I bought this because I was looking for an everyday water bottle I could carry around with me, especially when I'm cycling. Most importantly, as we're currently undergoing a heatwave, I needed something that would keep the contents cold for as long as I needed. I also really needed something big, as my current water bottle was too small. Thankfully, this bottle satisfies on all counts. Its sturdy, thick metal design holds a lot of water (be warned, it can get heavy when full!). I would say it'll stand-up to all sorts of punishment, as evidenced by it already having a dent in it before I bought it. It's also got a neat little clip on top for attaching it to your bag, belt or whatever. The only downside (apart from the dent!) is the cap. It's simply a screw-top peg-type lid, which means you have to drink straight from the metal neck of the bottle. There's no spout or additional lid to drink through, unlike other water bottles out there.
