It is ok
I like the soft flask concept. The handle is great in that it is separate from the sleeve. I like the sleeve in that it is more comfortable to hold the bottle when my hands get sweaty. But the sleeve is a struggle to get off and especially difficult to get on. You cannot fill the bottle full with the sleeve on since it compresses the bottle. You can carry it without the sleeve. I got it on sale at a pretty good discount. Otherwise I would have likely given it 1 star. Looks like they changed the design of the sleeve on the subsequent model. Also the flat bottom would be easier for filling.
