Thanks to Castleberg Outdoors I got the opportunity to test Nathan`s Quickdraw Elite Bottle. I have few other Nathan products which are really ergonomic and useful during my runs.

The product sits on your hand comfortably. the mesh designed hand strap is both adjustable by putting your thumbnail inside to its special positioning style. So this way it does not bounce and you fell the bottle on your hand. At the same time you don not need to hold the bottle so firm that your hand will not get wet due to sweating. The same grabbing is also featured in other Nathan bottle that i have. You can read it`s test from here.
Small things make the runners life easier. Nathan is a compnay that things these small tips and tricks during the runs. The pocket that is embedded to the bottle has a key ring and a small compartment for a small mobile phone ( Not Smart Phones) or couple of gels, credit cards, money. Rather than the zipped compartment you can add two GU type Gels in to the front compartment which is elastic mesh pocket.
Another important feature is the ID Card attached to the bottle. This is helpful in case of any non desired situation so that people can reach your relatives. This is a very good and cool feature and i am sure that nathan is adding this to their product range.
I like Nathan products and have at least 4-5 different valuable products that i use. Handheld bottles are one of these. I strongly recommend you to try some of their products and buy when you need.
