    Believe the hype.

    Our comrades over at Competitive Cyclist dedicated nearly 1500 words to Skratch Labs’ Exercise Hydration Mix when it first launched. We’ll be a bit more brief —there’s simply nothing else out there that we like more than Skratch for hydration. It’s easy to get down, it doesn’t cause GI distress, and we feel like we can go a bit harder for a bit longer than we can with plain water or other mixes. Engineered by Allen Lim and tested on some of the world’s best cyclists, Skratch Labs Exercise Hydration Mix promises to regulate your body’s electrolyte levels during exercise so that you stay more functional for a longer time. The bulk of this is accomplished via sodium, which Lim found to be the most important ingredient in fighting cramps, headaches, and power loss.

    None of that would mean anything, though, if it weren’t easy on the stomach. Fortunately for us, the use of simple, real-food-type ingredients means that our bodies can digest it easily, and the absence of savoring agents (what you’ll see called "natural flavors” on other mixes) means that you won’t experience a weird, lingering aftertaste, just real fruit flavors that dissipate as you’d expect.

    Light and refreshing

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The flavor isn't overbearing and you can mix it to your taste. I use this for just about everything I do.

    I've tried the Matcha Lemons w/ caffeine and it's OK. It's a good alternative to my regular lemon-lime that adds an extra boost.

    Matcha Matcha Matcha

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've used the Matcha w/ Lemons quite a lot, and it's my favorite flavor. It's simple, straightforward, and it gets the job done. Apples and Cinnamon is awesome on those cold days, either on the bike, hiking, or sitting by the fire, although Allen Lim might not like it when I mix it with bourbon!

    It tastes alright

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I bought this for a 5K run and it definitely does what it supposed to. I bought the raspberry and found the aftertaste strange. It wasn't what I expected. Giving 4 stars because I liked the product but not the taste of the flavor I received.

    No More Nausea!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Sometimes after really good, hard long runs I get really nauseous and a couple of times I've even fainted. After doing some research and blood tests I found out I'm extremely hypoglycemic and obviously not hydrating properly DURING long runs. I emphasize during because as I've always raced competitively where I'd run with as little gear as possible and drank water or gatorade after a race or workout, never during. Now that I'm not racing and I'm out there on trail runs or long runs for 2+ hours, I feel much better if I'm hydrating throughout my run rather than just after, refueling as I go rather than waiting to hit rock bottom and trying to recover after. I've avoided these drink mixes for a long time because I have a really sensitive stomach but also because there are so many out there that I was overwhelmed with all the choices. If you feel the same way, get the Skratch packets to try out and then assuming you like them get the big bag. I haven't had any stomach issues from these so far! I run with an Ultimate Direction pack and depending on my mood I either put the Skratch in soft bottles or in a bladder. Right now I have the pineapple flavor and I really like it. My favorite is raspberry and sometimes to switch things up I mix flavors, raspberry lemon is really tasty!

    Best Yet

      I've used many hydration mixes including Coke and water, but have found that the Skratch Hydration is, by far, the most effective mix. The combination of essential salts and low non-essential additives such as coloring agents, allows for a quicker absorption and effectiveness. A big fan of lemon-lime flavors, so that has been my go to.

      Tasty

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I never used to use any hydration mixes. Water was all I ever rode with. Allen Lim came in where we worked and gave a very entertaining and informative presentation that convinced me to try this stuff. Guys. It works. Taste is nice and light, and i genuinely feel like I can perform better.

      Quite Nice

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Skratch is refreshingly simple stuff that gets the job done. Pretty much just powdered dehydrated fruit and salt, with well balanced flavors. Love the matcha and lemons and pineapple flavors. Not crazy about the raspberry flavor.

      Tasty and satisfying

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have been using this stuff on my long days out and it has been great! Really is a lot better then just drinking water and tastes wonderful. I like using the caffeine to help keep the focus when I'm getting drained.

      How often can I take it ?. I usually hike about 15 miles every time (7 hours)
