This is probably my 8th set that I have purchased. Im posting this to show others how to clean the top part. If you use anything other than water in them (especially with sugar content) they will get nasty pretty quick if not kept clean. Even with only water use they can tend to get moldy over time, especially in humid climates.
The molded rubber piece can be pulled off the top part of the bottle cap. Once you pull it off you will see that there is a plastic insert that goes into the rubber piece. Pull this out to clean it. It takes a little bit of ‘rolling’ the plastic piece to seperate it from the rubber top. Once you do it youll see what I mean. It gets easy once you get the hang of it.
If the pieces are moldy, sometimes it tends to collect under the 4 slotted spaces in the plastic insert. You can usually use a toothpick or small pointy object to clean the crud out of this area. If you need a real good cleaning let them sit in vinegar over night and it makes it easier to rinse everything out.
Make sure you dont lose the small o-ring on the bottom of the plastic insert. That needs to be snugged up tight on the insert before you slip it back into the rubber molded piece.
Once you cleaned the insert and rubber piece slip the insert back into the rubber. Make sure its correctly seated, the cylindrical tube should be pointed straight down. Then you have to work the rubber piece (with insert) back onto the top of the bottle. Roll it around to make sure it seats correctly. When the bottles are new it can take a little bit of work to get it seated correctly.
Doing this regularly will keep the top rubber drinking valve clean and good to use for a few years.
Ive attached some pictures for reference. Great bottles.

I know that this isn’t the general use case for this bottle, but I’m very thankful to CamelBak for improving my dad’s quality of life just a little.

Even though this is just for kids at school and not for someone training for an olympic event, this is still one of the best water bottles I’ve found. And I’ve tried them all over the years.
It would definitely be a five star product if not for the slow leak. We need it too badly to return, so I’m sticking with it.
This size just fits my full suspension bike (2013 Kona Satori, large frame). I like to carry as much as possible (not a hydration pack fan) and this is the biggest one that’ll fit.
If you’ve never tried CamelBak’s mechanism, it works great, doesn’t leak (even in the “open” position), and you can replace the valve without tossing the bottle. Overall, it’s the best bike bottle out there.

I like the power squirt feature to quickly fill you mouth to rinse/spit or drink. Easy to squirt over your head on those really hot days. The softer sides make it easy to control the amount of water you squirt into your mouth. No more biting the top to open/close the water valve like my old bottle with the Camelbak nozzle. I haven’t had any issues with the top spilling when unlocked during the ride. The bottles fit in our cheap $3 bike bottle holders very well with zero chance of bouncing out. I haven’t had any issues with plastic taste with this bottle. Since it holds ice a lot longer, no need to freeze 1/2 full of water the night before. Not planning on using this bottle for anything other than water to keep it fresh as possible for the long term.
