4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant - Does the job nicely!, 27 Mar 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Xenofit Drinks Belt With 750ml Water Bottle (Sports)
This water bottle holder & bottle is a brilliant piece of kit. Such great value. I use it for running and cycling, and I'd never be without it now. The bottle also fits a standard bike-bottle holder.

The holder itself is perfect - 100%. Padded all-round, adjustable, quick- release. I adjust it off to the right, so it's not diging in to my spine as I run. Holder & bottle is slightly tilted to the right anyway, so makes it easier to pull out your bottle. Holds the bottle snug in the pouch. So don't worry, it won't ever fall out.
Two zipped compartments either side that easily holds your phone/MP3 player, keys/money (even the massive Samsung Galaxy S2 fits). Keeps your water relatively cool with the padding too. The bottle is big, holds plenty of water for long journeys.

I'm knocking off one star for 2 reasons -
1)the drinking cap on top, is a standard pull up/push down type, and is a very very tight fit. Even with the use I've given it, it's still very tight. Be prepared to use your back teeth a lot to open it. It could be just my bottle though, not saying its all them.
2) It's a pity the belt isn't slightly elasticated. It would be easier to get a good fit.
The bottle bobs back and forth against your back if the belt is not really tight.

But its well worth the money. Buy it!

EDIT - May 2012: Top cap eventually loosened. Not as hard to open the top with my teeth now. Took a while though.
As for the bottle bobbing against my back, some sticky foam at the base of the holder against my back sorted that.

Yeah, it's a tight fit with a hard case, but the s2 will fit. The iPhone will fit no bother.
