    Powdered Energy Drink?

    I love me some 5 hr energy in the mornings when chasing muleys on the rolling plains. I know the starbucks instant coffee is pretty good and that is my current choice for getting going in the morning with my backcountry gear, but does anyone make something dehydrated similar to a 5 hr energy? Thanks!

    Don't know how it compares to 5-hour, but Wilderness Athlete makes a good powdered drink.

    There is a product called ZIPP FIZZ, they sell it at costco. You mix it with 16 oz of water. It replaces the electrolytes you lose. Not really an energy drink but you notice it at the end of the day.

    I bring Crystal Lite Energy packets that I found in our local food store. The ones I use are the strawberry ones, 5 calories per drink. I just use it more for something to give the water some taste and they come in packets. I'll gather the ingredient for energy is just some caffeine. I've not tried the 5 hour energy but to me these are no more kick to it than a cup of coffee or tea.

    Genesis Pure makes Energy with Wheat Grass. Actually a healthy, alkalinizing energy drink that provides up to 8hrs of mental focus and clarity. Comes in tropical punch and sugar-free grape. I gave up coffee over night for it and don't miss it!
    Can get it at genesispure.com/mlrauch or get your own membership and save 45%.

    I've seen a few hardcore backcountry guys recommend emergen c. Have not personally tried it though.

    I have tried the wilderness athlete stuff. It all taste crappy. You are better off going into a human powered store(ie triathalon) and getting some of there products. way better taste, more good stuff per package and not as much packiging as wilderness athlete.

    I tried it, the orange flavor, but did not care for it much. It gave the water some flavor but I was expecting something different.

    I like c and wilderness athlete, Its what it dose for you after days of depleting your resources. With wilderness athlete I like to mix the hydrate and recover with energy and focus, I think its called a superman. It works for me, If I don't stay proactive with hydrating I will get headaches fast. I swet a lot.
