Really excellent ESPECIALLY at this price,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sistema 800 ml Gripper Bottle, Black (Kitchen & Home)
So I bought this as a replacement for my Lucozade water bottle (http://www.amazon.co.uk/PRECISION-TRAINING-Lucozade-Litre-Bottle/dp/B003YLM1BS/ref=cm_cr-mr-title) which was horribly leaky and unpleasant to drink from
And I have to say that for maybe £2 extra it was well worth the upgrade, if nothing else, because it doesn't leak
I also really like the valve in the lid, which makes drinking from the bottle really smooth - you can hear the air bubbling in (my SO jokes that it sounds a little bit like a bong), but because it's not doing it through the mouth piece it means you can draw the water into your mouth smoothly, without any unpleasant bubbling - the valve also means that the bottle doesn't collapse in on itself as you drink
The twist lid is really good - very secure, although I personally need both hands to open it, but when I'm at the gym I just leave it open when I'm on the cross trainer etc
My only complaint is that sometimes, the bottle will literally ejaculate water sometimes when I'm opening/closing it, this is probably just down to the way the valves work, and it only really happens when I open or close the bottle really quickly
I wanted to buy the purple one, as I just prefer the colour, but there was less of a wait for the black.
EDIT: Just a note for this - the actual cap on these bottles is somewhat brittle so you should be careful not to drop the bottle, especially while it's full, as if it hits hard ground lid first the lid can crack - obviously I can't imagine anyone dropping it on purpose, but it's something to keep in mind - the cap for my original black bottle cracked when I dropped it, which caused leaking, so now I have the purple bottle I wanted, and my black one serves as my bedside bottle!
