Is the Camelbak BPA free?
All of our bottles and reservoirs are 100% free of BPA, BPS and BPF. Our plastic bottles are made of a BPA-free material called Tritan. Tritan is a copolyester polymer that offers vibrant color, clarity, durability and dishwasher safety—and no residual taste.
Manufacturing Process. Camelbak manufactures its products in its wholly-owned ISO-certified factories. Products are manufactured in both the United States and China. Hydration packs and non-disposable water bottles are made from materials from all over the world.
- The CamelBak® eddy™ line is made from a 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% BPA-Free. The eddy™ Caps are made of Polypropylene – for toughness and sealing performance.
- eddy, Groove and any other bottle with a Big Bite™ Valve:
- Pull off the bite valve and straw from the cap.
- Clean it in the top rack of the dishwasher or by hand with warm, soapy water.
- If you like to use a bottle brush, we don't recommend forcing it through the bite valve slit as it can tear the silicone.
- Here's how to do it.
- Clean and dry the water bladder as described above.
- Roll up your bladder and wrap the hose around itself so it takes as little space in the freezer as possible.
- Wrap a large rubber band around it to keep it together.
- Place it in the freezer.
Use hot water and 2 tablespoons of baking soda or bleach. Mix the solution inside your reservoir and hold it up above your head while you pinch the bite valve, allowing the bleached water to run through the tube. You can also use CamelBak Cleaning Tabs. Let the reservoir and cleaning solution sit for about 30 minutes.
- Groove, eddy, and Better Bottle with BigBite™ Valve: Pull off the bite valve and straw from the cap. Clean it in the top rack of the dishwasher or by hand with warm, soapy water. If you like to use a bottle brush, we don't recommend forcing a brush through the Bite Valve slit.
- Use hot, soapy water and rinse thoroughly with hot water. For tough cleaning jobs, add 1/4 cup of baking soda to 3/4 cup of water per liter volume of your bottle or reservoir and shake for 30 seconds. Add 1/4 cup lemon juice, shake 10 seconds, and vent by loosening cap away from face.
- Put your backpack in a laundry bag if possible as this prevents the straps getting caught and damaging your bag or washing machine. Alternatively you can use a pillow case or simply turn the backpack inside out. 4. Run the machine through an empty wash to clear any detergent residue from previous washes.
camelbak bladders are made from polyurethane. i have to believe that all other soft bladders are. Bisphenol-A (BPA) was used to make hard plastic bottles, polycarbonate, but there was never and is not any BPA in any of the soft polyurethane camelbak bladders.
- A hydration pack is a type of hydration system built as a backpack or waistpack containing a reservoir or "bladder" commonly made of rubber or flexible plastic. The reservoir contains a capped mouth for filling with liquid and a hose that allows the wearer to drink hands-free.
- The outer lining is made of highly durable RipStop Nylon and the faux leather on the base and top handle makes the bag easy to look after. I haven't noticed any scuff-marks or loose fraying of the backpack material so far.
- Da kine /d? ˈka?n/ is an expression in Hawaiian Pidgin (Hawaii Creole English), probably derived from "the kind", that usually functions grammatically as a placeholder name (compare to English "whatsit" and "whatchamacallit"), but can also take the role of a verb, adjective, or adverb.
