CamelBak New! Groove™ Water Bottle Review & Giveaway - Ends 8/18 CLOSED

Post by sunrae on Thu Aug 04, 2011 12:44 pm



The Company
AN IDEA BORN FROM THE MOST BASIC HUMAN NEED — THIRST

It's 1988.
Bicycle enthusiast, Michael Eidson, is competing in the "Hotter'N h*** 100." And that's exactly what it is: a 100-mile road race in the grueling summer heat of Wichita Falls, Texas. Water is vital to surviving the race, and there are few places to refill a water bottle. Eidson, an emergency medical technician by trade, decides to fill an IV bag with water and slip it into a white tube sock. Yes, a tube sock. Then he stuffs the contraption into the back of his bike jersey, throws the thin hose over his shoulder and clamps it with a clothespin.

Hands-free hydration is born. And Eidson is able to drink as he pedals...while the other racers laugh and fiddle with their water bottles.

It took courage, conviction and imagination to evolve from an IV bag in a tube sock sold by a motorcycle-driven sales force of one. Our core values remain the same and drive everything we do - from inventing the hydration category to becoming the world's leading maker of hydration solutions.

Oh yeah...about those bikers who laughed at Eidson? Well, chances are they've got a CamelBak strapped to their back or in their bike cage these days. Go figure...




The Review
I received the New! Groove™ .6L to review.

Provides great tasting, freshly filtered water anywhere – in the only reusable bottles designed and proven to help people stay better hydrated

  • Comes in a sleek, durable .6 liter bottle made of BPA-free Tritan plastic or stainless steel
  • Now available nationwide for a SRP of $25 (Tritan) and $35 (stainless steel)
  • Flip & Sip: Sip with ease, flip shut for storage and no spills with the patented CamelBak Big Bite™ Valve.
  • CamelBak® Got Your Bak Lifetime Guarantee™
  • Dishwasher safe

Drinking water from CamelBak® Groove™ is easy and fast. CamelBak® Groove™ employs Bite Valve technology - simply bite it slightly and sip as you would out of a straw. A recent study by Pepperdine University revealed that people who drink from CamelBak Bottles drink up to 24% more water than people who drink from other reusable bottles or plastic disposable bottles. So CamelBak® Groove™ is so easy to drink from that it can help you be better hydrated.



It was very easy to get it ready to use all you do is wash everything except the filter with warm soapy water then run the filter under the faucet for 15 seconds and assemble.

The bottle has a soft plastic mouthpiece from which you sip the water. At first I wasn’t sure about biting to drink but it only took a few times of use to get used to the bite valve piece. I love have fresh filtered water to drink at a moments notice.

The Fresh™ Filter is inside the straw (see picture above - it is the black cylinder). Each Fresh™ Filter is plant based and reliably reduces contaminants for 300 refills of the bottle, or approximately 3 months of use at 3 – 4 full bottles per day (48 gallons / 180 liters).

They have several bottle types, materials and accessories to choose from:

Bottles
EVERYDAY
SPORT / PERFORMANCE
KIDS

Materials
INSULATED
STAINLESS STEEL
BPA-FREE TRITAN
BPA-FREE TRUTASTE™

Accessories
RESERVOIR
CLEANING
BOTTLES



They also have CamelBak packs available for Bike, Outdoor, Run and Winter activities.

Buy these wonderful products online directly from their website or use their Store locaterto find a store near you.
