Nice looking bottles, but the top is a hit or miss. Bought a pair and one of them works just fine, it's relatively easy to clean (since the top comes off) and I always tend to get dirt in my bottles while riding. However, the other bottle's top doesn't dispense water properly while on a ride, I have to squeeze it quite forcefully for the liquid to come out.
Also, they scratch more easily than others I've had. After a single ride, the finish on them was ruined, which was the appeal of the bottle in my opinion.
I like the looks of the bottle but there are some shortcomings. Firstly I am comparing it to the Camelback Podium which is less attractive imo yet far superior in functionality. The Elite rubber top comes off which may be a boon to cleaning but is a detriment while riding. The top also must be pulled up to get water. You might as well use an old school style. The bottle itself is a bit hard and tougher to squeeze, not as fun while tired on the bike. I say stick with the Camelbaks.
