Nathan ShakerShot bottle review
A cunningly designed sports drink shaker bottle that does the job better
Like sandwiches, trampolines and Lego, sometimes the best things in life are the simplest. The ShakerShot from the Pennsylvanian accessory specialists Nathan fits into this category.
>>> Best recovery drinks of 2014
In a similar vein to Jamie Oliver’s salad dressing shakers, the USP is the weighted mixer ball, which successfully mixed up our pre-run electrolyte powders and post-exertion recovery shakes without any lumps or foam.
At £13.99, it may be more expensive than a conventional plastic shaker but it has none of the ‘plasticky’ aftertaste of cheaper shakers, and it’s easier to clean than either the filter or wire ball offerings found elsewhere.
It’s a fine-looking specimen, too, with the tough, clear BPA-free plastic more stylish than your average shaker.
It’s also perhaps worth noting that the Eastman Tritan plastic used here has successfully overcome a long and bitter lawsuit in America over its perceived levels of estrogen, yet question marks remain over Eastman’s testing procedures. So have a read around if this concerns you.
Verdict: Simplicity defined in a striking and practical shaker, 86%
