This is my third bottle. My first was stolen, my second broke and I am guarding this one with my life. The water bottle is on the pricey side, but I appreciate the design value and uniqueness. It's easy to carry and looks really stylish. I like that the drinking spout isn't threaded (ribbed), so drinking is easy also. Finally, the designers have added a spot at the top of the bottle for a motivational saying or thought. You can change these to suit your preference. I'd recommend this as a gift also.
