Ultimate Direction Fastdraw 10 ultimate direction


If you’re looking for a bottle for your shorter runs, look no further. Ultimate Direction’s Fastdraw 10 carries 10oz of fluid and fits perfectly into your paw. There’s an adjustable hand strap and a pocket with just enough room for keys and a credit card, alongside a lid that you can pop shut with your thumb. Good things do, indeed, come in small packages.

Like John Stewart and steak for breakfast, Nathan is massive in the States but more of a niche concern in the UK. This has to change. The Nathan Speed Draw Plus Bottle is another perfectly designed product from a company committed to quality. An adjustable hand with a thumbhole allows for grip-free running, while there’s a pocket that can accommodate keys, a credit and mobile phone. Simply one of the best bottles in the business.
