Have it, tried it, never use it.
The magnet isn't strong enough to hold stiff source tactical hoses snug to the curve of my shoulder strap.

Just use a grimlock, carabiner, or bungee tie and accept that the rest of the hose will stick out a bit. The stiff hoses generally stay out of the way anyhow.

Hi James, thanks for your feedback, just one remark from our developers: the Magnetic Clip is designed to hold the drinking valve in place, to provide easy one-hand access whenever you want a sip, no dealing with clips and hooks and stuff. It's not designed for the routing of the drinking tube itself from the pack forward.

Tres utile !!
Très utile pour garder le tuyau toujours à portée de main sans qu'il ne soit gênant dans les mouvements, dans la marche. Part contre attention de ne pas perdre le clip .. déjà perdu une fois ...

As JT states above here, once you get it modified it's really great for your backpack, keeping the tube in place. The plastic inside the clip that goes on the tube is quite easy to work with. I used a small round file and after 5 minutes it fit just snuggly. Easily the best accessory for my Source WXP 3L!

I agree... it definitely wasn't made for the cloth covered tubes. I'm going to try to mod mine too.

Though one of the product photos suggests otherwise, this acccessory doesn't work that well with the cloth-covered hydration tubes. The cloth coverings add diameter to the tube making it a bit too thick for the clip-on piece. You *can* get it onto the tube, but it pinches it significantly and doesn't appear to fit right. I suppose this piece was originally designed for the bare, civilian style tubes. Rather than return it however (which wouldn't have been cost effective), I took a dremel tool and opened up the diameter of the tube clip piece. Now it fits great without crimping the tube. As for the strap clip, there's really nothing wrong with it; it'll work with the 3/4" or 1" straps. I mounted mine towards the bottom of my left shoulder strap, and now there is no slack in the last section of drinking tube. After you're done drinking, you just sort of toss the tube back to its side and the magnet is strong enough to grab it for you - it's awesome. If I didn't have to modify the part, I would easily have given this 5 stars. Though considering the great concept, and low price, I can't give it less than 4. After a bit of modification, this is a fantastic accessory.
