I hate the revolution bags... smaller water bottles fall right through the cheap-#$*&$! bottoms of their bottle holders.. its really frustrating at times. Plus I like to carry random things in the cupholders, maybe a bag of sunflower seeds, or a bag tag or something, y'know?
They're almost pointless with those cheapo bottoms.
I apprectiate the design because it allows liquid spillage to flow to the ground instead of creating a sticky mess in the bottom. Put your other crap in the pockets! I mean c'mon, you are going to rag that hard on a company because you don't like the drink holder?
Personally, I think all drink holders are poorly placed to balance the bag. Chances are a 32 oz drink is the heaviest single thing in your bag. Does it make any sense to put the heaviest thing out to the furthest edge of the bag with the least inherent support? If I have a 32oz bottle I put it in the pocket, close to the center. Usually though I just carry several 20oz bottles so I can balance them better.
