Doesn't live up to it's promise
on 14 April 2013
Having purchased other colours in the range I decided to buy this for another member of the household. I had been impressed by the idea of being able to take a chilled drink to work with me (non-carbonated of course as this is not compatible with carbonated drinks). Imagine my disappointment when, following my own issues with my bottle the same thing happened to this one. The inner section that's designed to keep drinks chilled throughout the day broke around the top collar meaning this part of the product could no longer be used. Whilst the main part of the product was still useable the major attraction of the item was lost (i.e. chilled drinks throughout the day). It was not long until the second problem came along and the top of the bottle broke - the flip over seal for the drinking spout. This meant that the product was effectively no more use as it would not seal properly.
The problem with the product seems to be centred around the plastic used for the lid and freezer chamber as the main, see-through body is quite durable. If Thermos could solve the problem with the lid/freezer chamber plastic then this product would be fantastic and merit 5 stars. As it is, I am struggling to give it 3.
