    Easy to replace

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Always nice having a spare on hand. Whether it's from a dog chewing this up in the backseat or having the moutpiece sitting in something nasty when putting your pack on the floor, it's nice to be able to pull a new one out and pop it on. Easy to sip through and has good water flow

    Good to have a spare.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are reliable and seem to work very well. There is good water flow when needed but then no drip when you are not using it. Simple product but kind of a pain when one of these go missing.

    As Intended

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Good replacement piece. Fits as should, and good to have extras. Cheaper than in the store, and free shipping if your order more with backcountry too!

    My last one lasted 13 years

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Eventually they wear out. By eventually I mean 13 years in my case. For $.45 per year, I'm fine replacing this every once in a while. Works great, same great quality.

    Perfect replacement.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought this the replace the torn up and shredded valve on my 6 year old bladder. It's a perfect fit, and seems to be even better than the original. If you need it, get it!

    Simply Necessary

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    It's one of those items that you need to have working properly. I just replaced my bite valve because it was cut and leaking all over the place. Simple replacement and I'm ready to roll again. Perfect fit as always.

    Replace it

      They don't last forever, but think about the torture you put it through. You bite it, pull it on and off to clean it, toss it in the back of your truck for a week in the hot sun or freezing cold. It's best to have the mindset that this is a consumable part.

      Replace it

      Good Mouthpiece

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These work really well. Water flows well when you want, they don't drip (too much) when you don't. They do not last forever, but they are also 6 dollar pieces of rubber so that is kind of what I expect.

      Decent durability

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Picked up a couple of these to replace the aging bite valves on reservoirs that my wife and I use pretty regularly. I'm happy with how long these last before starting to get funky or leak - we had one that started to leak after about 4 years and another that fell victim to an over-zealous rodent on a recent backpacking trip. These are easy enough to clean - I usually just rinse with hot water, only occasionally use soap, and make sure to take them off the hose to fully dry. I've gotten mildew in them on occasion, but a quick flush with soapy water takes care of it. They have a bit of a rubber taste when brand new but I've found that it wears off after a couple uses.

      My brothers Big Bite Mouthpiece broke after a few years of extended use and needed a replacement so I got him this one. Works great! Put some "special" lube on the hose and let it slide right into the mouthpiece and let it dry. ;)

      It dun broke

        I had a camelbak for several years with the bite valve and it worked great for a few but right as I hitting the trail a while back it broke. It kinda cracked in half like it had been soaked then dried one too many times. not sure if I didn't follow some sorta maintenance thang, but anyways I recommend a valved mouth piece. PS it leaks after a while as well.

        Can this mouthpiece fit the Nathan Sports...

        Can this mouthpiece fit the Nathan Sports Intensity race vest? I am reading differing tubing diameters appears that my Nathan tubing is 10 mm OD (eyeing it w/ a ruler)...but I've read CamelBak's tubing is smaller. Can you verify that this mouthpiece will fit 10 mm OD tubing? And has anyone successfully used this on a Nathan Sports race vest?

        Best Answer

        Lindsey, I put a Camelbak valve on the tube of my Nathan HPL #020 hydration vest and it works great. I just pulled it off an older Camelbak reservoir I had when the Nathan valve broke. (The Nathan valve is a DAKINE valve and, in my opinion, is pretty worthless.) The Camelbak valve I put on was not the Big bit valve. It was one with an insert that slides into the tube. It works great so I am guessing the inside diameters of the Nathan and Camelbak must be pretty close - close enough that the Camelbak valve fits snuggly with no issues.

        I just bought a new camelbak 750ml bottle...

        I just bought a new camelbak 750ml bottle with the flip valve. When I took off the plastic on the bit valve I see that the bite valve has no slit... is this a defect that commonly happens? Am I supposed to cut this myself? I dont' have the receipt and already took off and threw away the tags, washed it and filled it with water before I notice so not sure I can return it now.

        I have a question. How much is this product?...

        I have a question. How much is this product? Can I buy it on this site? And where can I find a pck of like 5 of these? I can only find singles and they are $6.00 and that seems like a lot of money for 1 Mouthpiece.


        Is the mouth piece screwed on?

        Just presses on. Use a drop of dish soap as a lubricant and it'll slide right on easily. Rinse out the valve and tubing with some warm water when you're done to remove any excess...totally safe, dries completely, and no slimy residue or lasting taste at all.

        How do you get CalmelBak big bite valve...

        How do you get CalmelBak big bite valve mouthpiece "on"?? On the tube? or 90-degree bend in CamelBak's Ergo HydroLock? I've tried to push the mouthpiece on the tube and the 90-degree bend, dry and wet. But it will not work. I've tried twisting the bite on the tube....but it seems it will not work. How do you put on the mouthpiece on?

        Best Answer

        I had to work with mine for a while and after a lot of frustration and a couple of big, deep breaths I just wiggled and twisted it enough to get it on there. They're great once they are on but they can be a pain in the hiney to get into position. Keep in mind that it won't work directly on the tube.

        i have a camelbak cloudwalker hydration...

        i have a camelbak cloudwalker hydration pack and have lost the mouth piece. Will this mouth piece fit on that kind of hydration pack?

        Best Answer

        Unless you have a different kind of hydration bladder and tube, this mouthpiece will fit any standard Camelbak tube. If the Cloud Walker pack you got was new and came with a Camelbak bladder, this will work for what you need.
