Cleaning the Podium Chill Bottle

CamelBak Podium Chill
The Jet Valve keeps your bottle sealed and drip-free during use

The Podium Chill Bottle is dishwasher-safe and easy to clean. Remove the cap assembly, making sure the Jet Valve lockout is open, and place it with the bottle on the top rack of your dishwasher. For best results, we recommend avoiding high-heat settings such as "sanitary clean" or "heat boost" which may distort plastic components. We don’t recommend forcing a brush or other cleaning tool through the Jet Valve cross-slit (i.e. where you drink).

Please note that the Podium caps are primarily composed of two components: the Jet Valve and the silicone nozzle. To wash the cap by hand, pull off the silicone nozzle and wipe cap with a soapy sponge. Rinse thoroughly and snap the nozzle back on. Do not disassemble small parts of the cap Jet Valve. Disassembly of the plastic cap could lead to leaks or product malfunction.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’m used to the CamelBak bite valve, where’s the bite valve on this bottle?
The Podium Bottle and Podium Chill are designed specifically for cycling, offering optimum, hassle-free hydration via an innovative feature called the CamelBak Jet Valve. Made from medical-grade silicone and designed to flow automatically when you squeeze the bottle, the Jet Valve vents pressure and seals shut automatically when you’re done. It’s simple—no biting involved. So say goodbye to yanking your old pop-top bottle open with your teeth and bashing it shut on your hip, as well as bothersome drips and leaks.

OK, I get the Jet Valve, but do I still need to suck on the nozzle to drink?
It’s your choice. You can either put the nozzle between your lips, or just open your mouth and squirt. The Jet Valve opens automatically when you squeeze, then shuts automatically to prevent drips. Since there’s no pop-top valve to shut off, you can guide the nozzle into helmet vents easily without accidentally shutting off the valve.

Explain the lockout valve under the nozzle. Do I need to shut this off every time I drink?
No. The Jet Valve keeps your bottle sealed and drip-free during use. The rotary valve under the nozzle on the cap is actually a secondary lock-out. We recommend using the lock-out exclusively for storage, i.e. if you’re storing the bottle in a bike bag or trunk. Leave it open during rides or for easy access when you’re drinking from the bottle. You can also lock out your backup bottle on the bike to prevent any unexpected squirts from potholes or other big hits.

How does the Podium Chill Bottle insulation work?
The Podium Chill features a unique, low-profile double-wall construction with a layer of airtight, insulating foam. Compared to other insulated bike bottles that can be stiff or bulky (or both), the Chill bottle is lightweight, easy to squeeze, and fits a lot of water volume into a small space. That’s why we call it, "Cool without Compromise."

Can I put sports drinks in the Podium Bottle or Podium Chill Bottle?
Absolutely. However, make sure to clean the bottle thoroughly after each use.

Can I use carbonated beverages?
Yes. The Jet Valve automatically vents pressure so that “fizz” will not cause pressure buildup. Please note, if the lockout is shut off, there will be pressure buildup, which isn’t dangerous, but could lead to unexpected spray when opened.

Can I put hot liquids in it?
No. However, warm beverages are OK, provided they’re not hot enough to burn your mouth. Extra-hot or boiling water can distort the plastic in the bottle, but warm tea in your Podium Chill Bottle is a nice treat for a cold ride.

Is the bottle microwave-safe?
We don’t recommend heating the bottle in a microwave since contents can heat unevenly. We only recommend putting warm liquids in the Podium and Podium Chill Bottles.

Can I freeze the bottle?
You can freeze the bottle, but before you do, make sure that the bottle is only partially full. We recommend only 3/4 full to allow for expansion of the water as it freezes to ice. Place the bottle in the freezer right side up. Remember: you won’t be able to drink until components have thawed.

OK, I admit I was hooked by the marketing lingo of this water bottle. It's called the "Podium Chill" and is hyped as being able to keep water cooler up to 2 times longer than a standard water bottle. I had visions of grabbing my water bottle in 90 degree heat after 3 hours of cycling in the hot sun and having a big gulp of ice-cold water.

Well I was surprised to find out that the Podium Chill largely lives up to it's hype. It kept water colder for a solid 2 hours in 90 degree, sunny heat.

It's relatively light in weight. It's got a virtually spill-proof top which I like a lot. You can use the "lockout" lever to completely close off the tip so no water will come out whether it's tipped or squeezed. But when you disengage the lockout, it still doesn't drip or leak if tipped over unless you squeeze the bottle thanks to the self-sealing jet-valve. You can squeeze the bottle to get a jet stream of water or you can simply tip the bottle and sip from it.

The wide mouth is nice because it's easy to fill, easy to clean and easily accepts ice cubes.

I got several of these Podium Chill bottles to keep my water cooler for longer while cycling. I use them for their useful jet-valve and wide mouth opening and for keeping my water colder for longer.

By the way, I'm sure the water would stay cooler for an even longer period of time if you were using this inside, out of direct sunlight whether in a gym or in your house.

This is a good bottle that works well, is light, and doesn't give water a bad taste. It will keep your drinks cooler, about 2x longer, BUT this bottle looks very much like the much better podium ice which will keep your drink cooler 4x longer. So in other words, this bottle is only half as good as the podium ice, so don't get confused (like I did) and think you are getting the really good bottle. At the time of this review you won't find that one carried by amazon, and you won't find a prime option either.

This bottle is very sleek and attractive. all the prints are on the 'chill layer,' not on the exterior of the bottle, so i know they won't peel off from washing it numerous times.
speaking of the functional aspect, the bottle is easy to squeeze, the "always open, always closed" spout is nice because all you have to do is to squeeze the bottle to get the water out because it's "always open" and yet the water does not leak through the spout even if you hold the bottle upside down because it's "always closed" as long as you don't squeeze the bottle. This feature is something that Polar bottles do not have. This bottle is also easier to clean than Polar bottles because the less contoured design. Overall, I am very satisfied with the switch I made.

I have lots of different water bottles, but none really worked well when I wanted to take a drink while running on the treadmill or running outside without stopping. Either it was a little difficult to get the liquid to come out while I was running quickly, or else some liquid would spill or drip from the bottle once I finished drinking. Then I discovered this product and can now drink to my heart's content on the treadmill or outside no matter how fast I am running. Here's why I like this.

1. It's very easy to squeeze liquid out of this bottle, and just the right amount comes out.

2. There is absolutely no dripping when I finish drinking. And if I have some liquid left over when I finish running, there's no worry about anything leaking out into my gym bag.

3. This has a knob on top that can be turned to the drinking position or locked position. But even in the drinking position no liquid will come out even when this bottle is turned upside down unless you squeeze it. As a practical matter I never bother with the locked position, though it's nice to know it's available.

4. I don't think this has any better insulation than my 24 oz. narrow mouth steel insulated Hydro flask, which I have used with a sports top when I run outside. But the Camelbak definitely is much easier to use because I can just squeeze it without having to first open s sports top, and unlike a sports top, which will leak unless you close the drinking valve when finished, there is nothing to close on this product. I now bring it to the gym and use it outside all the time.

5. This nicely fits in different water carriers when I run with it outside. Ditto for the water bottle carrier on my bicycle.

I have been using these Camelbak water bottles for a while now and the best way to sum it up is they just work!! This bottle is constructed to be BPA so you get no bad tasting water and you know that you will be safe while using it. The bottle is constructed very well and has held up great for the daily use that it has to endure. Camelbak did great with the 25 oz size it is perfect for a medium length bike ride or other physical activities. Also they have built it with just enough insulation that your ice last longer and the water will stay cold longer and it does not seem to sweat nearly as bad as other uninsulated water bottles I have used in the past. The last and probably most important thing that I love about this water bottle is the drinking nozzle and how it functions!! No longer do you have to pull the tab up to get a drink, NEVER AGAIN!!! With this bottle I can be bombing down a mountain bike trail and decided I need a drink, so I simply reach for my Camelbak bottle and start drinking no messing with the lid, the nozzle, or anything else. And with the design on the nozzle it also is leak proof when the bottle gets knocked over
I have always been a Camelbak fan and have loved all their products that I have used, and this water bottle is a great example why. It does what it needs to do in a very efficient effective way. It is built to last a long time and also to function in a way to helps benefit me when I am using it!
