I feel like Goldilocks. I've tried a lot of these water bottles and there's always been something not quite right. Until this one. And it's perfect. It's not too big, not too small, fits just right (in the hand), it's easy to drink from, the lid works great, the loop is practical, and it's really cute! (I got the sage green). I've been trying to find some kind of adequate water situation forever to deal with my nasty tasting tap water, and I've been drinking a lot of La Croix and I'm not happy about the aluminum cans. So after many futile attempts at finding a water system, I finally broke down and bought a Berkey Water Filter and this bottle, and it's all perfect now. Great tasting water and a great bottle from which to drink it. I'm going to buy a second bottle so one will always be in the fridge chilling. Truly love this bottle!
