Does anyone use Camelbak for their own designs any more? Everyone seems to either use Specialized (leaky) or Elite (weirdly squishy). Also like the fact that you can actually buy replacement caps in the UK.
Camelbak bottles do not fit Elite bottle cages, as I just discovered. As you say, those Elite bottles are weirdly squishy. I like them.
Still using 10 year old SIS and Torq bottles. Not ashamed.
Yeh been using podium bottles for years. They are great.
Love the Podium too (as does my wife who loses them at the gym on a far too regular basis)
Can't even look at a Camelbak bottle without retching since my mate offered me a drink from his as I'd forgotten my bottle (this is pre-covid obvs) and I was about to accept when I noticed the top was all caked in some sort of mouldy old gunk.
The newer camelbak lids are a lot easier to clean. You can disassemble the valve and stick it all in the dishwasher.
They're the only bottle that I have found which has an effective mud-shield for the nozzle, so I use them exclusively.
Yeah and then it's really difficult to remember what way round the little rubber and plastic bits go.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
