Since this bottle is so big, it won't fit in the cup holder in my van. So I have to lay it on the passenger seat, and when it's on it's side, it leaks, no matter how hard I screw the lid down. The other problem is that it doesn't have any kind of handle, just a rubber loop for carrying. Because it's so bulky, it's awkward trying to hold it when drinking, especially when it's full. The good news is that it really keeps your water cold for a long time, and the color finish on the bottle is very durable. The cleaning brush and extra straws are handy, and the alternate chugging lid is nice. I know that a 32 oz. bottle is going to be unwieldy. But the leaking is inexcusable. Considering the high price, I hesitate to recommend it. UPDATE: The leakage eventually stopped when I screw the lid down really tight. But now, ghere's another issue. The lid has a rubber flip up tube with a straw attached. Very handy. But the rubber eventually absorbs bacteria and other gunk, so it has an odor, kind of like mildew. And it's impossible to wash it off. I've soaked it in soapy water, vinegar, run it through the dishwasher---nothing gets rid of the odor. I may try bleach. Replacement lids are $10. I'll probably have to get one.
I truly wanted to love this product and for the most part I do. Not sure if I received a used item..but for some reason, around the rim the paint is chipped off almost like it wasn't sealed to it properly. I'm going to keep using it because it is still functional and really gorgeous, just kinda bummed. There's also a weird black stain/scuff around the logo?
My daughter was so excited to finally be able to start using this bottle for being back at school but soon she noticed it was leaking all over the inside if her backpack if it wasn’t sitting straight up! She is devastated because she loves the color and the handle on it is great for her little hands but the leaking has been too frustrating to use. It looks like the sealing ring under the cap does not fit right. It is coming up on certain areas. I’ve tried to push it back in but it doesn’t even go in. It’s not made to fit and made poorly. Now it’s too late to exchange this item!! I am so disappointed.
The main issue is with the lids that attach to the bottle. While they come with a handle for carrying the bottle with it, doing so can be problematic.
Not to much in the way of threading so when the bottle is filled and you carry it by the handle it has a tendency to pull loose from the cap with the resulting falling to the floor and spilling of the liquid.
We did find that if you REALLY tighten down the one cap [to comes with two] it stays on most of the time. The other cap, even tightened down it will often pull loose.
We have learned our lesson and no longer use the handle to carry the bottle with - if that is something you tend to do I would go with another product.
Didn’t get a chance to use it yet… it’s missing items. Description says it comes with two caps and two straws and I received one cap and one straw. Looking for help to contact the seller to see if I can get the missing pieces or if I have to return it?? Looks real pretty other than the missing items. Disappointed that I didn’t get what I expected.
Update… the seller is sending me a replacement bottle. Will see if this has all the rights pieces included. Still have yet to use it since I wasn’t sure if I had to return it or could just get the missing pieces.
I bought this for many hikes in NM. My brother had another band's installation water bottle. He filled his bottled the night before with water and ice. I filled this bottle the day of my hikes with water and ice. I can say my water DID NOT stay cold at the end of my days. My brother's water was cold while mine was slightly cold with all the ice melted. I would NOT recommended this bottle. (FYI: weather in NM was average 75 degree with low humidity)
I’ll start with one positive note - the container has a Nice appearance overall and didn’t leak out the top when tipped. As far as functional, it’s anything but. I work in the heat so I put it to the test, it would hold ice for about two hours which is disappointing. Even more so is the fact that it sweats and leaves a ring of water wherever i set it. If you’re expecting your drink to stay cold for awhile then this product is not for you.
Honestly pretty disappointed because I purchased a similar product in the past from a different brand & it worked very well. It was time for a new water bottle & I liked the color options from Elvira so ordered from here this time. My ice seems to melt faster than if it were in a plastic water bottle. I often open at work and I work in food so can get ice there. When I wake up I fill it halfway with ice and it is already melted & not very cold by the time I get to work. My last bottle had my ice lasting until my next shift sometimes. Based on others’ reviews I’m not sure if mine is just defective, but it is really unfortunate because I was excited for the product as I put it to use everyday.
