The story behind CamelBak hydration packs started back in 1988 when a guy named Michael Eidson was preparing for the “Hotter’N Hell 100,” a 100-mile summer cycling race in Wichita Falls. Before the event, Michael (an EMT by trade) filled an IV bag with water and stashed it in the back of his jersey. With the tube slung over his shoulder and a clothespin to pinch it closed in between drinks, Michael had unknowingly created the prototype for what would become the CamelBak hydration system.

Obviously buying this because it's glass so probably realize the two inherent drawbacks. Bulky and heavy. That being said the snug rubber protective wrap keeps the bottle quite safe, although a hard corner could still pierce the glass. The straw and mouthpiece are typically a-one CamelBak quality. The water out of glass tastes so much better, at least to me.

I bought two of these for my kids because they were getting a little too old for sippy cups. They love their new water bottles. I was a little worried that they might have a hard time using the bite mouthpiece thing, but they figured it out in about 30 seconds. Easy to clean and so far no leaks.

Wanted a water bottle to take on upcoming breast cancer walk where I can refill the bottle every 3 miles. This is perfect! Belt fits well--carries phone, ID, keys and water bowl for 4-legged walking partner. The water bottle is easily accessible. I use the extra elastic from the belt with a half-hitch to hold my lightweight jacket when I don't need it anymore. Probably not enough water for a very long walk but perfect for my needs.

This water bottle is great for both of my kids in elementary school. It does not leak and fits perfect in the side pocket of their backpacks. This is the only way I can get them to drink water at school. I love that it is dishwasher safe as well. I would highly recommend this product.
