When I became a new mom I needed to stay hydrated, despite all of the things that were keeping my hands busy, like feeding, changing diapers, pulling a mobile basinett all around the house with me, etc. When I bought bottles of water, I'd run out of them and then go into dehydration mode. When I tried an aluminum bottle, it had the most awful taste. I tried using just a travel mug, but it was too awkward at times to hold and drink from it while carrying the baby, and it would fall over and leak at times. I realized I needed a bottle that was made for people who do sports and were constantly on the move. The Camelbak BPA-Free Better Bottle really helped me to fulfill the need to hydrate myself. My favorite detial is the finger loop. How simple and genius! I can hold it with my pinky if I need to while I get stuff done. The spill proof spout erases any chance for mishaps, and the bite valve is immensely convenient as I do not have to throw my head back to drink from it or worry about a straw that is exposed at the opening.  Since I have gotten this bottle, there is no excuse for me not drinking enough water. I loved it so much, I bought my husband, son, and aunt one each, and took one to a Dirty Santa party as a gift. I'd also like to note that I used the Camelbak as a means to wean my son from the bottle. At 9 months old, he wanted to try mine, and so he did and actually figured out how to drink from it from the get-go. After that, he "got" how sippy cups with suction worked. After he got a little older and grew enough teeth, I bought him one of his own. The ONLY complaint I would give is that sometimes if I hand wash it I have a hard time getting the soap taste out of the valve.  I have recently purchased the classic cap and now also enjoy drinking from it without the straw.

I was given a CamelBak BPA-free Water Bottle with Bite Valve 2 years ago as a birthday present. It quickly became my main water bottle that went with me everywhere. It's sleek, easy to fill, easy to use and easy enough to clean. It fits great in most cup holders, including my stroller. When I received it, it was right around the time that BPA was really making waves in the news, and I was 9 months pregnant at the time, so I was happy to start utilizing a product which was BPA-free.

I sadly no longer use it, as it started leaking terribly back up out of the bite valve, whenever it wasn't completely closed. I don't believe it started doing this based on normal wear-and-tear, but rather due to my toddler using it. She learned how to use a straw by drinking water from it, but unfortunately also chewed harder then I expected on the bite valve while she was drinking... leading to the valve weakening. So... is it a good product? I would say yes. Is it a good product to share with young children? No.

Spill proof & easy sipping convenience in this BPA free bottle

By 

from Peoria, AZ

Comments about CamelBak BPA-Free Better Bottle with Bite Valve:

 the CamelBak Better Bottle with Big Bite valve is the best water bottle ever. Over the last few years I have purchased so many water bottles that I had lost count.  Always looking for that one that was spill proof, the perfect size, Hold enough liquid but not so large that it would be awkard and it could be carried comfortably or hooked on a belt, fit the cup holders in the car and the lits would fit other bottles, dishwasher safe, AND most imprortant BPA FREE.The CamelBak Better bottle does all this and more.  Made of Eastman Tritan copolyseter, the bottle is completely BPA Free and dishwasher safe. It is impact resistance and can be used for hot or cold beverages. You can carry the integrated handle in the crook of a finger or connect it to a belt. Easy to fill with the widemouth opening and the shape fits our cars cup holders.  While it is dishwasher safe they do not recommend putting it in the dishwasher. The lids are interchangable and the selections of colors allows every member of the family to have their own color. Comes with a straw but you don't have to use it. leakproof so no more wet carry bags.  Buy one for every member of the family and they make fantastic gifts.

I take my CamelBak everywhere I go!

By 

from Anchorage, AK

Comments about CamelBak BPA-Free Better Bottle with Bite Valve:

First of all, I have to say that I absolutely love this water bottle. I take this water bottle everywhere I go, even at home! For a few reasons, I only gave it four stars, which I will explain.

What I like about this bottle: It comes in different sizes. My toddler has the kid's version while I prefer the 32 oz and my husband has the 24 oz one. It also comes in many different colors/designs. The bottle is extremely portable as it does not leak and is made of very hard durable materials.

What I don't like: The valve is not that easy to clean and does weaken over time. I use this constantly so other people that don't use it as often may not go through them as quickly as I have. With a couple of mine the bite valve stem has broken, the straw becomes too loose, or the air valve breaks. These are all due to overuse I'm sure, but I wish it was easier to get replacement parts instead of buying another bottle entirely. Although I prefer the 32 oz bottle, I wish it were more narrow so that it would fit in cup holders in the car, gym, etc.

The BEST water bottle

By 

from Gulfport, MS

Comments about CamelBak BPA-Free Better Bottle with Bite Valve:

I saw the Camelbak BPA-Free Better Bottle with Bite Valve at a local store back in the fall, and after leaving it on the shelf initially, I came back and bought it without knowing much else besides that it looked well built and I liked how the top was designed. I don't like having to unscrew an entire lid to drink water (adds time, and can be messy if you're in a car, etc.) and traditional water bottles spill if you don't close the top part each time after you drink. Well, this water bottle instantly became my trusty companion, and I know that I have consumed more water each day because of it. I have the blue, which is a beautiful shade, and I love that they are BPA Free. They come in a wide variety of colors online, and while it doesn't really fit in our cars' cup holder, that is a small price to pay for all of the other great features. I think it is easy to clean and very sturdily built. Outstanding product!

CamelBak better bottle solves all water bottle problems!

By 

from Provo, UT

Comments about CamelBak BPA-Free Better Bottle with Bite Valve:

I purchased this water bottle after having seen it around campus a lot.  I love the fun colors it comes in, but even more I love the construction of this waterbottle. It is great to carry around campus because it doesn't spill when I put it in my backpack, and even better I can use it throughout the day without having to worry about taking off the lid.  This means during lectures when I'm typing or taking notes, when I'm driving, when I'm walking, pretty much anywhere I want! This is great because it means I take in more water during the day, which is something that's usually pretty difficult for me to do.  The other thing that I love about this waterbottle is the fact that it is not too difficult to clean.  I thought at first with the straw and lid construction it would be a pain, but I just rinse it out with a bit of soapy water and then pull it all apart to dry for a few hours! Not a big deal at all. Overall I'd recommend this product to anyone, and I have!

I use my CamelBak every day

By 

from Mechanicsville, VA

Comments about CamelBak BPA-Free Better Bottle with Bite Valve:

I have a CamelBak bottle with the bite valve and I use it daily. I love that I can keep water with me at work without wasting disposable bottles. It also has a loop on the top so you can fasten it to a backpack for hiking or tie it to something when you're on the water and afraid to lose it. The bottle itself is easy enough to clean with a standard bottle brush. I prefer a soft-bristled one, but anything will work. The bite valve is harder to clean and must be removed from the bottle. I have to use a Q-tip, because I can't seem to get it clean enough with anything else. In fairness, my water leaves weird orange deposits on all surfaces, so I have to clean a little more thoroughly than most will. This is a sturdy bottle and it holds enough to get me through most of the day. I also appreciate that it comes in different color options, because my husband and I both have bottles and we can tell them apart easily. My only complaints are that I have to remember to bite the valve and let the water drain back down into the bottle or else it becomes trapped there when I flip the valve down, and that it doesn't fit in my car's cup holder so it sort of "floats" around the passenger seat, causing me to rummage for it.

Great Water Bottle for Work, Camel Bak

By 

from Duluth, MN

Comments about CamelBak BPA-Free Better Bottle with Bite Valve:

I received this water bottle for christmas and am very happy with it.  I received the green color, it's lovely.  I really feel like I'm drinking more water now that I have this.  The built in straw makes having a sip super simple.  You just have to flip up the mouth bite and start siping.  You do have to actually bite the mouth piece to get the water flowing.  After my first few days, I thought my teeth were a bit sore from doing this, but it isn't really bothersome at all.  The bottle is also pretty leak proof, so if it tips over, there are no spills.  The bottle is a nice size too, so it doesn't need to refilled very often.  This particular bottle does not fit in the beverage holder of my vehicle though but I think they do make a smaller size which has a smaller base so it would work in a cup holder.  There also are replacement bite parts if or when the original one wears out.  I would recommend this to anyone.

Camelbak with Bite Valve - the best

By 

from Sarver, PA

Comments about CamelBak BPA-Free Better Bottle with Bite Valve:

I got rid of my Sigg bottle with the non-bpa free interior coating, and went searching for a new better water bottle.  I ended up buying the CamelBak BPA-Free Better Bottle with Bite Valve.  What an awesome purchase!  It's durable, aesthetically pleasing, comes in lots of neat colors and several sizes, and the bite valve is a great feature.  I was skeptical at first, but I've found I drink more water sucking it through the bite valve and straw than I would out of a cup or a different bottle.  There's just something tactily nice about it.  I like that it's clear so I can see when I need to refill it, and that it has measurements on the side too.  I've used it constantly since I purchased it, with the occasional cleaning of course.  I'd heartily recommend the CamelBak BPA-Free Better Bottle with Bite Valve to anyone looking for a new water bottle, since I don't trust Sigg anymore after their lining issues.

Love this bottle for workouts.

By 

from San Jose, CA

Comments about CamelBak BPA-Free Better Bottle with Bite Valve:

Love this water bottle.  My husband and I were looking for new BPA free bottles a couple of years ago. I was also feeling a little guilty about buying bottled water and was looking for something a little greener.  I tried the Swigg bottle and it dented too easily and was awkward to use during workouts.  This bottle is great.  Easy to use and durable.  Bought the kid's version for my son.  The kid's version is a little bit different and the valve may need to be replaced more often since kids bite a bit more on the valve. 

No strange odors or tast with this bottle either.  Great quality.  However, replacement parts are kinda pricey.  Buying new valves and straws would almost make it more cost efficient just to buy a new bottle.  However, that would be wasteful. 

Camelbak offers great customer service too.  I had a couple of problems with my son's bottle and they replaced the lid free of charge and sent some additional goodies to compensate for the problem.
