In My Case: Caps Are NOT Leakproof
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The following review is based on my personal experience with two of the 10oz bottles. I've used these bottles for lots of training runs and a few trail races, and they serve the purpose, but I don't recommend them and am looking for an alternative bottle of similar size/shape.
The problem with this bottle is that the cap doesn't seal well, so if you squeeze the bottle at all to drink, the liquid will come out the opening as well as around the sides of the cap. And, because the opening is so small, it's difficult to patiently drink from a small stream when you're running, particularly in a race. Most times nowadays, I take the cap completely off and sip from the bottle, then replace the cap and put the bottle back on my waist pack--this way seems to be easier as it allows me to drink the desired amount more easily/quickly and (when I'm drinking a powdered drink mix) it keeps my hands from becoming sticky from liquid leaking out around cap.
For me, the leaking problem has persisted even when the cap is closed. If I hold the bottle upside down and apply any pressure, liquid will escape from around the seal of the closed cap and leak out.
As an aside, the company Ultimate Direction is great and I love their other products, just not these 10oz'ers.
