Hydrapak's UltraFlasks™ are designed to conform to the shape of your body, compressing as you drink. This means reduced sloshing and bouncing, less spillage and an easier time sucking out that Tailwind goodness.

The flexibility of the soft flask means it can fit into your existing gear: successfully tested with Ultimate DIrection, Salomon and Nathan vests.

Featuring:

  • Clear Plastic - no more guesswork towards the amount of Tailwind left
  • Collapsible - Perfect bottle to use on multi-stage events or international events, it's only as large as the Tailwind being carried
  • Lightweight - weighing in at just 38g once emptied the flask is light as a feather
  • Pliable - Conforms to any shape, be it your hand, belt or high-tech vest

Dimensions: The hard plastic top of the flask measures in at 8.5 x 6.5cm wide and stands 7cm with the rest of the flask being able to collapse in to the hard top when empty.

Holds up to 500ml

Great quality but perhaps not quite the right shape
Wednesday, 29 August 2018  | 

I bought a couple of these flasks to supplement two other brand ones which I have for my running vest. They were actually bought specifically for an ultra marathon I was doing so that I could put dry Tailwind in them, compress in my vest pocket, and then fill up with water at an aid station.

That bit all worked brilliantly. The dry powder in the flasks compressed down very well. I used my two original flasks to begin with then compressed the empty ones and stuck in my vest when I switched to the Tailwind ones...

The issue though is the shape. They are wider than my others and it was a real struggle to get them into the chest pockets of my Salomon vest. They went in eventually.

The solution might be to put the bottles in the vest pockets before adding water... but that could be messy, and means taking the vest off.

Anyway, shape aside, these are great quality Hydrapak made flasks. They work excellently by compressing as you drink. I'd buy again.

I carried this for 17miles today and it didn't annoy me! I usually use a belt with small bottles but was looking to try something new. It held well in my hand, didn't impede my arm at all. Love the ease of the spout and no sloshing! Just perfect.

Best Soft Flask i have used
Friday, 15 June 2018  | 

I was looking for an alternative to what i was already using. Mainly because when you get to a check point after many miles you dont want to mess with a fiddly, hard to open top. These are wide brimmed and great for pouring your sachet in and then water. no spills or fuss.

Great quality and design however cross compatibility and comfort with other branded hydration vests is not guaranteed.

Great bottle. Wide top for easy addition of stick packs and fits really nicely into Ultimate Direction PB front pocket.

Bought this recently and used it in the last two weeks in both Paris and London marathons - having used tailwind in my training runs - i didnít want to use any other gels on the big days so purchased the soft bottle which I carried in both marathons! I made the tailwind into a concentrate and took it before I hit a water stop and then took the water on top of it - no probs with any leaks and was easy to use during the runs ie no sweaty hands trying to open a gel packet - would definitely recommend - maybe a holder of some sorts would help but I didnít have an issue carrying it

I have been using various soft flasks for some years now and love the ones from Tailwind. The somewhat larger diameter makes it snug in my Salomon S-lab vest and the super size cap makes for easy refilling and cleaning.
Will exchange all my soft flasks to Tailwind Nutrition 500ml going forward.

Bottle design helps during re-fill
Monday, 26 March 2018  | 

These bottles are far better designed than my old Ultimate Direction ones. The extended neck and threads on the screw on lid make them easier to open and close while out on a run. Great product and looks the part with the Tailwind branding on it also.

My new favourite bottles
Saturday, 10 February 2018  | 

Love these bottles - seem to rectify all the issues I had with others I've used: the wide top means I don't spill half my tailwind powder on the floor; the caps screw on tight meaning the caps don't leak; the material is strong enough that they don't suddenly spring a leak between the top/side half way through a run. So far, no down sides.
