      Comments about Amphipod Hydraform Handheld Thermal Lite 12 ounce Hydration:

      I've used this water bottle for over 2 years now and love it. I got it while training for my 1st half-marathon. Now I use it on every run, no matter how short or long. When I first started using it, it would start to bug me near the end of my longest runs (10-12 miles at the time). Now I've gotten so used to it, I don't even notice it's there, even on runs lasting 3+ hours. The ergonomic shape of the bottle is very natural and comfortable in my hand, much more comfortable than a round bottle. The pouch is the right size to hold my phone or gels, but not both. I use a small Spibelt for gels. The cover that wraps around the bottle is very comfortable on my hand and never feels hot. I also like the cover because I can clip my pepper spray onto it, making it accessible if I need it (which thankfully I never have) but taking it out of my hands. The only slight negative about the bottle is that about a year after I got it, I noticed that it would leak if I didn't get the lid on just right. But now I'm careful to screw the lid on correctly and tightly and test it before I start running. No more leaking problems. Very happy with this bottle!

        Comments about Amphipod Hydraform Handheld Thermal Lite 12 ounce Hydration:

        I like the idea of this water bottle holder because you can hold the bottle although sweating comfortably. However, many times the bottle would leak at the top because the hand cradle strap attaches with a plastic circle at top of bottle which creates an uneven seal of the bottle causing the leaks. At times I was able to adjust the circle and lid to prevent the leaks but ultimately the fix would only be temporary. I ended up dumping this product as it was soaking me and of course I was losing valuable fluids for drinking during my long runs.

        Comments about Amphipod Hydraform Handheld Thermal Lite 12 ounce Hydration:

        This hand-held water bottle worked great the first couple of long runs, but then the valve started leaking. It developed a slow drip or fast sweating leak right through the valve when fully closed. It may have been caused by being run thru the dish washer, as there's no warning on the product not to do so. Maybe that's what did it, but I've ordered a set of 4 more lids to see if that's the case. More testing to come... Otherwise, I liked the bottle.

          Comments about Amphipod Hydraform Handheld Thermal Lite 12 ounce Hydration:

          I run about 4-5 times a week, totally roughly 15-20 miles. Over the past few months I was experiencing some difficulties with the increase in heat in beautiful San Diego. The humidity in particular was starting to get to me, so I wanted something that was small and light, and this definitely delivers.

          I ended up taking off the neoprene sheath as I found it easier to hang onto and wasn't as sweaty after a run. Also, the default location of the strap was on the wrong side, so I turned it around so the bulgy part of the bottle nestled into the palm of my hand better. Doing so allowed me to not really grip the bottle at all and just let it hang in my hand. I haven't had any leak issues as others have.

                I fill this up with gels and or hammer perpetuem when i do distances longer than half marathon. When I first used it, it did leak and I had a gooey mess all over my hands. But I fixed it by using teflon plumbing tape, a few wraps around the threads and it doesn't leak at all.

                    I purchased this bottle because I was nervous about waist packs. It is the perfect size for me. I am training for a 10k then half. This bottle offers everything I need. It does not interfere with my fun, it fits well in my hand. If the lid to the bottle is not fastened properly it will leak, but if you assemble properly it is perfect.

                      I use this bottle for runs of 6 miles or less. By far the most comfortable hand-held bottle I have tried. Water sloshes a bit and have to change hands a few times, but wasn't too bothersome. Great product for when you don't need/ want to wear a belt or water pack.

                        I got this bottle to use on shorter runs in the summer. I have a 4-bottle belt type holder that I use for long runs, but wanted something convenient for shorter runs when I needed less than 2 bottles. This 12 oz. size is perfect. I have tried other single bottle carriers and they bounce around too much or if hand-held type my hand would cramp. This stays in place and I can relax my hand. I am a smaller size woman and am pretty easy on gear. I like the zipper holder as well, it's perfect for gels / keys. This would make a nice gift to a runner friend.

                          I bought this for my longer runs (up to 14 miles for now). I had been using a hydration belt, which wasn't really my favorite thing, so I decided to try this. I opted for the 12oz instead of the 20 because there's just no way I can drink more than a few ounces while running without major discomfort. I was worried about it being heavy, but honestly I hardly noticed it. I've run with it twice so far, the first run was 8 miles, the second was 6. I've never had the urge to take it off or wished I wasn't carrying it. My hand can relax, unlike when I try to carry a bottle with no wrist strap. All I do with my fingers is steady it a little, which is no work at all. The cap hasn't leaked, the plastic of the bottle is fairly rigid and thicker than the bottles on my belt. Taking the strap off to wash it can be a bit of a job, not difficult but it takes a minute. Easy to drink from on the move. The pouch can fit a couple of gels. This is the best thing I've tried for carrying fluids.

                            The hand strap on this bottle is held in place at the top by a plastic ring which is supposed to fit under the cap. I found that no amount of tightening would prevent the bottle from leaking under the cap because of that ring.
                            I almost returned it because of that; but found that I could tighten the cap first, then slide the ring over the mouthpiece. It does not quite fit right; but well enough to hold in place during my run. I otherwise really like the design, so am keeping it; but would advise others to comparison shop.

                                I use this bottle on long runs and it's very lightweight.

                                I use this product while I'm on long trail runs. It is comfortable and not sweaty to hold, however, be careful when putting the lid on after filling as it is prone to leaking (a sobering thought when trying to drink from an empty bottle on a hot day.)

                                  Great product. Lightweight, functional handheld water bottle for runners. The 12oz option works great. Have used recently on routes 7 & 11 miles and feel is comfortable and you forget it's there. A smart purchase.
