Trail running is all about efficiency, performance and the right balance between carrying essentials and not overextending yourself. The choice between a handheld soft flask, a running belt and a running backpack depends on several factors, including the length of your run, the weather, your personal preference and the equipment required.

Handheld Soft flask

A handheld soft flask is an excellent choice for short trail runs, usually up to 10 kilometers. This portable bottle is useful for hydration on the go and can also accommodate small items such as energy gel or your smartphone. It's lightweight and easy to hold, making it perfect for fast, agile runs.

Running Belt

A running belt, sometimes called a hip belt or drinking belt, is suitable for medium distances. This provides storage options for gels, phone, keys and even a small water bottle. It distributes the weight over your hips and provides more stability than a handheld soft flask. It is ideal for trails of 10-20 kilometers.

Running backpack

A running backpack is a must for long trail runs, especially those where you need more gear like extra clothing, water, first aid supplies or even a map and compass. It spreads the weight evenly across your back, making it more comfortable for longer efforts. A backpack is also suitable for trail runs in changing weather conditions, because you can take extra layers with you.

Conclusion drinking systems

The choice between these options is personal and depends on your specific needs. It's often useful to have multiple options so you can tailor it to the requirements of each run. The most important thing is to ensure you are hydrated and have the necessary safety equipment, especially when hiking on remote trails. Whatever you choose, make sure it's comfortable and won't restrict your adventure on the trails.
