Taste the Chill on-the-go.

There's nothing like some freezing water to refresh yourself while you're running or biking under a hot sun, and the Camelbak Podium Big Chill Water Bottle makes sure your water stays cold for a long time. Its BPA-free TruTaste polypropylene material is safer to drink out of than polycarbonate plastics and it won't distort your water's taste, and HydroGuard insulation keeps your beverage chilled twice as long as regular sports bottles. The Jet Valve cap is spill-proof and self-sealing so you can squeeze some deliciousness down your gullet quickly and get back to what you were doing.

My Favorite Bottle

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These bottles can definitely take a beating. They are tough, very well insulated, and I have had no issues with cleanliness of the nozzle system. (I got a small cold on a hiking trip in Arkansas and even threw some Airborne tablets in my Camelbak bottle to ward off the cold. After rinsing out the bottle it didn't hold the strong medicine flavor at all!)

Sporty Spice

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great water bottle with an awesome sports nozzle. Quick and easy to grab a quick spray on the climb. Also has a lock out feature if you are caring the bottle in a bag/pack so that it doesn't leak

The One Bottle

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is about the only bottle I use anymore. They're a good size, the nozzle is reliable and locks when I throw it in a bag, the insulation keeps cold water cold longer and hot water hot longer in winter. The bottles are durable and don't hold flavor when using electrolyte tablets. The only downsides are the the mouthpieces get dirty easily and can be noisy when it burps air. Camelbak has great customer service and has replacement mouthpieces as needed.

My current favorite bottles.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are currently my favorite bottles. They seem to keep water cooler on long rides, and they come in lots of colors. I like the way the new nozzles work and how fast the water is able to come out. There are reports of people having cleanliness issues, but I personally haven't had this. It might be because I don't use super sugary drinks (I use Skratch if not just water) and I promptly clean them when I get home. It would be nice if you could take the nozzle apart to clean, but I don't know any bottles that let you do this. So pretty much all water bottles suck when it comes to cleaning the lids.

awesome bottle

Things I look for in a water bottle:

Doesn't Leak - Check
Correct Size to fit in bike cages - Check
Holds a decent amount of water for an hour ride - Check
Easy to Drink out of one handed - Check


quality bottle

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Have several of these bottles in the smaller size, so it was nice to get a larger one. I prefer the older model with the all rubber top for running, but this one does the job.

Great, a bit snug against frame at top

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Used some electrical tape on my frame to protect against rubbing

CamelBak Water Bottle

    I use this water bottle for when I am riding my bike. It keeps the drink cold and doesn't leak. Great product for a great price.

    Great bottle

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Keeps drinks cool, not slippery, nice graphic and good valve.

    Great bottle!

      I love it, I use it for bike rides or when I run.

      Keeps it cold and fits in the stroller

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I bought this bottle because it is the perfect shape for the drink holder in my stroller. I wasn't sure about the insulation claim, but after testing I can confirm that it keeps the liquids cold! I like the spout as well. You can squeeze it to dispense and rotate a lever to close so it won't leak if it is in a bag.

      Excellent Bottle

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      On Hot summer days, it is really nice to have your water stay cool a bit longer. The Valve system on the Camelbak bottles means not having to open and close them with my teeth which is an added perk. The insulated bottles are not quite as easy to squeeze as the non insulated version but the added effort is worth the cooler water reward. I like to fill a bottle half way and freeze them the night before, this has worked to keep ice cold water flowing a couple hours into a ride in 90 degree temps.

      Just like it's little brother, this is my favorite of squeeze bottles in the market. Love the insulation and the seal. Leaky bottles are the worst, and I've never had that problem with this line.

      It's a water bottle, not rocket science. Pick the size that fits your cage and you won't be disappointed with this one.

      great water bottle

        works well in the summer and is a good size.

        Great Water Bottle

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Getting frustrated with my Hydro Flask leaking, I went in search of another water bottle. Several people recommended the CamelBak Podium Big Chill Water Bottle. It has lived up to their recommendations. It doesn't keep water as cold as the hydro flask nor can you put hot drinks in it, but it DOESN'T leak.

        The best

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This is the best cycling water bottle. First perfect in bottle cages. It doesn't keep water as cool as i would have hoped, but anything helps on a warm day.

        good all-around water bottle

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This water bottle fits in car cup holders and bike bottle holder. It is leakproof (if you tighten the lid well) and spill proof. Keeps your water colder than a single wall bottle.

        Go to bottle

          Love the podium chill. I buy it over and over

          Solid Water Bottle

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          My husband and I both love this water bottle. The pressure and flow are great, and it's never leaked. The insulation is just okay, and the water is never super cold. My husband can run with it easily, but my hands are too small to keep a good grip during more rigorous activities. It fits well in all of our cup holders, and it's easily thrown in all of our bags. Overall, it's a solid choice.
