I know the reviews say the bottles rub on your bum but it can be bent a bit to angle the cages.

I've used the one OP linked to, on vintage racing saddles. The thing is finicky to install perfectly, I think it would be a problem fit on many saddles. Just be sure you can send it back. It's benefit is you can still stow a small bag, mini, , below the saddle.

Is it solid, stable for long hard ride? Yep.

Sadly I have skin issues so I have to wear loose clothes and wearing a camelback is out of the question until the weather cools down.

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.

I have a bottle cage mounted at the base of my proflex seatpost at the back and my over riding impression is that it is covenient but it gets covered in mud and you have to use a bottle with a lid cover.
