User Review: CamelBak Podium Big Chill 25oz

Best water bottle I've ever had.
- Jet valve
- Can't clean the valve?
I love this bottle more than anything. I have been through countless water bottles and I would give any one one of these.
The water in the bottle stays nice and cold even after hours outside. I am a room temperature water drinker, but if it is particularly hot, I will throw some cubes in and I know it will still be cool.
My favorite time to use this bottle is when I'm riding on my road bike. The jet valve is fantastic because if I'm having a hard ride, I don't really have the energy to suck water from the bottle. With this one I don't have to, I can just squeeze it gently.
I also like the Camelbak auto lock on the top. I can lock off the valve so that if I throw it in my pack, I won't have damp things. There are not many bottles that can attest to that.
I've been using this for over a year, and I if I am doing a high intensity activity, it is my go-to 100%. It also comes in smaller sizes and I have one of each.
