I have finally, FINALLY found a water bottle that works for me. Seriously my house is a veritable graveyard of discarded water bottles that did not stand the test of time. I have tried many, many water bottles and they have all failed the leak test until now. I want a bottle that is both easy to drink out of, but that is also not going to leak all over my stuff. I have tried everything from generic cheap bottles I have come across, to store brands such as REI, to more well-known and respected brands such as Nalgene and Camelbak. I have tried different designs. They have all failed because either the lid pops open to easily or something in the bottle design allows for leakage either around the opening or around where the bottle connects to the lid. About a month ago I finally found a bottle that seems like it is going to work for me. My friend Jenny had actually mentioned this particular bottle made by Contigo on her (maybe now defunct) blog quite some time ago, but I had never seen it in any stores when I had been on a hunt for a new water bottle. I actually have one of Contigo’s self-sealing insulated mugs for drinking my hot tea out of in the winter and am happy with it. That combined with Jenny’s recommendation made me decide to actively seek out this particular bottle after my recent water bottle fail. I am super happy with it so far. It’s easy to drink from. It doesn’t leak at all. It is fabulous. I definitely recommend it if you’re in the market for a new water bottle.
