CamelBak New Podium 24oz Bottle
The CamelBak Podium Bottle incorporates Jet Valve, a revolutionary self-sealing valve into a taste-free bottle with a high flow rate. Which is one of the many reasons this bottle is the official bottle for the pro cycling team Garmin-Sharp-Barracuda. The team uses Podium bottles in training and during races.
I've put this bottle through the ringer and it's stood up to the abuse. I also really like the locking mouthpiece. Perfect if you don't want to lose any fluids whether you're out on the trail, on a hike, or heading to class.
Great Bottle, not ideal for use with nuun/ carbonated electrolyte tablets. Valve accumulates some of the pressure before releasing a randomly timed spray.
Got two of these for the lady since they fit the size difference between small and large water bottles. They go well with a small women's tri frame, but work equally well in her small MTB frame. The valve is good although not a huge flow rate. Note that this bottle is not transparent, it is solid white so be careful if you plan on putting anything with coloring in it as it may stain.
The CamelBak Podium is a great water bottle. The valve is awesome, doesn't leak (and can be locked shut if needed), and delivers as much as water as I want (much better than the bite valves on the hydration pack). It's great on the bike, at the gym, or on picnics with the kids. Speaking of kids, this makes an awesome water bottle for them, as it is easy for them to drink from and it won't spill or make a mess when they leave it lying around the house. My only complaint is that the bite valve is a little difficult to clean, especially out on the trail if mud gets flung up into it. Other than that, it's the best!
My go-to water bottle. if I lay it on the car seat while driving to a ride, it does'nt leak.
