Good point -

I recall one day on Monomoy I was stalking big fish and suddenly my legs went gimpy and cramped up at the same time. I had to sit in the water up to my chest and guzzle water before I could walk again. I had to hold my chestpack out of the water with my arms cause I could not stand up! Struck me as funny being in so much water and getting dehydrated.

I was fine in a few minutes and proceeded. I soon bought the hydration insert for my chestpack and started to use it regularly.
