I like drinking from water bottles with straws, but after one day of using this style, my jaw hurt from having to bite down on the valve to drink. Also, the flow of water was slower through the bite valve than I'm used to, so it felt frustrating to not get much water...
Also, after less than a week of use, the plastic "flip" piece broke off. This is the piece of plastic that you press on to flip up the drinking valve. Now, in order to flip up the valve, I have to touch the tip of the valve where I drink from - not very sanitary...

I got this water bottle because my friend told me how great it was and how much she liked it. I needed one to carry around with me. She told me how all you have to do is bite the top to sip and how a study was shown you drink 20-25% more water (I forgot what # it was) so I was like, "well, that is neat." The thing I do like is that it has ounces on the side so you can measure your intake. I gave it 2 stars off because I can't tell you how much I hate biting the top just to sip. I feel like my front teeth are going buck because you have to bite it fairly hard so what I do is just use the side of my mouth with my side teeth. Haha.

We're happy with our purchase of these bottles - one of each color. CamelBak's bite top allows water flow only when you want it. Great for in the car - no more unscrewing tops to drink. Although it does fit in the cup holder, it is a tight fit, and sticks in both of our cars' holders. A bit annoying, but not a deal-breaker. We only put water in, no other drinks, as cleaning could be a problem, even though the straw section is detachable. Would buy again.

I love this bottle, it is a great size and fits into my cupholders and mesh pockets on my backpack. I have had no problems with leaking and I have knocked it over several times. Typical cambelbak good quality.

A great price for a great bottle. I use this for my bedside bottle of water and cannot spill it no matter how I ":try". Usually I knock over my water at night reaching for it, not this one. The spout, which can be folded under the "handlle" for storage, when in the open position has to be squeezed or boitten much like those nblow up valves in wading pools or summer beach touys to get the water to come out. Even in my half sleep I manage to do so and the BPA free and size labelled (for quantitiy in ml) hard plastic is partly recycled too. All in all a great purchse !
