There was a thread on this on an ultra mailing list I'm on. The end result was a suggestion to order both and give them a try. I personally like the idea of the bottles on the chest but the placement probably wouldn't work for me because they'd be right on top of my boobs. Might not be a problem in your case ;-)
You can't slide the water bottle holders up and down from what I can tell.
One excellent point that was made about the bottles is that they are easier to monitor your intake than a bladder.
If you decide to get one, let me know what you think.
I'm also female, so definitely a point of concern. I read one review from a female who loved it, said not an issue. For her. More data points would be lovely, but I'm not the patient type...
I'm contemplating trying my 1st ultra. Even if my knees won't hold up for that abuse, I could still use it on my daily dog trail runs. I like the visibility and quick-fill features of the bottles. I'll let you know my thoughts if I get one.
