In a time when you can drink a lot of stuff water is still pretty ok! We have water bottles, and you can put other stuff in them too. We have insulate bottes, regular bottles and these bottles are just as relevant as other bottle holders.
Some sports people say it's important to be attentive to your hydration habits in the winter since it's cold out you may not think you need water.
These Zefal bottles pictures are Made in France so that's pretty neat.

While we naturally thirst less in cold weather, the need for water doesn't disappear. In fact, dehydration can sneak up on you in winter, with potentially serious consequences. Here's why staying hydrated is crucial even when it's chilly:
Less Sweating: The cold masks sweaty cues, but we still lose water through respiration and dry air.
Dry Indoor Heat: Crank up the heat? Crank up your water intake! Indoor heating sucks moisture from the air and your body.
Exercise Dehydration: Winter activities like shoveling or brisk walks still require hydration even if you don't feel sweaty.
The Importance of Staying Hydrated:
Boosts Immunity: Water helps fight off winter colds and flu by keeping mucous membranes healthy.
Energy and Focus: Dehydration can zap your energy and make you feel sluggish, even more so in the winter doldrums.
Brainpower: Studies show even mild dehydration can impair cognitive function. Stay sharp with water!
Kidney Health: Dehydration increases the risk of kidney stones and UTIs, common winter woes.
Healthy Skin: Dry winter air can worsen skin problems. Water keeps your skin supple and glowing.
Tips for Winter Hydration:
Carry a reusable water bottle: Make it visible and convenient to remind yourself to sip throughout the day.
Infuse your water: Add fruits, herbs, or vegetables for a flavor boost without sugary drinks.
Warm beverages count: Herbal teas, broths, and even warm water help with hydration.
Listen to your body: Don't wait for thirst! Drink water at regular intervals even if you don't feel like it.
Eat water-rich foods: Soups, fruits, and vegetables contribute to your overall hydration.
Remember: Dehydration can happen quickly in winter, especially if you're active outdoors. Make hydration a winter habit just like bundling up! Your body will thank you for it.
