    This is the most comfortable handheld I’ve ever used. I thought the ISO VERSA was comfortable (and it is!) but this takes ergonomic ease to a whole new level. You will quickly forget you have anything in your hand. The pocket is just enough storage for a gel, emergency TP, some tabs and even your phone if you are so inclined. Highly recommended!

    Because I like the Ultra Flask 550 hydration bottle so well, I decided to give this newest addition to the UltraSpire product line a try. The slim profile of the bottle brings the center of mass of the bottle closer to the body and the wide dual adjustment strap combine to make this an extremely comfortable handheld to carry. Perhaps because of my particular anatomy, I struggled a bit to come to terms with the actual drinking from this handheld, and it took me a while to get used to it. To my engineering mind the bottle valve is turned almost 90 degrees away from the mouth as compared to the my old favorite, the Iso Versa Pocket handheld, but that issue was easily resolved once I learned to slip my thumb free around the neck of the bottle and the entire assembly could now easily pivot in my hand to access the final drops of liquid. One beauty of Ultra 550 is that it can be carried in three different ways which is an advantage during a 4 to 5 hour or longer outing. The pocket is a bit tight, but I usually only use a handheld pocket for very light items (maybe a gel, TP, hanky, etc.) so the tightness has the advantage of keeping items secure.

    This is a fantastic handheld. It’s very comfortable to carry and keeps my hands free from fatigue because you don’t need to “hold” the bottle really. I cinch up the straps and the bottle stays put nicely without me needing to squeeze it at all. I would have to agree with Bartman as far it being slightly awkward to drink from. I haven’t completely gotten used to it yet. Although, I do prefer it to my standard handheld because it is so comfortable to carry. My wife likes it too.

    I LOVE this product. The bottle is easy to grasp and use. Indeed, as the previous reviewers stated, you really don’t have to “hold” (or grasp) the bottle at all. The straps, once properly fitted to your hand, allow it to hang from your hand. The bottle, even when full with fluid, is light. I almost forget I’m carrying one, even on the longest long runs. I now run with two bottles–one in each hand–as I consume a lot of water when I run. As an aside, I have no difficulty drinking from the bottle. I’ve never liked hand-held bottles until I stumbled across the 550. Get it!

    I’ve ran with it a few times. I love it so far since the water flows easily, and it opens/closes easily too. I’d carry this for racing, or somewhere I can refill every 6-8 miles. I had no idea I was holding it the “wrong” way but I found that the way they suggest for you to hold it makes it point downwards which makes me more paranoid about my key falling out. The way I was originally holding it, keeps the bottle up right and I still feel like i’m not holding it since the straps keep it securely strapped and my key from moving around. Aside from that, its a great product!

    The best handheld I have used! I am a huge fan of the pistol grip option. I was initially concerned about how secure my phone would be in the pocket but I was pleasantly surprised. Even during intervals, it was super snug.

    Best handheld I’ve ever owned and I had a bunch of them. The thing I love the most is that it’s compatible with my Ultraspire Revolt vest!
