Betsy O.wrote a review of Nathan ExoShot Water Bottle - 12oz on May 17, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Bought thinking it would be perfect for my shorter runs...promptly tossed the receipt because, well, itself a Nathan. Immediately realized there is no filling the bottle with the sleeve on, so took the sleeve off, filled, and tried to put sleeve back on while the lid leaked all over the place.
Finally get the sleeve on with half a bottle of water gone and take a drink... seriously the most foul thing I have ever tasted! I actually threw up from the taste feeling it caused - and yes I washed the bottle. Not sure what is in the plastic, but have washed numerous times, soaked the nozzle in water, vinegar, and hot/cold alternating. Get nauseous every time I try! This was a terrible waste of 40 bucks that I will never get back! What a waste!!!!
