So, I've realized now that I am the kind of person who doesn't mind drinking water throughout the day [it really is beneficial]... but what will get me to drink it all the more is if I've got a good waterbottle to drink out of. Now, I'm not really concerned about BPA-free plastic or saving the planet, but I just like having a consistent product to use.

Here's the catch... i'm a college student. I can't spend $50+ on a waterbottle. I really don't even want to spend more than $20, but I am willing to pay that kind of price for 'good' design.

I've looked at the Bobble Bottle, not much of a fan and some other bottles..
I don't like the stainless steel kind (they get too cold & sweaty, and I hate screwing the caps off).
And I don't like the straw idea of Nalgene bottles either.

perhaps I'm being too picky, and I need to just be satisfied drinking out of a cup.
Just wanted to throw this out here & see if other people are as irked as me

These Stanley water bottles are pretty fresh. Super utilitarian.

This has been up in my browser tabs for six months. I like that it's glass internally, and that both ends unscrew so you can really clean it:

I heard that Kor one is ridiculously heavy.

I drink tap, but I have a few Nalgene-style bottles from company promotions. I don't really use them when I'm on campus.

The Kor bottle seems like it's a bit much... isn't it made up of 30 pieces?
But that bamboo one looks really cool. And yes, the fact that you can clean it from both ends is a very nice touch!
But, because it's glass on the inside can it break easily if it's dropped?

I like that Stanley bottle btw

I "had" a Kor One until recently.
Unfortunately it fell off my kitchen counter upon hitting the floor the plastic hinge detail that holds the lid on snapped making the lid useless.
while it is beautiful... sometimes simpler is better.
