Product Review: Camelbak Podium Chill Bottle

Most of our customers are already familiar with Camelbak’s product, including their backpack style hydration systems and their bottles. A few years back Camelbak really revolutionized the sport hydration industry with things like the self-sealing “JetValve” and “TruTaste” polypropylene bottle material that provide spill free and good tasting hydration.

Water bottles are pretty simple, and there are only so many features you can engineer into a bottle, but Camelback actually gives us something to write about with their Podium Chill Bottle. In addition to the features mentioned above the Chill also has a nice and wide lid that allows you to easily add your favourite sports drink crystals to your water, and most importantly the bottle is insulated. In the cold conditions that we’re experiencing at the time of this posting it helps to keep your hot drink hot for a little longer, or keep your cold drink from freezing. We’re not saying that hot chocolate is going to be steaming after a long ride on a cold winter’s day but hey, every little bit helps.

Of course in the summer the bottle also keeps your cold drinks cooler a little longer. Not a bad idea. We have an assortment of Camelbak bottles, including the Podium Chill (just $17), in stock now.
