First, the Camelbak valve is really cool. You should buy a Camelbak bottle just for that. And the "Big" in "Big Chill" is important, because being able to carry 25 ounces is awesome. I go through that in 20 miles. But it doesn't keep stuff THAT cold. It certainly doesn't keep stuff cold for hours, but it does keep it colder than if it was in the sun. It's not bad, just don't expect COLD.
This is a great bottle for cycling or all around use. I ride my bike to school on some days and then just take this off my bike and throw it on the side of my backpack while at school. It keeps water cold and the top/nozzle thing is pretty cool.

I gave this to an avid cyclist for Christmas and he was thrilled. He's definitely a connoisseur of water bottles so I'm glad this one passed his test!
I have one of these and two in the 21 oz version. so far so good. they do keep your water/gatorade cool but only for about an hour or so in 95 degree weather; oh well, what can you do?
the valve lock feature has saved me from messing up by front teeth and having to visit the orthodontist.
also, i've had these for about three months and haven't had to wash them in the dishwasher; they have maintained a funk-free taste. I have used them for water, gatorade, and Skratch Labs.
Same bottle as the regular podium, slightly softer to handle, and keeps liquids marginally colder (Is that worth the price?).
BUT, there are softer *cough* (Specialized Purist) and the nozzle is a nuisance to clean when used with anything other than water, thus reducing the life of the bottle and possible growth spots for mold and funk.
The CamelBak Podium Big Chill Water Bottle - 25oz is a pretty good quality bottle with a more than capable insulation and a nozzle system that works really well while a bit noisy under different pressures. The size is also really good at 25oz as it even fits into most bike water bottle cages.
Feel free to mix hydration additives in as well, just be sure to wash it a bit in-between as it does not clean itself completely with water.
As everyone else has stated this is a great bottle. No leaks, keeps water cooler for a little longer than non insulated version and the shut off capable bite valve works great. Only issue I have found with this version is its length. If you are using this as a bottle for your bike cage, be aware that it is longer than the lower capacity version. If you don't have a lot of clearance in the middle triangle of your bike than this bottle might not fit, or be tough to grab when riding. Otherwise you can't go wrong with this product.
I love this bottle, it does a really decent job keeping liquid cold for a while. My only complaint is that if you squeeze it with a little extra 'umph' it'll leak from around the lid threads.
Here in Florida, I take this camelback bottle on all my long walks. Always keep my liquids cold. Very pleased.
My family loves the CB Podium Big Chill water bottle. I think we have 5 of them now. Insulation keeps the water cool longer and the water never picks up a bad or plastic taste. Best bottle I've tried - will probably buy a few more. No annoying leaks either.
This bottle does keep the water colder than a normal bottle. I bought two of these for biking. They defiantly work. I would recommend this too anybody, that wants a bottle that keeps your water cool. Defiantly a good buy.
Kept water cold for much longer than our metal bottles. No change in taste. We use well water at home, and bottled water on trips. Handy and light. Easy to drink from the bottle. Took it to Glacier NP a few weeks ago.
nice bottle, ergonomically designed so to speak ( it feels nice to hold)...and it truly does keep your water cooler for a longer period of time. i use it at the gym or rock climbing and after an hour session, it still feels like it came right out of the fridge
