Rated 5 out of 5 by Naomi from Fits great, easy to install, no mods needed! I read countless reviews stating how difficult this was to install onto their Camelbak, so I was very very hesitant to buy it. It wasn't until I read ONE Amazon review that posted a picture of it properly installed, stating it wasn't too difficult to put on. That is when I decided to purchase two (one for myself and a friend). I literally just followed the simple 4 step pictured directions and bam, I was done within a few minutes! My friend said she installed it within 1 minute. I put mine on the Camelbak Crux 3L, and my friend put hers on her Camelbak Antidote 3L. If it wasn't for that Amazon review with the photograph, I don't think I would have purchased it because someone on the reviews here posted a review saying that this doesn't properly fit the new Crux and they posted a picture with it too. If you take a look at that person's picture (their username is "Hiker") they placed the bottom half on the wrong place. They placed it below the grey lock mechanism, it needs to be placed ABOVE it so it can lock shut when you close it. Because of that, I am posting two photos of it properly installed along with my review, one with the cover lifted and the other with it closed. It works perfectly as it should, however, I am disappointed that this isn't automatically part of the Camelbaks. Hopefully their future Camelbak products will include it with each purchase! Honestly, get this, you won't regret it and you won't have to worry about the bite valve getting dirty when you place your bags on the ground anymore!

Rated 4 out of 5 by mahhkk from Great cover, a little hard to get on. This cover is great for your Camelbak if you want to make sure the bite valve stays clean. I'm honestly a little shocked they don't include this with every Camelbak, because it seems pretty vital to keeping it clean. Very useful when hiking, I no longer have to worry about the valve touching the ground when I sit down or anything.

Rated 4 out of 5 by wasatchhiker from I wish it came preinstalled This is pretty much an essential component, if you don't want to be eating dirt when you take a drink. It works, and it's *way* better than what we all used to do before there were such things -- remember when we tied snack bags around the tube with a rubber band? However, the last time I got a Camelbak, the valve cover came preinstalled -- but not this time. I did locate and watch the instruction video, and even so, it wasn't easy to get on (although I did manage eventually). I'm looking forward to the day when this essential component once again comes fitted on the tube, when you buy the bag.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ahp378 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hiker from Doesn't fit newer Camelbacks This bit valve cover is not a good fit for camelbak's that have the lever to close water flow to prevent leaks. You have to do a stretch to get the cover over the mouth piece. See picture attached.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lindsay from Impossible to install Why it isn't a snap-on design, I have no idea. It's impossible to get the bite valve back into the tube with this cover on it. And I have to do it every time I use and wash the assembly. This thing is going in the trash. CamelBak, make a snap-on cover please!

Rated 1 out of 5 by thelast6months from Will not fit! Very disappointed as I bought this for the Omega Waterbeast and it doesn’t fit. Wasted time, money, and too much frustration - not a pleasant experience. Now I have a cover I can’t use and STILL need a product to keep my big bite clean.
