Notes

Weight

Hardly noticeable, the fluids weigh more.

Adjustability

Allows for changes in fluid capacity and sizing.
Comfort Wears as if it is not there.

Durability

Other than a small manufacturing issue, it has held up well.
Customer Service 

The manufacturing issue was very prompt and satisfactory.

Cosmo Factor*

The green bottles do not match much, but they work well.

Overall

LOVE IT!!

 

Strengths

Versatility of bottle configuration and size is unparalleled. A full bottle can be moved up when the others are depleted so you are not constantly reaching behind for the next drink of water.
 

Weaknesses

The holsters for the bottles can be a little tricky to get used to. I have had a few dropped bottles, but never lost one. This can be a pain, but a little extra attention when putting it back in the holster takes care of this problem most of the time.

 

Summary

I love the versatility and comfort of this hydration belt. I would buy this belt again. I have added a 10.5 oz bottle to my belt. It is a little more awkward to hold than the 8 oz bottles if you have small hands. I do like the added capacity, so they are worth it to me.
