Cold and refreshing on a scorching desert training run? It’s not a mirage, it’s the FastDraw Extreme. The neoprene band that wraps around the bottle stops the runner’s body heat from warming up the liquid inside, while protecting their hands from getting ice cold.

**Update 01/07/13 - With the new year I decided to pull this old water bottle out again to give it another try. I read Anton Krupicka's blog, and he is an amazing ultra distance runner who is sponsored by Ultimate Direction. I saw a picture of him carrying a hand held similar to this and I figured he wouldn't be messing around with a water bottle that didn't work on 100 mile+ runs. I went back to the bottle and decided the nipple had to pull out farther, and if I broke it trying than I broke it. I pulled it like I was trying to rip off the nipple, and to my surprise it popped up. I threw it back and the water flowed out great! I pushed in the nipple to retract it and pulled it up maybe a dozen more times, and now it goes up and down much easier. I'm not sure if all the bottles come this way or if I got an abnormally stiff one, but now it works great. I wanted to update my review to let people know my original difficulties were mostly user error. I have changed my original review from 3 to 5 stars.
So far I like the new style holder. Especially in the winter time. My hands will stay a little warmer with the insulation while the older style had your hands touching the plastic. My only gripe if you will, it can be a bitch to remove and put the holder back on the bottle.
No review should omit critical comments, so here are mine. I think the storage pouch on the bottle is too small; I can barely get my car key in there. I've got large hands, and I think someone with small hands might have a problem holding this thing for long periods because the circumference is too large at the top. There seem to be finger indentions on the bottle (to help in gripping), but any efficacy is offset by the insulation. I consider all of these minor issues; I only offer them in the event someone might be curious.
The pocket is large enough to hold a GU and a little something else, and the strap is very comfortable and caused no discomfort on my hand while doing a 20 mile training run for Boston. The mouthpiece has to be extended from the bottle in order to get any liquid out of it, and it does require a bit of a learning curve to get the desired amount of water out of it. I have only tried this bottle with water (with a bit of lemon juice mixed in to negate any "plastic taste" from the newness of the bottle, even after it is washed out several times) and not with Gatorade or Accelerade or any other type of mixture. Therefore I can not speak to how sugary substances may or may not gum up the mouthpiece. I suspect however, that since the bottle is so easy to clean that using liquids other than water shouldn't be an issue if proper care is taken.
