Camelbak Better Bottle
Advantages: Brilliant for hydration - a must for all
Disadvantages: I can't think of one
My boyfriend bought this for me as a liitle present, very thoughtful! For this reason I cant comment on the price of this item however I will rave about the excellent preformance of this item!
My bottle is pink and looks very funky and stylish. It was bought for me as I was changing job roles and needed to make sure I remained hydrated throughout my shift.
This item does this brilliantly. I had been getting head aches from not having enough water intake whilst at work and so needed something.
I had started using normalplastic bottles which had had bought water or fizzy drinks in them but found they tatsed the water after a while and I lost them as they were just a water bottle. Also I kept losing the tops to bottles and then had to through them out.
This bottle changed it all. It is a lovely sturdy design and holds 750ml of liquid. The material is nice and thick and so feels sturdy and durable in your hands.
The top has a screw on lid with a wide opening so filling the bottle is easy and the lid has a rubber sel around the top so once you screw it tightly it is really water tight.
The mouth part is a bite valve the same as is found in the Camelpac bladders. The straw goes right to the bottom and is quite wide so a lot of fluid can be sucked up each time.
The bite valve mechanism is a great invention and does make you drink more. I like using these when out walking and so when I saw this had the same valve was very happy with it.
I try to drink three full bottle of water per shift and this bottle really makes this easy. I have found that since using this item I have remained hydrated at work and no longer leave work with a headache and feeling exhausted.
I would say that these bottles dont pack too well into a rusksack if you are trying to travel light. A Camelpac Bladder is better as these end up as a flat bag when empty and so do not take up space. However to take to work, around the house or at the gym these are brillaint and I really can not say how much they have transformed my working day.
The importance of hydration for a clear mind is so great and this really solves the probem. The funky colours make the bottle distinguishable too and everyone in my department know it is mine if I leave it lying around!
