I know that sounds like an exaggeration but I am serious - this is the MOST AMAZING water bottle ever. I LOVE these bottles. They are hard to find - usually with ice trays and ziplock bags, not with the athletic water bottles - but they are worth the search. I don't use the freezer stick that comes with them because I like ice but when I have used it, it keeps my water cold enough. These things are VERY durable. I cannot tell you the number of times I have dropped one on concrete while rushing to work in the morning...not even a scuff! I have also had them in the dish washer with no issue. Very affordable, too -- less than the water bottles in the "athletic" section. They are super easy to clean. That's the reason I bought one -- I was tired of trying to clean my other more-sporty bottles. It holds a ton of water and the colors are cute. [..............]
Let me start off by saying that you have to search for these big water bottles because when you go into the store you won't find them you have to get someone to look for it well at least that's what I had to do. In any event I bought my husband a 32 oz bottle and it is so durable and I loved the freezable insert I just had to get me one but I knew 32 oz wouldn't be enough for me because I exercise and I need a lot of water so I got this size. Even though it is not the 64oz size I preferred I absolutely love it! The only draw back is the freezable insert bends the straw where overtime I am sure eventually it will break the straw but if I want cold water I just fill it up and put it in the fridge overnight or in the freezer for a few hours. I have left this bottle in the freezer overnight by accident and it was fine but it was only half full but I don't recommend doing it when it is full.
