    Great solution
    In every decision there's a pro and con. If you be one accustomed to drinking from a bladder or find that water bottles attached either with clips or bungie a are not your thing then this bottle adaptor might be right for you.

    I use it with light weight Smart Water bottles and find it easy to drink while on the trail without having to fight your water bottle in and out.

    I've been transitioning to smaller backs with lighter gear but still enjoy drinking while I'm hiking without disrupting my stride.

    Cons: Expensive. I changed mouthpiece.

    Fantastic bit of kit
    Purchased after seeing one, couldnt find it in any shop so had to go online. What a find. As a Mountain Leader who works Europe wide I find this system fits almost every bottle there is avalible. I commonly use it with my Sigg bottles but can now attach it to any size of bottle for any activity. The only trouble ive had is finding a spare black cover cap to replace one I broke climbing. In winter you have to insulate the tube and connection well in order to prevent freezing of the tube and leaks from the connection (due to contraction of metal bottle). Apart from that what a decent idea.

    I purchased mine with a "Liquitainer" and a spare cap. I have not regretted my purchase one bit! A nice surprise were the different adaptors included with it. I can use it on a "Nalgene" bottles, Aluminium inner thread bottles, and just plain of the shelf bottled water, and as mentioned, the Liquitainer. Fantastic bite valve, which I want on a bladder from the tactical site instead if the "Storm" valve. Great product! Love it! I'll be back for more as the need arises!

    Innovative - Practical - Value. I'm in the U.S. and was searching for a hydration solution for my hiking and backpacking needs. Have since used this product on the trail as well as around the house. Here are the positives - Caps will fit a variety of common bottles in the U.S. / No bladder to clean. / Tube will easily adjust to the depth of your bottle. / Bite valve works well with no leakage. / Easy to suck water through. / All parts are sturdy. I use distilled water or water I filter from a stream so no introduction of man-made chemicals is how I use it. I do not use flavored drinks in this although you can. Would just mean you need to clean the tube more often which I have yet to do. So far I have found no issues with this product and have had great service from this company. There are 4 cap sizes so here is what I know so far concerning the "fit" to various bottles. The 24mm fits Evian water bottles which are more prevalent in Europe. The 42mm fits the aluminum Sigg bottles made in Switzerland. The 64mm will fit most Nalgene bottles, the Nalgene "Canteen" collapsible bottle and the Coleman 32oz bottle. The 28mm is the cap with will be most useful for plastic bottles in the U.S. So far the 28mm has fit the Platypus collapsible bottle, Fred 20oz flask, Brisk Ice Tea 1.05 Qt, Dasani 16.9 oz, Aquafina 1.05 t, NOS Energy Drink 22 oz bottle and my favorite, the Smartwater bottles. The Smartwater 23.7 oz comes with a different top so you could put the cap back on and use it to back-flush the Sawyer mini water filter with clean water rather than used the inclosed syringe to back-flush your filter. Highly recommend this product if it fits your needs.

    Very useful for using with elliptical trainer / Très utile pour
    I had a problem when using my elliptical trainer : I had to stop and go down every times I needed to drink, which broke my rythm and annoyed me. The problem was solved by Convertube. Thanks !
    J'avais un problème lorsque j'utilisais mon vélo elliptique : je devais m'interrompre et descendre du vélo chaque fois que je voulais boire, ce qui cassait mon rythme et avait tendance à m'agacer. Le Convertube répond exactement à mon besoin. Merci !

    Works great. Fits the bottles I can buy locally in Switzerland. Very happy with purchase. I can recommend it to people who want the practicality of using it on disposable PET bottles you can buy at the supermarket. Great for dayhikes where you return to civilization in the evening and can get fresh bottles for the next outing. Might not be so usefull on multi day adventures in the backcountry.

    It says "Care & Use unstructions online" but I cannot find anyting about cleaning this on the datasheet. i have two questions:
    1) Is it a problem to disassemble the product and put everything (but the tube) in the dish washer.
    2) The spring in the Front part which enables the fluid flowing - can it rust? because this part is hard to clean

    Yes, you can disassemble all the elements, clean them and then re-assemble. We recommend the Tube Brush Kit for cleaning the tube.
    Care and use for the tube and the Helix valve are available in the Care & Use section right under the main image above.

    What are temperature limitations? Also, there are 3 versions of Convertube being sold here in Ukraine - SNEP, SEP and SNP - what is the difference between them?

    Hi.
    I like the product very much! It's easy to use, and I drink more water while riding my bike, which is very positive.
    The adaptors fit very well for some bottles i use (pet, Sigg).
    In my package (version 2012 bought in Germany) there are only 2 adaptors: 42mm and 63mm. I would like to use Evian and Vittel bottles, too, so it would be nice if you can tell me where to get a 24mm adaptor.

    Thanks from Berlin, Germany.

    I'm using it with a 35L backpack...the tube is too long and I have to make a sort of loop inside the backpack otherwise the drinking side sticks out too much. Can I disassemble and shorten the tube on one side without loosing the sealing properties? Thanks

    I'm having hard time using this product because the cap/adaptors won't fit the local pet bottles available in my country. I can't find other bottle/containers wherein the adaptos fit.
