    Delivery was quick and packaging fine.

    A bobble bottle comes in three parts - the bottle, the filter and the cap. The latter two bits need replacing every 3-4 months at a cost of around £5 (still a massive saving over buying bottles of water but worth knowing about.

    I bought my bobble as I commute on the tube a lot and I always like to travel with bottle of water. I used to buy bottled water and then refill them a few times before chucking them out (you shouldn't refill ordinary plastic bottles too often as they degrade over time and leak nasty chemicals into your water - although to be honest its not a major problem as most people I know chuck them after a few refills in any event). A bobble bottle is made of different plastic that doesn't have the same chemical compounds so can be refilled as often as you wish.

    So, what's the bobble like to use? First off the shape is distinctive, personally I love the shape and feel of it. When you first get it, you have to soak the filter and give the bottle a rinse - easy to do and a 3 minute job. Assembly is as easy as you would expect (insert filter and.. done!).

    Drinking from the bobble take a bit of practice, you sort of part squeeze and part suck. When I started (and this is the same for many of my friends) it wasn't that great to be honest - and it nearly ended up languishing on a shelf. However as the plastic bobble bottle softens slightly with use and you master the technique then it becomes easy and instinctive. I am in danger here of making it sound difficult, and it isn't, its just drinking water after all lol; but don't rely on it for your gym visit until after you have mastered guzzling rather than sipping!

    I was given one of these as a present, today. Simple, well packaged with clear instructions on the pack warning about charcoal dust needing to be rinsed/squirted from the unit initially. As I have an under-the-sink unit with a carbon filter ( and a similar warning ), it was no surprise to have this warning.

    Clear water isn't usually a problem in this area but there have been odd occasions when the stench of TCP has been a problem for a short period. Will this solve such a problem ? Only time will tell. I guess.

    Having said that, the first bottle/bobble full, filled from the main pipe not the filter tap, has been impressive.

    Update : 24 hours and 3x fillings later - in a word 'stunning'. It's like drinking liquid silk. Sorry if that sounds corny but I'm very impressed.

    I bought these filter bottles for my family after reading the reviews which were quite mixed in that some people liked them others did not. I am disappointed with them really I bought four of them in different colours. The bobble has a filter which filters clean water i.e tap water to remove the chemical taste of the tap water. It does not remove the chemical taste of the water the water in fact taste exactly the same as the water coming directly out of the tap. There were also a couple of reviews regarding the structure of the bottle, the plastic of the bottle is reasonably sturdy, it does not crumple when squeezed, it may do when excessive (and unnecessary) pressure it being used to squeeze the water from the bottle. The protective cap is made from a different type of plastic which if dropped may crack quite readily and also it may be lost quite easily as it it not attached to the main portion of bottle.
    Other reviews that I read stated how difficult they found it to actually drink from the bottle I think that if you can coordinate squeezing the bottle aiming the water into your mouth and swallowing the water you will not have a problem with the bottle at all. I would not recommend these filtered bottles at all to anyone, the replacement filter costs more than the whole bottle itself and to me and my family they do not improve the taste of tap water either.

    Looks good - I'm always getting compliments on the bottle. Water tastes great and I'm saving money and all those plastic bottles I would normally buy.

    Dead cuffed with these bottles. My son loves his, and is now drinking much more water!
    Some reviewers said drinking from the bottles was noisy, can't say I've noticed that myself.

    The water really does taste lovely too. I was a tad skeptical; convert now tho. In the past I've used metal drinking bottles; but never really liked them for plain water, these are great. And so far no problems with leaking from the sports cap.

    The only reason I've taken a star off, is the price of replacement filters, which is a bit steep.

    I read all the review for this and other filtered water bottles (it was a slow day). The reviews were very mixed for all of them. I ultimately chose the bobble based on its funky design (fickle I know).

    The main gripes that most people seem to have regarding the bobble were;

    1. It leaks
    2. It's hard to drink from
    3. The plastic is thin
    4. The refills are expensive

    My views on this are as follows.

    1. It doesn't leak, certainly not for me anyhow. It might leak if you screw the top on wonky or too tight. It could also leak if you fill the bottle to the top and put the lid on. As the filter is attached to the lid, an amazing thing happens. The water is displaced and the only place it can go is up and out of the bottle. Simple solution - don't overfill it.

    2. I admit, at first it take a bit of effort to get water out. I was sure there was a knack to it, that I just needed to figure out, and there is. If you purse you lips (as if you are kissing the top of the bottle) suck and give the bottle a gentle squeeze the water flows freely.

    3. The plastic is not as thin as I thought. After reading the other reviews I was expecting it to literally crack and disintegrate in my hands. The bottle holds it shape very well. You need to give it a gentle squeeze but this doesn't mean you have to crush it between your fingers.

    4. I'm not sure what people are comparing the cost of the refills to. They only need changing after 2 months or approx 300 refills. How much do they think 300 bottles or Volvic or Evian would cost?

    Summary: If you are looking to cut down on the amount of tea/coffee you drink in a day, or you believe you should simply follow good advice and drink at least two litres of water a day then I fully recommend this product. I take mine to work with me everyday and it has definitely helped me in both these departments.
