Great filter discs but average bottle design
12 September 2018
This bottle is a good alternative to disposable plastic water bottles and as it is 600ml, it is slightly larger than most standard bottled water. I mostly use this with water collected from streams etc. and purified by boiling or water purification tablets when out and about. It does a great job of removing any particles remaining and although it doesn't completely remove any unpleasant taste, it is a noticeable improvement from using just a normal bottle. Therefore I think the filter discs are great, although they are expensive and so when just at home, I use the bottle without a filter disc at all and the bottle still functions properly. With all the screw compartments for the sports cap, filter disc compartment and the rubber loop, it is slightly annoying to clean but this is a minor niggle. However, bigger problems are that it needs to be ensured that the lids are screwed tight otherwise they are prone to leaking and if the plastic cup is replaced on the bottle after use and the bottle used for a few days without refilling, the sports cap and the cup start to smell quickly.
