EASY TO CARRY, EASY TO TAKE ON BOARD

Easy to open packaging, just rip the top off.
Smooth liqidy gel slides down like a drink. No sweet sticky after taste or gummy fingers to wipe on your vest either
No major probs to mention. Orange and Blackcurrant flavours are okay but Tropical wins hands down for me. You will need to carry more than thicker gels to pack the same amount of carbs.
Even better when carried in SIS's own gel waist band/holder you don't even know you've got them around your waist.

MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE

Easy to open and store in bum bag. I was warned that you get a bit of a horrible taste and you should wash them down with water, but I never had any problems. Quite nice in fact
Not too keen on the tropical flavour, but that's a matter of taste.
First year running properly, I had Snowdonia marathon coming up and a friend advised me to use gel packs, I had never heard of them before. I got two, the blackcurrant and the tropical, took them at 13 and 19 mile marks, what a difference they made. I just wished I knew about them when I was doing my training runs.

SMOOTH AND TASTY, MANY A MARATHON WITHOUT HITTING THE WALL!

Easy on the stomach and not thick and gloopy in the mouth either. You don't need very much water with them.
Sometimes they can be a bit lumpy - maybe a temperature issue? Packets sometimes tricky to open causing sticky spillage!
They're perfect for long runs and I'd feel wrong now if I tried a marathon without a belt (SIS make one that fits these) of 5 gels to see me comfortably round. They seem to kick in pretty quickly too.
