Been using one of these for a couple months. Glass bottle with a silicone sleeve. Not bad:

That 321 looks a lot like my Senior Project from 08'. Just goes to show you design is global.

I just bought one of those KOR steel bottles in all black. It's beautiful but the spout is tough to get back on after washing or mixing Gatorade so I'm not sure what I think of it yet.

Has anyone mentioned Klean yet?

I recently converted to drinking water at work, and lately I have been carrying around a gallon sized milk carton... not ideal but I enjoy the healthy lifestyle. Then one of my colleagues brought in one of his Klean Kanteens. He has the largest one. It supposedly holds the amount of water the average person should drink a day. 64 oz . There are smaller ones as well.

I like how it is stainless steal, so no BPA worries, and the design is definitely appropriate.
Here is their site. My colleague bought his on Amazon for a lot cheaper, something like $20 instead of the $32 listed on the company site.

I'm probably going to buy the 64 0z one for my water needs, and then a 27 0z one for protein shakes.

an opinion question:

ive been following this discussion, and i think that important issues have come up, and that the opinions given are pretty interesting and good feedback.. so IIII would love some opinions!!!! pleassssee :D :D :D :

for an assignment, ive been sudying up on what elements are expected in a water bottle, and things to consider in a reusable water bottle.. and ive come up with the idea of creatin a water bottle that is kind of like a standard water bottle i guess you could say... a water bottle you can take to work, on a run, fits in your bike, fits in your car, etc. a water bottle that adapts to your situacion, wether it be sports, adventure, or urban life. my teacher isnt very convinced that this idea is something people would be interested in, (that people prefer a product made for a specific use or situacion) but i think it is since most water bottles dont adapt to more than 1 situation.. for instance one might be good for camping but doesnt fit in cupand bottleholders, or it might be attractive but it isn't comfortable or the opening is too big or too small... etc and this would be a bottle that is easy to clean(because the bottom screws off), easy to use, has more than one opening for different situations, (one for biking or sports, and 2 different sized screw-on tops), has a place to put a strap, and fits in standard bottle holders.

i looked into cooling materials and figured maybe aluminum would be best, with a plastic bottom and top? also i thought of giving it a transparency line with an mL measure.. would do you guys think?

I think it is a very relevant topic, I always buy those SPA Rood, sparkling water bottles, use them for a couple of days until I have the inner feeling that it is no good anymore, then I buy a new one. But I love the colour and the touch of the bottle. So why all blue and green, if I am going to go plastic, why not red?

There is this other reason... I feel bad about the plastic waste I produce through it but I keep forgetting them around as well.. so I don't feel horrible about paying so much money for something I will forget somewhere within a week.

cabobean,

I've been using the same 40.oz kleen Kanteen for years. It's made with food-grade stainless steel that's totally free of BPA and other toxins...

Kleen Kanteen : Reflect

Digging the bamboo cap and mirror finish. Brushed is nice too. Too bad they're sold out. *Edit - Available on Amazon. Purchased. Check. I have been using a SIGG bottle for a long time and think this would be a nice alternative. I got a bit distracted as this isn't a cheap water bottle. A nice design though.

My 321 water bottle http://www.321water.com is dead!
321 survived several months of use (including 3 weeks travel around Italy) however I accidently dropped it and the plastic bottle shattered:( After initialy spending $70 including P+H which is a lot for a water bottle I can't see the point in spending another $30 for a replacement bottle which might not survive long either.

Metal bottle here I come!

I got a Takeya classic (blue) and so far, it's doing okay. The weight is kind of annoying, so I mostly use it in my room instead of taking it out and about NYC on my 40 minute commute.

Bump.

Kinto TRAVEL Tumbler. The detachable rim is clever, makes for easier pouring and cleaning.

But caution, read the last bullet, "User recommandations: do not go to the dishwasher". :D
