Hello H\A!

So I want to buy a cambelbak bottle to take to music festivals. Does anyone have any experience with one of these? It needs to perferibly be about the diameter of a waterbottle, or slightly larger so it can fit in my runnur. I also want to get a hands free-kit. Do they work well?

    camelbak makes a quality product that you have to pay a premium for. To me it was worth it.

    Just a note--if you're planning on putting something other than water in it, you'd do well to invest in the cleaning kit so you can clean the tube and whatnot.

    I was pretty happy with my camelbaks.

    Thought I'd post this here since I don't want to risk you missing it in chat.

    Quid, did you notice any adverse effects from putting Crystal light in a camelbak?

    Every time he finished with them we'd flush them out with water. But even doing that you eventually need to use the kit to do a more through job. But no, it only became an issue if you didn't do anything and then you ended up with gunk all over inside of it.

    I won't use anything but camelback podium water bottles for cycling. Great product.

    Thanks quid, I think i've decided to go for the .5 liter Stanless steel one. It's a little pricey, but I'm willing to splurge for a quality product.

    If the plastic fittings or the hose pick up the flavour of whatever you're putting in the bottle, you can generally get rid of it by soaking them in a sodium bicarbonate solution.

    Note that this is not a substitute for cleaning.

    Camelbaks are lifesavers on long climbing and hiking trips

    Can you bring water bottles/baks to festivals?

    I thought most places banned bringing in outside drinks?

    I read the best way to clean it is with Vinegar, any experience with this?

    Dude, what festivals have you been going to? Wakarusa, Bonnaroo, and All good all have similar rules about Sealed waterbottles or empty camelbaks being allowed into the concert area (and even thats losely enforced). You would die if you didnt bring your own food and drinks to these sort of things and I know Bonnaroo even has a filtered water station so you dont have to deal with the well water taste. The only festival that seems to have restirctions on it is Coachella, and serious, Fuck coachella.
