Could be much better
I'm not very happy with this product. It leaks around the cap, the collar/hand grip is nearly impossible to remove, and it is way overpriced.

perfect for long runs
easy to use, I like that you don't have to touch the spout to get water out. Perfect size and fit for long runs when you don't want to carry a lot but need to water down in between water stops.

Great solution to stay hydrated on runs
I have to admit, I completely dreaded having to carry water with me but now I don't leave home for even my short runs without carrying this bottle with me. Its light and easy. You don't have to grip the bottle or strap - it just holds on to you! I will say that if you don't take care to screw the lid on correctly, it will leak. I was frustrated with it the first time I realized it was leakinng then realized it was my fault. Only down side is that its a little hard to get the water bottle in and out of it but I think its designed that way so it won't bounce or come loose. Nice pocket is perfect for holding Gu and a car key.

Disappointed and Dehydrated
Bought the Quickshot several months ago and really liked it...at first. It fit in my hand nicely, was light and the top didn't need to be opened and closed to get the water. Then, after a few uses and a few washes, the top started to leak. By mile 2 of a 7 mile run I was soaked on my right side and had NO water to finish with.

Good but belt might be better for me
I bought this bottle to beat the extreme temperatures. I have never carried water in hand or on a belt. I found it just a little odd to drink from when the water level was low. You get a sloshing sound while running. Not being accustomed to carrying anything in my hands, I had to keep switching the bottle from hand to hand due to the "extra" weight. It is easy to use without having to break stride. It is a good product - just might not be the right one for me. Might try a hydration belt next.

Love my Nathan!
I use my Nathan on longer runs. I fill it half full with water and then ice cubes. By the time I need a drink, it's just the right temperature. It doesn't splash, it isn't heavy, and it fits right in my hand. It's just the right size--anything bigger might be awkward and uncomfortable. The salesman found this online for me because it wasn't hanging on the display. It only took a few days to have it shipped to my house. I will say that the first time I took a drink, I hit my lip, but that was just due to my inexperience with sippy cups.

It's a water bottle. It holds water. What more could you ask for? The angled top is nice, as well.

better than the old pull spout.
I use it while running my two Siberians huskies.

Handy...yet hands off!
Great little hydration bottle! Thumb goes through the loop with the strap in the palm of your hand, adjustable velcro strap. Your hand with thumb...is free to grip a cell phone or hold pepper spray or the dog's leash. Hasn't leaked yet. Quick release of fluid. Not heavy even when full. And a reasonable price.
