If the bottle didn't leak whilst taking it out, I would have given it a 5 star review.
It holds a good amount of water and is easy to clean as it dismantles easily and can go in the dishwasher which is ideal. They're strong & hard wearing - the ones I've had for 2 years look as good as new. The bite valve is lovely to use and it's compatible with the extended Camelbak tubing so you can store in in a bag if you wish.
The only improvements I would like would be to make it watertight as it can occasionally leak if it's lying down (they do recommend keeping it upright). I would also like a cover available so the big bite valve could be covered during transportation.
Those are only minor niggles - in short I love these bottles and regularly recommend them to other people.
I love this bottle. Mine is a pink colour and it looks really nice. The design is great. It took a little while to get used to the bite and suck method, but it is second nature now. It is, also, very reassuring to know that if you knock it over it won't leak everywhere. I would say since buying it I drink probably three times as much as I used to.
The only reason it lost a star is that when my valve and straw goes (which it will because of the biting) I will have to buy a whole new bottle. Yes, you can buy them as a seperate part but they are almost as expensive!
My fiance has just bought one and I would not hesitate to buy another if mine ever fails.
EDIT 03/09/12: Well, my bottle has failed but not for the reason I thought! The biting valve is impossible to clean properly inside! I cleaned my bottle and put it away over the summer hols. Just been to get it out, as it's back to work tomorrow, and it is all mouldy inside the valve! Eurgh. It's not possible to clean it so I have had to bin it. My fiance also has one and exactly the same has happened to him.
On the one hand, I don't think this is good enough for the price. We have only used water in them, nothing else. On the other, both bottles have been used for over two years with no problems. I think that is fairly reasonable and, as such, have only reduced my rating by one star.
I have purchased another Camelbak but the cheaper 'performance' one. If that lasts two years I will be pleased.
edit: I have also noticed now black dirt building up in the valve which is impossible to clean out properly. God knows how long it has been there but heres hoping I don't get sick.

Works well for a while, but the bit you suck from wears out after a while and needs replacing (otherwise it leaks). The replacements seem very expensive. Not sure i'd buy again.Published 20 months ago by Janet
Have had several of these. A bit difficult to clean (we now use baby sterilising tablets) but last well and don't leak.Published on 29 Dec. 2012 by Mrs. Jane Jordan
I bought one of these to take travelling, choosing it for the design of the spout and high quality plastic body, having disliked the taste from another sports bottle I had. Read morePublished on 5 Nov. 2012 by JW
