I loved the Camelbak Better Bottle when it came out. A water bottle with a straw was great. I could use it for just about anything. I did, howeve, have some durability issues with the bite valve assembly on the Better Bottle. Not a huge deal, just had to be careful not to break it off. With the Eddy water bottle, Camelbak appears to have solved that issue. Hats off to Camelbak!
