The Salomon Park Hydro Handset features a 16 oz (500mL) soft flask that collapses as you drink to prevent liquid from sloshing and a unique hand strap that allows your hand to stay relaxed. The soft mesh hand strap can be worn on your left or right hand, and in several different ways so you always find a comfortable position. A mesh zipper pocket is big enough to fit an iPhone, keys and gels, while a small open mesh pocket fits a single energy gel, ID or key; reflective details increase visibility in low-light conditions.

Comments: For me this is the best drinking bottle for long distance runs I tried. A) nice to have a zip-bag for the housekey. B) softflask bends around the wrist nicely, the water doesn't move around inside the bottle because when you drink no air comes inside, the bottle gets smaller as you drink. C) drinking is easy, softer and easyer in use then the hydrapak flasks (which I didn't expect as salomon works together with hydrapak) D) you can tighten it on the upper side of the hand (up-side-down), in spite of the handpalms as shown on the pictures above. The big advantage is that you can still make a fist while running and you can still freely use your hands and fingers. you can even use your hands while jumping/climbing over fences. In my farming area, the pahts have fences every 200m (0,12miles) to keep the cattle in place, jumping over using both hands is way faster then using the little steps to climb over... Only this flaskholder allows you to do so (when mounted upside-down on back of the hand) Disadvantage: you need two of them on long distance runs. The weight of the water on only one hand can make the body unstable when tired. Altough it's something that I only notice as a problem on half-marathon-distance training. Nice about using two flasks is, beside the balance, that you can take water in one and isotone-drink in the other :) Hope my English is OK, Greetings from Holland, Marc
