The Best Water Bottle
The best water bottle for a recumbent may be the 100 Oz. Camelback Unbottle.
I like the way it easily mounts on the back of the seat with no extra straps or pockets that really aren’t usable and just get in the way.
It holds a 100 Oz., plenty until your next stop. Plus it is nicely insulated and has a gigantic mouth. The big mouth makes it easy to clean and fill with ice.
The 100 Oz. Unbottle is available at Amazon and Nashbar for about $30.
There is something special about just having a sip of cold water anytime you want it. No reaching around for the water bottle and fumbling it with it while you drink. The tube of the Unbottle just rests there on your helmet strap and without taking your eyes off the road you sip and ride. No need to wait to guzzle water until you can’t wait any longer. Just take a sip of cold water from the insulated Unbottle every few minutes to stay hydrated.
