Finally had the time to test the ROC Bottle Holster and here’s a little review.

Pros
- holds and fits most Nalgene type bottles securely
- weight is light enough to be unnoticeable
- straps and buckles are strong and reliable

Cons
- with the open sides, possibilities of puncture may happen
- May think of including 1 extra elastic for securing, the loss elasticity quickly
- If you’re looking for a stealth look, bottles are too visable

The following is my synopsis on the ROC Bottle Holster
  • Appearance - for the first time user, the does not have the traditional bottle holder shape so it could easy fool you. The design behind it is well thought out being simplistic yet very functional. When you’re not using it, it is small and doesn’t flop around or get in the way. Nice and compact.
  • Material - I found no issues with the material. Straps and buckles are reliable and rugged and can withstand all uses.
  • Quality - Absolutely no complaints about the quality or its durability.
  • Functionality - the purpose or function of the Bottle Holster is to do that, holster your bottle securely and it does exactly that. While walking you cannot feel it moving around from side to side and holds firm into your pack. Access to the bottle is easy.
  • Recommended changes - include q extra elastic as they lose elasticity easy and would require change. Have an option for a thermal insert for cold weather applications.

Do you mean it can be easily hit by other things as most of the bottle is exposed outside?

Good idea. Where do you think it's a good place to add this elastic cord?

Have an option for a thermal insert for cold weather applications.
To make an adjustable thermal bag to put the bottle in and then carry it? Any practical solution for it?

It would be more cost and user friendly to just make a thermal bottle holder and swap them out for the season in use.
