  • Richard P. Katonah NY

    Likes: Keeps the Bite Valve clean and eliminates the fear that it's going to get compressed and leak all over the place.

    Dislikes: Makes it a little harder to insert the hose into the Bite Valve, but not a deal breaker.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: Works well and light.

    Dislikes: A little bulky

  • . Macon GA

    Likes: Not much too it - works and keeps everything clean.

    Dislikes: Cost? A little pricey.

  • Elizabeth V. Hinton WV

    Likes: exactly what I needed to keep mice away from bit piece at night.

    Dislikes: nothing

  • . Fresno CA

    Likes: A great add-on to my platypus.

    Dislikes: This should be included with the actual platypus water reservoirs, not only that but $5 is a little much for a plastic cover.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: Works as expected.

    Dislikes: Should be included with the bladder. No instructions included. Had to use Internet to confirm how to install it.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: I'm giving this 4 stars for two reasons. First, this cover should come with the Platypus Big Zip, but it's only sold separately. Shame on you, Platypus. Second, there are no instructions with it, so it can be tricky to install on your bite valve. It was very simple to do, just not obvious at first. But it does its job of covering the bite valve, so I can't fault the product.

    Dislikes: Should be included with Platy bladders. Need a diagram or installation instructions.

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: it is very useful

    Dislikes: everything is fine so far

  • William G. Tucson AZ

    Likes: Good idea. I've looked down at my bite valve sitting in the dirt enough times to finally pick this up.

    Dislikes: Doesn't slide out of the way quite as easily as I might like.

  • Tatton J. Meriden KS

    Likes: Since the bite valve mouthpiece is something I plan on putting in my mouth, I'm happy to own this essential piece of equipment designed to keep my mouthpiece clean and away from the elements.

    Dislikes: The installation process was a bit tricky, but that's mostly due to the lack of instructions. Once I figured it out, the work was easy, it just took a bit of staring at.

    (The actual piece that goes in your mouth is removable and that's what one needs to remove in order to install the cover)

    Product rated a 4 out of 5 because I believe this is something important enough that platypus should include with their hydration bladders instead of selling as an accessory.
