Over the past 3 months our team has reviewed a great deal of hydration options on the market. We have tried, perhaps not hard enough, to present to you the best options for various run categories (100, 50, 50k, Adventure, Womens and Multipurpose). Our disclaimer is that we all recognize that runners are very dynamic in their needs, the trails they run and the supplies they need, this is meant to highlight packs in what we perceive to be these categories and open discussion on what you, our readers like.
Here are the best handhelds

Pistol Pete Stoughton is an expatriate of Jersey. Never venturing far from the confines of the sidewalk, Pete slowly learned the joys of the trails in his post graduate years. Prior to an ACL surgery last year, Pete completed numerous ultra distances including a finish and preceding DNF at the Wasatch100. Some of Pete's greatest running accomplishments include a 5 minute mile at age 35 and PRs prior to his ACL surgery, and running with Dean Karnazas and the current record holder of the Fight for Air Climb (18,800' in 6 hours). Through these experiences, Pete has had the opportunity to work closely on product development and testing of companies such as Brooks, Patagonia, Merrell, Goretex and Hoka.
More importantly, Pete is a proud father of two beautiful children and happily married to an amazingly patient wife. In his spare time he is a teacher in Park City, UT and coaches the Park City High School Mtn Bike Team.
