holders. It's dishwasher safe.
What is BPA?
The Better Bottle with Big Bite Valve makes it easy to hydrate on
Bisphenol-A is an ingredient used to make polycarbonate. In recent
months, there has been increasing consumer demand for a bottle that
is not made with Bisphenol-A (BPA), and CamelBak is proud to
introduce BPA-free bottles with the same great properties customers
have come to expect from polycarbonate: vibrant color, clarity,
durability, dishwasher-safe, and with no residual taste. As of the
end of April 2008, the entire CamelBak bottle line will be
available in BPA-Free materials in North America.
What are phthalates?
Phthalates (pronounced thal-ates) are a component added to some
plastics to make them soft and pliable. None of CamelBak's bottles
have ever contained phthalates.
What is the BPA-free Better Bottle made from?
The CamelBak Better Bottle line is made from a new copolyester
polymer called Tritan, made by Eastman. It offers the same great
qualities that we have come to expect from polycarbonate bottles
and is 100 percent BPA-Free. The Big Bite Valve is made of
medical-grade silicone for long life and taste-free performance.
CamelBak is the originator and world leader in hands-free hydration

sports when scientific studies showed athletes drank more fluids
and performed better when they wore a CamelBak. Since then,
athletes from an ever-growing list of sports and activities use

hasn't changed: CamelBak still believes in the performance
