Namig no. 12





Dobrodošli v današnjem namigu. Treningi, tekme, pohodi in sprehodi so v polnem razmahu. Ne pozabimo na eno pomembno zadevo.

Hodiš po visokih gorah naše lepe dežele ali pa nekje v tujini. Razgledi ti jemljejo dih, nove poti se odpirajo na obzorju, a imaš eno majceno težavo. Vode ni na spregled. "Zakaj nisem spakiral kak liter vode več?" se sprašuješ sam pri sebi. V današnjem namigu ti bom dal kak nasvet, kam dati vodo. Na srečo so naše gore kar dobro založene z gorskimi kočami in izviri vode, vendar se na slednje ni zanašati 100 %.

V sedanji ponudbi nahrbtnikov, ni težko kam dati oziroma celo stlačiti še kako plastenko vode več. Seveda nas potem ovira teža, a bolj počasi in z vodo, kot pa hitro in s kapljicami vode.

Začnimo v nahrbtniku. Daleč najboljša rešitev je meh za vodo, ki ga damo v poseben prostor v nahrbtniku, ponavadi je to na hrbtnem delu. Večinoma so prostornine 2 - 3 L. Imeti meh z manj litri je že nesmisel. Skratka, dobra stran mehov za vodo je ta, da se nam ni potrebno ustavljati in iskati plastenke z vodo, pač pa samo vzamemo cev in začnemo sesati osvežujočo pijačo. Slaba stran mehov za vodo pa je ta, da ne vidimo koliko pijače še imamo notri. Se lahko zgodi, da sesamo samo še nekaj zraka, ki je ostal v mehu, namesto pijače. Nekateri večji nahrbtniki imajo več prostora in vanj lahko spravimo dva meha, kar pride prav pri celodnevnih turah, zlasti poleti, ko je bolj vroče.

Naslednja stvar so plastenke z vodo. Lahko jih pospravimo v nahrbtnik in jih imamo spravljene. Boljša opcija je, da jih damo v poseben žepek ob strani nahrbtnika in jih imamo vedno pri roki. Če se gibljemo v prepadnem svetu, priporočam, da jih nekako privežemo na vrvico. Da ob kakšnem našem prepogibanju plastenka ne postane projektil zrak - zemlja. Kakšne pohodniške čutare že imajo zanko v katero navežemo vrvico.

Naslednja praktična pomoč pri prenašanju vode se razne torbice za okoli pasu. Če imamo manjši nahrbtnik, ali pa če se samo odpravimo na vroč popoldanski sprehod, je torbica za okoli pasu, ki ima držalo za plastenko odlična rešitev, ki je vedno pri roki. Samo pazimo, da nas ve veže ali tišči v telo.

Za tekaške zanesenjake pa je posebno držalo za v roko praktična rešitev. Držalo za plastenko je praktično predvsem, ker nas ne ovira pri gibanju rok, pijemo brez nepotrebnega ustavljanja in pri teku navzgor, si še vedno lahko nudimo oporo na nogah.

Potem pa so tu še dodatki, ki jih dokupimo posebej. Držalo za plastenko, ki ga z ježkom ali trakom pritrdimo na sprednjo naramnico. Še plastenka z daljšo slamico in imamo pijačo dobesedno pred ustmi. Obstaja tudi posebno držalo za plastenke, ki ga pritrdimo med naramnice. Sicer je bolj nepraktično, ker moramo sneti držalo tudi takrat, ko snamemo nahrbtnik.

To je bilo to za danes. Z novimi namigi v nove avanture in doživetja.

Do naslednjič

Hello in this weeks clue. Trainings, races, hikes nad walks are in full expansion. Don't forget on one important thing.

You are hiking on a high mountains of you country or abroad. Wievs are breath taking, new path are on horizon, but you have a small problem; you are out of liquid. „Why I didn't pack a liter of water more?“ you are question yourself. In today clue, I'll let you knoiw some hint for where to pust some additional water. Luckly, our mountains are well stacked wizh mountain huts and springs, but don't depend on the latest.

In todays offer of backpacks and bags it is not a problem, where to put or squeete some additional bottle of water. You aren't lightweight, but slowly and realibly with water than fast and with drops of water.

Lets us start in a backpacks. The best solution is a water bladder, which is putted in a special compartment in a backpack, usually in a back area. The capacity is of most bladders is between 2 – 3 liters. A bladder with less capacity is not recomended. The good side of water bladders are is that you don't have to stop every time you need fluids from your backpack. Just take the tube, put it in your mouth and suck that refresihng liquid. Bad side of water bladders it you don't know how much water is in it. It can happen that you suck just an air from the bladder. Some bigger backpacks can have bigger compartment and you can put two bladders in there, which can be practical in the hot summer.

Next thig is realible water bottle. You can go wrong with that. You can store it in backpack or you can put it in a special pocket in the side of a backpack and it will wait there. But be carefull if you are wondering in a high ground. I recomend, that you tie the bottle with a rope. If you bend yourself, the bottle can became an air - land missile. Some kind of outdoor flask can have a pin so you can tie it.

Next practical solution are waistbags. If you have a smaller backpack or you will take just a afternoon hike on a hot day, a waistgbag with a bottle holder is a practical solution on hand. Just take one that is not tight or binds us.

For a runner inthusiast there are holders called handheld. Water bottle holder that you put it in you hand. It is practical, because your arms swings naturaly, you won't have to stop every time and also you can help with your arms on a ascent.

And there are some special accesories that you can get separatley. A water bottle holder that you can attach it with a strap or a velcro on a front shoulder strap. Just a bottle with a longer straw and we can have a liquid at your mouth. There is a holder that we can strap it between shoulder straps. But is not practical because we must unstrap it every time that we put down our backpack.

That is all for today. With a new clue in a new adventure and experience.

Until next time.
