As of 4-7-2013 there is a newer model of the Quickdraw Plus (see the NathanSports website). After buying the newer model at a local store, I bought a second off Amazon and realized that there were two versions. I personally prefer the newer model, mainly due to the option to hold it a second way. I was planning on returning the second bottle to Amazon but the cost of shipping it back would hardly be worth it.
I have yet to run with the older/Amazon version of the bottle. I will add an update to this review after doing so.
After running with both bottles, I still prefer the newer model. Here are a few more comparisons:
-Both bottles were about the same in how easy they were to drink from--the difference in nozzle sizes didn't seem to make much of a difference.
-The bigger nozzle on the newer model is slightly harder to open and slightly harder to close.
-The top fabric band on the bottles is different. In the old model, it was elastic. This makes it much easier to take off the strap and clean the bottle by itself. In the new model, this band is stiff and it is either difficult or impossible to remove the strap from the bottle. I prefer the newer version because the hand strap stays more firmly in position while running.
-The compartment size on both bottles seems the same.
Final opinion: I think that this is a good product and I personally found the Quickdraw Plus (both versions) to be more comfortable to hold than the other running bottles I've handled. Having said that, I strongly prefer running with a Camelbak, as I find that swinging the weight of a water bottle on every stride is a bit cumbersome after a while.
The new version is now available on Amazon.
I HATE holding things when I run. I seriously do, which was why I laughed at myself when I decided to buy this fun little guy.
I decided to try it out during my last 1/2 marathon. Figured it I could deal with it for 2 hours, it was a keeper and I really loved it. you don't have to "hold" onto anything. The hand strap has a thumb hole and it's kind of elasticy and you can tighten/loosen as needed. I found I could make a fist and the bottle didn't go anywhere. I never held the bottle, it was just attached to my hand!
I used Nuun in the bottle and then drank the water at the stations. I find gatorade/powerade makes my stomach ill so it was nice to have the electrolytes that work for me with me and then just plain water at the stops.
I use honey stingers for my longer runs and put those in the little pocket. I also put my gels in there as well. I tried my phone (HTC evo 4g) and it fit in there, but I have a phone pocket in my skort that works well for me so decided to use it for my nutrition. I don't think I could have done the phone + anything else as it was a pretty tight squeeze, but it did fit. I'll probably put my phone in there over my lunch break runs for convenience.
All in all, this thing got me through a 1/2 marathon and I had no issues with it for the entire time, in fact barely knew it was there.
I bought this for doing runs longer than 10 miles, where I don't need as much water as a camelbak holds. The bit that holds your water bottle is great. The hand grip portion is suspended with elastic so you can let the bottle go but not feel like the strap is hurting you. The little pocket is great for keys (has an clip inside to hang your keys on), gels and anything you don't want to carry in your shorts. The contact/emergency card is a nice touch, although if is so small some emergency responders may not be able to read it, but they thoughtfully attached it to a lanyard so it wouldn't get lost if pulled out.
This is one of the worst water bottles I have. Over a 20K run, it will splash about 1/3 of the water all over you. This could be great on a hot summer day, but not so fun when jogging on a windy, winter night. The bottle has done this since day one and has never been run through a dishwasher. The good news, for me, is I didn't buy this for the water bottle, just the container and I have plenty of excellent Camelbak podium bottles that fit, albeit not as perfectly as the original Nathan bottle. I see the bottle as a freebie, so I didn't deduct points for it being awful.
This is an excellent solution for runners and hikers that need enough water for an run or walk that last up to 2 hours.
