Camelbak's Bite Valve technology in a squeezable sports bottle.
A no-spill, no-leak bottle for any athletic adventure. The CamelBak Performance Bottle incorporates CamelBak's Bite Valve technology in a squeezable, easy-to-use sports bottle. Rotate upper part of cap 1/4 turn to stop water flow. Squeeze sides to increase flow. Perfect for runners or cross-trainers. My walking buddies all went nuts for the Camelbak water bottles. Why? Because you don't have to tilt them up to drink out of them. You just suck on the bite valve and the bottle's interior straw draws up your water. That means you don't obstruct your view while walking, biking, driving, keyboarding, etc. The original Camelbak Better Bottles were made of clear polycarbonate, but now they are made of BPA-free materials.

This is my favorite water bottle. I like that I can take it on shorter trail runs and not have to take my eyes off of the trail when I want a drink. I can fill it with ice (using regular ice cubes from the freezer). I've never tried to freeze it, but considering that drinks freeze from the top of the liquid down, so unless you freeze the entire amount of liquid in the bottle, it should still be fine.
It blasts the perfect amount of drink into my mouth with a gentle draw and squeeze on the bottle. I couldn't be happier with this bottle.
The only thing that I don't like, is that someone at CamelBak told me in an email that they're discontinuing this bottle. It was in response to their selling the bottle with a bottle strap for use while running. They said that the strap and bottle combo will change to using the CamelBak Podium bottle, so hopefully the person from CamelBak just meant that the Performance bottle will only not be sold with the strap anymore, but will hopefully still be made and sold. If it's going to be discontinued, I'm going to buy several more.
If you're like me and don't like a pack swishing and shifting on your back or waist, this is for you. Easy and quick to refill, lt weight and simple to hydrate. No tilting your head back taking your eyes off the trail. Just suck on the mouth piece and your good to go.
It seals well and does not leak. I've had two in blue for over a year and only one has a minor leak around the lid (My fault). I'm rough on my equipment. Just make sure to hand wash in the sink and clean the straw and mouth piece with a brush. If you have to put them in the dish washer, place on top rack.
Clip works well and will also allow you to hook it in the crook of your finger on the opposite hand while slamming a gel.
Only wish it came with nylon run strap as before.
This bottle rules. It has the bite valve and straw to make it an adult sippy-cup. The polypro bottle is soft as well so you can wrench on it for a faster drink to get back to breathing when you're exercising.
The common complaint can be fixed with a little adjustment. temperature change, elevation change or carbonation will cause it to build up pressure inside and slowly force the liquid out of the bite valve (air bubble on top grows, forces liquid up straw...). remove the straw and it will never happen
If you run it through the dishwasher, clean any dishwasher debris out from under the silicone umbrella valve on the inside of the cap.
It has served its purpose well for cycling. I'll put my energy drinks in this while my hydration pack is used for water. The bottle has been very durable, easy to use when on the go and I always love it when there is a spot to clip a carabiner. When I'm not on my bike I use the better bottle for workouts.
I hated my last bottle so I wasn't going to get my hopes up on the next one I bought but I have to say I love this bottle. Yeah it's not insulated or anything like that but its great for work or out on the trail. It is light weight so it won't weight 5 lbs with water.
It's a good bottle. Holds up pretty well and it's kind of a joy to drink from. The plastic doesn't leave a plasticy taste to the water so, that was a plus.
The only drawback is the mouthpiece sticks out and can't be folded in, but for a fairly low-priced bottle, what more can you want?!
I like this water bottle. It's lightweight and clips to my daypack. The only problem with it is that I drank some lemonade out of it once and ever since (despite washing it many times), I still get a hint of that lemonade... It'd be 5 stars if it wasn't for that. :)
I bought some Camelbak Better bottles for drinking out of at home, and some of these Performance bottles for taking in the car. It sits in my cupholder and the water somehow gets sucked up into the top and leaks out. I come back to a big puddle in my cupholder and a wet bottle to throw in my napsack. Not good. Also, because this twists to open, instead of fliping like the Better bottle, my three year olds are not coordinated enough to open it on their own. When I started carrying the better bottle in the car I didn't have the hassle of reaing around to open it for them.
I'm not a very big fan of this bottle. Because of the straw, it is impossible to add a decent amount of ice. You also can't freeze it either. Maybe it is good for bike rides, but that is about it.
