Bite Valve Waterbottle

Dec 21, 2008
Review by  
Rated a Helpful Review

Pros:BPA-Free, variety of colors and sizes.

Cons:Bite Valve is difficult to use.

The Bottom Line: I would not recommend the bite valve version of this bottle.


I wanted to purchase a new water bottle for biking that would not require me to unscrew the cap or tip up to drink since the water often dribbles on me.  I have used the screw top Camelbak BPA-free water bottles before and decided to purchase the bite valve model because it promised to be easy to use.  This product is great because it is made out of polycarbonate and the water does not taste like plastic.
 
The first time I used the bottle was during a long bike ride and I flipped the straw up and try to get a sip of water.  It took several tries to get any water because you have to bite with some pressure on the straw to get water.  I thought it was similar to a straw where you try to suck the water up but I guess I was wrong.  I got frustrated with it so I had to pull over and figure it out.  After several uses of the bottle, I am still a little uncomfortable with the biting of the straw.  Plus it is difficult to clean the straw and the bite valve and I worry about the germs that maybe lurking in there.  I decided to not use the bite valve anymore and just unscrew the top to continue using the bottle.

For me, I would purchase the Camelbak bottles that have the screw top.
