Very cool stuff, I did not try its isolating feature but the head is very advanced for a biker. I also use it as a school bottle.
I love these bottles, perfect for any type of exercise. The most important bit for me is that they keep my drink cold. No one likes a warm sport drink right! The size is perfect for me as hydration is my number one issue when training, I love the valve as well as its so easy to use and they are super easy to clean.
Great Bottle. Keeps water cold and ice does not melt as fast
These are great. Water + ice = cool drinks for hours.
Great drinks bottle at the best price on the net. I bought two to take advantage of the free postage. I use these for kite surfing and they keep my water chilled all day on a sunny beach providing I pop a couple of ice cubes in to start with.

Ideal size for 40-50km tours without refilling. If water is ice cold it keeps cold 1 hour. Locakble valve system best in the class, fast and spill-proof drinking. Highly recommended for serious roaders. If you want longer insulation, I recommend ice model but it is a bit overpriced.
Still the best bottle nozzle out there - delivers on demand. These 750mm bottles are quite big - presumably they've had to lengthen the bottle to get the same capacity out of a narrower internal diameter because of the insulation. Unless you really need the extra capacity, the smaller bottles may be a better option.
Keeps your drink nice and cool for the duration of your long haul rides.
Don't hesitate. Great bottle, squeeze system is a winner, no drips
Great bottle, that keeps contents cool, is leak proof and easy to drink from, NB: Please pay attention to the bottle dimensions as the insulation means it is taller than most and could be too large to fit in a cage on a smaller sized frame, indeed its slightly too large to fit on the seat post mounted cage on a 55cm frame.
Camelbak quality and real world reliability. Great at keeping liquids colder than regular bottles and the nozzle is so much more user friendly.
Not a lot can be said about a bottle but Camelback do make a quality product. I have bought their products for 20+ years & never been disappointed.
Great leak free spout and keeps drinks cool for a good couple of hours
Great Product, the best water bottle I have ever used.
Fab bottle keeps water really cold for much longer good large size and great value.
Best bottle I've ever used. Lightweight, no smell.
Absolutely superb - product is exceptional, no nasty taste or BPAs. Keep my drink cold and is brilliant for the price. Simple ordering process and delivered quickly too.
High quality bottle, insulation is worthwhile for warmer weather
Great keeping my jungle juice icy. Excellent for Aussie summers!
Best water bottle I've used!! Keeps drinks colder for 3 times longer even in super hot conditions as we experience in South Africa!!
Excellent product for keeping drink at ambient temperature rather then freezing. Great value from Merlin.
Product couldn't be more perfect - just like the gift that keeps on giving! Very much worth the purchase.

Love it! Keeps contents nice and cold for long periods.
Great bottle! I have had one of these for ?years used on bike,walks at work. Keeps water cooler than standard bottle. Need to clean nozzle out to prevent mould, which is a bit fiddly. These newer items look equally useful. Great merlin service at bargain price.
The Camelbak Podium Big Chill water bottle is possibly one of the best I have ever purchased. I have always been involved in various sports from a young age and have purchased plenty of water bottles over the years. This particular water bottle stands out as it manages to keep your beverage cold (useful if you are swimmer or in direct sunlight), is very robust and have yet to have one that leaks. If fact my only reason for having to purchase a new one, is that I lost my old one. Although a bit more expensive than other water bottles on the market, it is well worth the extra money.
Best big bottle on the market. Keeps drinks cold even on hot Florida summer days.
Excellent bottles. In the really cold and really hot temps, these bottles just shine through!
This bottle works; it'll keep a drink cool throughout the day.
Excellent value for money and keep your drink colder for longer which is a plus
Fabulous. Worth the money for a decent water bottle.
I love these bottles: you can drink your favourite energetic drink without holding a sticky bottle. They are great.
Really easy to drink from unlike other bottles I have used and has the bonus of keeping the drink cooler longer.
Super bottles, keep liquid cooler for longer than ordinary bottles. Jet valve is a brilliant valve.
I totally satisfied with this one. Hold water cold for 2-3 hours even under sun. Btw here in 0zmir Turkiye weather is almost 40C :)
Bought the insulated version. Keeps my drink cold for a couple of hours even in direct sun. I would recommend this to any cyclist who likes a cold drink
This is a great water bottle. Really easy to hydrate when on challenging terrain on road or mountain bike. The removable top makes it really easy to clean as well. The insulation has been okay but I have not tested it thoroughly.
Not 100% convinced it keeps liquid any cooler than a normal bottle but haven't done any scientific tests (!). It's a nice shape, size and design - just squeeze (or suck) and drink. No leaks - I've read reviews which say it leaks... my only guess us that if the lid is overtightened I'd expect it to leak. So far so good.
Best bottle ever! Keeps drinks cold and the nozzle is awesome (always off and on just with a little squeeze) no need to bite the valves again. Buy the smaller 610ml bottle if you have a very small frame.
Was looking for a bpa-free water bottle with a large capacity and this one ticked all the boxes, especially as it is insulated. Fits my standard bottle cage and the valve on the nozzle does what it's supposed to, so is completely leak-free. Am very happy with this purchase and can thoroughly recommend it!
It's the best sports bottle I've used. No leaks, keeps cool and easy to drink from.
Good quality. Easy to drink from no need to squeeze just suck, lid has 2 positions open & closed but even the bottle is turned upside down no liquid will come out, it is quite thick so might be a little difficult to grip particularly while riding, keeps drinks either hot or cold due to the bottle being insulatated
I'm big fan of the podium bottle. No plastic taste, easy to clean and keeps your drink cold.
Cracking product, easy to grab and use whilst on the go. Great size for those longer unsupported rides.
