This is a great water bottle! It is easy to carry with you every day. I am a student, and this is an excellent water bottle to bring to school, and is water-fountain friendly. The only negative part is that you have to compress the straw to be able to drink, as there is a seal that makes it spill-proof.
love camelbak water bottles
When i buy water bottles I look for this brand water bottles since they look great, they do their job, and is affordable especially if you look on amazon. My boyfriend and I have lots of water bottles and majority of them are carmelbak and we recently got our three year old a small one we got for really cheap in the clearance section at target. So i guess you can say we are camelbak fans. Especially when I was pregnant I carried that water bottle everywhere from home and also when i had to work and when i was out and about. So i love it. I would recommend to anyone looking for a great looking and affordable and reliable water bottle. They made great white elephant gifts and gift in general. I have given them as gifts and they loved it. I would be happy to receive them as gifts. I am planning to get my parents some for valentines and anniversary combo gift. I think they will love it especially since its useful.
Loved, it got nasty, then the excellent company replaced it!
First let me begin by saying that Camelbak is an amazing company. They provide a lifetime warranty, and then they actually honor it.
My Camelbak is my favorite way to get all the water I need in a day without filling landfills with plastic waste.
After about a year of using my Camelbak daily, I noticed a nasty gunk building up in the straw and mouthpiece. I also could tell there was a snall hole letting air in through the mouthpiece when I would drink. I went online to submit my warranty claim. The process was a breeze. They quickly sent me a replacement straw and mouthpiece that worked perfectly.
Obviously even the best products can't last forever, but this company makes it so your initial small investment really does last forever. I am also a big fan of the Groove with the built in filter. Love their products! I have one, my husband has one, and we have plans to buy one for our almost three year old daughter soon. Perfect for walking, camping or just drinking water around the house.
Awesome Idea, With some drawbacks
I love my Camelbak water bottle. It is an extremely unique concept, and allows me to have easy access to my water at work, where it has to be spill proof. Because of the design, I don't have to touch the mouthpiece and that pleases me, because as a cashier, your're handling fairly filthy currency, which can and will get you sick at some point or another (somewhat higher than any other job I've had, I've been sick) and unless you don't care about the frequency of sickness, this makes the water bottle irreplaceable. My biggest problems with this product, is its mouthpiece, which is what makes it so unique. I worry about sanitation and still have found no real way to clean it out. Perhaps the company could come out with a way to clean the inside easier.
Also the first several weeks, despite cleaning daily, it tasted mildly of plastic. This was unpleasant, though not a deal breaker for me, because of its cleaner design, and because it tasted better than most bottled water to me. I'm unsure if the taste has gone away, or if I've just grown used to it.
The Best Waterbottle EVER
This water bottle is perfect in every way. It is sleek and fits into any average size holder. It makes drinking those 8 glasses a day that much easier. The size is perfect, I just wish the bite valve had more life. It does need to be replaced every once in a while.
Great all-around bottle.
Overall its a great water bottle for both hiking and everyday use. It is durable and doesn't spill. The cap has an easy clipon area for clipping your bottle to your backpack for easy transport while hiking. The only reason I gave it a 9 instead of a 10 was it can be difficult to clean at times; especially if you put in something other than water which can create mold growth. Like i said to start with though, great overall bottle to make sure you never go thirsty.
It's a nice water bottle
I usually go through water bottles like a baby goes through diapers. However, I've purchased this water bottle 5 months ago, and I'm still using it! It's convenient to carry around, spill-proof design, and the bite valve is very nice. My only problem with it so far, is that it's a little pricey, but you do get what you pay for! Cleaning the bottle is very simple. Just take off the bite valve, and pull out the straw, stick them into the bottle with a little soap, fill it with water, screw the lid on, give it a little shake, and let it sit for 15 minutes. The outside can be cleaned with a little soap water and a cloth. Unfortunately, the bottle doesn't keep my water cool, so I have to place it in a cool area, which isn't that much of a bottle. Also, this bottle can be used for flavored drinks (sports drinks, packets that you pour into water, Crystal Light, etc.). My old water bottle got ruined by my cousin since she decided to pour Kool-Aid in it, and some of it got absorbed into the filter. With this water bottle, it can easily be cleaned out and removed.
I love this water bottle. It works just like it should and it can screw right into my water filtrating apparatus. I like the amount if water it holds too. The only downside to this water bottle is that the mouthpiece doesn't stay down sometimes and when it doesn't it can get bumped and let water escape.
Best water bottle ever!
I have been using CamBak products for years. I have two reservoirs and three of their water battles. I absolute love them. They are very high quality and durable. They can take a little abuse and will last for a very long time. I run mine through the dishwasher all the time, without any problems. Using these can even be a little addicting. I'm not a doctor by any means - but, I actually think that drinking from a straw with a little back pressure has been good for my sinuses and allergies.
I love this water bottle.
This is my favorite water bottle! I take it with me every where. I can honestly say that I enjoy drinking from it. It makes drinking water fun. This water bottle has made me a lover of H20. I enjoy lifting up the straw and taking a sip. I also like that the bottle comes with a clip attached to it. I can attach my water bottle to my lunch box or to my backpack if I am going on a walk. It is very strong so I don't have to worry about it falling off and breaking. Which, I doubt it would do anyway. This bottle is very strong and durable. The plastic is hard and very strong. I also like that the water bottle is sealed tight. I hate water bottles that spill and leak. It can really make a mess. I have never had this problem with this water bottle though. Another great thing is it's straw. I can get every bit of water out of the bottle without having to turn it upside down or lean it at a strange angle.
