Big things come in small packages sometimes! The removable Select-Flow Valve can be barely seen in the bottom of the straw, yet it makes drinking from a straw much easier. Liquid goes up into the straw, but does not flow back down into the cup. In other words, the straw always stays "full" of liquid, so you don't have to draw liquid up the full length of the straw and only a very small amount of suction is required to take a sip.
