I pick one of these up a while ago out of curiosity and I don't think I'll buy one again. It was nice to use at first but the tubing and the bite valve got really dirty and were a pain to clean. Eventually the bite valve (mouth piece) fell off. I'll stick to other bottles. I will say that the shape is great, it fit perfect in my cup holder (which was awesome).
This water bottle is exactly as described online, including the color (charcoal for me). I have tested it and so far it is not leaking at all. It is easy to drink out of and I plan on using it every day!
This product was exactly as described online. The color is also just as pictured (Charcol for me). I have tested this water bottle and (so far) it is definitely spill proof, which is GREAT! I plan on using this water bottle every day. Thanks Moosejaw!
This is my first CamelBak product...the straw thing was hard to get used to (and I still worry that it'll give me buck teeth), but I like it. It makes me drink more water than normal. Mine leaks. I heard that I could contact CamelBak to send me a new one, but I haven't done that yet. I usually carry it in the water bottle holder of my backpack, anyway, so it doesn't matter. But if I carry it in my purse, it usually ends up on its side and then slowly leaks until all my papers are wet.
This is a solid bottle. Its durability is comparable to any of the nalgene bottles. It handily screws right on to many pump-style water filters. It does what it should, namely: holds water and stuff. My only complaint, and the reason I usually leave this guy at home is this: the 'straw with flip top' style of bottle is overly complicated to clean. Also, it's more difficult to use, since it has more parts, and the straw can be lost. These are general reasons why I primarily use a simpler bottle. There really isn't much to criticize if you're a fan of the straw-style bottle. Helpful hint! Clean these out with denture cleaner if they smell bad.
"Great water bottle, bite valve is awesome and makes you want to drink water."
I don't think I've drank this much water before. When your drinking it out of a straw it just makes it more refreshing! The valve itself is fairly easy to clean too and replacement pieces aren't too pricey.
I have recommended this product to everyone I know. It is great for work, the gym, around the house etc. I had a problem with the top leaking but Moosejaw replaced it right away! The pink is a very fun color and definitely one I would buy again. I wish that it fit in my cup holders but since it doesn't leak I can safely put it in my purse.
