Tips for this bottle:
* When cleaning the cap, note that the rubber bite cap can be pried off using a spoon and cleaned.
* It works best for plain water. For those who prefer flavored drinks, don't get Camelbak with a filter (shortens the life of the filter). Camelbak has versions of this bottle without filters.
* Keep the bottle upright when drinking from it (seems obvious since the straw has to be in the liquid for it to work, but some people tip the bottle like a cup then wonder why nothing comes out)
* Don't forget to get extra filter cartridges. I found the 6-pack was the best value.
Considering that the cost of a new cap is almost half the price of a new bottle, I think that Camelbak is being very generous in helping their customers get the longest use out of their bottles.
Assembly was also rather easy - just rinse the little carbon filter and put it into the straw - the whole assembly screws into the cap. Very simple design and makes for really easy cleaning, as well!
The bite valve works great, and I like knowing that I can always swap it out with a replacement tip instead of having to buy a new bottle altogether.
It's helped boost my water intake, and I've cut quite a few sugary drinks out of my day as a result! Definitely a must-have in that regard.
Overall, I'd highly recommend this bottle, especially at this price point!
-Good capacity, will last you quite a while.
-Bite valve is easy to keep clean, can be replaced easily as well.
-Filters are cheap and easy to use, leave water tasting clean and fresh.
-Color and design are good quality, haven't run into any issues with them yet
-A little large at the base, so it doesn't fit into cupholders. Least of your problems, though.
So in those cases, I now carry the Camelbak Groove in its (separate purchase) insulated carrier. At the airport, I drink or pour out the contents of the water bottle and carry it empty through security. Then I refill it (using a Sea to Summit X-Cup) at the water fountain inside the secure perimeter. Free, fresh water.
As to the filter's convenience and functionality...
It is very easy to insert and remove the filter. Rinse it as recommended inside and out for 15 seconds, and it slides in easily. I've not had particles in the water I drink. Filters last for months -- I replace them when I start tasting chlorine. Purchased in packs of six, each one is less than three bucks.
Filling the bottle is easy, but you have to hold the top and the attached straw. There's no easy way to set it down without unsanitary contact with some surface.
Functionality is great. I've made marks on mine in 100ml increments, because I track my water intake; I wish the lines were preprinted. But that wish isn't worth deducting a star. What matters is that even heavily chlorinated water tastes great through this filter.

i bought the camelbak groove, tried it for the first time,
followed the instruction carefully how to clean and utilize it
and after having it lying in my backpack for about 10minutes
it starts leaking as aaaaall the amazon reviews kept saying.
im reading on your website now:
"...keep your bottle in an upright position as they are spillproof, but not drip proof."
unfortunately its absolutely not comprehensable for me how you can sell a bottle which is leaking - its only purpose is to keep water inside!
even a 50p bottle from a store seems to be able to keep that promise!
does that mean i have to send it back to amazon now or
should i make use of the "lifetime warranty", get a new bottle and then be disappointed again?!
I am very happy with this product as it has a clean taste, large capacity, nice anti spill/leak design and it is backed by a lifetime warranty!
You will not be disappointed with buying this, I have drank so much more water since owning this bottle and most importantly water tastes so clean and crisp =)
Minor issue- does not fit well in cup holders. Mainly I use in a backpack sidepouch so it doesn't cause me a massive inconvenience but if you were to use it for day to day life or possibly cycling I would check before buying.
Pros- the bottle itself is nice and robust and the filter does a great job giving you clean tasting water.
with my old bottle I had sometimes to take two or just buy a bottle in the shop of 1L because I did not want to drink tape water....
the fact to have the filter allow me to fill the bottle at any tape water and the fact that the bottle is well made don't worry about scratching or breaking it.
easy to change the filter when necessary and not issue to drink water from it.
Does the job !
