A great idea

Posted27 December 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Cons: Expensive
Purchased these to avoid ingesting any more of the mud which we have so much of at the moment. These covers completely cover the bite valve, however camelbak chose to make them from the least pliable plastic which makes them impossible to fit unless you soften them in boiling water for a good 5 minutes

Keeps out the muck!

Posted04 November 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Cons: fiddly?
Easy to fit and keeps the mouthpiece clean. Just what I needed to keep the sand and germs away in the desert! I could relax when taking my pack off at our breaks knowing if the tube trailed in sand once I popped the cover off i would get a clean flow.
Others without the cover were spitting sand and risking bugs. A few were going to buy one for off road biking.
I did use two hands to open the cover, which may be a problem on a bike, but if you could fix the tube more firmly it could work one handed.

Protection from dirt,& other nasties

Posted16 September 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
If you are used to removing camelbak bite valves then these are really easy to fit.
If not then just dunk valve in a cup of hot water for 10 seconds or so, GENTLY pull the valve off, pop the cover on and fit the valve back on, job done !!!
Helps to keep your valve clean, especially when you set everything down and the tube is on the ground.
For the price I would recommend their use, especially to avoid picking up some disease from contaminants such as animal S, H, (one), T which, let's be honest, is everywhere if you are in forests and such.

Perfect for muddy rides!

Posted27 June 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight
Cons: a little tricky to fit
Perfect for muddy rides!
I bought this after doing the (very muddy) Manchester to Liverpool ride a few weeks ago.
I got half way through and realised I couldn't drink out of my Camelbak because it was covered in mud, along with my hands, so I couldn't clean it.
Since buying this I have had no problems with mud and dirt covering my bite valve.
It was a little tricky to fit, but once it was on it's perfect.

Eat dirt no more!

Posted07 September 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
An essential addition to the Camelbak bite valve if you like to drink without the crunch of dirt and who knows what else. Easy to fit to the bite valve, just remove the bite valve, feed it through the cover and reinsert over hose fitting. The cover is easy to remove and re-apply with one one hand whilst cycling although you do have to nudge it to the side with your face to get to the bite valve but it beats eating dirt. A good, simple bit of kit that should perhaps come as standard but is well worth the small investment.

Bought this for my daughter's camelbak and she don't know how to keep the mouthpiece clean and hygiene. Fit prefectly, and fast service from Evans.
