Anyone know how much replacement filters cost?
These things are great. I've got a couple for when I go hiking. Drop them off the mountain, and when you get the the bottom, they're alright. Tough little water bottles!
Seems like a great deal -- Amazon is selling this for over $16 for one bottle.
I LOVE these filtered water bottles. They make my life so much easier living as a college student where I'm too poor to buy bottle water and no time to fill up a Brita Water Filter.
Wow, I have one of these and I love it. Usually $25 EACH, so this is a great deal. Gonna have a hard time passing them up, just wish they came in different colors because the one I own is this exact color (now discontinued, probably why woot has them).
Edit: Since it's Earth Day, would the woot gods please combine my shipping fees and the actual shipping of these plus the batteries? It would really help my carbon footprint....
A good price for a 2-pack. Amazon has these for about $15 per one bottle.
Here's some reviews too. Just remember, you have to bite the valve to get the water out.

Bear Grylls drinks it straight.
Retail price is $10 for 2 or $25 for 6. I've gotten them cheaper from Amazon though.
Can these be filled up from the Rain Wizard Rock Barrel?
You can catch the filters (and the spout piece at the top that you squeeze with your teeth) on sale at Target every so often as well.
Pretty good price, especially since its $25 for one on the Product website!

Potable water only...you need a different filter to decontaminate water.
I have filtered tap water and therefore wouldn't really need the filters... do these still work okay without them?
I'm kinda just looking for a nice big water bottle with a straw and this looks like it might fit the bill.
I never could understand paying for bottled water. I always buy water reusable bottles with built in filters. Not only saves money, but reduces waste.
Dang! I just paid $20 at my campus bookstore for one - and it didn't even include a filter. It did have the campus logo on the side, though. Wonder how long that'll take to wear off...
Not everyone loves it.
I bought it then realized that apparently it only makes it taste better, it doesn't actually filter any impurities. Oh well.
Also note you need to bite the straw to get any water, which is good or bad depending on what you want. It helps keep it spill proof.
Camelbaks are probably one of the most reliable water bottles. I have been using them for years without problems! Go ahead and make your purchase, you won't regret it!
Nice review here:
I had the bottle like this, sans the filter, for a few years. Similar to this one
And it was awesome for a while. I didn't mind the bite valve system, but something about it; it sometimes made a mess. Like the pressure in it would cause it to squirt, maybe just like in a juice box when you blow into it, it comes back out at you. But then it also started leaking, and I never discovered if it was from a miniscule crack in the bottom or what, but I tossed it. It was very durable up til then.
The price on these is great though. I happened to see these at Target today and I'm pretty sure it was $15 at least for just one.
The price is good but the bpa free is what pushed me over the purchase line.

Yes they do. I have one and have never used the filter. I've used it with tap water and water fountain water and it works. The filter just drops/screws into a spot in the straw. If you don't have the filter it's ok. If you use the filter and it's past it's prime, it's ok. It's a great water bottle.
I have 2 Camelback groove water bottles and I love them. In fact, I loved them so much each of my friends rreceived one as a Christmas gift. In this day and age of over use of plastic bottles and reuination of our ecology it is our duty to limit waste. I purchase filters twice a year on Amazon.com, change the filter about once every 3 months. Do not place anything but water in these bottles, the filter is not meant to handle anything else. I even bought the smaller sizes for my grandchildren, they do not come with filters as they use it for their juice. We use Filtered water pitchers for our teas and coffee, but the camelback bottles go every where with us. I even use it when traveling abroad although I suggest you boil all water first and cool to room temp or in a refrigerator. The price is phenomenal at 14.99 for 2, I paid 19.99 for one. I am ordering 3 sets for my future use and for gifts. Being aware of wasteful water bottles and BPA, not to mention that water in a bottle has an expirration date, you do not know how long water has remained on store shelves, what temperature changes it has been exposed to or the safety of the container. This way, I know my water is from a fresh source.
Okay -- Now I get it. This contraption doesn't filter the kind of impurities you might find in water from a stream or spring, but it filters the stuff that makes potable water taste bad. So in that respect it is potentially more useful than a plain ole "regular" water bottle, but it wouldn't be particularly useful for backpacking if you're looking for something to filter water that's not from a tap.
Rather defeats the purpose not using the filter, you can buy a sturdy water bottle with a straw that is BPA free for about 5.00, why buy a Camelback? The filter is the purpose. Fresh tasting water is so much better than unfiltered tap water which can contain too much flouride, chlorine and even trace amounts of lead.

It wouldn't be more useful than any ole "regular" water bottle, but it looks like it would be more difficult to use and harder to clean. It wouldn't be particularly useful for backpacking. I get filtered tap water from my refrigerator, and I can just fill up a simple ordinary water bottle with filtered water. At work we have "water coolers" with the ginormous bottles of filtered water. I can fill up a cup or a water bottle with that water. I just don't get it. What's the point of this thing?
Yes, it filters impurities if you buy the filters. I do not get people who use it without the filter, seems like a waste of money. I have owned 2 over a three year period and I buy them as gifts becasue I know what is in tap water. It is very easy to clean and the bite valves are replaceable should you need a new one. It comes apart in 3 pieces, pop it in the dishwasher or hand wash. What could be simpler?
This is probably a good price for the CamelBak name, but I got a double-walled water bottle with a straw at wally-world for $4.99 and actually really like it. It doesn't leak, it has a hard plastic straw the kids don't have to bite (choke hazard, and a pain to keep changing). No filters to change either, and it doesn't sweat. Going to stick with that one.
We have a well, so the water doesn't have all those additives. It still comes filtered out of the fridge, though. So I don't need one on the bottle too.

It is rather bulky if all you want is a bottle to pour filtered water into. Very expensive for that purpose. They are heavy and sturdy and the filter is the functionality. We use Camelback products for everything, including the water bags they make with filters that we use for bike rides or hiking. Go to the dollar store and purchase a BPA free water bottle, you will save the money. Camelback is known for their marvelous filtering system.

yeah stuff like fluoride and minerals your body needs..... im with you lets get all this healthy crap outa our tap water!
I like the straw myself because I find it easier to drink from, for myself and the kids too. Especially if you're driving, so you're not having to tip your head back so far to drink when the bottle gets low. Easier while hiking or biking for the same reason. (Though when we're hiking we use our CamelBak water packs.) And the kids aren't dumping water on themselves if the lid isn't secured. Or maybe that was the point...
And I hate the vast majority of aluminum water bottles that have the removable lid. What do you do with the lid while you're drinking? The lid always seems to escape once it's freed. And the kids are all the time dumping water on themselves from those, because it's hard to gauge how much is in there, and they get too much.
I have one just for home without the filter and love it. That Youtube video posted was strange. Mine isn't hard to "open". Maybe it has loosened up. Why would you want to drink it sideways? I'm not worried about purifying water from a stream. I'm not sure a water bottle is supposed to do that.
You have to bite the pacifier (great feature, very comforting) to get the water out. Makes it spill proof which is good for when it falls off the coffee table or whatever it's on. Or if you close it no water comes out at all.
I have a nice orange one. I don't like the color of these but most people like blue and it's very subtle. Compared to the ancient one I used to have that was regular plastic, these are night and day difference and I have the peace of mind that I'm not drinking some sort of plastic that's going to kill me for sure.
I originally fell in love with the design two years ago when I bought my uninsulated stainless one. It was great. I traveled a lot for work and forgot it at home one time. That is when I bought the second one, it was insulated. The issue with squirting that people have posted about is due to temperature change. If you leave the water in the straw, as that water, warms up, it expands. Because it is suctioned in the straw, the pressure in the straw builds up. It will leak if this happens, or squirt if the mouthpiece is squeezed. The easiest way to avoid this is to squeeze the mouthpiece once you're finished drinking so that the water goes back down, out of the straw. Since I started doing this, I have had no problems with squirts, leaks or getting a mouthful of warm water for my first sip when I'd go back to drink more.
In for 3. My friends will love these as much as I do.
I own a lot of CamelBak bottles (including a graphite version of this one). Some things to note:
Amazon has 6 filters for $18.50 (each filter is supposed to last about 3 months).
