

This is the best part!

All the ways I’ve used it. I have had so much fun with my hydraquiver and I can’t wait to take it on more adventures with me. 

I’ve used it on almost all my training runs. It doesn’t slow you down!

funny story, they ran out of water at this race, so boy was I glad I had AN ENTIRE water bottle for myself! IMG_0359 IMG_0368

I even took the hydraquiver snowboarding! I kept snacks in it, some extra hand warmers & gum. It really came in handy.

the adjustable straps came in handy here to make sure it fit over my coat

They have literally thought of everything and solved so many problems that we runners ‘run’ into. While these products were created for endurance athletes, they can be used by any and all athletes.

  1. Love your blog! In several of your pics, you’re wearing a grey neck scarf and I’ve been hunting for something similar. Yours looks light, not too bulky (I.e. Not a ton of extra useless fabric), and moisture wicking. Who makes it and where can I find one?!?
    Also, I really enjoyed this post about your hydration pack–thanks for the review!! 😊

    1. Hey Catherine! Thanks for reading and your sweet compliment! The gray neck scarf I have is from Lululemon, it is $28 and called the ‘run fast neck warmer’. They should still have in store. I got mine last year and I saw it again this year. I LOVE IT! I know what you mean about extra useless fabric haha. This one is great, very light and versatile. I can send you the link if you like! Happy Running!! XOXO

  2. Thank you so much for the great review. I finally pulled the trigger and ordered the pack you have, and the the coupon code it covered an insulated bottle and shipping as well! I’m a bit more busty than you (38D) but I don’t have bounce issues so I am hopeful the pack will work well for me.

    1. Hi Keri! I’m so glad you found my review helpful! I love the hydraquiver pack and I think you will really love it too. It’s adjustable so it should work for you. Can’t wait to hear what you think!
