I bought three of these a couple months ago the colors are very nice they keep the drinks cold or hot for at least 8 hours the portion sizes perfect and the size of the mouth is perfect . At. under five bucks each I would say give these a chance you won’t be disappointed
I have gotten similar ones before, but I thought they had a couple of problems. No nice way to get ice in the bottle. In Texas, that is a problem. Also, when I want a drink, which is every 5 minutes, I have to use two hands, unscrew the lid to drink and then be sure I don’t drop the lid so it doesn’t roll under a car or something. If I am trying to carry something with me, I run out of hands. I find the larger openings and flip top lids with a handle are a lot better for me!
@ripper69 You don’t need ice, they’re temperature insulated. I keep them in my hot car for hours and hours after refrigerating/freezing them all night, and they remain chilled even in the blistering heat.
@ripper69 these are some great points, thank you. i use my nalgene 24/7 but it does sweat and doesn’t have any insulating properties. however, it holds twice as much, has a wide mouth for easy cleaning & ice adding, and the lid is attached (and the little plastic strip makes it easy to carry on a finger if i’m carrying a ton of other stuff). i live in boston but my kitchen sink has outdoor plumbing so you could wait an hour this time of year and still not get cold water from the tap. ice is a must. (refrigerating overnight is a no-go because it takes too long and tap water has a limited shelf life for being good tasting.)
@kalma@ripper69 That’s just a matter of opinion and we agree to disagree. To me anything below skin temperature is cool/lukewarm and anything under… Say, 55 degrees fahrenheit is cold enough for me. Anything with ice is too cold and almost hurts.
Got these previously. Yes, IF I know I will want to use it in the AM and only fill it that one time, it’s okay to pre- chill it. But if I want to use/refill on the fly the inability to add ice means I grab something else to take.

@Tigger_1968 You don’t want to put insulated bottles or cups in the dishwasher. The extreme heat can break the seal. A good bottle brush (which may be hard with these because the opening is so small) and soaking for 10 minutes in hot soapy water is usually enough to get them clean.
@ostephy@Tigger_1968 Which heat situation is bad for them, the temperature of the water or the heat drying? It would seem to me the hot water shouldn’t be a problem as these things hold scalding hot coffee, so if you were to put them in the dishwasher and turn the heated drying element off, do you think that would be okay?
The neck is too small for ice cubes, and that’s a good thing. What is it with the ice cube people? If you want water, then drink water. If you want to crunch ice, then go crunch ice. But don’t hide solid water in my drink. Don’t dilute my drink. Want it cold? Refrigerate it. No ice.
