Comments: Well, I wonder if the other reviewer got the first shipment of these since the one I rec'd was fine in terms of leakage (well, there occasionally was some spillage around the cap but not from the place where you drink. I am returning it for three main reasons: 1.) It's freaking gigantic. I knew it would be big but it's gigantic. Makes sense now considering its shape and that it's 24 oz. 2.) The trigger grip is fine but I only carry one bottle and switch hands every ten to fifteen minutes to keep things balanced but if you want to do that with this properly you'll need to take off the strap. Nuisance. 3.) The pocket is long but too thin. I would just get the updated version of their standard handheld. Now you can really cinch the grip and it is really a pistol grip and its pouch is larger.
Cons: 1) Cap leaks, even when closed 2) Cap is difficult to drink from without spilling fluid all over your shirt 3) Bottle shape makes it impossible to dispense fluids when holding bottle in the "rest" position. You must squeeze the bottom of bottle to dispense fluids. Note: I used the cap off a Camelbak Podium Chill to at least make this product serviceable.
Overall: This is basically a $5 USD squeeze bottle with a fancy shape, pouch and much higher price tag. Skip it and buy a Camelbak Quick Grip or an Ultimate Direction Fast Draw instead.
