You know, I had a hard time figuring out how to get the water out of my tube too! LOL! That's why I was looking for instructions! It helped that I found out the black rubbery thing on the end was called a "bite-valve." Mine workes by biting (incisors) on the little groove at the end and then sucking the water out at the same time. I felt really silly trying to get the water out before I figured that out...
Good thing I tried it at home... That way nobody will know... (shhhh!)
Cool, glad to hear you like it, since I was considering ordering that one soon. And the bouncing/sliding thing was my concern. On my 10+mile runs, things that don't usually bother me start to rub, bounce, irritate, etc.
And here is a strange question for you..is there a valve or something to open to get the water to come out, or do you have to suck it out?

What are your opinions on the maintennance of the Camelbak? I would imagine that keeping it sanitary is a pain. How do you clean the tube and the bite valve?
