People Drink More Water with CamelBak Bottles

We've been looking for reusable, durable stainless steel water bottles for kids - and adults - on the go. We think we've found a great one with CamelBak.

A global leader in personal hydration gear, CamelBak has created a stainless steel water bottle with a unique Big Bite Valve mouthpiece which allows non-tip sipping and won't spill, even when open. The mouthpiece system features a stem tube (straw) and shut-off valve. The stem and valve is all in one detachable piece
that's easy for to clean. On the kids' bottles, the cap is easy for small fingers to operate and the whole stem and straw system is child-safe.

A study conducted at California's Pepperdine University in 2009 revealed that participants drank up to 24% more water with CamelBak reusable water bottles than with other reusable and disposable bottles tested. This first-of-its-kind study tested the effects fo water bottle design on personal fluid consumption.

More study subjects preferred the CamelBak bottle, saying it was easier to use, easier to drink from, didn't spill even when open, and that teh bottle's Big Bite Valve mouthpiece was more fun to drink from. One participant noted, "The CamelBak is quick to open and easy to drink from without distracting myself from whatever else I'm doing."

Study subjects used each of the following four bottles for a two-week period:
  • reusable screw-cap plastic bottle
  • reusable screw-cap metal bottle
  • reusable screw-cap PET bottle
  • CamelBak Better Bottle with the Big Bite Valve mouthpiece.
With the CamelBak bottle, participants drank 24% more water than with the disposable bottle, 18% more water than with the reusable metal bottle and 15% more than with the reusable plastic bottle.

Dehydration is a significant health concern. The benefits of hydration include body temperature regulation, fat metabolism, cardiovascular support and improved focus, concentration and alertness. Even mild dehydration can affect physical and mental performance.

CamelBak stainless steel water bottles are exclusively available online in Canada at eco boutique Lavish & Lime. For boys, choose from pirate and dinosaur CamelBak designs. For girls there's mermaid CamelBak stainless steel bottles and butterfly water bottles.
