How can you use one of these and get down anything resembling a steep hill or drop? You can't get behind the saddle... sounds like a recipe for going over the bars.

I can see the use on a road bike-- very common for time trials etc. Even on a hybrid / city bike, no problem there. But a MTB?

Hydration packs are hot in the summer, no argument there. Mine is a pile of sweat after any ride warmer than 60F. If I couldn't wear it, I'd have one or two bottles on my frame and if I needed more water than that I'd first look at bar-mounted bottle cages. They aren't great, but they're better than an endo.
