Great flask
Monday, 7 August 2017  | 

Bought as an extra to go with my UD vest. Although ultimately made by the same company the Tailwind flask feels better quality. The cap screws on better than the UD flasks and they work really well.

Exactly what I needed
Monday, 31 July 2017  | 

After finding that the Salomon soft flasks flop about in the pockets of my UD vest, I decided to check these out. They're a much better fit even when full, and collapse down incredibly well. The wide neck is an added bonus.

Better than Salomon soft flask
Saturday, 13 May 2017  | 

Yes it does fit in Salomon vest pockets; yes it'd wider neck makes if much easier and quicker to fill; yes it doesn't stick out over the top of the vest pocket and so flap about.

The only disadvantage is the wider top made of hard plastic is less comfortable on your upper rib when full. After about 10k, it felt as if a bruise was appearing. However, as soon as I took a few sips from it, this subsided and it became equally as comfortable as the Salomon flask I had in the other side as a comparison. Remedies, it seems could include not filling it so full; starting to drink from it a little sooner; or even padding it out at the start with a buff.

I think the advantages outweigh this one disadvantage. Over a marathon distance training run this morning, it was only those first 10k it was uncomfortable for (well, about 4-10k, really). Compared to foot and leg pain it's nothing anyway!

Best running water bottle ever!
Wednesday, 10 May 2017  | 

I like to stay hydrated while running but I have always found carrying water bottles such a pain as they are awkward to hold and the water sloshes around.

I bougbt this one for a 10k race at the weekend and it was absolutely amazing! Comfortable and light to hold, no sloshing around, easy to drink from and no spillage.

I will be using it for every run from now on and I know what all my running friends will be getting from me for their birthdays this year!!

I have made two purchases from this website and both times the service has been brilliant - next day delivery with a personalised card.

Couldn't recommend more highly!

Handy bottle
Tuesday, 2 May 2017  | 

I used the Tailwind 500ml Soft Flask for the first time on a long run yesterday to supplement my hydration pack. It is a very handy bottle - a good size when filled but it packs down pretty small when not full. It's actually really cool the way it changes size so flexibly although it feels slightly weird to hold when full. I envisage using it in long races when I might want a burst of Tailwind late on but don't want to carry a bulky bottle. It is very easy to fill and mix in and the bite valve works well.

Saturday, 18 February 2017  | 

I bought this flask to replace an old Salomon soft flask that had developed a leak. The small neck of the Salomon had made refilling with Tailwind very difficult, especially when racing. I purchased this flask as it looked to have a much wider opening. I was concerned that the shorter and wider body might mean that it wouldn't fit in my old Salomon hydration pack, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it does fit very nicely. It is a bit more snug, but the shorter height means it feels more stable and less likely to bounce out. Overall I'm very happy with it and will be buying another one soon to replace my other Salomon flask. Also very impressed with the fast and friendly service. Many thanks

I bought two of these. They fit perfectly into my UD pack and actually drop in a little more easily than the ones provided by UD. The lids also thread on more easily than the UD equivalent which will be a great help at race checkpoints when my hands often don't work too well! They have a decent sized opening ideal for pouring in tailwind and refilling. No leaks so far. Very pleased!

Monday, 19 December 2016  | 

I went for these soft flasks after struggling with Inov8 soft flasks in previous Ultra races. I found the narrow neck made it hard to get the Tailwind sachets into and slowing me down at aid stations. The new flasks have a much wider neck and are so easy to fill on the go. Perhaps a hand strap would be a useful addition? The flasks feel really high quality and I'm sure they'll last ages. As usual the customer service is faultless too.

Wednesday, 2 November 2016  | 

At some point in time all the soft flasks that I have used start to leak. Time for a replacement bottle, so I got this one in time for last weeks Dusk til Dawn Ultra. Good stuff; the wide neck makes it so much easier and quicker to refill, especially when pouring powder in. That is a big plus when you are in a hurry and tiredness tests your patience. Unscrewing the bigger lid is also easier with cold hands. Not so good; not a niggle, but as the bottle is shorter and wider than my Salomon ones, the fit into my s-lab vest bottle pocket is a little tight. However it worked just fine. I blow some air in to make the bottle stiffer and it goes into the mesh pocket easier. I had no problems with several refills during the night race, so no worries about recommending it.

I really liked the hard neck on the bottle, unlike other soft bottles that are soft topped, this bottle stays in place better and is easier to hold when filling up. The wide opening is better for re filling mid run. My only gripe, and it's not really a gripe is that the bottle could have been bigger. Overall though, it's my new favourite soft bottle.

I ordered these flasks in time for the Autumn 100. Previous flasks I had were difficult to unscrew tops and therefore an unwanted faff at race CP's. These Tailwind flasks presented no problems at all. A nice compact size, no leakage and ease of use all day. I recommend!

Moreover, a quick delivery and friendly note from Mike topped off the quality of service received. Thank you!

Been on the lookout for one or these after using a few similar ones previously. Easy to use, even easier to store and takes up minimum room in my vest. My only gripe is although it's a wide opening on it, it could be slightly bigger which would make putting the tailwind into it easier when using the scoop. Widen the mouth on it and it gets 5 stars.

The Tailwind soft flask is an excellent addition to the Tailwind product range, it is robust, a good size and has a good wide opening which allows you to easily pour stick packs into it when out on the trails and during races.
As always this item was delivered in double quick time along with more stick packs I had ordered from the Tailwind team maintaining their exceptional custom service.

Monday, 15 August 2016  | 

I much prefer soft flasks to hard water bottles and these were perfect for my latest running event, the 20 mile Roseland August Trail (aka red RAT). It was a super hot day so hydration and salt/electrolyte replenishment was paramount. I took Tailwind stick packs and the flasks were easy to fill. Andy & Mike from Tailwind were at the race event HQ with flavours to try. I also really liked the top tip of making up a Tailwind concentrate solution in a small bottle to take with you if you have bought a multi-serving pack. Just add to your soft flask, top up with water and go. Genius!

Not so good; not a niggle, but as the bottle is shorter and wider than my Salomon ones, the fit into my s-lab vest bottle pocket is a little tight. However it worked just fine. I blow some air in to make the bottle stiffer and it goes into the mesh pocket easier. I had no problems with several refills during the night race, so no worries about recommending it.

I really liked the hard neck on the bottle, unlike other soft bottles that are soft topped, this bottle stays in place better and is easier to hold when filling up. The wide opening is better for re filling mid run. My only gripe, and it's not really a gripe is that the bottle could have been bigger. Overall though, it's my new favourite soft bottle.

Really nice bottle. Easy on fill, easy to hold, very clever valve. Then when empty, squashes down to nearly nothing.

Absolutely superb product, much improved compared to the old hard flasks. Easy to handle, easy to drink from and they fit into the UD racevest pockets perfectly. I found the 500ml size perfect for the dilution of 1stick pack (200cal). Service and delivery was impeccable - as always! Thanks Mike

I ordered these flasks in time for the Autumn 100. Previous flasks I had were difficult to unscrew tops and therefore an unwanted faff at race CP's. These Tailwind flasks presented no problems at all. A nice compact size, no leakage and ease of use all day. I recommend!

Moreover, a quick delivery and friendly note from Mike topped off the quality of service received. Thank you!

This is a great flask. Just the right size too. It feels well made and sturdy even though the material is surprisingly thin. My only (and very minor) gripe is that I'd like the top end of the flask to be soft too. But that's just a personal preference thing. I'll be using this flask a lot!

Great item and very portable for those long runs. No leakage and even more beneficial that as the fluid goes the flask collapses completely for easy carriage. Cleaning is simple also. Great job

You can't have too many waterbottles and flasks. This one does the job as good as any. Seems robust around the neck so foresee this being a good thing.

Been on the lookout for one or these after using a few similar ones previously. Easy to use, even easier to store and takes up minimum room in my vest. My only gripe is although it's a wide opening on it, it could be slightly bigger which would make putting the tailwind into it easier when using the scoop. Widen the mouth on it and it gets 5 stars.

The Tailwind soft flask is an excellent addition to the Tailwind product range, it is robust, a good size and has a good wide opening which allows you to easily pour stick packs into it when out on the trails and during races.
As always this item was delivered in double quick time along with more stick packs I had ordered from the Tailwind team maintaining their exceptional custom service.

Brilliant product
Monday, 15 August 2016  |  Sarah

I much prefer soft flasks to hard water bottles and these were perfect for my latest running event, the 20 mile Roseland August Trail (aka red RAT). It was a super hot day so hydration and salt/electrolyte replenishment was paramount. I took Tailwind stick packs and the flasks were easy to fill. Andy & Mike from Tailwind were at the race event HQ with flavours to try. I also really liked the top tip of making up a Tailwind concentrate solution in a small bottle to take with you if you have bought a multi-serving pack. Just add to your soft flask, top up with water and go. Genius!

Thursday, 11 August 2016  |  Colin

Being used to normal flasks this soft flask was a little weird to start off but everything about it beats a standard flask. 1. No drips from the cap. 2. 15 grams lighter (feels so much lighter). 3. Packs away so small. Also, works great with the powders.

I also got this as a free gift and it is probably one of the best freebies I have ever got! The neck is wide so you can add you TW in on the go and not make a mess. I wasn't too sure the mouthpiece would work well but it does and I have had no leaks at all! It is also super light and easy to squeeze when running. Thanks TW!
