Rated 4 out of 5 by AmyZH No more rubber button?
We've bought 8 of these over the last 4 years. The first three had a true rubber "button" to push, to help you pop it open. But the next five had no button. The description right now claims the existence of a "button," but I'm guessing that isn't what they originally had, and that the old type of button is still missing in this latest generation of bottles. Instead, there is a hard plastic knob that has to be forced. That's harder for little hands.
And yes, they do leak. However, if you take a big sip and then close it immediately, it is less likely to leak. But if you sip lightly, and leave the straw up and open, it seems to create air pressure inside the bottle, forcing the liquid out. Definitely worse on airplanes. We stick to water, we don't take them on planes, and we expect the possibility of leaks, and it's fine.
Bottom line is, I've yet to find anything better for kids who have outgrown sippy cups, but these are still not perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Camelbak Terrible - leaks everywhere
"Never spill"?? This thing has ruined the seat of a leather chair, a pale-upholstered daybed and an expensive wooden coffee table. It discharges its entire contents as soon as it's on its side. AWFUL! DON'T BUY!

Rated 3 out of 5 by AliSch Decent but has a flaw
This cup is durable and fun. However it has a design flaw. If there is anything besides water in it or if you experience a change in air pressure during traveling, the spout leaks out its contents. There is no air vent to allow the release of the pressure so pretty soon your table or diaper bag is soaked with its contents. This is such a bummer considering it is a great looking cup and holds quite a bit of fluid. Unfortunately I can't recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ThrifttyGrammy Just what I was looking for.
Bought this for my Grandsons birthday. It was just what I was looking for. Great for hikes and any time you need to take a drink.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OzzieJ Great bottle
We have two of these water bottles for my 5 year old son. Great size. No leaks. Very durable. We wash by hand due to the spout and straw, otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShopperinPA Excellent product!
We have 2 of these water bottles for my school age kids. They LOVE Them! They love them because they don't leak or sweat. No more librarian getting upset because the water bottle leaked all over the library book. No more parents or teachers being upset because homework is coming in all wet and you can't write on it. They are also easy to clean. They come apart easily and can be put right in the dishwasher. Then, they are just as easy to reassemble to get going again. I'm going to get more for Christmas presents for everyone I know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanieBean Well worth it
I bought my first camelbak kids water bottle 2 years ago - not only has it NOT leaked in those 2 years, it has probably paid for itself several times over, because I haven't been buying drink boxes for school! just bought another one, convenient having 2 when one is in the dishwasher. This is one great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 Well made for a kid
We lost the last water bottle to an unfortunate "jump off a really high place with water bottle in hand" incident. This bottle was dropped and shoved and thrown and not a crack or leak at all so far. And for an energetic and dare devil child like mine, this is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by enidan Love it!
I bought 4 kid water bottles, but I bought this particular one for my son who is 7 and very active. I love the fact it doesn't leak. My son drinks a whole lot more water now just because it his own personal water bottle and not just a plain cup.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Grandpaof9 Water bottle leaks
Kids loved the graphics on the bottle, but after using it for a couple of days, it is no longer allowed in the house because it leaks.
