Looks Like We Need Another Water Bottle

I’ve done something that I thought impossible: I destroyed a Sigg. I’m just that talented. The metal water bottle lasted years, but I killed it by leaving it in the car over Christmas. It was full of water, and when it froze, it split straight up the side.

So what did I get to replace it? I loved how sturdy the Sigg was, but the top was so tiny that it was a pain to wash without a bottle brush. And since I couldn’t actually see to the bottom of it, I never quite knew if it was clean. So this time I got a Camelbak. They’re now BPA-free #7 plastic (co-polyester rather than polycarbonate, apparently) and even Umbra-approved.


It’s probably silly to put this much thought into a water bottle, but they last for years, and I use mine a million times a day. Sometimes it’s the little things…

I’m a huge fan of my camelbaks. So much, I have one for work, one for home and one to take to the gym. 🙂

That’s two votes for Camelbaks…
