Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless It seemed like such a good idea, too. I was unable to get the mouthpiece back on the hydrolock, and I couldn't imagine repeating this futile exercise every time I had to remove the reservoir from my pack, because it doesn't fit through any of the tube holes on any of my packs. The cap is in the way when you're trying to get a drink, and I couldn't get enough mouthpiece into my mouth for a good drink because it was half buried inside the cover assembly. I don't think much of smearing everything with rubbing alcohol - one more thing to carry? I have used Camelbaks for many years but have smartly avoided those silly accessories. A raincover? Come on!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Prevents dirt, mud, etc., but not leaks I got this because I would frequently get the Big Bite Valve dirty when I put my pack down. It definitely does the trick for that. Installation wasn't super quick (the valve was stuck on the tube after a few years of usage) but pretty simple. The cover is a bit bigger than I like to fit through the holes and straps in my pack, but not a deal breaker. The biggest issue I had with it is that even a slight amount of pressure on this thing when closed would cause it to open the Big Bite Valve and leak water. This makes it pretty much useless. Maybe it will work better with the Ergo Hydrolock which I intend to try out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice to have the bite valve clean on a hike I am so happy I bought this bite valve cover. Now I don't have to worry about getting dirt in my mouth when I take a drink. I know some people have said it is hard to get on over the bite valve, but I just followed the directions that came with it and it went on without a problem. I feel it was worth the few dollars in order to extend the life of the bite valve and to make it a little more sanitary to drink from. I would suggest that in between uses make sure to open up the cover; otherwise, some water will remain in there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the extra few bucks When backpacking, or even on a day hike, my camelbak bite valve often falls in the dirt. Just this past weekend, it must have ended up in the dirt 20 times. Combined with moisture, it became muddy. The bite valve cover keeps your bite valve clean!! Well worth it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Useful and needed product, but... As with most reviewers, I got this because I was tired of cleaning dirt, mud, and who knows what off the bite valve. Good function, not so good functionally. 2 issues I have are: 1) when the cover is off and dangling from the bite valve, it gets in the way of taking a drink because of its bulk and short leash. 2) You have to remember to put the cover on (along with catching your breath, catching the scenery, etc.) right away or you lose the functionality once your pack hits the dirt. I've forgotten to put the cover on many times, so I wind up with dirt, mud, etc. on the mouthpiece anyway. The need for this product is there, but the form and function could use improving. Not sure how to do it, but there's gotta be a better way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Prefect I am extremely happy with this product, and did not find it difficult to attach the cover over the mouth piece. Followed the directions and added some water to reduce friction when reattaching. I had been tucking the bite guard in my pack to keep is clean while in transport to the field location until the day I forgot to lock it and lost half my water. No matter how careful I was and wasting time trying to keep my bite value clean and off the ground, it was impossible. This cover is perfect, functional and a valuable part of my pack.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Impossible to install I bought this as I have a camelback hydration pack and wanted to make sure I did not get dirt on my bit valve; however, the piece that the cover piece clips too is impossible to put on because it does not allow any of the plastic to go through to then feed back into the tube. I even looked at YouTube videos on how to get it done and I could not do it. I ended up just having it hanging and then put the lid over the mouthpiece. It is pretty snug so it seems to keep it covered even though I am unable to use the other piece to snap to it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Couldn't Install It Without Modification I bought one of these at a retail store along with my reservoir. It cannot be installed as directed in the instructions. The instructions say to wet the hose and twist the bite valve on, if you do that you will simply rip your bite valve as it does not turn against the hose, it's too tight. I had to cut off the bottom straight portion of the bite valve cover in order to give myself some room to pull the bite valve on with my fingers from the bottom. Normally the bite valve cover covers the entire bite valve and there is nothing to grab onto to pull the bite valve on. I suppose if you bought this for a bite valve you had already been using for a while it might have stretched out a little bit and been easier, but for a brand new bite valve it's impossible to install it as it's sold.
