This is the first handheld bottle system that I have ever tried from Fuel Belt. https://www.fuelbelt.com/s.nl/it.A/id.1432/.f
It retails for $14.95, but can be found for around $10 on the internet. My first impressions were that the bottle feels “weird” in my hand. Albeit because I have been conditioned to the comfort bottles that I have been using since I began running years ago.
I noticed that in order to squeeze the bottle, I had to re-position my hand in the holder to do so easily.
The Neoprene holder, on the other hand (no pun intended) is very comfortable and keeps liquids colder than other holders I have used.
I also liked the large pocket. I was able to easily store 3 gel packs in the pocket.
The other downside, in my opinion is the small opening on the bottle. Its1-1/8” opening makes it hard to add ice or clean the bottle easily.
- BPE Free
- Neoprene holder keeps liquids cool
- Large pocket can store 3 gel packs
- Bottle is an awkward shape that makes squeezing inconvenient
- Small opening makes cleaning, adding ice, or scooping in powder difficult
Recommendations: I am thinking of using the holder with a regular 22 oz round bottle
