Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I went to the store to get a new larger water bottle, the water bottles they had were kinda tacky and overall just sad looking. Then, there were these things. I was like.. Those things look kinda weird. I started to squeeze them and check out the valve system they created. I bought one for myself and one for the wife when we go to the gym.

Yep, one of the best purchases I have made in awhile. Now, do I want to use it on my road bike? The pretty large opening/tip seems like it would end up being like an over eager woman of the night and by morning who knows what you would pull out of there? I feel the same thing would go on using this on a bike. Bugs? Gravel? Sand? I am talking about the bottle, not the woman of the night, get your mind out of the gutter.

The insulation seems to work really well too. Though, if you are trying to hydrate, having super cold water does you no good until your body raises the liquid back up to body temp anyhow before it can absorb it. A sloshy stomach isn't all that comfortable.

I would definitely recommend this bottle for the gym, or even driving in the car, or being at work.

I wanted to get a bladder to hold Mai tai's when we go to the beach. Yeah, I know this isn't a bladder. The bladders I was looking at didn't have the cool features this thing has.
The large screw top opening, the loop to hold onto it, or use a carabiner through, but especially the spout, the partial twist cap is the star of the bottle.

Making Mai tai's will be so easy with these things, ingredients go in, both go into the cooler and then pouring will be a snap, or actually I should say as easy as a quick turn.

What else would I use these things for? I don't usually use cups for water while hiking or camping. What else do you pour? I can't think of anything, so these are just going to be for booze at the beach.

I saw these online and I wanted to check them out. I read a review where someone said they are very flimsy and trying to hold onto them while filling , or pouring was difficult, not to mention dealing with the cap that you would have to set down somewhere while you are filling or pouring.
The 2 liter seems more rigid than the 3 liter, which feels really flimsy. It isn't the flimsiness that is the issue, it is the lack of other features that other comparable bottles have.

I think it is a good start, but to make it better they should have made a lid that was tethered onto the bottle. After seeing them and handling both sizes.. I passed on getting either.

I bet the next generation of these will be even better once they get more feedback from consumers.
