I love these bars, I get them whenever they go on sale at local camping supply stores. I was excited to get a 12 pack from backcountry.com; when they arrived, the packaging has a bit of wear on it (not the shipping box, but the thing cardboard box in which the bars are placed (like, at a retail checkout line area), but the bars themselves were in tact.Unfortunately, when I bit in to one, it tasted funky. I tried two more before chalking the shipment up to a loss, and tossing the pack. Oh well, I guess you shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth.EDIT: A few weeks ago, I received a package from a representative of this company. They sent a replacement box, and samples of their other products.The replacement tasted just like it should have!2 stars to 5

The blue bite valve has a clear covering over it. The space in between them is a breeding ground for mold/mildew.And before anyone starts commenting, I've only ever used water with my platypus bottles/tubes, and I usually keep them stored in the fridge when they aren't in use.Great idea, poor execution.

Also, the valve itself requires a bit of "finesse" to it- you can't just chomp down, you have to delicately pinch at just the right amount of pressure.

Can this actually be used as a poncho? I.E does it have a hood/arm holes/etc
Will it survive a light shower? What about a downpour?
Thanks!
