That's one of cheapest and most stable PET bottles on the market. It's a reusable deposit bottle and, therefore, a "true" ID mass product which comes already filled by the Coca Cola Company (with tap water :lol:, they sell the same water as in coke, just without the syrup) .

Many Germans are so familiar with drinking bottled water containing H2CO3, they voluntarily add (the preservative agent) CO2 even to tap water to make it taste appropriate (for them) :D

Really?!?

I generally prefer to get my H2CO3 in the green bottles they have at the store. Image

Now, if we could get Spaten to switch over to screw-on caps, we'd have an unlimited source of "free" water bottles as well.

Be honest, despite the fact that this "water bottle" is NSFW, you would be disappointed everytime you drink water from a German beer bottle.

You are right...

I like the Nike water bottle that I keep in my golf bag.

Just caught a friend who hada Starbucks version of that Japanese bottle Yo posted. Different lid mechanism and a silicone sleeve, but same thing. Saw it at Starbucks today and is indeed made in Japan so likely the same thing. 16.99 USD, 19.99 CDN I think. I was gonna pick one up except didn't like the molded in Starbucks logo in the handle. The sleeve can be removed I think which also has a logo built in.

I saw this same one in Starbucks yesterday. It had a silicone-ish over sleeve over the glass. It was nice...although I'd prefer it w/o the Starbucks name on it.

I'm with Danish on his picky search for the perfect watter bottle, for i am on the same quest. I recently had a stainless steel bottle that i loved, one because re-filled plastic bottles aren't beautiful and some of the can leech harmful substances or bacteria if not washed properly or if they aren't made of PET http://www.plasticsinfo.org/beveragebot ... aqs.html#1
Well, the water bottle lasted a few months until one morning i put in in the freezer before going out biking, my plans later got cancelled and i unknowingly left the water bottle in there for some while... when i finally remembered the ice had totally busted open the whole bottom part of the bottle.. making it completely useless. It would be nice to find a bottle that isn't too heavy, that has an easy, quick, comfortable sistem (unlike screwing tops and sucking straws :roll: ).
I like the Alex bottle that someone mentioned.. looks sweet, plus super easy to clean, and you can even change the size from 20 oz to 32 oz! awesomeee
From an aesthetic point of the view those new Kor bottles look sweet too, has anyone tried them? are they comfortable? delicate? they are beautiful..

yes! exactly my point, if I have a nice water bottle, I am more willing to go fill it up continuously through the day and guzzle that stuff down! ha.

And i do like the look of those kor bottles. I have to do some more inspection but they don't look as complex as their other ones.
