Fits great, easy to install, no mods needed!

I read countless reviews stating how difficult this was to install onto their Camelbak, so I was very very hesitant to buy it. It wasn't until I read ONE Amazon review that posted a picture of it properly installed, stating it wasn't too difficult to put on. That is when I decided to purchase two (one for myself and a friend. I literally just followed the simple 4 step pictured directions and bam, I was done within a few minutes! My friend said she installed it within 1 minute. I put mine on ...

Doesn't fit newer Camelbacks

This bit valve cover is not a good fit for camelbak's that have the lever to close water flow to prevent leaks. You have to do a stretch to get the cover over the mouth piece. See picture attached.

Great product

By Cheryl

I love the fact that my bite valve on my Camelbak stays clean. No worries if you set your pack down and the bite valve touches the ground - the cover keeps it clean, as long as you remember to keep the cap on. Great product.

 

Great idea!

By treje

Great idea! Love that I don't have to worry when I take my hydration pack off during a hike whether the mouthpiece will get dirty or not. Camelbak® should make these standard on their packs. Only drawback is that the loops on the Camelbak® packs are too small for these to fit through easily, or at all, depending on the pack. A real design flaw on the pack's part, but I got around it by using a mini-carbiner clip to clip it to the pack.

 

Hard to install, useless

By joey

The issue with this product is that it's impossible to install properly. The material to to filmsy and bends when you try to reinsert the drinking hose over the barb of the drinking valve. So, you end up with a half installed drinking hose with the protector on it.

 

Couldn't Install It Without Modification

I bought one of these at a retail store along with my reservoir. It cannot be installed as directed in the instructions. The instructions say to wet the hose and twist the bite valve on, if you do that you will simply rip your bite valve as it does not turn against the hose, it's too tight. I had to cut off the bottom straight portion of the bite valve cover in order to give myself some room to pull the bite valve on with my fingers from the bottom. Normally the bite valve cover covers the entire bite valve and there is nothing to grab onto to pull the bite valve on. I suppose if you bought this for a bite valve you had already been using for a while it might have stretched out a little bit and been easier, but for a brand new bite valve it's impossible to install it as it's sold.

 

I wish it came preinstalled

This is pretty much an essential component, if you don't want to be eating dirt when you take a drink. It works, and it's *way* better than what we all used to do before there were such things -- remember when we tied snack bags around the tube with a rubber band? However, the last time I got a Camelbak, the valve cover came preinstalled -- but not this time. I did locate and watch the instruction video, and even so, it wasn't easy to get on (although I did manage eventually). I'm looking forward to the day when this essential component once again comes fitted on the tube, when you buy the bag.

 

Love this!

Wish these came with all packs. Was not easy for me to get on, but had someone help and they had no issues :) Couldn't imagine not having this on my mouthpiece

I read countless reviews stating how difficult this was to install onto their Camelbak, so I was very very hesitant to buy it. It wasn't until I read ONE Amazon review that posted a picture of it properly installed, stating it wasn't too difficult to put on. That is when I decided to purchase two (one for myself and a friend. I literally just followed the simple 4 step pictured directions and bam, I was done within a few minutes! My friend said she installed it within 1 minute. I put mine on the Camelbak Crux 3L, and my friend put hers on her Camelbak Antidote 3L. If it wasn't for that Amazon review with the photograph, I don't think I would have purchased it because someone on the reviews here posted a review saying that this doesn't properly fit the new Crux and they posted a picture with it too. If you take a look at that person's picture (their username is "Hiker") they placed the bottom half on the wrong place. They placed it below the grey lock mechanism, it needs to be placed ABOVE it so it can lock shut when you close it. Because of that, I am posting two photos of it properly installed along with my review, one with the cover lifted and the other with it closed. It works perfectly as it should, however, I am disappointed that this isn't automatically part of the Camelbaks. Hopefully their future Camelbak products will include it with each purchase! Honestly, get this, you won't regret it and you won't have to worry about the bite valve getting dirty when you place your bags on the ground anymore!

will his work with the 2011 mule model? thanks
Jaimie S. C on Oct 6, 2011
BEST ANSWER: The Bite Valve Cover should work with any of the CamelBak models. The only difficulty is that when you have it attached to your bite valve, you can't slide the water tube through your backpack (in order to take the reservoir completely out of the backpack) without first removing the entire mouthpiece apparatus.
Will the bite valve cover work with the ergo lock? Will it work with the better bottle?
A shopper on Jun 1, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the bite valve cover will work with the ergo lock. It however will not work with the better bottle. The better bottle cover flips down so it is mostly protected unless you are dragging it thru mud. I hope that helps. Stay safe and have fun out there! Neal
