What is the HYDRA SmartBottle?

Just a couple of weeks ago I wrote about the new Torch 2 cycling helmet that I backed on Indiegogo, the crowdfunding site. As I said at the time, I thought there was some interesting information in the write up whether you were a cyclist or not. Well, now I have a new product that I backed on Indiegogo and it has even broader appeal than the Torch 2.

The HYDRA SmartBottle is way more than just a new water bottle. As they say on their website,  “The once mundane ‘water bottle’ has been transformed to be so much more! When you’re on the go, lugging around all your favorite gear can be restricting. Being light and agile means leaving good stuff behind. But not anymore! Introducing a brand new category – the SmartBottle!”


As you can see from the illustration, the HYDRA doesn’t look like any kind of ordinary drinking bottle.

I could spend a couple of hundred words writing about the HYDRA and letting you create pictures in your mind, but I don’t think I would do it justice. So, I have included the You Tube video from their website and you can see it for yourself.

Check it out. As you will see, any person who enjoys the outdoors will be able to find a use for it. I know I can’t wait to take it with me on bike rides. Okay, I will list a few of its attributes. It lights up, it plays music, it holds water, it lightens your load when  you go out to play.
