Beautiful, functional, solid, durable, affordable, holds water.

The "made in Switzerland" gets me every time. With those three words, I basically have to buy it.

This is one of the top 10 favorite products I own.

LOL, have you seen "127 Hours"? There is a line in it that cracked me up. :D

BTW, a waterbottle has a big starring role in it too.

That Sigg is actually a fuel bottle. No problem using it for water as long as you never use it for fuel, but I personally find it to cumbersome to open/close.

I usually just reuse/refill a 'bottled water' bottle. If I wanna be fancy I'll use one of these (the glass version):

Sigg's cool and everything, just a pain in the a** to clean, IMO.

Oh yes, never fill in anything else but water. :roll:

There is only one right way to consume tap water: Use it in a coffee maker :D

I love this thread. The Kor Delta has been in my amazon wish list for a couple months now. I really like that Stanley one though, and it'll look great next to my Stanley thermos.

The 500 ml is $20.

Agreed.

About these Kor gizmos - are there so many IDers (and ID fans) out there to buy them? I think its a bloat product considering the use case and efforts made to design and produce them.

Waterbottles always end up stinking ...
As do coffee thermos bottles (which also get stained with caffeine). I contacted Stanley customer service for advice on how to get the crud out of the bottom of my 1.1 Qt. "Thermos" vacuum-bottle. I thought maybe they could recommend where I could get a long brush.

Image

Instead their rep suggested I dump 1 teaspoon of "Oxi-Clean Powder" into the Thermos, fill it with hot water, and leave it overnight. I was completely skeptical, but the next morning the interior looked like it was just manufactured. I've since used the trick to clean HDPE containers as well.

Tomorrow
I'll share a tip with you about how to get that awful lingering burnt-popcorn stink out of the microwave! :wink:

OT: Without using acetone? ;-) (At least pull the plug and stop smoking when performing such stunts, the "kawoom"-risk is pretty high 8) )

Actually the SIGG is only for hydration, fuel would immediately ruin the inner lining.

I think you're thinking of this...
Image

I actually called MSR to ask if I could use the fuel bottle as a water bottle and they said no, due to the chemical used for its lining.

The SIGG is a pain to open and close, but so is sitting in and out of a Gullwing. It gets water to my mouth pretty well otherwise

Hm.. you're right. But I can't be the only one to mix them up. You get quite a few hits if you google 'Sigg fuel bottle' ;)
