I have tried loads of things over the years, have even tried to adapt a babies sipping bottle top, but have not yet found the ideal one that is discreet, doesn't need tipping up to be able to extract the water from, which makes me look like I am slurping through meetings. Currently use bottled mineral water bottles with sports tops, but they are quite slurpy and undignified (I think)and can see people watching me, wondering why I need to keep diving for some water every few sentances, although in meetings do try to get a glass to put my water in, which looks much more normal and acceptable.Do also use a travel bottle (normally used on for use on flights, which has helped a bit and is much less bulky, but does not hold much, so is for short excusions only. Have also tried the reservoirs you put in your ruck sack for hiking and you sip the fluid through a tube when I am going for walks etc, however find the rubber taste from the tube end makes my mouth go even drier.
As I am from UK, was wondering if the US market has anything we don't. Would love to hear how people get in with this problem as I am trying to get on with my new normal, but want to become a bit more refined over it, so that it is not obvious I have a problem.
