Modern Water Bottle
June 28, 2013
I have owned this bottle for about 8 months, and the smaller 21 oz version for a year now. Both bottles are holding up nicely, and have the jet valve and insulated interior. I feel that it would be hard to improve on this design, and it is amazing to me how much even bike bottles have improved over the last decade with the access consumers have to low priced high quality materials. I had to bend in my bike cage slightly, using my hand, to ensure the bottle fit snugly, as the bottom portion of this 25 oz version seems a little narrower than the 21 oz version. I am glad I purchased this bottle, and I would do so again.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, full featured
The ONLY water bottle I use!
May 20, 2013
Like many cyclists, I have dozens of water bottles. However, this Camelbak insulated bottle is the one I use 99% of the time. I mix my sports drink with a handful of ice cubes, and it stays cold for quite some time. The only thing I would recommend to others, is take a look at the YouTube from Camelbak about keeping the mouthpiece clean. There is a trick to popping it off for cleaning, and they explain it pretty well. I definitely recommend this water bottle.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use

Overall the bottle was very pleasing. It fit in my cars cup holder, kept water cool, and if some one got on my nerves i could simply point, squeeze, and squirt. ;) I love it! Great purchase! I found only two things that I didn't really enjoy and those are: 1. the bottles cap/nipple was a lot harder to take off to clean than i saw on a cleaning video. & 2. Every now and then it will build up pressure or something and you can hear it making a small ticking sound releasing air from the jet value. other than these small things it does it's job very well.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Greatest water bottle I've had yet!!
June 14, 2012
Out of all the water bottles I've had yet (which have been too many to count in the last year alone), this is by far the greatest I've purchased! None of my others were nearly as durable as the Camelbak Big Chill. I got it because a friend had it, and he loves it. I have no complaints, besides the water leaking if I don't screw it on tight enough, and a little weird sputtering noise when pressure's built up inside. But all in all, the pros outweigh the cons! I love this bottle!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value, insulation lasts hours

The jet valve works great (I can even use it as a water gun...although now my friends hate this bottle). It closes and doesn't leak, it opens and is easy to drink from, and most of all, it keeps my drinks cold!Pros: Great design

I've been using the CamelBak Podium Big Chill 25 oz Bottle everyday for a few months now and I've had no problem with leaking. The jet valve definitely works to get a blast of water and the double walls keeps water colder longer. I did a comparison test with my old water bottle and the "Big Chill" beat it.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Great value

I love this insulated water bottle! I add some ice cubes to my water before I start my ride and it keeps the water cool (not cold, so don't be disappointed!) The jet valve mechanism is amazing. Love this bottle!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use
