I'm looking for a good water bottle, with a straw, that doesn't leak. I'm willing to pay more for it, if it actually exists. I've tried a few and they all leak, camelbak better bottle, and contigo.
Any suggestions appreciated.
You might try the Nalgene multi-drink. It seems overly complicated to me, but it is a water bottle, with a straw.
Thanks but I already tried one, it leaked and it broke. Certainly overly complicated.
How about the bottle it (water) comes in. Free. I always have a drink bottle of some kind around I can refill with water. If it gets too funked up just toss it and get another.
That might be my only option I guess. I know it sounds ridiculous, but I find it much easier to take a quick drink of water with the straw style bottles, to the point that I stay better hydrated when I have one with me. If the free water bottles had a straw and didn't leak, my problem would be solved.
I have the same one! Good tastes, or should I say tastes good? < we need a stupid humor smiley
I personally put my bottles on the passenger seat/floor and use the 32 oz wide mouth nalgene, I want a 16 oz narrow mouth. I also use .6 or .75 CamelBak eddy bottle that can fit in cup holders depending how big they are. The .6l fits into more. I hate metal bottles as they are obnoxiously noisy if dropped, have a metallicy taste, and don't insulate nearly as well (a regular plastic bottle doesn't insulate well but it's quite a bit better than the metal ones).
Specialized Purist Hydroflo water bottles are awesome.
Really squeezable plastic with a valve built into it so even if it's pulled open it wont leak unless squeezed.
Let me know via PM if you want to try one out.
Is the valve like those on a CamelBak Podium (the little rubber thing that opens when you squeeze or suck)? If so I think I'm gonna have to get one, as the problem with the CamelBak Podium was they are to darn hard to squeeze.
Yea identical to that valve. Exactly the reason I like them so much.
The Hydroflo is the extra squeezable one but all of their bottles are more-so squishy than the Podiums.
I like my Bubba Hero's and Neo Vas. Walmart has the Hero mugs for $10 for the 16 oz and $12 for the 20 oz. They also have a 24, but it's too big for some cup holders.
