We are definitely a water bottle family and we use them daily. Between sport activities, exercising, taking walks outside, swimming, hiking, biking, going to work, etc., we are always on the go and are always taking a water bottle with us.
I would specify this water bottle to be used for either indoor or outdoor activities and to be used when you don't have to carry the bottle in your hands for too long of a period of time.
There are several things that I like about this water bottle. I really like the size of this water bottle -- it holds a little over 25 ounces and keeps things cold and hot for over 12 hours.. The mouth of this water bottle is large enough to hold regular sized ice cubes from the fridge and is the perfect size for me to drink out of - I prefer drinking out of a wide mouth hole vs.a straw. The lid is a simple screw on cap that really secures firmly and tightly. I like that it has a silicone-like stopper to really insure that the bottle is leakproof. It is definitely leak proof as I tested it and shook it for a long time upside down without a single drip leaking. Since the bottle is leakproof, it can be easily thrown into a bag or backpack for transport. The stainless steel is very solid and sleek. This bottle is very rugged and durable and made with high quality materials.
I do wish that the bottle was easier to hold and carry though. My hands feel like they are a bit stretched when holding it and it can be a tad bothersome when holding the bottle for a long period of time. I wish it had a loop or hook of sorts (something around the top) to be able to carry easily. My husband doesn't have any issues carrying this for long periods since his hands are a bit larger.
I really like this water bottle and would highly recommend it for certain activities. I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest review. Like you, I use reviews to make purchases through Amazon so, I've provided a review that is truthful and completely hones.....
