Comments: Nice hydration solution. My men's large glove seems tight on my hand. I usually wear a men's large golf glove for reference. I found running with these quite easy. First trip out a 9 mile run. They are challenging to refill quickly, at water stops, during a run. I might recommend ordering a second 8 oz flask and even the weigh between both hands and going non-stop on long runs. I also bought the 16oz bottle but think I'd prefer the (2) 8oz solution, unless super hot out.

Comments: I've been using this regularly for a few months and it is the best handheld hydration system I have tried -- it certainly beats bottles! There are definite improvements that can be made, however, and as it is a fairly new product (I think) I am hopeful Salomon will implement some changes. Here are two suggestions: 1. There is a thin strip of adhesive material that runs along the inside of the two red straps that protrude from the wrist and wrap around the bottle. These adhesive strips should be much thicker. 2. As the other reviewer noted, there needs to be some method of rolling up the bottom of the flask to at least the beginning of the red straps referenced above so that it doesn't flap about as it gets emptied. 3. I have also been a bit disappointed in the quality of the flasks, as mine sprung a leak after a few months use.
Comments: Bought this a while back when it first came out. Had been using just the bottles before and love the non-sloshing and ease of use. The glove is a (somewhat) useful addition but there is a point when the bottle gets about 1/2 empty where it flaps a little which was slightly irritating to me. Without the glove I just fold the bottle over in my hand to eliminate the flapping but the glove makes that difficult. Still a great product and I would def recommend it. Bottles are super durable, very easy to clean, and the bite valves are nice ones as well.
