Judging more by the looks of it
on March 18, 2013
Encasing my water without plastics seemed really tempting, so I bought this cap to replace a chipping, plastic one. A couple points knocked down my appreciation.
1. I wish Klean Kanteen, or other authorized resellers of their products would offer these caps when originally purchasing bottles. I would not mind initially spending a little extra for the option to have just one cap I want as opposed to replacing another, which means wasted materials for shipping and for producing a cap that now just collects dust. That being said, Klean Kanteen does offer a bottle with a matching bamboo-metal cap, but the bamboo just couldn't stand up to my demanding life.
2. The cap is a little shorter and offers a little less threading than its plastic counterpart. In order to avoid sudden leaking in your bag, you really have to crank the top - no lackadaisical twisting when you're trying to multi-task. I have learned my lesson.
Despite these slight nuisances, I'm mostly please with my new cap: the all-over-silver look my bottle now has is stunning. I am comfortable with admitting that I appreciate this cap more because of the cohesion it brings to my water bottle than its function. It is industriously chic.
