Camelbak Arc Quick Grip Review Facts
Watch Video Review

The Camelbak Arc Quick Grip Bottle is the perfect compact hydration solution for short races or training runs. This little bottle is equally well suited to those who run routes with multiple opportunities for refilling. Minimalist runners can ensure they have water on their runs without adding too much extra weight to their bodies. Not everyone is comfortable wearing a belt or waist pack, and not all runners require large amounts of water on their runs. A small bottle like the Camelbak Arc Quick Grip Bottle is the perfect piece of equipment for hydrating on a 10K run. There’s no need to grip the bottle, either, since it comes with a comfortable hand strap for carrying and a small pocket to store some change or your keys.

Use

The Camelbak Arc Quick Grip Bottle is designed for running and is appropriate for shorter training runs or races. You get a 10-ounce bottle and a carrying strap. The hand strap features a zippered compartment for storing fuel or other little items you might need. The bottle also features TruTaste technology, which prevents water from taking on any plasticky taste. It's also BPA-free. The 10-ounce bottle also features a LeakProof valve that opens with a twist.

Reviewers liked the easy to use valve design of the bottle, but some noted that it was difficult to extricate the bottle from its sleeve, which was a pain when it came time to wash it. Otherwise, most runners who purchased the Camelbak Arc Quick Grip Bottle found it a perfect choice for hydrating on short runs.

Breathability

The Camelbak Arc Quick Grip Bottle has a hand strap made of breathable fabric and a bottle valve that's LeakProof, so you won't have to worry about water seeping out while you run. The top opens and closes with a twist of the valve for easy access. A handful of reviewers had issues with leaks, however, and complained that the bottle didn't seal properly. Most, though, were impressed with the strong seal of the bottle's valve. Reviewers also found the hand strap comfortable, saying it wicked sweat fairly well. One reviewer pointed out that exposure to sweat seemed to cause the strap to lose its elasticity, though.

Comfort

The Camelbak Arc Quick Grip Bottle features a curved design that creates an ergonomic feel when held in hand. Reviewers found the strap and the bottle were sized appropriately for a comfortable grip. Reviewers also found the strap's fabric to feel comfortable against the skin. Very few found the need to adjust the strap during their runs and liked that the strap allowed them to relax their grip and avoid expending extra energy just trying to carry water. The bottle also squeezes easily so getting water from the vessel is pretty effortless.
Size
Size

Size

The Camelbak Arc Quick Grip Bottle is one-size-fits-all. The strap is adjustable and most found the size worked for them. Together, the bottle and strap weigh just 1 ounce. The bottle holds 10 ounces, which is not a whole lot of water but enough for shorter runs. For storage, a single zippered pocket plus a small non-zippered foldover pouch can be found on the hand strap. It should be noted that the majority of phones won't fit inside the strap pocket. Reviewers found the bottle was big enough for shorter runs but many found the pocket a bit too small for their needs.

Durability

The Camelbak Arc Quick Grip Bottle comes backed by a Lifetime Guarantee, which is quite impressive. Reviewers didn't seem to need to fall back on this guarantee, though, since no one discovered any quality control issues. A few reviewers did remark that over time exposure to sweat and moisture caused the strap to lose some of its elasticity.

The cap is dishwasher safe, and the bottle seems to be also. The Camelbak Arc Quick Grip Bottle is a nice piece of gear that should hold up to vigorous use. The hand strap is made of thick nylon and mesh fabric that's also resistant to wear and tear.

Bottom Line

It's hard to doubt a product that comes backed by some Lifetime Guarantee. The Camelbak Arc Quick Grip Bottle is a quality piece of gear that's perfect for those who want a small hydration solution, that's ultra-portable and easy to use. A quick squeeze of the bottle gets water to your mouth fast, and the hand strap makes it easy to forget you're even carrying that 10-ounce bottle at all.

Out of pocket room? A small zippered pocket provides room for those pesky house keys. Afraid you'll be tempted to grip the bottle and find yourself covered in Gatorade? The valve on the bottle is easy to operate and prevents water or fluid from seeping out thanks to a LeakProof design. The Camelbak Arc Quick Grip Bottle is an excellent handheld hydration option for those keeping their runs short or for long distance runners who prefer a lighter solution for weekday 5 and 10Ks.
