I took the Bubba bottle back to Big 5 where the manager gave me a go-ahead to grab as many bottles as I wanted, fill them with water and do the shake test to my hearts content. Boy did I! I eliminated a Filas bottle I was considering rather quickly by half filling it with water, opening and closing the lid, and shaking it every which way possible (right-side up, diagonally, and upside down). It was an epic fail; I turned it upside down, shook and it sprayed like a sprinkler. Now the Camelbak's turn; this guy won with flying colors. I shook and shook and shook with all my might determined to get something out of it and not a single drop came forth. We have our winner! (I may have danced around like a moron for a few seconds doing the victory dance.) In case you wonder what that looks like, look here .

Oh one more thing, depending on where you get it it can range from $10-$20 which is very reasonable for a non-leaky bottle.
QOTD: Ever owned a Camelbak bottle or pack? What is you're holy grail bottle?
