Gear. No matter who you are, no matter what you do, everyone has gear that they rely on to get them through the task at hand.

Whether you're a tow truck driver wearing a reflective rain suit, a crossing guard with a hi-vis vest and sun hat or a construction worker grabbing your cooling vest and hard hat with neck shade as you head into work, there's no doubt that PPE gear plays an important role in helping us reach our goals.

PPE. Thanks to the recent pandemic, the term "PPE" is now part of our everyday language. "Personal protective equipment" has previously been limited to equipment, or gear, that keeps you safer on the job. But now, everyone has become familiar with PPE – masks, gloves, shoe covers, face shields – just to get through their daily lives.

But what about what's in your water bottle?

Turns out, what you're drinking is as important as the right footwear or proper head wear.

That's why at Hydration Depot, we've taken a new approach to hydration by now offering: Drinkable PPE®. There are helmets and hard hats to protect the head, gloves to protect the hands, and special footwear to protect the feet. Why not apply the same logic to protecting the inside of your body? After all, hydration is vital to keeping your body working optimally.

A little history about Sword: It Started with Cancer.

Sword Performance co-founders, Dr. Shawn Stasko, Ph.D, and Dr. Scott Black, M.D., were partners in a research study exploring how to fight fatigue experienced by cancer patients. By understanding how the body works, what it needs and when, they found an effective way to combat fatigue through hydration and innovative fuel. As amateur athletes outside of work, Shawn and Scott devoted themselves to perfecting their electrolyte hydration formula and bringing the benefits of healthy hydration to everyone.

After countless hours of deep research, trials and many different formulas that just weren’t perfect enough, they finally cracked the code: Great tasting, effective hydration made from clean, simple ingredients and nothing extra or artificial.

We are proud to offer healthy hydration: SWORD® and SHIELD®. Two different hydration lines to provide exactly what the body needs to replenish and refuel, at work, in sport, or anywhere life takes you.
