Camelbak (750ml) Better Bottle Review

5 Star RatingRating | Comments Disabled | Date: Feb 3rd 09

A couple of weekends back I took my Camelbak better bottle along when I went hiking with my kids. The design is just great, I had it hooked onto my belt with a carabiner clip and it wasn't intrusive at all. I was impressed by the no spill design, not a drop of water was spilt when my son knocked my bottle off the picnic table by mistake. The shell also seems to be quite durable, its apparently made out of shatterproof Lexan Polycarbonate.

Those who are health conscious will appreciate Camelbak's new manufacturing standards that ensure their water bottles are free of the dangerous chemical BPA also known as bisphenol A. This chemical is used in the manufacturing industry to harden plastic. Traces of BHA get leached into the water and when consumed cause hormonal disturbances in the body among a long list of other health hazards. For more information regarding the dangers of bisphenol A follow the links provided below.

A wide variety of Camelbak water bottles can be found online. At the camping surplus store that I frequent they only stock 3 models of Camelbak bottles. Over 8 models and 75 designs can be found in online stores. I decided to purchase the 750ml Camelbak Classic water bottle because it is very simple and suits my needs well. The stainless steel Camelbak bottle caught my eye but was running over double the cost of the classic. I may pick one up in the future if it goes on sale.

What impressed me most about my Camelbak water bottle was that it encourages water consumption. It's so easy to drink from I found myself drinking much more water than I ever did from a regular bottle. As an avid cyclist, hiker and outdoorsman I've been through many different water bottles and the Camelbak Better Bottle is by far the best I have ever owned. I couldn't be happier with it, I have bought them for friends and family as gifts and I highly recommend this product to everyone.
