    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.

    • A hydration mix with the power of nutrition science behind it
    • High sodium content gives your depleted body what it needs
    • No artificial junk or filler makes it easier on the belly
    • Subtle, all-natural flavors go down gently during hard efforts
    • Formulate for exercise specifically—try another hydration mix for daily hydration

    Matcha Heaven

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Stomach issues are a thing of the past for me, thanks to this mix. If you're in the market to try a hydration mix, definitely give this a shot. While the matcha flavor might not be for everyone, it's my go-to for feeling refreshed and fueled on long runs. Cannot recommend this more!

    Fabulous Stuff

      Since I read about the guys behind Skratch Labs, i have tried and used their powdered drinks. They are competitively priced (too expensive but that is kind of the going rate). I have stuck with citrus flavors mostly and I've never had digestion or stomach ache issues. My preferred mix is to blend in a 50-50 ratio of the lemon/lime with the matcha/lemon. Sometimes on long rides the sweetness of citrus gets "sticky" even without sugar. So, the matcha gives it a bitterness that means I can drink it on any ride - short or long.

      The right fuel the right tool

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      If you're an endurance athlete, look no further. Skratch gives you what your body needs. It won't upset your stomach because there's no junk in it. Very easy on the palette so you drink it like you actually like the taste.. It's a hydration mix that changed the industry. I highly recommend it.

      Skratch Labs Exercise Hydration Mix

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I'm very active and I haven't ever used a product like this. It really helps me power through long intense periods of exercise and work. Nice lemon flavor that doesn't over power you with sweetness. My go to refueling drink source. Looking forward to trying more flavors.


        Love skratch for maintaining electrolytes and hydrating quickly. I’m a big fan of the pineapple flavor and don’t find it overly sweet or sugary, just good flavor.

        IMO - one of the best hydration products

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Title is pretty self explanatory...I've tried a lot of hydration products and even dabbled with making my own, but I keep coming back to this. I was using for a long time and it's never let me down

        Hydration that doesn't suck

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I am a scratch labs believer! They have really done their homework and it has resulted in a great drink mix that will keep you from cramping, but will also provide you with flavor that is not a terrible mockery of (in my case) Lemon Lime. Seriously though, I have had a few other drink mixes over the years and they usually lack in the flavor department, and while they focus on replenishing electrolytes, they don't really do much for energy and taste terrible. Skratch Labs to save the day, it tastes great without being too sweet like a typical

        Gotta have it

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I seriously love this stuff. I have been using another drink mix for years until I tried Skratch Labs. The flavor is so much better! I really like the lemon-lime and pineapple flavors. It dissolves really well and is perfect for any occasion when you sweat.

        Skratch hydrating during Speedgoat 50k

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I'm going on two years of using Skratch Labs for all my endurance training and racing, and it's amazing. For my longest mountain days, I'll preload with a glass, and then take a bottle of the exercise mix and then some hypermix powder to refill along the way. All the flavors taste great though my favorite is the raspberry. If you haven't tried the Apple Cinnamon yet, give it a try after your cold workouts. Amazing stuff!

        The Best Stuff Outthere

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I can't count how many bags of this stuff I've used over the last couple years.

        The only flavors I haven't tried is the Strawberries and the Passion Fruit. I'd definitely like to give those a shot.

        I'm a big fan of the individual servings when on extended trips. I used this stuff on Mt Rainier and definitely was a nice way to add some happiness to some junk weather by drinking some warm Skratch.

        Favorite Flavors:

        1 - Lemon Lime - this is by far the best flavor and mixes the best
        2 - Orange - this also mixes real well and tastes great
        3 - Apples & Cinnamon - this is best warm and with a little whiskey
        4 - Matcha Lemons - tastes good, I'm just not big on caffeine
        5 - Pineapple - I'm not a pineapple flavor lover, but this is definitely the best tasting pineapple food I've had.
        6 - Raspberry - This one mixes the worst of all the flavors I've tried but tastes good

        Flavors TBD: Strawberries / Passion Fruit

        Great Supplement for High Intensity

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This product has been super helpful when going on longer bike rides with plenty of climbing. Normally I am just drinking this on the climb and save some water for the downhill. I have also used it for some longer distance day hikes or after a long party night. Great way to stay hydrated!

        No race gut

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Skratch has become my go to for drink mix. When it comes to days in the saddle, training or racing, this stuff is perfect! It's easy on your stomach and doesn't have an overly sweet taste, but still gives the nutrients needed when pushing your body to the limits. My favorites are the lemon and matcha tea(w/caffeine). I race cat1 road and have been ordering this from backcountry for almost two years now and couldn't be happier, great prices and customer service!

        No more headaches

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Well Alan Lim is a genius. My post ride headaches are gone. Additionally my soccer playing daughter has a great mid/ post training and game refuel without carb overload! Lemon lime tastes GREAT!

        skratch for the win

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Skratch labs is my go-to hydration mix. Works better and is better tasting than others... and I've tried lots. The only downside, is I like to use tablets for on-road refills. The single use packets that Skratch uses just aren't as convenient.

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