I pack this with me on longer drives, or if I'm going to the trail head and want cold water when I get back or to refill my smaller Hydro Flask. The straw helps if I want to drink directly from the bottle. The only downfall with this and the 32oz is that obviously, it won't fit in a cup holder.
I almost own one of every type of Hydro Flask. These things are amazing. We wanted something larger than the 21oz but not the big 40oz. This was perfect. The straw helps too, especially while driving to control those random spills from such a wide mouth opening.
I put this on my front replacing a high roller. I've noticed that I can corner this tire with more control than my high roller. Doesn't roll as long/fast as you would suspect, but the control and traction are much better in different types of conditions.
I replaced my high roller with this on my rear tire. So far I've like this tire, it does not roll as fast as the high roller. I notice I don't have as much carrying speed. But the grip and control are solid.
If I need more pieces of gear, don't want my phone in my pocket or extra water (+ what's on my cage) then I take this lil pack. Gloves, snacks, phone, tube, tools etc. it can pack it. feels pretty good on the rowdy downs if you synch it tight.
I'll agree that sometimes the patch doesn't hold, and that is frustrating. Often there will be a wrinkle in the patch. But, 90% of the time though these patches have held and worked for me. I've had a couple of tubes that had a couple of these patches and they lasted a whole season. Small and easy to carry.
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Doesn't quite fit in my seat bag for a local short single track. If I break it down then I can put it in my seat bag with a patch kit, but no tube. It's a nice upgrade from my last CO2 pump. Good concept though. I have the Innovations Secondwind Road Aluminum Mini CO2 Inflator that I've used for years and is great to have the option to inflate manually if needed. I wanted something smaller and easier to carry on a trail with no pack.
