I have more water bottles than I really need, but I get a lot of use out of them. I generally always have a water bottle at my side. I usually drink out of bottles at home instead of glasses/cups. I really like the 27oz. Klean Kanteen as an all-purpose bottle so I figured I'd try the 40oz. as well. The capacity is nice, and it's the great quality stainless you know and expect from Klean Kanteen. The colors are great - vibrant and shiny. KK uses non-toxic paints, if that matters to you. Overall it's a fantastic product, the only reason I don't use it as much as the 27oz. is that it's just bulkier - doesn't fit in many cup-holders, etc. But what do you expect with 40oz.? I mostly use it as a bedside/around-the-house water bottle.

I bought this to double my Insulated Kanteen as a travel coffee mug. Here's the thing: it's not leakproof at all. It's a neat design and it's very easy to clean (it snaps apart for cleaning purposes so no bacteria will harbor in the cracks - as something of a germaphobe, I can appreciate this) but this sorta decreases its functionality as a lid. So here's what you do: if you're gonna be commuting, carry the hot liquid with your Kanteen's standard screw-on lid, then when you arrive at your destination and are ready to start sipping, switch the lids out. It may be kind of a hassle, but to be honest, it's really hard to find a decent travel mug that's leakproof anyway.

Whether I'm at home, at work, on the trail, or driving, I generally always have a water bottle at my side. I've used a lot of different brands - I like Nalgenes in the backcountry, I dig HydroFlask for thermos-purposes, but when I want a general all-purpose water bottle to carry around, I recommend Klean Kanteen. The lightweight 27oz. is just perfect - it fits in pretty much any cup-holder, it can clip to anything without weighing much, it can fit in pockets, and it's made from superior quality stainless steel. The colored finish is always vibrant, shiny and attractive. And it's a great company to support. Don't hesitate to pick one up.

I can't say much about these that hasn't already been said. The retro cool factor is there, the Oakley lens quality is there, but I can't really say they seem like a hundred-dollar pair of sunglasses. I'd still recommend them if the price doesn't bother you. They're very comfortable and, well, just plain cool. One thing I can add: I have the Polished Rootbeer version, and the frames seem considerably darker in person than they look on the website. Not sure if that applies to all of them, but there ya go.

I've converted from Nalgene to HydroFlask for my everyday work water bottle. The flask's ability to keep water cold is a major plus (something I didn't even think I'd care much about until I started using HydroFlask and the advantage was clear), and the versatility really wins it for me (I can use it for coffee or drink mixes without having to worry about it retaining scents the way Nalgenes do). Also, this thing is a beast. It's almost (just almost) too large to carry around frequently but come on, it's worth it. It holds a lot of water.

If you're not into the coffee lid, HydroFlask's standard wide-mouth lid also fits this bottle perfectly (for a completely leak-proof seal). HydroFlask offers em on their website for cheap, or you can switcheroo if you already have another wide-mouth HydroFlask. As for the flask itself, it rocks. It keeps my coffee hot for way longer than my Starbucks travel tumbler, for what it's worth. I also use it as a coldwater bottle and it's great for that too.
