3" x 8.75"
8.45oz / 249.89 mL / 7.25 servings of Hammer Gel
This HydraPak soft flask holds 8.5 oz, is top rack dishwasher safe, and has a No-Leak™ Guarantee.
Great size to carry sports drink for long distance runs. I usually make it concentrated and pair it with water from my pack.
Multiple servings, easy to use on the bike
Love this soft flask. Able to carry multiple servings and mixed with hot water, my Montana Huckleberry gel is less likely to freeze in extreme temps. Helps to keep the flask close to your body.
Easy way to take more gel on ride/runs
What I love about this is that I can take along more gel on longer workouts/races. Rather than have to take 2 flasks, just one of these holds enough gel to last my longest times on a run or bike. I always thin my gel with 1 part water to 2 parts gel. This gives a better consistency in the mouth making it easier to swallow and not leave a lot of after taste in the mouth, which I dont like when racing. Since I thin my gels, this works perfect (and stores better in a jersey pocket). If you dont thin gel, it may work only as well as a flask--which in cold weather is not real well. In fact, I expect this will work better in winter than a flask since its easier to squeeze product out. The bite valve has yet to leak in my pocket or ***** Running band. I was pleasantly surprised at that--I figured it was the weak point of the design. Not so.
Ignore the negative review. Softflasks are awesome! I wish Hammer stocked a few more of the variety of sizes that are made. They are super light and pack up small when empty. Don't use straight gel, make a 4:1 mix of gel and hot water then squish it around until it mixes. The soft flask fits into a running vest pocket or even into the velcro pocket of the RaceReady Hammer running shorts.
