Love the new cap design. It is so much easier to screw on/off than the old model. During a race it is fast to refill bottles, and I don't have to mess around trying to get the cap to thread back on. Easy to get on/off even with cold fingers! The nozzle is easy to push closed, although I mostly leave it open unless I'm throwing my pack in the car.
Just ran my first 50k using these and they worked great!!
This bottle is awesome, packs down when empty and doesn’t slosh when I run. Thumbs up.
I love these bottles except for how hard it is to keep the inside of the bite valve lid clean. Mine get gross and discolored while the bottle itselfis fine. I was hoping to be able to get a replacement cap without needing to replace the whole bottle but no :(
The vulve can actually be dissemble for cleaning by force. However it'll need to be gentle for the soft silicon portion.
I love the new cap because it’s much more sturdy and easier to screw on. I can deal with the new bite valve, although I had zero problem with the previous version. My reason for the 3 stars is that it is impossible to remove the last bit of air and the bottle sloshes. I absolutely can not stand the sloshing sound. Previous versions worked for me, but I’ve wasted my money purchasing 2 replacement bottles with this version.
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.
