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.

Works great. I got this drink system for longer rides 100+ mile, typical road bike has 2 bottle cages @ 2-3 hours of riding in the heat. This extra 42oz is like an extra 2 bottles or 2-3 hrs more of riding before stopping to refill. I can now get a solid 4-5 hrs in before having to stop for refills! The mounting system is excellent and allows for quick removal. I personally added a neoprene sleeve to the drinking tube to help keep my drink cool, otherwise you get a few ounces of very warm drink. On the road when I stop to refill I mix my drink in a bottle then pour into the Veleau, this way I get them mixed good and it's sort of like filling up your gas tank :)
Pros:
Works great
solid mounting system
tool pocket
large capacity

Cons:
Heavy, and then even heavier when filled of course

I purchased this as a replacement for the exact same hydration system that I've had for almost 5 years. I love this system. I'm an avid cyclist and for many years I used a CamelBak hydration system, but really didn't care for having the water sit on my back (it's heavy and it made me hotter on my rides). I was tickled when I was gifted this 'under the seat' system. I love that it holds 42 ounces (that's more than you can get a bottle and cage for in almost all cases) and I love that it has a small storage system built right in. It did take some getting used to for me; you have to suck pretty hard to get the water through the tube, especially at first. After many, many miles (literally thousands), it started to leak and pieces (clips to hold it to the bike) started to break, but I got almost 5 years and SO many miles out of it, that is not a complaint. The storage compartment really is quite small (I can fit a small tube of sunscreen and 2 - 3 Gu's in there, but it's tight. My cell phone does not fit.) As I've bought exactly the same system to replace my 5 year old one, clearly I recommend it in spite of the drawbacks. In fact, when I'm taking a particularly long ride, I'll bring along a bottle of water in my cage, but rather than drink from the bottle, I'll fill up my Showers Pass system instead. It takes less coordination to drink from the tube and that's a good thing for me! Like I said, I love this system and I do recommend it, but I do recognize that it's not for everyone.

I bought two of these so we could hold a bit more water for our mtb around the north rim of the canyon. I dont like packs and didn't find a frame h2o solution that would work with my set up.

These hold 1 1/2 of a standard sized biden, which isn't too bad providing the weather isn't too hot. There was one day where I ran out early but it was a solid 6 hours on the saddle.

I've read other reviews about the tubing so decided to not set it up and "cork" the bottom opening. The straps held everything in place really well and I unstrapped it and refilled my bidens. Whole process to 2 minutes at most.

The only con with this is that the zippered section is pretty small for a longer ride. It's a choice of either spare tube and levers or tools. Got around this by strapping my spare tube between the unit and seat. Was able to carry multi-tool, chain tool, repair kits, levers etc.
