Comments: The new cap doesn't leak as much as the older one. You just need to really smash it down at times but mostly it's VERY reliable. The thing that bugged me was that the new 3M reflective strap is too thin and doesn't hold well. That said, I have been running without cinching it lately and it's easy to hold the bottle. I think if you have small women's hands (I have small men's hands) this might be an issue but the holder itself is tight enough. It's a nice size pocket too.

Comments: This bottle leaked within the first ten steps of my run. The handgrip with the thumbgrip is super comfortable. The pocket is great. The insulated bottle kept my water cold for 5 miles. Again, too bad about the leaking bottle. It leaks out of the cap, not the nozzle. And the pressure of running plus 22 oz. of water on the cap actually pushes the cap off one of the threads, so you'll constantly be pushing the cap down flat. Overall not satisfied. I could live with it, but will try something else.

Comments:I primarily bought this because of the large pocket. It can fit my iPhone 5s w/a lifeproof case, car key and a poop bag or 2. For Nathan bottles, this one isnt bad and the new top seems to be better than previous models....much less leaking. I used this bottle in a spring ultra and it was comfy to carry all that time. I bought a spare bottle so I could use the pocket on my insulated Camelbak podium bottle, so it fits that bottle too (although not as well)
