Great Bottle But...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

CamelBak makes great bottles and the Chill line does a great job both keeping your beverage a little colder for a little longer and delivering it past your lips. It's easy to keep a good gripe on this bottle even with sweaty hands or a wet bottle. The easy to use open and close valve does great and the no drip diaphragm on the squirt top is one of my favorites out there. Think a quick and precise jab of quench. My only grip is getting a good match with this long bottle and a bottle cage. Having this bottle parallel with my seat post has from time to time slanted to the left or right while riding thus getting snagged on my shorts or catching my leg. Could be more of the cages fault but its something to keep in mind while shopping for a new bottle.
