We’re not runners here at OhGizmo HQ, so we can’t begin relate to the things that are a big deal to those who are. We suppose that holding a water bottle in your hands for a few hours, or having it on a belt of some kind, bumping against you, can get pretty annoying. So Salomon has gone ahead and created the Sense Hydro S-Lab Set, which is a special wrist strap designed to hold a 250ml soft-sided folding bottle without requiring you to actually close your fingers around it. Yeah, maybe that could give you an edge, what do we know? The folding design of the bottle means no sloshing of liquid as you deplete it, and the $40 Solomon is asking for will get you two of these, so you can have one on each hand.
They should be available in the next few months.
