Camelbak Fanatic

I am a brand loyalist. I will stick to a brand and keep buying products from the brand until the brand starts disappointing me. For instance, I used to be Nike loyalist, all my T-shirts, shoes and whatnot must be Nike, no other competing brands. 

I got to know Camelbak when I begun my cycling life 13 months ago (Wow! Time flies!). The first Camelbak product I bought was a hydra bag...


I start liking the brand for its built quality and durability. Since then I start looking for its other products and now look at my Camelbak collection...


From cycling bottle Podium Big Chill to Eddy 1L. Even the kids in the house love Camelbak so much and start fighting for my bottle, I have to buy the Eddy Kids one for each! They love it so much! LoL.

Look at its main feature...


Some may say it's just another plastic bottle and what so fancy about it. Yeah, almost all bottles on the shelf are BPA free nowadays. The key feature is "one-handed" or ease of drinking...



 Let's compare this bottle of a long-life brand T before I explain...


Imagine you're driving, which bottle will be practical? I don't have to flip my head up or tip the bottle to drink and I don't have to worry about spilling (the product is spill-proof) while I have one hand still on the steering wheel and eyes on the road. Safer? :)

Yeah, there are some similar products on the shelf but can you find replaceable parts like the valves and straws easily? No worries for Camelbak, a full page of accessories and spare parts.

Hygiene is also my consideration especially for the kids. The straws and rubber valves can be taken off for a thorough wash...



The same tool and cleanser for baby bottle can be used to wash Camelbak. Worse, just replace the parts.

That's how I turn myself into a Camelbak fanatic. Hehe... I think Camelbak will be "the brand" that I look for bottles in the long future. Don't dissapoint me ya, Camelbak! :)
