Vittel Mineral Water
Advantages: Great water and hydrating
Disadvantages: Sports cap not present on many smaller and flavoured waters
Vittel is a fantastic mineral water, it does what it says on the tin, and isn't trying to be to in your face and over the top like drench. No stupid slogans or paragraphs about the importance of hydration on the label, its water, its in a bottle and thats it. Perfect.
I buy vittel in many shapes and sizes of which you can see from the picture. The most common of which is the 500ml bottle widely available in newsagents and places like Makro. You can get bigger bottles but i find the plastic is thinner on these and they are a nightmare to lug around. The 1L bottles have a sports cap and that's great for endurance sports when you have no access to water but i would recommend the smaller bottles if you are near places where you can buy more. That unnecessary weight in your bag when hiking is like having a house brick dragging you down. I have not yet seen a 500ml sports cap bottle and think this is the only room for improvement in future for vittel products.
The main water has no real taste and the minerals are very healthy for you although i have experienced no effect from just drinking out on a walk. I suppose if you do more strenuous athletic sports this might be of great benefit to you. Their flavoured water has a clear and easy to taste flavour, its not to extreme and not unnoticeable so i think this is a perfect balance, unless you're used to Robinson's drinks in which case these are very bland compared to their fruit juices. They are in a different league and would compare.
The water is neither hard nor soft, its about right. Using it to wash your hair with shampoo is fine, i wouldn't recommend it but when you're camping you get desperate.
These are reasonably priced, come in a wide variety of sizes, have an interesting mountain pattern on the bottle (Something unique to Vittel water) and they taste just like they should, the water is bland and the flavoured water is not strong but equally not weak. This is a perfect balance and the way bottled water should be. They also have a sports cap on the 1L which i handy but i'd like to see this on the smaller ones including the flavoured waters.
Summary: fantastic water, highly recommended.
