Description

A great leap forward for water bottle technology.

The Clean Bottle is the million-dollar idea we all wish we'd thought of. Instead, it was Dave. You may not know Dave, but if you've watched a Tour de France mountain stage in the last two years you've seen his alter ego, Bottle Boy, the oversized version of the Clean Bottle.

The Clean Bottle isn't rocket science, but it is ingenious. The 100% non-toxic, BPA-free Clean Bottle unscrews at both ends to make cleaning a breeze. Even the nozzle is removable, giving germs no place to hide once the scrub brush comes out. Each end of the bottle has a leak-proof silicone washer. And, feel free to stuff the 22 ounce bottle to the gills with ice and drink powders, the wide mouth makes it easy.

The Clean Bottle is dishwasher safe and guaranteed for life, and Dave even donates 10% of profits to eco-friendly charities. The Clean Bottle is available in White/ blue, White/ black, and Competitive Cyclist Racing Team colors and holds 22 ounces.

Leaky nozzle

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I get my drink all over my jersey/shirt, thanks to the crappy seal on the top around the nozzle. It lets it all out around the base and outside of the nozzle, rather than only from the center, in a stream, as I'd expect. When I first noticed, I ended wrapping my lips around the top as if it were a teat, to get a drink. Very uncool... after that, I just unscrewed the cap to drink.

Interesting design, but I still have to clean it about the same as any other bottle. It's a little faster, since I can use my hand from the bottom too, but there's no avoiding some work to get the slimy film off the inside of the bottle after filling it with energy drinks.

Works well. Some Quality control issues

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I would give this 5 stars, but the incoming quality of this product disappointed me. I ordered 2, and one of the bottles had a crooked bottom cap. Upon closer inspection, the threads on the bottle were actually formed in a way that the mating bottom piece did not screw on completely. This causes a leak. I immediately returned the bottle, and Backcountry's great customer service sent another bottle to replace it (can't say enough about how GREAT the customer service is!) The design is great! the execution should be too! Still, it is a novel idea and is awesome so you don't have to use snakes/brush tools to clean the bottle thoroughly!

**Disclaimer: you need to ensure that the caps on both ends are screwed on all the way so that the silicone gasket seals the bottle.

leaks

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

mine leaked from both top and bottom

cleaning ease

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

i picked up a couple of these and really like them. They hold plenty of beverage and both ends screw off for ease in cleaning. The wide mouth allows bigger brushes in for scrubbing.
Please make sure both ends are screwed on tightly as they will leak if not

So Fresh and So Clean

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Outkast new what they were talking about when they wrote that song about these water bottles. Flavors do not stick around in these guys. It is pretty great because before I had this bottle I was always a little weary about putting hydration mixes in my bottles. Screw the bottoms on tight though!

Clean Bottles are great!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Warning, make sure the bottoms are screwed on extra tight, they have been known to leak ever so slightly.

I love my clean bottles, Preventing bottle funk and making sure that your hydrating are important, and this solves both! Not to mention, I know a few guys who work for them, and they are all stand up cats. Support the little guy!

great

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

used it on my century ride last weekend and they worked great, holds plenty of water, and super easy to use.

The tip collapses

as soon as you put it to your mouth and want to drink from it the tip pushes in and you're not getting any water. Also, I have to agree that the bottle is too hard to squeeze. So between the top pushed in and the bottle too hard to squeeze you're not getting any water. And I bought two of these at some sporting store for hikers. I've yet to find a good water bottle that is easy to drink from, easy to hold and carry. I found the CamelBack bottle even harder to squeeze and drink from. Sheeeesh, just can't get a good drinking bottle any more!

double sided bottle! sometimes i forget that bottom comes off and try to wash it from the top. other reviews say hard to squeeze? they must have tiny weak hands... the plastic is super soft.
And yes, bottle has another logo on it..? it's a water bottle. who cares. drink water

Worst Bottle - EVER!

Despite the 5 star reviews, this bottle is tough to squeeze, making it non-functional for a majority of people. Not only that, it isn't pictured, but it sports a "POWERBAR" logo on the side behind the Competitive Cyclist logo - not cool! If this was a sponsored bottle being resold - totally uncool.

The removable bottom and "easy to clean" idea is a gimmick. There are tonnes of other better bottles out there. This isn't one of them. Will never ever buy again.

Worst Bottle - EVER!

Sponsored Bottle

This bottle has a Powerbar logo on the other side. Totally not cool which means it's a sponsored bottle and should not be for sale. And yes, hard to squeeze. Worst bottle - EVER!

Cool Bottle

I love that this bottle is double sided, makes it really easy to clean. Love the graphic. only complaint is the bottle is hard to squeeze.

Leak like crazy!

I bought 4 of these bottles. The promise of being able to clean them easily was the big draw. After washing 3 in the dishwasher (as prescribed) the never sealed on the bottom again. No matter how I tried to screw them on... they leak like crazy! 3 out of 4 -and the 4th one doesn't leak because I have never unscrewed the bottom. Save your money...

Easy to clean

Good bottle, not great. It's not the most pleasing taste, but it doesn't get the build up at the bottom like most bottles do. I still prefer a insulated bottle.

Great Bottle

Perfect size coupled with their innovative cleaning idea makes for a great road bottle. Two of these keep me well stocked with liquid for most of my rides.

Haven't had any issues with leaking, just make sure you put that bottom lid back on nice and tight and you'll be good to go.

2nd Round is better than before

The newest version of the clean bottle (Competitive Cyclist Racing Team) is softer than the old bottles and are easier to squeeze which was one of the few complaints with the previous versions. Personally I like the colorway with the black top and bottom way better than the blue.

Easy to clean

It's easy to clean. Good design.

recommended

nice to know your next drink is going to taste fresh. No more of that nasty stale water for me. Nice to be able to also wash out that bottle with your sport drink in it

Clean, clean, clean, clean

Just as the name implies, these are the only bottle to get if you use anything but straight water. Hell, I even use water 99% of the time and I still love them.

No funky flavors and they're safe in the freezer, just make sure you leave enough room for the water to expand and leave the mouthpiece open.

Clean is the name of the game

As you would expect from a water bottle named "Clean Bottle", this water bottle is very easy to clean after you've spent hours in the hot sun drinking energy liquids that coat the inside of your bottle like goo. Just screw off the top and bottom, clean with hot water and mild soap, and stick it on the drying rack for your next outing. Good as new.

One recommendation, which is the same for every water bottle: wash by hand. Dishwashers can get hot enough to melt the plastic
