Easy to replace

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Always nice having a spare on hand. Whether it's from a dog chewing this up in the backseat or having the moutpiece sitting in something nasty when putting your pack on the floor, it's nice to be able to pull a new one out and pop it on. Easy to sip through and has good water flow

Good to have a spare.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are reliable and seem to work very well. There is good water flow when needed but then no drip when you are not using it. Simple product but kind of a pain when one of these go missing.

As Intended

Good replacement piece. Fits as should, and good to have extras. Cheaper than in the store, and free shipping if your order more with backcountry too!

Standard Replacement

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My camelbak is an old one, I bought it 7 years ago, so I was afraid that I could not find a replacement to fit on it, but happily it is still being the same one :)

My last one lasted 13 years

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Eventually they wear out. By eventually I mean 13 years in my case. For $.45 per year, I'm fine replacing this every once in a while. Works great, same great quality.

Perfect replacement.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this the replace the torn up and shredded valve on my 6 year old bladder. It's a perfect fit, and seems to be even better than the original. If you need it, get it!

Solid mouth piece

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My old one ripped so I'm glad they had replacements! Fits very snug and works great

Another lost mouth piece

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

A replacement

    Luckily, they sell these replacements, sometimes you could loose yours

    Quick and easy!

      Had to get a replacement for my mouthpiece when I lost it camping. Super easy to use, works perfectly

      Simply Necessary

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      It's one of those items that you need to have working properly. I just replaced my bite valve because it was cut and leaking all over the place. Simple replacement and I'm ready to roll again. Perfect fit as always.

      Just what I needed.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The original fell apart, and this replacement is just what I needed.

      Replace it

        They don't last forever, but think about the torture you put it through. You bite it, pull it on and off to clean it, toss it in the back of your truck for a week in the hot sun or freezing cold. It's best to have the mindset that this is a consumable part.

        Replace it

        Good Mouthpiece

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        These work really well. Water flows well when you want, they don't drip (too much) when you don't. They do not last forever, but they are also 6 dollar pieces of rubber so that is kind of what I expect.

        Decent durability

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Picked up a couple of these to replace the aging bite valves on reservoirs that my wife and I use pretty regularly. I'm happy with how long these last before starting to get funky or leak - we had one that started to leak after about 4 years and another that fell victim to an over-zealous rodent on a recent backpacking trip. These are easy enough to clean - I usually just rinse with hot water, only occasionally use soap, and make sure to take them off the hose to fully dry. I've gotten mildew in them on occasion, but a quick flush with soapy water takes care of it. They have a bit of a rubber taste when brand new but I've found that it wears off after a couple uses.

        Can this mouthpiece fit the Nathan Sports...

        Can this mouthpiece fit the Nathan Sports Intensity race vest? I am reading differing tubing diameters online...it appears that my Nathan tubing is 10 mm OD (eyeing it w/ a ruler)...but I've read CamelBak's tubing is smaller. Can you verify that this mouthpiece will fit 10 mm OD tubing? And has anyone successfully used this on a Nathan Sports race vest?

        Best Answer

        Lindsey, I put a Camelbak valve on the tube of my Nathan HPL #020 hydration vest and it works great. I just pulled it off an older Camelbak reservoir I had when the Nathan valve broke. (The Nathan valve is a DAKINE valve and, in my opinion, is pretty worthless.) The Camelbak valve I put on was not the Big bit valve. It was one with an insert that slides into the tube. It works great so I am guessing the inside diameters of the Nathan and Camelbak must be pretty close - close enough that the Camelbak valve fits snuggly with no issues.

        Get a new one

        My brothers Big Bite Mouthpiece broke after a few years of extended use and needed a replacement so I got him this one. Works great! Put some "special" lube on the hose and let it slide right into the mouthpiece and let it dry. ;)

        It dun broke

          I had a camelbak for several years with the bite valve and it worked great for a few but right as I hitting the trail a while back it broke. It kinda cracked in half like it had been soaked then dried one too many times. not sure if I didn't follow some sorta maintenance thang, but anyways I recommend a valved mouth piece. PS it leaks after a while as well.
