Strengths:    Compliant plastic makes it easy to squeeze
No need to bite the valve

Weaknesses:    Collects dirt
Difficult to get all the fluid out

Bottom Line:   
Nice concept for a water bottle, but the valve is deep and easily collects dirt. Cleaning the valve isn't easy either. Also some difficulty in getting the last bit of fluid out of the water bottle given the valve mechanism.

Strengths:    great product, no fumbling, no leakage even when upside down. Works just like advertised.

Weaknesses:    has small opening in valve which will collect dirt, which may or may not clear out with a squirt.

Bottom Line:   
Excelent product except for dirt collection problem, Use standard bottle in wet or muddy conditions. Well worth giving it a try.
