The Best Water Bottle!
I love this water bottle, I have been using these on a daily basis for the past 8 years! I love the size, It's one of the few that will hold a full 32oz that you can drink out of without twisting off the lid! They are so convenient, unlike ones that you have to twist off the lid or even just pour out of a spout you can take a drink while doing anything and not make a mess or stopping what you are doing! Walking, jogging, even laying down (love this the best because I get thirsty at night, with this bottle I don't have to "fully" wake up)! I use these daily, and am not friendly, they get thrown in my car, my bag, dropped (multiple times)! I have found, that although tough they do have there limits, going through all of that, i find that they last me about a year before they break, or start to leak, but completely worth it, and last longer than anyother water bottle I've had. Until it reaches it's breaking point I have never had any problems with leaking and 80% of the time it is not in an upright position.
To the person who has problems with it coming out of the straw, I'd recommend after you finish drinking to bite the straw once more, that will empty the straw, otherwise sometimes water will stay in the straw and build up pressure and sometimes "leak" like that. Also it might do that no matter what if you leave it in an extremely hot car, but that's just physics, but it won't come running out until you "open" it.
The only thing I would change would be to make it taller and skinnier so it would fit in a cup holder. The smaller ones do, but I drink a lot of H2O and need the convenience of the 32oz.
Love the measurements and capacity
I use this product on the daily basis. I have owned it for almost 10 years and have finally decided to replace it for a new one. First I love the capacity as I take it with me everywhere. I am constantly refilling it during the day in order to stay hydrated. I can accurately calculate how much I am or am not drinking because of the measurements on the side. I am used to the valve system (biting on it to drink.) This is great because it helps to keep the fluid from leaking. I have never had any leaking problems with my bottle until recently, but again it is over 10 years old. I have also dealt with Camelbak Customer service when the stem broke on me at one point. They were amazing and sent a new top at no charge. In conclusion, I love the product. No, it does not fit in the normal size drink holders because of its large capacity. If you want it to fit, then by the smaller size. The 34oz is more important to me that I did not care. It fits in my car, my hands and in my backpack.
this product is good over all - it makes me drink so much more water throughout the day with the straw. i hate the water bottles that you have to twist the lid off because water always gathers in the mouth piece and will go all over you. but this product also leaks through the straw I THINK - can't exactly figure out where it's coming from, but it kills me. it'll be sitting on my desk and i'll go to take a drink and i'll get soaked - it just builds up SOMEWHERE. i will continue to buy camelbaks because of the straw feature, but they need to get some scientists in that lab to stop the leaking problem.
I like it
I use this as a daily water bottle when I am in the office, about 2-3 times a week. I have had this about two weeks and so far so good. I like the fact that I can carry it by the loop on top and the design is nice. So far I have not experienced any leaking, I carry it upright inside of a shoulder totebag.When I am in the office, I lock my water inside of my file cabinet. Biting it to take a drink has taken some getting used to. If youhave sensitive teeth keep this in mind. Overall I am happy with the purchase and would recommend it to others.
Awesome water bottle
I have had two of these bottles. They are amazing. They don't leak at all. Not sure why the other reviews say they do. The only reason I have needed to buy 2 is because they have been stolen from me. The first one lasted me 3 months and the second one lasted only a few days. I guess someone needed those water bottles more than I did. It is a very strong bottle, easy to carry, and easy to drink from. I am going to go to the store to buy another one shortly!
I like the CamelBak bite-valve bottles. It occasionaly leaks (not very much) and these new "eddy" models have a slower water flow rate than previous styles. I keep one at my desk at work, on my nightstand at home, and with my camping/hiking gear. It's a good multi-use bottle
Great & handy
It is a must have to help stay hydrated.
