It should definitely be one of your water bottles
on October 29, 2015
My daughter has been using Klean Kanteen water bottles for a couple of years now. We absolutely do not use any kind of plastic even if it's BPA free . We only use either glass or stainless steel.
This bottle will last you a long time. It's great for elementary school kids, just the right size to hold just enough water for the day.
I usually don't go for the color/printed versions since they get scratched and look old pretty fast. Also the plain stainless ones are neutral and both my daughter and son can use them. You can see in the pic attached that I got a sippy spout for one of them, which will be replaced with the loop cap when my toddler is ready.
This one has been dropped on all kinds of surfaces numerous times. It does get dented slightly eventually, but it has never leaked or ruined her backpack/lunch-bag ever.
Another reason for the bottle not leaking is the really tight cap. This is both a positive for why it never leaks and the reason I took away a star. Sometimes the cap gets so tight that my daughter is unable to open it and it's even a little bit tough for me, but this happens occasionally. I make sure I don't get carried away and give it too many turns while closing it.
Now coming to the cleaning part - It is a breeze cleaning this bottle! No straws and small parts to mess with! You can rest assured you will have no funky smell because of improper cleaning.
I only use this for cold water. My kids prefer slightly cold to room temperature water, so this bottle works just fine for us. If you wanted your water to stay cold, it would do that for a couple of hours, I guess.
Overall, a great product and it should definitely be one of the water bottles you own.
