Polar Bottle makes these fantastic lightweight, triple insulated, BPA free, handheld water bottles in various sizes that are ideal for hiking in the Limassol mountains. Cost of the 709 ml size is around €18 on Amazon and worth every scent.
I absolutely love these handheld water bottles, I find this design so incredibly comfortable to hold. These shaped cuts out allow the minimum amount of grip to keep the bottle secure in your hand.
Polar Bottle is not just another plastic sports water bottle, firstly it’s ingeniously triple insulated with an internal reflective foil as the second barrier to keeping your water cool for many hours of summer hiking in Cyprus. From start to finish of my hikes, I know my water will be cool and delicious.
I often use High5 electrolyte tablets during the summer. It's really convenient to drop one or two of the electrolyte tablets into the bottle for my longer hiking routes.
Polar Bottles are easy to squeeze when you want to drink and easy to shut off the valve during your run with no leaking. I love the versatility of these durable bottles, perfect for hiking, running and cycling.
Maintaining a Polar Bottle is a simple rinse and wash under the tap with a drop of dishwashing liquid and storing the Polar Bottle in your freezer will stop any mould plus the bottle will also be nice and cool for your next hiking adventure,
These bottles may seem a little expensive compared to the regular plastic sports water bottles that you see everywhere in sports shops, but really there is no comparison in my experience. I’ve been using Polar Bottles for more than 10 years now, it’s the only bottle I’ve found comfortable to hold, keeps the water cool, is silent during hiking with no noisy sloshing sound, easy to wash and keep hygienically clean and lasts for many years before needing replacing.
I can highly recommend the Polar bottle as a tough and versatile water bottle for hiking in Cyprus. Available in various sizes, I'd highly recommend the 24oz size which is 709ml.
