Unlike a regular bottle, drinking from this soft flask does not require tilting the head back. This is very pleasant and somewhat allows to keep an eye on the trail as you drink. Drinking is done by gently pinching the valve with the teeth while squeezing the flask with one hand, or even two hands if you want to drink even faster. Once you release the valve, the flask can be squeezed as much as you want, nothing will come out.
Running with the 500ml/16oz in my hand is a breeze compared to a rigid bottle with a bottle holder. Being soft and slightly stretchy, the flask offers a perfect grip without requiring any extra handle. The size is perfect for my large hands (I'm 1.96cm/6'5 tall and my hand measures 22cm/9in from tip of index to tip of thumb) but it may be too large when full for more averagely-sized hands. It is however thinner than a standard cycling bottle. Also, after drinking two sips the flask will fit in almost all adult hands as it shrinks.
This brings us to the third exceptional feature of this flask. Since on average a handheld bottle is only half full, about half of the volume is wasted. Not with this flask though, which will only occupy the space that the fluid takes, plus the mouthpiece and the part of the flask where it screws in. Once empty, the flask end ups vacuum-packed and folds nicely to fit almost completely in my closed fist without any special effort (pictured).
Durability: don't know; looking good after about 6 long runs (~12 hours); probably a risk of puncture if carried with sharp objects
Uses: great for running; surprisingly fits in a cyclist's back pocket; handheld or in the front pocket of a running vest; water for hydration; power smoothies (1-2 bananas, 1 tbsp peanut butter, 1 tbsp honey, almond milk, 2 pinches of salt); not good for showers since it requires both hands, however it can be emptied quickly quickly toward the end of a race if needed
Comfort: barely-there feel; does not get stuck in the shirt while bombing down trails since it aligns naturally with the forearm; feels very organic, adapts exactly to the shape of the hand that holds it
Noise: none; doesn't slush since no air comes in
Looks: as pictured; comes only in blue, but fairly discreet anyway.
Insulation: none; fluid takes the temperature of your hand and vice-versa; not tested with hot beverages
Ease of refill: good enough for racing; doesn't unscrew as easily as most cycling-type bottles with large openings.
Cleaning: fill partially with some water and detergent, rub opposite sides until clean
it makes the flask much less low profile than the other version
I returned this one and i use the other version for skiing and biking all the time - theyre great
Hint- fill them slightly less than full and fold them in half and they fit in front ski jacket pockets great - i dont even notice 500ml of water is in EACH pocket
I also put them in the lower back jersey pockets of my bike jersey X3 (other version of course)
2 - to use smaller valve you need to squeeze it with teeth/fingers, but in same manner it could be occasionally squeezed inside your backpack by something solid on your backpack for example.
3 - In general, it is really close ti Hydrapak soft flask, but with Salamon logo on it (even stated powered by Hydrapak).
Top that you drink out of is a little tough and reminds me of a camelback that we use to hike so it took a little bit to get used to again.
