battlefield drink for hydration

"I've recently put your product through some 'test and see' on my own time, ranging from heavy lifting sessions to distance running, to rucking equally far distances....all in 110°+ heat conditions. That being said, it stands up to everything I've thrown at it."

- A. Pruitt, USAF

Official Hydration Supplier of the DoD

Hoist is one of three approved electrolyte hydration beverages of the U.S. Department of Defense. We are proud to support our Soldiers and aid them in maintaining health and hydration.

The average person needs between 8-300mg of electrolytes per hour for endurance activities. That number increases depending upon weather conditions, sweat rates or cramping issues. Hoist uses an electrolyte blend comprised of sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium to provide superior rehydration when it is needed most.

Hoist currently meets all services compliance:

  • AR 40-25 – JCCoE Approved for IMT
  • AFI 44-141
  • OPNAVINST 10110.1
  • MCO 10110.49

Hoist is honored to be the approved hydration solution for our US Military. That is why we partner with multiple non-profit foundations to provide support for enrolled and retired Soldiers.

Nine Line Foundation

Nine Line Foundation is a charitable organization, dedicated to meeting the financial and specialized needs of severely injured soldiers and their families. In combat, a Nine Line is an emergency medevac request, and is often the difference between life and death for the most severely wounded soldiers. Nine Line Foundation aims to serve in a similar manner, offering a lifeline once wounded Veterans return stateside.
