It works for me

The quality of this item is very good. The bottle stays in the holster when running. I ran 8.5 miles with it the other day, no problems with bottle slippage. It does bounce a little, but what wouldn't? It took me about a mile or two to get used to it and stop thinking about it. For me at least (a woman who is pretty straight through the waist and hip area), there isn't a really natural place for it to sit, so I'm still messing with it a little. I have an LG Optimus phone with full case and it fits fine in the pocket with room to spare. There is a hook for a key, which is a nice feature because then I don't have to worry about the house/car key flying out when I take other things in or out of the pocket. The shape of the belt is nice and conforms to the small of the back/sacrum area. I would say, to anyone reading this, that in my opinion this solution is better suited to gliding runners than bounding runners. If you have a lot of spring in your stride, you may find it bounces too much. The one star I docked is because the straps loosen over the course of the run - not much, but enough so that I am frequently tightening them back up. Eventually I may figure out a way to knot the ends around the strap so they don't loosen. Overall I am happy with this item.
