I went through this same dilemma. I read the reviews and the aquasana has mediocre reviews. I got the takeya bottle (not sure if it's made in USA). Not to state the obvious, but glass will break, regardless of the protective sleeve and thickness of the glass. I just broke mine by accidentally dropping it on a concrete driveway. Read the reviews of takeya, lifeway, and aquasana bottles and see what the advantages of each are. With that knowledge, and knowing what you want a water bottle to do, you will be able to make an informed decision.

This one is my favorite; we have several others in glass plastic, or stainless steel, different styles. I don't know about "made in USA" since don't have the tag but it is *glass*, and has a convenient pop-top lid that is easier than most, but really closes tightly. Good design for holding too, not heavy. Aladdin makes BPA-free plastic designs and good smaller vacuum stainless steel bottles too. Search here. (I've tried several over the years.)

They run 9.99-10.99 ea, 12 or 24oz bottle; two links so you can see the look and colors. These are BPA-free plastic -- they make glass also--cannot find that link. See similar designs.

Edit: you said glass, but this stainless vacuum bottle (also Aladdin, $25) keeps contents cold for 8hrs, and is really nice. It's my backup.

Polyethylene lab ware is cheap, durable and works fine, but you'll miss the hint of seasoned goat bladder.

I switched my coffee mug to stainless recently because of the plastic. Mine was like 15 years old, so I figured it was probably time. I was careful to choose one that had stainless inside too (not just stainless outside.) I picked this Contigo one. The reason I posted this is because although the mug part IS stainless, the lid is plastic...so you have your mouth on plastic (and the liquid has to pass through it) for every sip. It seems the water ones also have lids made from different colored, harder plastic. Are the lids/mouthpieces also safe? They say what the container is made of, but I never really saw much info on if the lid is just as BPA free/safe? My coffee ones do smell/taste of coffee when I switch to something like iced tea. Does anyone know if the lids are made with the same standard/safety as the cup part?

if you believe they hype about it we all should be dead by now. this stuff has been in our food supply since before most of us were born.

this is standard procedure these days. you create a big scare about how something everyone uses is going to KILL you, then you convince everyone the solution is to throw out the perfectly good things they have and replace them with something 'safer' and laugh all the way to the bank.

As someone seemingly well-informed on the use of unwitting American consumers as guinea pigs, LosAngelesLMT, would you consider polyethylene bottles safe from leaching estrogenic compounds or other noxious crap into their contents?

Nearly all glassware and plastic bottles are lead-free, excluding leaded crystal. BPA or bisphenol A is used in plastics and is not found in glass.
