No Leaking and Spills

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Love the Jet Valve system, it's easy to get just the right amount of water without the spills. Great design, as others have mentioned, fits in hand and cage well. Best of all, the water tastes like water and not plastic!

Great portable hydration device!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This bottle fit my water cage very well with no movement, but is still easy to pull out with one hand. The jet valve cap is a nice feature which I've used to make a quick sip easier unlike traditional push-in caps that you need to pull out with your teeth before you can take a sip. The insulation on the bottle was only so-so allowing the ice to melt in only an hour into a ride. I bought two and will buy them again.

Pretty Cool I Guess

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

As far as the basic bottle function goes the Podium Chill ticks all the boxes. It is easy to clean, doesn't leak, and sits firmly in my bottle cages. When it comes to keeping the contents cool the Podium Chill does far better than standard bottle but still struggles on hot days. Starting with some ice in my bottles I've done several 2+hour rides in 75-80 degree Fahrenheit but the bottles can't seem to keep things cold much beyond hour 1.5. In all fairness my standard bottles would be warm/hot a the same time mark.

Overall it is good, not great.

Good product

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great bottle, I use it for bike rides. The water stays cold for at least a couple of hours, nice design, I'm planning to buy one extra bottle

Deeper jet valve cleaning

Jet valve can separate in two parts for a better cleaning

Deeper jet valve cleaning

Amazing!!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great! We have several of them and use them from workouts, basketball, golf, mountain biking, hiking, road trips...etc. They work well in keeping your drink cold as the insulation does it's job even in 100+ heat. I also love the jet valve as it's handle to get a quick drink and takes little effort.

Like the Podium bottle, but a bit cooler

    These bottles work well - they're like the standard Podium bottles I love functionally - but keep your drink cooler. On a hot day it's nice to use one of these for a bit cooler drink. That said, don't expect that you're going to have a cold drink hours into a ride - that amount of insulation isn't conducive to riding a bike.

    Here's my trick to best using them. Fill it with ice, then with your beverage of choice. Make this bottle number 2. Then bottle number 1 fill with less ice and your tasty beverage. Drink bottle number 1 first, so that by the time you need bottle number 2 the ice has mostly melted, but your drink is col.

    Not as cool as I'd throught

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Build quality is great on this bottle. No complaints, broken parts, or leaks to be heard of. Easy to use, disassemble, and clean. Sizing is great and fits well in my hand, water bottle cages, cup holders, and bags/packs.

    Great bottle by all means, but my only complaint is that I don't think the insulation works all that well. Maybe I just forgot how warm an uninsulated bottle can actually get, but I've never thought "Wow! This water sure is cold!"

    "Sure, but what's the big deal?"

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Most of the finer points of these great bottles have been made below: Camel back knows hydration, stays cool, durable, etc. I agree with all the highs and some of the lows. Here's why I continue to love these bottles:
    Once you've experienced having almost ice-cold water/whatever in the middle of a really, really hot event, you'll forget all about the weight, height, less-than;perfect closure system.
    These bottles seem to insulate and preserve ice and temperature far better than others I've used and they've saved many rides so far!

    works like a water bottle...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Keeps things cool but couple of things I wish I realized before buying.
    1. These are really tall. I didn't think about that before buying and with my frame (54) getting them out is a bit of a pain.
    2. The twist lock to close is not my favorite. I prefer the push/pull of the other bottles.

    Carries 25oz cool and drip free

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    other bottles have drooled all over my frame and even fouled my bottom bracket.

    These work as described and simply don't leak at all when in the closed position; in the open position, liquid won't dispense unless you squeeze the bottle or shake it vigorously. When squeezed, beverage flows smoothly. The insulation keeps your drink cooler than otherwise, bit is not miraculous.

    However:
    1) the clever nozzle is hard to clean and hard to remove and reattach.
    2) the extended capacity makes for a tall bottle that might be tight on your frame. It fits my 61cm frame with just a bit to spare on the seat tube.
    3) the bottoms are not flat! The are convex. My pair wobble slightly. For $15/ea, they should sit flat sit they don't tumble easily in the fridge and car.

    Cool running

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Hey, if anyone knows anything about hydration it is Camelbak, and this has been a staple in my water bottle arsenal for a few years now. Keeps the ice lasting just a bit longer, easy to clean, and the jet valving is just perfect to not drool all over yourself.

    Nice and simple

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    You can't go wrong with these water bottles. I use them for every day riding, and tack on two for centuries. They keep liquids moderately cooler, but the thing I like most is that they're a good capacity and still fit in my cages. My only problem is that the nozzle can be hard to clean, I recommend using a Q-Tip to get the gunk out of there. Then a good soak and clean.

    Hands down my favorite waterbottle!

      Keeps my water nice and cool on hot days! Love the size - large enough to hold water for a significant hike/bike ride, yet won't weigh you down. Love the no-leak valve. I keep it open on bike rides and it still doesn't leak. I like not having to mess with the opening and closing of a valve while on a ride.

      The CamelBak bounce off a cliff bottle

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      No,it didn't,but it could and survive an impact that would shadder any other bottle!

      great size

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Took this on a bike ride and the size was prefect, I thought it was better than having two. Not sure about how cold it keeps the water, because it is still cold outside.

      great bottle

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      this bottle is nice and big so you can carry all the water you need for almost any ride you do. not only does it hold alot of water, it also helps keep your drink cold, so your not having hot water on warm summer ride.

      Extra Cool Capacity

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I loved my 21oz Podium Chill enough that I bought the 25oz version. The extra size fits really well into the water bottle cage on the bike, however the added height may have some interference on smaller framed bikes seat/ top tube. When its really hot out I appreciate every extra ounce of fluid I can get. Same great insulation and functionality as the 21oz version.
