First of all - It FEELS cheap.

I have had it installed for several months now on my road bike which I had not been using as much as my TT bike due to IM training.

I had read a few rather critical reviews of this device (hydration system sounds a little exaggerated) but decided to ignore them because they sounded as if they were made by folks who don't put in big miles when cycling, I do. If you put in long miles at some point or another two frame mounted bottles will not be enough. Your only alternative then is a backpack canteen which has downsides in my book, it changes your center of gravity when its full, when its empty it just sits their on your back and in both cases I don't like how hot I get with the backpack against my back.

This gives me the equivalent of another two bottles, the frame carries the load not me and its simple. If there is one suggestion for improvement it would be to make the storage pocket a little bigger, it can hold a tube and some tire levers some cash and a credit card or two but nothing more. A little more space would give enough room to add a multi-tool. For what its designed for I think its great. I may buy a couple more for my cycling friends...

Just received my shower pass and I think I am going to like it, however, I took the water reservoir out of the case to take a look at it and see how I would empty it and clean it... it took me 10 minutes to get it tucked back inside. The material around the opening does not stretch. Hopefully I am missing a trick... but at this moment I am frustrated. I believe once I get it installed and use it I will be happy. Just wish it was easier to remove and clean the reservoir.

UPDATE ... I am updating my review... I give this a 2 star. I returned it for several reasons... 1. All my tools to fix a flat would not fit in the bag. 2. The unit is VERY cumbersome. Once you get it on the bike it would be a chore to remove the water bottle to empty it and clean it out. You cannot just slip it out of the zip pouch, you would have to disassemble it from your bike seat. And 3, one of the little magnet pieces was already coming loose.

Great idea, poor implementation.

I am loving this thing. Have had only one issue with it so far and that was the flow was not fast enough. I changed out the mouth piece with one I had from a Camelback and it works great.

My wife bought this for me for Valentines Day. Within 6 months the strap holding the bottle to the seat snapped (swapped replaced FOC by REI), both retracting cables broke, and before I tried to those replaced, the hose developed cracks that started leaking while just sitting there. Once I sent them pics and told them of my newer problems, I never heard from them again. This is a great idea, but product is definitely made with sub-quality materials.

I like this for short rides on hot days (keeps your back clear & ventilated), but I have a Camelback for most rides & it keeps my water from freezing better in the winter as well as a bit more handy anyway.

From the moment you pull this item from the box to the time when you take your first sip, you realize this (despite the marketing blurb crediting an engineer with its development) is a badly designed, $80 water bottle with some tubing and magnets.

First of all - It FEELS cheap. And, as it turns out, it is. It seems like they took a good idea, put it together as cheaply as possible, spent $13 on parts and packaging and then had it manufactured in China and they're selling it for $50-$60 to stores and it's retailing for $80

To touch on previous reviews, it's made from poor quality materials, the bottle can NOT be easily replaced in the case, the case is not insulated, there's very little room in the "pocket" and fluid doesn't flow well through the tube.

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE - The ratchet device used to attach the device to the bike is over done. It's silly. Look I love a ratchet as much as the next guy, but when was the last time when you lost precious seconds putting a large water tank on your bike? Seriously - Are you trying to beat your personal best in tank attachment time? House is on fire, can't waste precious seconds? BOOM _ got you covered. Here's a ratchet-attached water tank. WHEW, that'll save the day. Thanks Ratchet Tank. I just don't get it.

And does it need a quick release ratchet for the END of a ride? Seriously, because why - you're finishing a ride and your tank caught on fire and your first thought is "Get this flaming empty water tank off my bike as fast as you can? If so, you're in luck, I can have that off in three seconds.

Awesome. But why? Why is speed so important? Does the tank have somewhere important to be? Does it have a meeting to go to? People to see? Seriously, why a ratchet?
