User Review: CamelBak Better Bottle .75 Liter
Price Paid: $12
I am an athlete on the go....I'm in Cross Country, Wrestling, and Track and this bottle has stood up to a long Cross season with a lot of abuse and has so far stood up to this years wrestling season.
This bottle is tough, yet I consider it a "luxury bottle" since it is so nicely constructed. I am extremely tough on it, and the only sign of age is a small plastic piece has broken off the bite valve thingy that helps you pull up the bite valve (kind of a pain, but my abuse was most likely the reason for its break).
I used this bottle EVERYDAY during Cross season since I needed to stay hydrated during the day (an average 2 liters per school day). I really love the loop for carrying, it is perfect for the crook of my finger, and it can be clipped via a carabiner to anything.
During wrestling I need to watch how much water I consume and again the Camelbak Better Bottle is BETTER. I can see how much I have drank and it restricts chugging....brilliant.
I caught the trailing/backpacking bug this past summer and I have yet to use my bottle on a trip but I am sure it would service just fine.
BUY THIS BOTTLE NOW, you will not regret. (I think the .75L size is just right, but if i was to buy again I might go with the bigger 1L version just because of the small price increase and added capacity, but if you are going to be filling this at a water fountain like @ school this would be the max size and you can't even fill it entirely from the school type water fountain).
