Holding 8oz more than a quart-sized bottle, the 40oz Kanteen Wide is the ultimate bottle for long road trips or the backcountry. The extra wide opening is more than 2 inches in diameter for quick filling, pouring and cleaning, and the stainless steel thread design works with standard backcountry water filters.

One thing it does deliver perfectly on, is that your drink doesn't touch anything but stainless steel and a very thin gasket.
But my bigger problem with the 40oz Klean Kanteen is that the steel is very thin, probably the same thickness as their much smaller bottles. So it dents really easily, even minor falls cause denting. I've had to pound it out a few times just so it sits flat on a table. Figure for the price that they'd make it a few 1000th of an inch thicker. I've tried other brands that are MUCH more durable. They have a "strong as steel" guarantee, but in this case it's so thin it's not nearly as durable as the old naglene plastic bottles.

I went from drinking a nominal daily portion of water. I was dehydrating myself. Not on purpose, but because it just wasn't convenient to to drink. Then comes this water bottle. Combined with a new home Reverse Osmosis system, I'm now drinking and refilling this canteen 2-3 times a day. This puts my water consumption up above 150oz per day, which is a healthy amount to drink!
What sold me is this. Normal plastic water bottles contain phyto estrogens. They also contain other chemicals. I was spending $15 a month on bottled water and not drinking nearly enough of it because of what a pain it was to go to the store. My city water was awful. Here in the U.S. most city water is, it's loaded with chlorine, fluoride, and other contaminants, often particulates of human feces (but the chlorine sanitizes those so it won't give you dysentery). Anyhow, once I set up the RO system, this canteen ensures my now 100% clean water isn't contaminated by a plastic bottle. It doesn't change the taste of the water whatsoever.
I previously used those BPA free water bottle tumblers with the spouts on top when I'd go for a bike ride or something. But no matter what I could always taste the plastic taste of the bottle, even when it was advertised to be high-quality poly material. No plastic bottle will ever compare to a stainless steel canteen.
Is Klean Kanteen the best brand? Well, my lid didn't fit well. I actually ordered two of these. A 64 oz for myself and a 32oz for my wife. The 64 oz is a monster, but I like it that way and almost wish I could get a larger one. For most people, I think the 64oz is going to be too big. The 32oz one my wife got is much more manageable and her lid happened to fit great.
I have yet to try to contact the company about my lid not fitting correctly because it hasn't bothered me that much, except for the few times that I've had water dump all over me as a result. But I'm just so incredibly happy with the amount of water I'm drinking that it's hard for me to complain at all.
Price seems like a big investment? Think about the potentially tens of thousands of reuse in your lifetime alone, amortize that out over time, and it's practically as if the company were giving them to you for free. It's actually like the loans you get to install solar on your house: some up front, but literally pays for itself after you don't buy bottled water about six times...
