A Cure for My Drinking Problem: The Torhans Hydration Review (Updated AGAIN!!)

A couple of months ago, before Ironman Arizona, I was on the search for a good front hydration system to use. I finally found a great piece of equipment, the Torhans Hydration System. You can read my original in depth review here.

From the review, you can see I had a problem filling this thing because of the interior baffle. The thing was good at keeping water in AND out. After reading my review, Torhans got in touch with me and told me that if I cut a baffle out, this would solve the filling problem while keeping water in on the bumps.

I followed their advice and the unit worked awesome at Ironman Arizona. In fact, the thing worked so well staying topped off with the filling and retention, I ended up skipping a few aid stations on the bike entirely. If only I could say the same for my bladder.

Anyway, I’ve noticed I have been getting quite a few hits by people looking for more information about the Torhans bottle. To be fair, I thought I would share a video demonstrating the effortless filling of the bottle with one baffle out. So here you go!
