This item is too big to carry on a pocket for run, i was needing a smaler flask for run.
What I love about this is that I can take along more gel on longer workouts/races. Rather than have to take 2 flasks, just one of these holds enough gel to last my longest times on a run or bike. I always thin my gel with 1 part water to 2 parts gel. This gives a better consistency in the mouth making it easier to swallow and not leave a lot of after taste in the mouth, which I dont like when racing. Since I thin my gels, this works perfect (and stores better in a jersey pocket). If you dont thin gel, it may work only as well as a flask--which in cold weather is not real well. In fact, I expect this will work better in winter than a flask since its easier to squeeze product out. The bite valve has yet to leak in my pocket or Naked Running band. I was pleasantly surprised at that--I figured it was the weak point of the design. Not so.
Ignore the negative review. Softflasks are awesome! I wish Hammer stocked a few more of the variety of sizes that are made. They are super light and pack up small when empty. Don't use straight gel, make a 4:1 mix of gel and hot water then squish it around until it mixes. The soft flask fits into a running vest pocket or even into the velcro pocket of the RaceReady Hammer running shorts.
