    Anyone try the new camelbak bottle?



    I was thinking about getting a couple for my bike. I'm a huge fan of the bite valve that camelbak revolutionized. Absolutely love my camelbak, just wondering if anyone has tried this bottle, and if they like it. Thought I'd check around before spending 24 dollars on two of em.

    I bought one, but have not used it yet. They will not fit in standard bike cages.

    What is its diameter at the widest point?

    See that was what I was thinking, may not fit in my bike cage. But my cage bends and it can fit fairly wide of small bottles.

    I can save you some money. Next time you go by a trash can, pick up a 20 ounce pop bottle (soda bottle in non michigan), clean it out, and you will have the same thing for 0% of the cost.

    Why would I not want to spill water all over myself when I'm trying to drink? I have to look sexy somehow.

    I've been wanting to try these out as well. I like Nalgenes but they are hard to drink out of. These look a lot easier to drink out of, but I don't think they hold as much water.

    Nah, I just buy the 24oz squeeze type bottles. For some things, simple is better.

    Nalgenes are typically 32 oz, these are 25 oz. But- they have the bite valve like the water packs which is awesome.

    If they don't fit in a standard sized bottle cage..they'd do me no good for cycling. Now for when I play hockey in the Fall & Winter...? Maybe. But $24 dollars is a lot for a pair of water bottles. Sorry Pheard.

    I know a cheap squeeze bottle is 2-5 bucks. I don't really mind the 12 for the bottle. I found em for 10 and free shipping actually. Im just trying to figure out if its worth it.
