I've been taking a small karrimor bottle with me on my longer runs - but it tends to leak very slightly down the sides - which is a bit annoying; especially as if I take something like cherryactive I end up with sticky hands! Can anyone recommend a small, easy to carry bottle that doesn't leak? (I'm only training for a half so I don't think I need to take more than this with me). Thanks very muchly :)

I used to use a run aid bottle... not sure if the company still exists... but the type of bottle does. It's oval shaped and your hand holds it through the middle. Comes in 250ml and 500ml sizes.

I also use a Hilly bottle which has a hand strap. Seems fairly good

500ml mineral water bottles from the supermarket take some beating I reckon. Assuming they don't have those 'sports-tops'

I generally just use a lucozade sport bottle, and can't recall it ever having leaked. I think the design is surprisingly good, especially for a device with a mass produced valve.

I have one from Runners Need. It holds around 500ml I reckon. It has never leaked a drop. Handy-holdy-holey type but more rectangular than oval. Made by "Hanteens" if you want to search out an online / unbranded version.

I always take the bottled water you buy in supermarkets (any brand going) and have never had one leak, sports cap or not...

Got something to say?
