The eddy now has a redesigned cap for greater durability and faster flow. The eddy .75L bottle is 100 percent BPA-free and built with CamelBak's patented flip-top bite valve that lets you sip without tipping or spilling — perfect for hydration on the go. The integrated loop handle can be hooked to a carabiner or carried in the crook of one finger. Dishwasher safe.
The bottle, 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.
First-time use: What’s the clear thing on top of the cap for? Do I remove it or cut it to drink?
The clear thing is the CamelBak Big Bite Valve. This 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.
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 with hot drinks because the experience will be similar to drinking hot liquid through a straw.
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.
Can I use with carbonated beverages?
You can use any beverage in the CamelBak eddy; however, we do not recommend the use of carbonated beverages with the straw configuration because pressure can force liquid out through the straw. To use with carbonated beverages, we recommend that you remove the straw and drink via "tip and sip."
What max temperature (freezing/boiling water) can the CamelBak eddy withstand?
The CamelBak eddy can withstand being filled with warm water up to 65 ºC/149 ºF or stored in below-freezing temperatures.
Is the CamelBak eddy microwave safe?
Feel free to use the CamelBak eddy to warm up liquids (ie. up to a minute), but we don’t recommend cooking your dinner in it. Do not microwave with the cap in place as it contains metal screws that are not microwave safe.
Does the CamelBak eddy work with back-country purifier filters/microfilters?
The CamelBak eddy is compatible with filters that adapt to a 63 mm screw top opening (in other words, it’s compatible with most filters on the market).
Does it hold residual taste?
No, there is no residual taste in the bottle materials, and it’s also stain-resistant. Some sports drinks and other flavored beverages can leave behind residue of flavor oils that could require extra cleaning.
What happens if I take the straw off?
Removal of the straw allows a "tip and sip" mode of drinking.
