Versatility for any athlete.

We can think of many uses for The Body Bottle, even though Ultimate Direction made it for runners. This collapsible bottle provides compact convenience that climbers, backpackers, and hikers can appreciate. Once empty, you can roll it up and stow it in pockets and compartments without taking up much space.

Great For Bikepacking.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got this to help reserve space on my frame bag. The bottle packs really well and can be cleaned easily. Use it only for mixed powder hydration beverages and works great!

Pocket hydration for the win!

Grabbed one of these to keep in my jacket pocket in the winter. I was always feeling dehydrated on pow days and never wanted to stop for water breaks so this works perfect!

For the Fast

These are great and you can never have enough of them. If you want a light bottle that will pack down and immediately give you space to hide your gels or other nutrition this is it. Super easy to clean and dries out nicely. I would highly recommend the UD soft bottles

I was skeptical, then I tried the bottle

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I never really saw myself using one of think funky looking bottles. I saw my trail buddy using one in his new UD pack and I succumbed. It was love at first use. Here's why they rock...

-they're insanely light and packable. Once you finish the liquid inside you don't even know the bottle is there.

-they don't bounce in the front pockets on your running vest, which I found a lot of people to be surprised about.

-there's not nasty plastic taste

-they're durable. I've dropped mine multiple times expecting them to start leaking from holes but they haven't yet!

Reach out to me if you have any questions about trail/ultra gear.

adequate, but not great

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got this to keep in my jacket when snowboarding rather than invest in a Camelbak. After using it a few times, I have mixed feelings.

Pros: The small size fits nicely into a larger interior pocket in my snowboarding jacket, and the bag itself seems well-made and doesn't leak when closed.

Cons: The bite valve has an awful chemical taste to it (the water inside tastes fine if my tongue doesn't touch the opening), although I'm hoping that'll fade with use. My biggest beef with this bottle is that the valve is easily compressed by accident when I sit down to do my bindings, which releases water inside my jacket - no bueno. I've started keeping the bottle inside of a quart-sized Ziploc to avoid it leaking onto me, but that's cumbersome and shouldn't be necessary. Seems like a hard flip-cap of some sort to cover the valve would solve this.

Overall, it was inexpensive enough that I'll keep using it, but I wouldn't buy another one.

Dig this bottle with the Jenny Vesta!

Soft bottles are the way to go!!! I started using this with the Jenny Vesta - as you drink the bottle compresses down and takes up very little space.

Pretty great.

I was stoked to see UD was making a soft bottle which could greatly reduce bounce in their vests. Despite some flaws I use them as my main bottles paired with the AK vest 1.0.


- Significantly reduces bounce when used in a vest. With a hard sided bottle, the sloshing when it's 50-75% full can be quite a bit if you're really going fast down a hill. This bottle doesn't have any slosh by design

- The bite valve is better than the valve on the normal UD bottle in my opinion. It dispenses liquid faster and despite not having a locking mechanism I've never seen the valve leak even during travel.

- You can drink from the bottle in any orientation. You can drink from the bottle from the vest pocket without really using your hands.

- Doesn't seem to build up funk. I don't wash them often and they've never gotten smelly or moldy even with old sports drink.

- Packs up really tiny.


- Too small. I think they could have made it a few ounces bigger while still easily fitting in the vest pockets. Sometimes it's just not enough water to make it between water sources or aid stations. My solution is to carry three body bottles: two in the front and one in the back. But then you have to awkwardly get it out later.

- The opening is too small, which makes it harder to fill up at streams but also really hard to put drink mix in without wasting any. Get a funnel or something.

- In the right conditions (gradual downhill with bottle ~50% full), it can bounce out of your vest while you're running, but I've only had this happen once.

Ask and you shall receive: UD is now making the Body Bottle PLUS. It's a 17-oz version of the body bottle and also has a wider mouth. The base is an H-shaped bottom which adds the extra volume, and still allows it to fit into the vest pockets perfectly.

I think you get what you pay for with bottles. Just like the original, the Plus is made with strong yet flexible seams, which yeah is going to cost a little more. I dropped mine last week on a run then it tumbled down the rocky trail and through some gnarly bushes, with not a scratch on it in the end. The warranty on these is also fantastic, should anything ever happen to it. Happy running!
