I chose the Smoke coloured model and it looks just like the pictures, only a bit darker - but it's still transparent, so you can see what's inside and how much liquid you've got left easily. It's fairly straight-bodied, with just a few grooves near the top to give you a bit of grip. Bottles I've had in the past have had sections that are quite thin at certain points of the body. That's good for holding on to the bottle of course, but it cuts down on the capacity slightly. Just having these slight grooves/indentations in this Camelbak bottle means that the bottle is slightly more compact than my older bottles that have similar capacity.
The locking mechanism on the nozzle is simple, but works well. You just have to twist it about 90 degrees and that opens the valve. There are little symbols on the lid that part of the mechanism points to (a sort of pear shape when open and the same symbol but with a line through it when closed), so you can see by looking at them whether water is going to come out or not. The system works very well - absolutely no water ever comes out when the valve is closed and even if it's open, you can turn the bottle upside down and water still won't come out, unless your start shaking it around or squeeze the bottle.
The opening of the bottle is nice and wide, so there would be no problem if you wanted to put ice cubes and there's enough space to get a washing up brush in there to clean it. The bottle is also dishwasher safe, though I haven't put it in mine yet. You can also remove the tip of the nozzle for cleaning and I think you'd need to do that before putting it in the dishwasher, as it's a sort of rubbery material, rather than hard plastic.
The capacity is just about perfect for me - much less and it needs refilled too often, but much more and the bottle would begin to get a bit too big, but of course that's personal preference. You get pretty much bang on 700ml capacity if you fill it to the level of where the cap screws on which is what I do, but it will get up to the advertised 710ml as there's still a bit of room above that. When you want to drink, you can either suck it out from the nozzle, or squeeze the bottle to get more of a jet of water coming out. Squeezing somewhere around the middle, just below the grooves gives the best results.
There is some nice technology in the materials of the bottle, which are labelled on it at the bottom. It's free of BPA and BPS which is always good. It also features 'TruTaste' - which prevents the bottle from affecting the taste of your water - and 'Hydroguard' which apparently has anti-microbial properties, to prevent any funny odours, discolouration or deterioration of the bottle.
The only slight issue I've noticed so far, is that sometimes you can hear a slight almost clicking noise from the bottle, maybe air escaping from the nozzle or something. Anyway, I noticed that if you purse your lips around the nozzle and give a slight blow, it stops the noise.
Sign of poor construction? Dud? No idea but I'm disappointed because I had it in my mind that these were THE 'premium' cycling bottles
DO NOT however use it with protein powder (as I did with another one of these) - no matter how much you clean it (even with taking the valve out and soaking) any water still tastes gross.
