Last pair was the full metal jacket - still have 'em. But these puppies are my new favorites. Nice snug but comfortable fit.
Great option to prevent their slobber from getting over your mouthpiece - get their own. Our kids are proud to carry their own stuff. The fit was good even for my 3 year old (cinched down to the smallest fit).
The only drawback I see in the Skeeter is the mouthpiece. Soft rubber is very enticing for the orally fixated child to chew. After a few good chomps, the rubber wont retain the water so well. Since it is the same mouthpiece that other Camelbaks have, it is easy to replace - just wish I didnt have to...
She loves it!
