The Full Review: I drink a lot of water every day, typically over a gallon. I used to have to bring multiple Nalgene bottles with me every day and it became a lot to keep up with. When this bottle came out I bought one right away and I LOVE it. The lid getting stuck may present more of an issue in the summer but in the cooler months I just refill it through the smaller cap. I have not tried to put ice in it yet through this hole.
My theory is that when the lid gets cold it shrinks. When it does this it leaks so I tighten it but then when it warms back up the lid expands and becomes very difficult to open again. To get it unstuck I just use something to give me a little extra leverage to pop it open.
Pros: Holds my daily allowance of water all in one container – no more carrying 2 or 3 bottles with me through out the day.
Magnetic cap keeps it close
Main handle is rubberized and very easy to grasp
Cons: Heavy, full to the brim with water it weighs several pounds.
The larger, main lid, sometimes gets stuck.
Love it or leave it (open to new wording here): If you have need to this much hot or cold beverage for your day out, I highly recommend this product.
