With dual 10 oz. water bottles for better balance and quick hydration, the Jurek Endure is great for any length run. A water-resistant pocket is sized right for cell phones while a stretch mesh pocket will easily handle keys, energy food, or gloves. A bungee system lets you carry additional gear such as a lightweight jacket.
Offering a water-resistant pocket for your phone, a stretch mesh pocket for food, and a secure smaller pocket for your valuables that can be re-positioned as needed, the Jurek Essential is a great companion to any of our hand-held water bottles. Uber comfortable and breathable, you won’t be able to tell you have it on.
About as minimalist as a hand-held hydration system can be, the Jurek Grip consists of two elastic straps and a single, adjustable hand strap that allow you to hydrate on the fly. And less weight in the hand means more energy for moving forward. The Grip comes with a 20-ounce UD water bottle but is compatible with any similar-sized bottle.
