Been running my BTA bottle on a XLab Kompact gizmo for a few months and all is well because I've been using bottles that have internal closed valves ( like the Podium type of thing).

It's just dawned on me that for IM I will be grabbing water bottles at aid stations that are probably the cheap Powerbar type. This will mean either have loads of water splashing over me, or shut the valve after each swig.

What do you guys do in this situation?

Shut the valve after each swig. Just tap it against my chest.

Although I've been using a Torhans Aero 30 this year.

Same thing, just whack it on the chest like a gorilla. Added bonus of feeling really manly in the process.
