What customers say about "Key Specs"
Elite Nanogelite Thermal Bicycle Water Bottle - 500 ml
  • It is the best insulated water bottle I have used/bought. It is very expensive, but after experiencing how well it works, it is worth the price.
  • The mouth piece pops up when you freeze the bottle but, hold ice for 2-3 hours. I chose a large size bottle.
  • 500ml is it's full capacity; there's not much air space above it.
  • This one bends after washing sort of an oval now. Does it work? Sure, but nossle is poorly designed and just not the best product out there.
  • Not as good as a camelback. The nozzle is rubbish. The bottle itself keeps ice for an hour maybe.
CamelBak Podium Ice Insulated Bike Water Bottle, 21oz
  • This is a great product and I have been using this bottle for years.
  • This item is Camelbak 21 ounce water bottle. The special feature here is the insulated nature of the bottle.
  • The design is really meant for a bike cage, though I use these types of bottles for fitness purposes beyond biking.
  • I tested it against my 24 ounce insulated CamelBak and the difference was negligible.
  • There is a twist top to open it, which is actually pretty stiff, so it won't open on accident, and then there is a valve inside which requires some pressure to push water through.

What customers say about "Features"
Elite Nanogelite Thermal Bicycle Water Bottle - 500 ml
  • Filled it up with ice cubes and no liquid. After 4 hrs. in 100 degree weather, all the ice has melted, but the water is still a COLD 35 degrees, measured with a meat thermometer.
  • I don't mind my drink warming up in the summer, but I can't bear it when it gets cold in the winter - I end up not drinking it until I get home.
  • Even after a couple of hours, the bottle keeps the drink at "mains" temperature.
CamelBak Podium Ice Insulated Bike Water Bottle, 21oz
  • It definitely does keep a drink cold for a noticeably longer period than many water bottles I've used in the past, but there are many these days which are every bit as good as this one.
  • Too tall and hard to squeeze
  • My overall impression of this bottle, which I ordered specifically to use as a bicycling hydration bottle is only so-so. I really wish it had a cap and that the twist open/close mouthpiece was not so difficult to work.
  • Other than that, this is an excellent bottle. You can suck on the nozzle to drink or just simply squeeze the bottle.
  • Dishwasher safe, but the inner liner deforms if run through the top rack of the dishwasher
