I strongly recommended the hands-free bottle holder called the ThirstClencher. This product was created by a new mother named Gina Tepper, who wanted to be able to carry a water container around without occupying her hands, which are often occupied with the baby now. I was provided the ThirstClencher hands-free bottle holder by the maker, but wasn’t under any obligation to recommend it, nor told how to test it. I did my own durability tests as you will read.
Review of the ThirstClencher, a Hands-Free Bottle Holder
How many of you have had the trouble of your water containers leaking inside your purse, bag, backpack, etc? It’s a constant problem with me to where I make sure my papers have to be surrounded by plastic whenever they share my backpack with a bottle of refreshment. I’ve wished I could carry my backpack water container easier and totally away from the papers and other items without having to carry the bottle in my hands, especially if I’m running 3-6 miles at a time with my backpack on. Well, it’s possible now because of the ThirstClencher.
This hands-free bottle holder easily clips onto one’s belt, toolbelt, or loop on a backpack, purse handle, etc. It was easy to adjust to the bottle size via the non-skid, Velcro-like collar that my ThirstClencher came with, to secure the container. After putting the collar around the container, I violently shook the ThirstClencher to see if it would come loose and fly out of the bottle holder’s grip, but it didn’t.
This Hands-Free Bottle Holder, the ThirstClencher, Withstood My Tough Durability Tests
To further scrutinize the ThirstClencher, I conducted some tougher tests, and must say I was really impressed. I attached this hands-free bottle holder on one of my backpack’s outer buckles and put the collar around a full bottle of water (roughly a pint). I then proceeded to run “cross country” for about 30 minutes on snow, concrete, dirt, grass, and asphalt with my ThirstClencher attached to my backpack. I could see my shadow as I ran, and noticed that this hands-free bottle holder was being slung violently back and forth for roughly three miles, yet it stayed on, not coming off once. This showed just how tough a grip the collar had on my drink despite a pint’s worth of water constantly slinging back and forth for thousands and thousands of feet. Not only that, the lid didn’t come loose either. The outer part of my backpack stayed dry. Now, if one really has a cold bottle, some of the “sweat” from the bottle could potentially moisten whatever it comes into contact with, but if the container is away from the interior of something like a backpack or purse, it’s relatively a moot issue.
I ran back home with the ThirstClencher for half an hour with it around my waist pack. I didn’t feel any intrusion on my left thigh as I ran, and once again, the collar of this hands-free bottle holder kept a grip on the water container. If this hands-free bottle holder can withstand my tough tests, I can conclude that it’s going to be durable for regular, everyday use.
