Let's hope there's none of it impacted in my innards.
Stick to plain unless you like to handle a steel bottle the way you would a wine glass.
Some cons. May be heavy for very young children when filled. Dropping it makes a huge clatter. Can be dangerous when dropped on bare feet. Made a soft fabric cover for the bottle as cushion/insulation/ease of carrying.
Major advantage: it doesn't leak.
Other advantages: durable, large capacity, large mouth (makes cleaning very easy), stainless steel (helps prevent nasty stuff from growing in the bottle).
The bottle is thick enough to be rigid but thin enough to be light when empty. The paint is of high quality and does not scuff, chip or scratch easily (a problem with cheaper bottles). The color is accurately portrayed in the images.
The bottom of the bottle is very round which reduces the footprint of the bottle and makes it easier to tip than other bottles. Not by a huge margin but I wish the bottom of the bottle was a bit more flat.
The bottle only comes with the cap displayed in the pictures so I had to order a plain cap from Amazon as I am not a fan of the snap caps.
Overall I like this bottle a lot and will likely order another once this one gets banged up.
CONS: It is not insulated — I went on a hike with two water bottles, this one and a more expensive metal insulated one. This one had warm water after an hour and the other bottle’s water was still cold. So if you want to keep things cold/hot I would recommend looking for an insulated bottle instead. Insulated bottles are much more expensive though.
If you just want a basic bottle, this is not a bad buy. Having a bunch of different bottles, this is my favorite one under $20.
The problem is with the sippable sports tops: They're awful.
Yes, as many here have posted, they make a noise like a 12-year-old polishing off a thick shake every time you draw a drink. The company has even posted a suggested improvised fix involving loosening the cap as you sip (Gee, could that cause its own problems?) and holding the bottle just so.... Really? Why not just fix the problem at the design end!
But just as bad, in my experience, is that the tops, even when closed, are not watertight. Picture this: You've stowed your bottle in a side pocket of your back sack. You bend over to tie your shoelace, or pick up a dropped pen, or to lock up your bike (this has happened to me a dozen times) -- and you realize water is running down your pant leg into your shoe. Good times!
Now, you might say, "But John, the small print on the tag warns you the closable sports cap isn't watertight. That's your fault! And besides, clearly it's not easy to engineer a leakproof drinking cap!" Well, perhaps fair enough, but still, I wondered...
And guess what? I noticed an old cheap plastic bike bottle lying around, with a sports top...and it fit the Klean Kanteen perfectly. And yes! The top off this old six or seven dollar cheapie a) makes no horses-at-the-trough noise when I drink, nor b) does it spill all over me if I spot a quarter on the sidewalk, or pack it sidewise in a pannier for a bike ride. It works just fine!
In other words, a well-functioning sports cap--a cheap well-functioning sports cap -- is doable!
Just not by Klean Kanteen, apparently.
I was a fan. This is my third bottle, after two (with loop caps) got lost/liberated.
But I'm no fan of the sports cap, which KK says is their most popular model.
I'd stay away--until KK gets it together and fixes this easily fixable problem!
