I liked the earlier version of the body bottle but the lid was tricky to screw on and one eventually leaked at the seam. The lid on the new version is much sturdier & easier to screw on, and the bottle material is thicker! Thumbs up!
It's an excellent addition to my pack, it is easy to carry and take out to pour water or electrolytes. Definitely buying another one for my pack.
The body bottle 500 is, by far the best soft bottle I've used. It has the best quality welds, with a design that minimizes their number, as well. The cap has ridges that make it easy to screw on and off. The bite valve with push-pull locking mechanism has the best flow and also the most secure lock of any bottle I've used. It might be nice to have 1 bigger size, like a 550, 600 ml and then maybe a 1 liter size for backpacking, something squat that would fit into the side pouches of the Fastpack 45.
