This mesh wrist strap and the pocket are improvements on the the older Ultimate Direction bottle that I have, but I don't prefer the new kicker valve over the older "traditional" pull-out-to-open and push-to-close top. The kicker valve doesn't seem to let as much flow and if you squeeze the bottle it can limit the air going back in to expand it. I am also concerned that the new top will be more difficult to clean when using it with sports drinks, etc., though I have not tried that yet. Overall, I am still very pleased and have been satisfied with all of the Ultimate Direction products I have tried.

I used this belt last weekend for the run portion of an Xterra (off road triathlon). The belt was very comfortable and secure with no movement while running. The holster carried the gel flask very securely, but the unzippered pocket did let one of my Hammer gel packs (that are a bit larger than some others) slip out. I used the belt to carry my gel and carried the Ultimate Direction Fastdraw water bottle by hand (which is one reason why you wouldn't need a belt to carry water).
