4.8 out of 5

It's pretty well a standard with the group I ride with. The 21 oz version is great to have for fitting in the back cage on a mountain bike since the 24 oz version is too tall. Other than that use, I don't see why you wouldn't get the 24 oz version, but I digress. Great, easy to use top that can lock which is a nice feature, by spinning the area right below the nipple. I always forget to unlock it though but it's nice to be able to lock it when you go to shake up stuff pre-ride. I prefer the non-insulated version to the insulated one because the insulated one, while great in theory, doesn't have enough of a lip for the bottle cages on my bike to grab onto well. The end result is several bounce outs in rides, which is always a pain to chase back on from. End result is I keep coming back to this bottle and it's 24 oz version. I probably have 10 of them and they area all I use. Super simple. You can either suck or squeeze to get water out but they seem to be much less likely to leak than the cheapies.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Ease of use
Happy with bottle.

I like that I taste only my water or other beverage instead of plastic.Instead of the traditional pop up spout this bottle has what I would describe as a dial to go from on to off.I turn that dial on while its still in the bottle cage prior to drinking otherwise I've found it necessary to sit up in the saddle andtake my hands off the bars to operate the dial from closed to drink mode.
I love you jet valve.

Can't even compare to the cheap freebie water bottles. The valve on this is stellar. Whether you squeeze the bottle itself or suck on it little if any mess. My only concern when i first purchased was how to keep it clean. It's proven to be as easy as any other bottle to keep clean. Have 3 i keep in rotation on my bike.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance

I was looking for a water bottle for my daughter to take to school. This had been a challenge for 4 years. We've tried endless brands & styles only to have her come home with soaked backpacks, books & homework due to leaking or spilled water. No lie, Camelback has made our life so much easier!! It all started when My husband received a gift from his friend who served in the military. It was a Camelbak viper backpack for when he rides his bike. My husband could not stop talking about how much he loved it & how you "bite" to open the valve. So I ordered a childs Camelbak 12oz water bottle online & the most incredible thing happend! no more spills! The entire family only uses Camelbak for our water now... We have recommended them to any and everybody we know & with the lifetime guarantee, it's that much better!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, kid friendly, Cons: none
Best 20 bucks spent

Switched from Specialized bottles because they were making a mess of my bike. Great bottles! I am bummed I didn't find them sooner.

This bottle doesn't drip or leak and is easy to use while on the move. It doesn't retain tastes from your last beverage either. Definately my favorite bottle!
The positive shut off valve is great!. No more sticky drips.

The positive shut off valve is great!. No more sticky drips on the bottom bracket and cable guides. Once you learn how to turn the valve open and closed I am sure you will appreciate it too. I like the idea of drinking from plastic that that does not contaminate my water as well.

This is a good all-purpose water bottle. It is BPA free and has two leak protection features which make it great to use!
