Not every run is an expedition. The Quick Grip Chill lets you move light and fast, but holds enough water for a substantial 5 - 10 mile run. CamelBak also added a zippered pouch with just enough room for the three true essentials: keys, card and phone. The extra stretch mesh pouch expands to fit an energy gel or two, and the velvetex-lined strap won't chafe your hands over the long haul. And as always, the insulated Podium bottle keeps your drink cold from start to finish. Other features include reflectivity, a key clip and an adjustable cinch strap for a secure carry. The Podium bottle features patented Jet Valve technology with a lockout dial for leak-proof transport.

My very favorite water bottle! Keeps my water cold for hours. I love the handle on it. I like how I can size it, make it tight on my hand. Really helps when jogging with it. The pouch is too small for my iPhone 6 Plus or the iPhone 6 for that matter. I use the pouch for a couple of Kleenex and a chap stick - maybe car keys.
Pros: -Incredibly easy and convenient top that does not require opening and closing but also does not spill the water if the bottle is turned upside-down (requires some pressure from your mouth) -Nice pouch size that fits my iPhone 6 and 2 GUs (I could probably get in more, but I haven't had the need)
Neutral: -I feel conflicted about the bottle size. It is larger than my previous running bottle and is certainly a noticeable weight and is tall enough for the water to slosh a lot when it's no longer full. At the same time, it is a large enough size to get me through a 15 mile run.
Cons: -Handle is made of a rougher materials than it ought to be. To put this in context, however, I did a 20 mile run with this and did not get any chafing from it as other reviews have claimed. I think the key here is to tighten it enough that the handle is not able to move back and forth over your knuckles. Would I prefer a more luxurious material? Absolutely. Is...
I love almost everything about this bottle. It's insulated so it can keep water cool (or at least not hot) during hot summer runs and the pouch is helpful for carrying fuel or a cell phone (iphone 6 is a tight fit, but it works). No push/pull open, just tilt upside down and squeeze. Unless you're trying to drink from it, water doesn't come out. Far preferable to having to open and close a bottle every time you want to use it.
The only reason I give it 4 instead of 5 stars is the top. The sides are smooth which gives you nowhere to grip to help unscrew. For everyday use it's not difficult to remove, but from experience I can tell you that when you're running an ultramarathon in the summer and you have nothing non-sweaty to help grip, that thing is impossible to remove. Just a groove or two for grip would be awesome. I kept having to have aid station workers remove it for me.
If I could give it 4.5 stars I would. It's a great bottle. If you're not a crazy person...
