    Comments about Nathan Quickdraw Elite 22 ounce Bottle Hydration:

    I've had this for about a month now. 22oz bottle holds plenty of fluid. Could be heavy for some people if filled all the way, but if that's the case just don't fill it so much. I've done long runs (3+ hours) without feeling strain on my arms or anything like that.

    Large bottle opening makes it easy to fill and add powder from scoops. Haven't had issues with the top leaking while running.

    Zippered pocket barely fits my Samsung Exclaim cell phone (slide-out qwerty keyboard phone). Sometimes I think the zipper is going to bust at the seems, but hasn't so far. Pocket would easily hold keys, a couple gels, and money/ID.

    I have a hard time inserting the bottle through the loops on the holder. Mine may have been sewn a little too tight, who knows. At least I know once it's in that it's not going to come out!

    I have not tried other bottles, but seems like most water bottles would fit, so the provided bottle could be easily replaced if needed in the future.

    The hand strap is comfortable, but I personally like to switch hands every once in a while. I haven't had problems with the velcro hand strap coming too loose or undone.

    There is no barrier between your hand and the bottle. I like to freeze my bottles before runs (Texas heat) unless it's winter time, so my hand gets cold. One problem is that the heat from my hand transfers to the bottle, so my drink gets warmer faster. Might not be a problem in the winter though.

    The material has been through my washing machine several times and not fallen apart yet. I put it in the dryer also and didn't notice it shrank at all. Only time will tell with durability. I have a Nathan Speedbelt that hasn't lost it's velcro sticking ability after years of washing, so I would expect the same thing for this Nathan product.

    One thing I might change is to have adjustable velcro loops to hold the bottle, so it could accommodate various bottle sizes, and not make it so hard to put the bottle in.

    Overall, I'd recommend it. I'd give it 4.5 stars if I could, but can't do 5 because of how tough it is to put the bottle in.

    has a nice grip and is perfectly functional. Due to the size it takes some getting used to running with it. I like it better than having to wear a water belt.

    Works well - they fixed the leaky tops that were on some bottles - a little pricey (knocked down 1 star) but more secure than the other model.

      Comments about Nathan Quickdraw Elite 22 ounce Bottle Hydration:

      Near perfect design in every way. I ordered one, then realized that my balance was being thrown off when bottle was full. Ordered another, couldn't be happier. I felt as though they would slip from my hand for the first few times, but figured out a better hand position that works very well. The only two complaints I have are that (A)the bottles don't stand up when being filled because of the strap that runs underneath them. You have to lean them against something. (B)my hands didn't grip the top of the bottles all that well, so you have to really make sure that they're sealed shut or risk getting wet. Otherwise, perfect product. I can easily contain my blackberry tour and car key inside one of the bottle pockets, using the other for misc. storage.

        This water bottle unit is PERFECT for my trail runs. It can hold atleast 2 GU packets, id, a car key and more. I love how comfortable it is in my hand and so easy to drink from. Such a drastic improvement over my old water bottle. Plus it's BPA free and dishwasher safe. Love, love, love, this item.

          Comments about Nathan Quickdraw Elite 22 ounce Bottle Hydration:

          I am an Ultra runner that lives out in the country. It is hard for me to find water on my super long runs or very hot days. I used to safety pin my gels to the waist band of my shorts, but that tended to cut into my skin over several hours of running. I purchased two of the bottles, one for water and one for some type of sports drink as well as giving myself addition space to carry items that I knew I was going to use and didn't have time to dig out of my waist belt. The nathans bottle gives me plenty of space to put 3 Hammer Gels and my house key in one pocket while packing away a snack sized zip-loc bag of some kind of anti-chafing cream, some electrolytes, and an additional gel in the other water bottle pocket.

          As for the design used to carry the bottle, I LOVE IT!!! I have notice about 4 different ways you can carry it with the current handle design. It also does not loosen just like they advertise. I stopped wearing a wrist sweat band in the hotter months, but the hand strap is made of a soft material that doesn't scratch your hands and is soft and quick drying enough to use to wipe the sweat off your face like you would a wrist band. I also used the bottles on a run that had no tree cover, plenty of blazing sunlight and was 92 degrees out, in which I had put ice and water in the bottle. I'm not sure if the humidity had anything to do with it, but the bottle stayed cool for at least 5 miles, which is uncommon for the bottles that I have tried.

          All in all, this is a great bottle, but might take a few days to get used to carrying it "if you have never carried a bottle before".

            I was suprised by how much I liked this product. Once I started running, I didn't even notice I was carrying it. The zippered pocket is small, but of sufficient size to carry keys, gels, and/or snacks. As the bottle empties, you can feel some sloshing, but its not terribly distracting. The only draw back is that it only carries 2O oz of fluid, so you might need two.

              I took this in a five mile run and it was nice to be able to stay hydrated on the way it was not heavy, but I did get tired of carring it. When we go on our long runs we usually stash water at 1/2 way point. I may stash this so I would only have to carry it 1/2 full the rest of the run. OVer all its a good product. I would recommend it!

              So far so good. I wanted an alternative to a waist pack so i tried this. It comes as advertised. My phone OR key OR a gel will fit in the pouch, but that's pretty much it. I haven't experienced the leaking that i've read about in other reviews. I do like it much better than the waist pack, but I wish the insulated version was available here.

                  This handheld water bottle has been great after a short adjustment period of having a water bottle "fused" to my hand. The hand strap stays tight but sometimes needs minor adjusting during long runs when I switch hands. That is not an issue since it is so easy to adjust with the Velcro system. It is very light and breathable and after a mile or so warm-up I almost forget that I have it on my hand. I don't really grip the water bottle since the strap keeps it in my hand. The pockets are great for keys and gel packs. The colors are also very cool. This water bottle helped push my mileage to the next level.

                    I use the quickdraw elite when I run. I really like it but it tends to leak. My first one I only had for about a year and I only used it when I went long miles which was around once every other week. I bought another one I am giving it one more try. Has a great zipper pocket to put my goo etc.

                      I use this on my trail runs and love how easy it is to hold. I just slip it on and forget it's even there. Perfect for those runs where a hydration pack is a little overboard yet you know you need something to sip on along the way. Perfect pocket for cell phone and an elastic pouch for a gu gel.

                            I've just started increasing my mileage to prepare for a marathon and needed some sort of hydration system. This unit worked perfectly. After the first mile the unit felt natural. Easy to open and close with no leaks. The pockets are a perfect size for a couple of gels. Highly recommend.

                              Great to be on long runs. The zipper pouch is large enough for keys and a few GU's. Not heavy.

                                I have over 100 miles with this, including a 27 mile trail run in the Colorado Rockies. Very comfortable to hold, easy to use. Feels great and works well. I like the pouch, which easily holds to gels, plus a third can be stashed in the outer pocket. I will use this for my next ultramarathon.

                                  I've recently upped my mileage and needed a way to carry h2o on longer runs. This bottle is everything it claims to be - the strap tightens nicely on your hand so you don't have to actually hold the bottle, and there are two very convenient pockets - a larger zip pocket and a mesh outer pocket. I stick some shot blocks in the outer pocket and my key and ID in the zip pocket. This is my new favorite running accessory.

                                    I couldn't believe how well this thing worked out. First use was on a 14 mile run and it never chafed or slipped at all, basically held itself on my hand. No marks, abrasions, or even bothers of any sort after use. Nozzle is comfortable and easy to use, pocket is perfect size for some small refuels and an i.d. Bottle is nice and big. I'll never run with a belt again. Look forward to longer runs just so I can bring this one along.

                                    Works well - they fixed the leaky tops that were on some bottles - a little pricey (knocked down 1 star) but more secure than the other model.
