Introducing the Hydrosleeve™

The Hydrosleeve™ patent-pending system provides a hands-free fluid delivery system that ensures you will remain hydrated throughout the duration of your run.  This enables you to achieve greater physical exertion and consistently improved peak performance.

 

Our Arm Hydration System™ integrates seamlessly with the body allowing you to hydrate mid-run without disrupting your natural running rhythm. By conforming ergonomically to the upper arm, the Hydrosleeve provides an innovative and convenient way to store and access fluids, without the need to carry bulky water bottles.

Hands-Free Solution

The angled water valve is designed so that drinking is as easy as lifting your arm to your mouth.  The first hydration system of its kind, the Hydrosleeve fits 7 oz. of water securely on the upper arm to allow runners a hands-free way to rehydrate without breaking stride, slowing down, or stopping.

Design

The Hydrosleeve™ is made of high quality synthetics with an adjustable stress-free strap.  With an insulated reusable bladder that minimizes water sloshing, and a pocket for keys or energy packs, runners will find it a necessary component for their running routine.

Usage

..........................................................................................

Therma-Cool Insulator

Therma-cool lined to keep your liquid chilled and refreshing.

       

 

 

Angled Pressure Valve

The valve is set at a 15˚ angle to comfortably reach the mouth.  This allows water to easily flow out while keeping air from entering back in the bladder. It can be rotated for left-arm or right-arm usage.

Anti-Slosh Bladder

Bladder

Made from high-quality TPU material, the bladder features a heavy duty zipp-lock for ease of filling and cleaning.  As you hydrate during your run, the bladder compresses down to eliminate sloshing.

FAQS 

Why do I need the Hydrosleeve?

When you go for a run, do you take water with you? When we ask this question most people respond with, "No, because I don't want to carry it." The Hydrosleeve makes it easy to stay hydrated on your run (hike, walk, etc.) thanks to a simple design that eliminates the need for heavy, sloshing and awkward containers.

Is the Hydrosleeve patented?

Yes.  We have multiple patents pending in the US and internationally.

Can I license the Hydrosleeve technology?

Possibly.  Contact us to discuss this further.

Is the Hydrosleeve just for hardcore runners?

Not at all. A hardcore runner will enjoy the benefits just as much as the casual low-mileage runner/walker.  

Where does it hold the water?

The water is held inside the anti-slosh bladder - a small pouch that fits into the sleeve. 

Will I run out of water during my run?

Runners should be able to maintain hydration on a 3 to 6 mile run using the Hydrosleeve.

How much water does it hold?

It holds between 6 and 8 oz. of water.  Future models will hold other quantities.

Does the water stay cool?

The Hydrosleeve is lined with a therma-cool insulator that keeps the water refreshing for the duration of an average run.

How heavy is it?

The Hydrosleeve, with a filled, 6 oz. bladder weighs about 15 oz. 

Will the Hydrosleeve throw off my stride?

Not any more than an armband that carries a media device. The position on the upper arm is a low pivot point on the body and keeps added weight close to your core.

Will it fit my arm?

The strap comes in three sizes that will fit most arm widths (refer to the size chart above).

What colors are available?

The base is a black sleeve with accent colors in gray, blue or pink.  There will be additional colors and styles available in the future. 

Can it be refilled?

The bladder can be removed and filled with any water source such as from a water fountain, faucet, or bottle. It can easily be resealed just like a zipp-lock bag.

Is the Hydrosleeve made of quality materials?

The Hydrosleeve is made with high-quality synthetics. The bladder is BPA free and reusable.
