Love the water bottle and the unique design! Nobody will steal this one at work.
I was very excited to see this fashionable, spiky bottle, and in “millennial pink” too! When I first opened it, I was taken aback with her beauty. Upon my first drink, I couldn’t help but notice the silicone sleeve smells pretty weird. We decided we think it smells like pasta with marinara. I let it soak in dish soap and hot water for a few hours and still smells like pasta. I’m going to try the dishwasher tonight. It’s not enough to make me dislike it, but it is a distracting smell.
Love the bottle - or more accurately: the sleeve, as that's really what it's all about. Well, I also love the 'dishwasher-ability' - that's another huge plus for a glass bottle. The small mouth is a complete disaster, though. If you love plastic bottles and are somehow bound to that experience, then the small mouth is for you (sort of - the bottle isn't flexible, so...) - otherwise, I have no idea why they cling to this design feature - it's very limiting, as well as uncomfortable. Let's discuss comfort: it's hard to let air pass back into the bottle as you're drinking, and this *ISN'T* a flexible plastic bottle, so that's not great. Functionality: I can't get my activated charcoal stick holder in there without some serious modification, and even some actual activated charcoal sticks by themselves won't fit. That's a huge bummer. The great stuff: the spikes make this bottle indestructible - it literally bounces back! Which is cool and also just fun (this is while empty - I haven't tried to have it bounce back when full... haha). They also make it super easy to hold - I love that I have a liter in my hands and feel like I'm holding a light toy. The dimensions not only make it very manageable, they also lower the center of gravity, which is great prevention for bottle spills, and make it so that it fits snugly in my fridge door shelf, which is fabulous. All in all - I am pleased, minus the small mouth, which I sincerely hope they update in the future, if/when they do, I hope they keep everything else the same so that I can keep my cool sleeve and just get new glass bottles and caps!
Love the subtle powder pink color and the spikes! This 1L bottle will be perfect to leave in the guest room as their water bottle when we have guests over!
