Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Electrolyte Mix Good product, has four different electrolytes instead of just one or two. Also it has much less sugar and a more mild taste than a popular brand whose name might or might not rhyme with tater blade. This makes it much easier on my stomach when using it on a hot day and/or for more strenuous activities. Grape is the strongest flavor, followed by Fruit Punch. The Citrus flavor is extremely mild. I haven't tried Lemon. I think grape probably tastes the best, but for its intended use I prefer fruit punch for the more mild flavor. Another plus to this product is that I have no problem rinsing it completely out of my hydration resevoir.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Try it, you'll like it! Gookinaide, Hydralyte, Vitalyte....WHATEVER it is is great stuff! My marathon training group used this a few years ago- and by chance I tried it one day. Ever since, I stock up every time I'm in REI. SO much better than G**aide, probably more akin to their endurance blend. Citrus/orange flavors are light and easy when you just can't stand one more sweet thing in your mouth on a long, hot day. Perfect the day-after major training or events to restore your energy. I read on their web page about drining it when you have a cold or flu and now I do that too! I think my recovery time has significantly decreased. I wish REI didn't always hide this stuff on the bottom shelf!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best wet thing since beer Best overall electrolyte drink out there, in my experience. I've been using it for years now. The price is less than half of some other drink powders. Clean and crisp (and desireable!) flavors. I most recommend the cool citrus and lemonade flavors - they are the easiest to drink consistently and long-term if you use drink mixes often. While some drink mixes advertise their lack of sugar (and calories), I'm a fan of the moderately sweet taste and the little sugar bump it gives during an adventure. Great performance for workout recovery. Works just as well for alpine climbing as for a hangover, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't get lost without it This is the right stuff - forget the ****aids and the other weird colored stuff. Hydralyte gives you the right amount of potassium, sodium and sugars to keep going when you are working hard in a dry environment. I have been using it for more than 15 years, from the Grand Canyon to peaks in the Rockies to the Sonoara desert and nothing is better. As with any other sugar-containing drink, make sure you sanitize your equipment as soon as possible after use - a touch of bleach or strong hydrogen peroxide solution does the trick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver! I get very easily dehydrated, and used to drink a particular children's electrolyte replacement beverage to combat my thirst. It worked, but man, that stuff is expensive! Vitalyte works wonders, and it is a fraction of the price. Also, it's nice that it comes as a powder, which makes it extremely portable. I drink it after my daily hikes, or after I swim. It's a great pick-me-up, tastes great, and isn't super sugary like other *ades. I even keep an emergency stash in my first aid kit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replenishes quickly I have been using Vitalyte for several years now and it is the best electrolyte that I have ever used. I am in Arizona and do desert hikes in the summer when the temps are at or near 110. I use it during my hikes and also afterwards. It replenishes extremely fast and is easy on the stomach. It really helps to prevent cramping. I highly recommend this product. I do wish that REI carried this in store but if not I hope they continue to carry it online.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I love the fact that it's lower in sugar than most products so it doesn't leave that heavy over sugared after taste. I take it hiking, camping, working in yard, almost anytime I need a pick-me-up. I love all the flavors, but think grape is my favorite. comes in sticks or a large canister so you can take a stick with you when you're on the go or take a canister for car camping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for any age, any sport My marathon husband loves it, never makes you queasy. My young kids can drink it daily in lunch packs, or for their cross country workouts to hydrate and recover. It's glucose and fructose NOT sugar and artificial colors so I can drink it too, I'm a lymphoma survivor. Cancer loves sugar so I love that I can drink this as part of my recovery without jeapordizing my health. Go Green - no more plastic gatorade or water bottles - re-use your own container, washes out easy. I recommend it to anyone!

Why doesn't REI carry Orange Vitalyte? They have all 4 of the other flavors.
