I kid you not, out there exists a headband / neckband / water bottle holder hybrid for the active and fashionable.
Now as a runner/cyclist/hiker I admit the gear I wear can look pretty geeky; I don’t usually feel sexy in my black rain pants and garbage bag looking shoe booties. I still don’t feel sexy in my head to toe spandex outfit when I’m training on my bike. But when I saw this product advertised in a running magazine I had to have a few minutes to really contemplate… is this for real?
SWIH (pronounced “Swee”) is a water bottle holder that you can wear as a headband or neckband.
Some questions to ponder:
Will it give me neck pain? If I wear it around my head with the bottle rested against my neck like the photo below I don’t know if my neck muscles are strong enough to support that weight. I guess we all have to start somewhere – I’d start with a smaller 250ml water bottle before graduating to the big guns.
Will it choke me? Wearing it around my neck with the bottle weighing behind I would think the up/down running motion would feel like someone attempting to strangle me but can’t quite make up their mind.
How do I look? We see the world through our own tinted lenses. As someone who wears a one piece cycling spandex bib, who am I to judge.
