When we think about sports water bottles, we generally assume that these are primarily intended for use during the Winter months. However, this isn’t necessarily the case, and having a top-quality water bottle is also vitally important in the winter months. In line with this thought, today, we’re looking at some of the key things you need to know about using your sports water bottle in the winter to help.
Why Sports Water Bottles are so Important in the Winter
Working out in the winter can offer a plethora of benefits. Of course, the weather’s a lot cooler for one thing, and this often means that it’s much easier to keep going without getting dehydrated. However, it’s also easy to get complacent with your Winter workouts, leaving you without the necessary hydration needed to stay fit and well.
In line with this, in order to keep yourself at the top of your game during the winter months, having a premium sports water bottle, such as our Navivva Splendid designs, is hugely important. This helps ensure you’re still meeting all your hydration needs without running the risk of getting caught out without water. And, after all, a workout is always an intense process, no matter what time of year you might be doing it!
How to Keep Your Sports Water Bottle in Top Condition During the Winter
We’ve clarified that having a sports water bottle is hugely important in the winter - but how can you make sure your bottle stays in top condition? Naturally, using a water bottle in the winter can potentially put a lot more pressure on the design, and in line with this, we strongly recommend you take several simple steps to prevent the bottle from getting damaged.
- Clean the bottle regularly: Winter weather can cause a lot of mud and mess. In line with this, we strongly recommend cleaning your water bottle regularly - inside and out - to ensure it remains hygienic to use.
- Invest in a carry case: Not only can dropping your water bottle in the winter increase the risk of it picking up nasty pathogens, but it also makes your bottle more prone to breakage (due to plastic becoming more brittle in cold weather). Investing in a carry case or sleeve for the bottle offers an ideal way to overcome this challenge.
- Prevent freezing: If you have been looking to prevent your bottle of water from freezing during the Winter months, you can potentially prevent it from freezing by taking a few simple steps. Keeping the bottle close to your body, for example, can provide additional heat to keep the water warm enough to stave off freezing.
Of course, while the above steps are hugely important, there’s only so much you can do if your favourite bottle isn’t made to a high standard. So, before you get started, make sure you’ve invested in one of the highest-quality sports water bottles on the market, such as our Navivva Splendid 2.2-litre water bottles with sleeve. Indeed, our bottles are made to uncompromisingly high standards, so why look anywhere else if you need a premium bottle for your Winter hikes and workouts?
