The ultimate way to carry a water bottle.
I've had two of the original jurek bands and bottles with the kicker valve, those were perfect.
This bottle isn't round, so to get a squeeze on it you have to twist it so you aren't pressing on the finger grooves.
The valve is much tougher to open, once you squeeze water out you get a strong spray. The old kicker valve you could either suck on the valve for a small amount of water, or squeeze for a big chug, that control is gone now.
How do I get one of the old ones :( FM on Jun 15th 2017
I've no idea why UD abandoned the proven kicker valve for this thing. One assumes it's slightly cheaper to produce, because it is obviously inferior to the previous design. The form factor is also awkward and uncomfortable, but that's a less objective quality. I tossed this thing in the recycling. Stick with kicker valve bottles for as long as you can find them.

Gear is fun to try, but some gear is better than other gear. We don't know for ourselves until we try it for ourselves. However, my advice is to skip this bottle. Two reasons I dislike the design. First, the red nozzle tip. I feel like they were trying to make drinking on the run easier and limit leaks, but I don't like having squeeze the crap out of bottle to drink nor the way the fluid sprays out in a small jet. Second, the band holding the strap on the bottom of the bottle is too elastic. When running with a full bottle of fluid the band slides up and down on the bottle. This makes the fit feel sloppy. There are better hand held out there, skip this one. TrailRat 831 on May 10th 2017
I'm glad UD did not discontinue the Jurek Grip altogether. I'm uncertain what needed to be improved. Guess I'll have to get used to version 2.0.
The original was perfect. Could easily swap out bottles without removing the cap and even worked with non UD bottles.
Keep it simple UD... it's a bottle with a strap. Michael on Mar 7th 2017
If you removed a single thing from this handheld, there wouldn't be anything left! Bare-bones minimalism and simplicity, ergonomically shaped handle, adjustable hand strap, excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail for the discerning runner. Guy Gordon on Jan 22nd 2017
