Trail Running – Hard Water Bottles v Soft Water Bottles

I recently bought some soft water bottles for my ultra running training and future events.  I ran yesterday with the soft water bottles and found they stick out at the top a little bit but I fortunately I could hold,them down with some flexible loop ties on my Hydration vest.  I found that they felt good running with them as they mold to your body and you don’t really notice they are there.  The hard water bottles on the other hand are very noticeable.   For my upcoming ultra event the Coastal High 50 there are requirements for me to carry 2 litres of water, each bottle is 500ml so I will have two on the front of my vest and two in the back then swap them over when I need too.  I like that when the soft bottles are empty they just fold into a small bundle.  I would recommend changing from hard to soft water bottles just for the comfort reason alone.
