CamelBak Podium Big Chill 25oz Bottle
CamelBak Podium Big Chill 25 oz is a high performance insulated sport bottle that keeps your water cooler longer. A double-walled bottle construction uses closed cell foam technology to keep your water cold twice as long as a standard bottle. The patented spill-proof, self-sealing Jet Valve allows the user to hydrate immediately without having to open or close a drinking interface and the bottle’s streamlined ergonomic design offers excellent squeezability without compromising bottle grip. The large aperture of the drinking nozzle generates an exceptional water flow rate and is easy to remove for thorough cleaning. The Podium Chill also has a lockout dial with easy to read graphics for leak-proof transport.
The best attributes of a CamelBak bottle are their squeeze-ability and the jet valve. The insulative properties aren't particularly good. I think any light colored opaque bottle would work just as well.
I bought three of these, and I have enjoyed using them. An excellent feature is the lockout around the spout. Also, it has a good seal around the top when you put it on. I would definately recommend this bottle.
Very pleased on how long this water bottle keeps liquid cold. I ride in hot weather up to 100 degrees and if you do too. I think you would be happy worth the results.
I have always been the guy with the cheapest, even the free give-away, water bottles. I finally broke down and purchased one of these CamelBak Podium Big Chill water bottles. I absolutely love it! So easy to drink from while riding. Keeps my drinks cool nice an long as well.
I am a cyclist and, yes, I absolutely 100% agree with everyone here who has stated that this bottle is PERFECT for Cycling and Mountain Biking. The bottle fits great with the various bottle cages I’ve used on my bikes and on bikes I’ve rented. NO ISSUES with bottle cage fitment. A nice accessory for mountain bikers is the CamelBak Mud Cap designed for this bottle. It keeps the dirt out of the valve! Where we’ve had more fun with the Podium Chill bottles is out on the boat. The Spill-Proof Jet-Valve works AWESOME when not in the Locked feature, which is a brilliant idea…Thanks CamelBak! Because we don’t have to worry about spilling, we fill these up completely with as much ice as we can fit into the bottles, then add our fun river / lake beverages. We fill up as many bottles as we can take, usually three per person, so we can save more room for ice and food in the coolers. It gets up to 114 degrees out on the Mojave River and these bottles keep our drinks cool, even when floating with us in the water. PROS: + They Float on the water + Lockout Feature to prevent spilling + Spill-Free even when unlocked + Keeps drink cool for 1-2 hours in 114 degree weather + Fits almost any Bottle Cage + Durable if dropped (over and over again) + Jet-Valve delivers just the right amount of fluid CONS: - Make sure to keep valve open / unlocked if washing in Dish Washing Machine - Jet-Valve takes some effort to clean - May need Q-Tips if you want to prevent mold from building up in Jet-Valve At the end of the day, the Podium Chill Bottle is an awesome product for any athlete or party-goer!!
I have 2 of these and they are amazing. I like ice cold water so I fill it with ice and regular bottles condensate and get me wet when I drink this bottle is insulated so it doesn't condensate and kept ice water in my bottle for almost 7 hours.
