Price Paid: $9
I use this during bike rides and when working outside around the house. No "bite" required, works very well while riding, squeezing the bottle produces good flow output.
I would give it a 5 however, the valve does not separate for cleaning, small rag works good to clean what can be. If you're a frequent grab and replace rider this may prove beneficial as the valve is not likely to fall off if banged on the frame or cage. There is a turn lever to shut water off which is convenient, particularly if I need to throw it in my pack for other activities.

Step up to the podium. The Camelbak Podium Bottle has an innovative self-sealing Jet Valve; that makes drinking on the go simple and fast. The self-sealing valve has a high flow rate and prevents spills, just squeeze and drink. The Poduim bottle is made from BPA and taste-free plastic. The Jet Valve keeps your bottle sealed and drip-free during use. The rotary valve under the nozzle on the cap is actually a secondary lock-out. We recommend using the lock-out exclusively for storage, i.e. if you're storing the bottle in a bike bag or trunk. Leave it open during rides or for easy access when you're drinking from the bottle.
