I've run marathons, ultras, and done Ironman
I've tried hydration belts (the front, the back...), vests, and plain old carrying water bottles.
A few friends have used this bottle (the smaller oz) and I thought, what's the point it's so small, I'd just be carrying around anger. However, in the peak of the summer, I resorted to looking at products again and came across the larger bottle, gave it a shot.
Why? Love the pocket, holds my gels and headlamp. I also don't think I realized the concept of this product which is that you actually don't have to "hold" the bottle. Another review mentioned this which actually prompted me to try it. It's fantastic. Another thing I like is drinking out of it is seamless. No longer do I have to uncap a water bottle, bite down, twist, etc... It's a win for me.
There is on serious flaw, sweat. When your hand begins to sweat this bottle becomes really difficult to use and is less comfortable to hold. When your palm has sweat on it it is pushing against a slick plastic surface so it can be difficult to squeeze.
It's a simple solution on the companies part; just put a thin layer of foam where the palm rests. The foam would allow for more grip, absorb the sweat thus making it easier to use.
The bottle I bought is the grey/black/yellow one, which is the style where the zipper goes around the top of the bag. It is just barely tall enough for my Nexus 5X in a Spec case. It can also hold my ID and car key as well without issue.
Update 9/26/17: I bought some hockey tape to but on the smooth plastic which has helped a lot if anyone else has this issue.
So as far as the bad stuff? Well the spout leaks during runs. If you move your hand at all... like any normal person running water will continually squirt out of the nozzle. Also the cover has no grip to it, its smooth all around. So when you get to an aid station and your covered in sweat and water from your bottle leaking its hard to get the cover off.
So Nathan, fix your leaky cap, and add some grip to the cover and this will be a great product. For me? I'll keep looking for something better.
Con's . Your hand holds onto a plastic bottle which tends to get sweaty and wet. The bag is just barely big enough to hold my iphone7 (standard size). I like to listen to podcasts and if you use headphones you have to fold over the cord to get it into the bag. I ended up cutting a small slot in the top of the bag so I could route the cable without having to fold it over. So Nathan, to make this better, make the bag bigger to fit the new phones. I hate that the iPhones, even the non + models have gotten bigger but its the way of the world. And then add a headphone slot. You could even put some nice stretch material over the opening to "plug" the hole for folks who don't use it.
