CLEANING THE EDDY STAINLESS
The eddy Stainless bottle can be easily cleaned with a bottle brush using warm water and mild soap.
Cleaning the lid:
The bite valve, straw and lid can be cleaned in the top rack of the dishwasher or by hand with warm, soapy water. Pull off the bite valve and straw from the cap. If you like to use a bottle brush, we don’t recommend forcing a brush through the Bite Valve slit. If you have the brush kit, run the small brush through the straw.
For a deeper cleaning, add a drop of mild soap or tablespoon of bleach to a clean glass jar filled with water. Drop the bite valve, straw and cap into the solution, and tightly close the jar’s lid. Shake the mixture around for 30 seconds, and then let the parts soak for about 15 minutes. Rinse and shake dry.
To re-assemble the lid:
Flip the stem collar (the component the bite valve attached to originally) to the open position. Orient the bite valve so the finger tab points towards the front of the cap. Push the bite valve firmly onto the stem collar. Press the straw back into place on the bottom of the lid. Ensure the straw covers the notches completely.
DO I NEED TO CLEAN THE BOTTLE BEFORE FIRST USE?
The stainless steel bottle is easily cleaned by hand with a bottle brush, using warm water and mild soap if desired.
The cap assembly can be cleaned in the top rack of a household dishwasher. The straw and bite valve may be removed from the cap to help provide better cleaning of the inside passages of the cap. It’s a good idea to place small parts in a top-rack basket, if available.
HOW DO I CLEAN THE CAMELBAK STAINLESS STEEL BOTTLES?
The stainless steel bottle can be easily cleaned by hand with a bottle brush using warm water and mild soap.
The straw, bite valve and cap are dishwasher-safe. Simply remove the straw and bite valve from the cap and place in the top rack for washing, or hand-wash with warm water and soap.
WHAT’S THE CLEAR THING ON TOP OF THE CAP FOR? DO I REMOVE IT OR CUT IT TO DRINK?
The silicone ‘cap’ is the CamelBak Big Bite Valve. This patented feature provides easy drinking and spill-proof safety. Do NOT remove or cut this piece to drink. Simply bite it slightly and sip as you would out of a straw.
SOME OTHER BOTTLES TALK ABOUT “EXTRUDED” CONSTRUCTION. HOW ARE YOUR STAINLESS STEEL BOTTLES CONSTRUCTED?
Metal extrusion is a process by which a single piece of metal is compressed under extremely high pressures to stretch it into a new shape, like a bottle. Extrusion processes place a lot of stress on the material and also consume a lot of energy. Our stainless steel bottles are made with a welded construction. At the start, a precision-rolled sheet of steel is cut and formed under low pressure into the shape of the bottle, then welded. Finally the bottle is ground and brushed to provide a finished appearance. Welded construction gives more freedom and control over product shape and design, and also enables us to create a lightweight double-wall vacuum bottle for our .5L insulated eddy™.
CAN/HOW DO I FREEZE THE CAMELBAK EDDY WITH BITE VALVE?
You can freeze the bottle but make sure:
We also recommend that the bite valve stem NOT be flipped up or down if there is any frozen water in the tube. Wait until thawed.
CAN I USE THE CAMELBAK EDDY IN HIGH-ALTITUDE/ LOW-PRESSURE ENVIRONMENTS (I.E. AIRPLANES, MOUNTAIN ALTITUDES, ETC)?
Yes, but with special care because pressure can force liquid out through the straw. Keep the bottle right side up with the bite valve in the closed position. Remove the straw for additional protection. Expect a bit of “spurt” during the first sip. You may also twist the cap open to release any pressure and then close before your first sip.
CAN I PUT HOT LIQUIDS IN IT?
We do not recommend using hot beverages in the stainless steel bottles. The experience will be similar to drinking hot liquid through a straw, with similar risk of burns. Additionally, the single-wall metal bottle (.7L ) does not insulate your hand from the heat of the contents.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I PUT SPORTS DRINKS/JUICE IN THE CAMELBAK EDDY?
Use of any of these drinks in the bottle is fine, but thorough cleaning after each use is recommended.
IS THE CAMELBAK EDDY MICROWAVE SAFE?
Like any metal product, the stainless steel bottles should not be used in a microwave oven.

AN IDEA BORN FROM THE MOST BASIC HUMAN NEED — THIRST
Bicycle enthusiast, Michael Eidson, is competing in the "Hotter'N Hell 100." And that's exactly what it is: a 100-mile road race in the grueling summer heat of Wichita Falls, Texas. Water is vital to surviving the race, and there are few places to refill a water bottle. Eidson, an emergency medical technician by trade, decides to fill an IV bag with water and slip it into a white tube sock. Yes, a tube sock. Then he stuffs the contraption into the back of his bike jersey, throws the thin hose over his shoulder and clamps it with a clothespin.
Hands-free hydration is born. And Eidson is able to drink as he pedals...while the other racers laugh and fiddle with their water bottles.
OPERATION HYDRATION — THE ROAD TO SURVIVAL
Jeff Wemmer, a competitive cyclist who fell hard for CamelBak, was so impressed by the product that he started bringing packs to races to sell them. Talk about a fan. CamelBak eventually hired him, and in 1993, Jeff embarked on a road trip to keep the start-up running during very tough times.
Company lore has it that Jeff visited bike shops from Florida to California, pitching our renegade product from the back of his motorcycle. Each order Jeff faxed back to the factory literally breathed another day of life back into CamelBak.
THE REST IS HISTORY
It took courage, conviction and imagination to evolve from an IV bag in a tube sock sold by a motorcycle-driven sales force of one. Camelbak's core values remain the same and drive everything they do - from inventing the hydration category to becoming the world's leading maker of hydration solutions.
Oh yeah...about those bikers who laughed at Eidson? Well, chances are they've got a CamelBak strapped to their back or in their bike cage these days. Go figure...
