How easy are the filters to find, and do Brita filters work in this?

Each filter is supposed to last for 48 Gallons or 3 months.

A 6 pack of filters are $19 on Amazon.

The filters are easy enough to find on Amazon, not the cheapest things though. It absolutely does not take a Brita filter. This filter strictly will make the water taste better, not actually purify it in any way. That being said I own one and use it all day everyday. Great for filling up at work, and also is spill-proof.

I have two of these and I'm not a fan. Water collects in the spout and gets hot so when you go back to get another drink you get warm, old fluid. Even though I'm the only one drinking out of it, it still feels like I'm drinking back wash.

Can these be frozen?

Can't believe this! Spent $15 at candy cane's Sporting goods about three hours ago on this exact same item!!!

BTW, they DO sell replacement filters there; I want to say they were $10, probably for only one.

In short, this is a good deal, since the whole shebang costs less than the filter does (retail). Buy three for the filters alone!

Bought 3 of these last woot! off. My 9 year old son loves it! We have always had a hard time getting him to drink water. Now he keeps it filled, and drinks at least one bottle a day. He likes having a water bottle like Mom and Dad.

He goes with me to the gym on the weekends, plays in the kid area and likes to bring his water bottle.

Oops, my Tiara slipped!

I hear you, I like my camelbak bottle very much, but the left over water in the valve can be off-putting. I have gotten into the habit of giving the valve a little squeeze before I push it down. The excess water goes back down and problem solved.

I'm stuck using a CPAP, so having this on the nightstand means that I can take sips of water without messing with the CPAP mask.

I also find the design useful for drinking (water) while driving, since I don't have to move the bottle up into my field of vision.

With decent-tasting tap water, sometimes I skip using the filter altogether.

Empty the mouthpiece.

My husband uses a CPAP and also keeps one of these at the bedside for midnight drinks. I have a camelback but actually prefer the similar style they sell at Costco 3 for $18 as they do not have the "warm backwash" problem.

I bought three during the last offering. They're very useful - clean easily, fill easily, and the bite/suck mechanism is intuitive. One thing: I quickly realized that the tip of the straw works exactly the same way as a part of my anatomy that is not really mentionable on this forum, a part that I've seen every day of my life. Ummmm, sorry... you cannot un-know this.

After using the Brita bottle for a while I bought these on a whim from woot. I seriously regret my decision ... To not buy 3 of them. This is one of those few rare deals from woot that is really a great bargain. I find these way easier to drink out of than the britas. Put me down for three! I normally see these sell retail from $20-35

I bought 4 of these from a woot offering a while back, thinking it would be a great way to get the whole family to drink more water, and none of us liked them. The bite and suck spout made it feel like we were drinking from a baby bottle or something. It was a lot of work to get a little water. The two unopened bottles are currently in the goodwill pile, the two we used are in the trash.

Can I use this without the filter part inserted. I use filtered water. Will it work properly?

Bought a couple of these from Woot a few months ago. Love the filter in them, water tastes great.

Yes, Filter fits into the straw, so you could use it without.

I have a Brita filter at home that stays in the fridge, and fills all my water bottles. Getting another device with a filter seems inefficient to me. Too many filters to switch out. I'll stick with the non-filtered, double-walled version. My POV, otherwise, a great product, just not "the one" for me.

I will also chime in with the chorus that simply biting down on the valve after sipping allows the water in the straw to slink back into the container and stay cooler, longer.

Yep...it works without the filter. However, these things are almost impossible to get totally clean...kind of nasty when we are talking about spittle....lots and lots of spittle. The replacement filters are a ripoff, too. The good news for new suckers, I paid more when I got mine from Woot many moons ago.

Anyone know how these things are in terms of keeping things cold? I currently use Tervis tumblers w/ a lid at my desk but would like something a little more spill-proof. I HIGHLY value the Tervis insulating properties.

Totally agree! This design is much more user-friendly for drinking while driving.

I have a 17 month old who never took a bottle and has never done very well with sippy cups. He still doesn't really get the whole tipping back idea. Other than regular cup with a straw, the Camelbak is the only bottle he's been able to use on his own since about 6 months old. For some reason the straw/mouthpiece is intuitive for him to use. Just thought I'd throw that out there for any other nursing moms struggling to find a sippy/bottle their baby will take. I have a few friends who have also found that, other than the enormous size, this is an ideal water bottle for their toddler/s.

I don't think they're insulated at all, but keep the water at a cooler temp than, say, my non-insulated aluminum bottles. I usually put ice in mine, and that does make it sweat. I prob wouldn't recommend this bottle for desk use. Great for the car or outdoor use.

Are you referring to cleaning the filter or the bottle itself? I've never had problems. The soft part of the mouthpiece comes off (at least on the one I own) so you can clean inside it with a small bottle brush or q-tip.

Could you elaborate on the correlation between the bite/suck mechanism of the straw and your body part for those Wooters who are on the fence about buying and want to get off?

Have had one of these for a while now. Love it. You can get the replacement filters really cheap on amazon. I think it's something like 6 for $15-$20 shipped if you have amazon prime.

Don't worry !!! with the shipping added, it is $12.99 at woot.

Sooooo.....are you saying that you have to "shake" the mouthpiece after using it so that you don't get the "warm first flush" issue mentioned earlier???

Wondering if anyone has the camelback "jacket" that you can slip the bottle into so it doesn't sweat? I was wondering if this would fit into it also? I can not stand using a water bottle that sweats! And it is hard to find anything that doesn't here in Texas! Especially down here in south Texas. It is so humid!

For the person that uses the Tervis tumbler... I have several of those as well. But even those sweat where I live! I still like them, but can't use them at work or I'll have a puddle on my counter.
