Are there any /fa/ water bottles?
Is glass the way to go?
I own some aluminum and plastic ones but no glass bottles.
What water bottles do you own /fa/?
It really depends. I didn't think a thread like this would pop up, but I personally use a limited edition dark grey stainless steel tumbler from Starbucks. Even the straw is metal too, I love it. I'd say glass or metal. Just don't be an idiot with the glass.
>dark grey stainless steel tumbler from Starbucks
I have a shit ton of water bottles but if anyone has a nice looking available online one I might cop.
I'm worried about this too. I have a side pocket on my backpack though and I assume thats a decent place for it.
This isn't bad. Comes in a bunch of sizes.
Not one to put fruit in my water though.
maybe a windex bottle.
wow this is really cool anon. The site allows for a lot of customization for the sleeve and can even have custom logos.

They are a bit expensive for our lige standard, but if you're careful with the bottle, it'll last you decades. And I think you can order the sleeves separately.
for cycling or going for a walk, they might be impractical, but for normal commute, using around the house and office, glass is the best. i hate the taste of the water in metal containers, no matter if they have coating against reacting. it just doen't feel right for me
No. This is the one I'm talking about. By far my favorite on the go cup ever.
This is mostly why I started the thread. Aluminum is most comfortable for me because the plastic bottles I own have mostly shit lids but the aluminum (maybe even tin?) ones I own make my water taste off. Even things like orange juice.
Next time I'm in a starbucks I'll see what they've got in stock. The design is great.
I suppose. $40 CAD for me but it comes with the sleeve and if it's going to last years that isn't so bad. Thanks for turning me onto it.
was about to buy one, then i read this
>and programmed using the TPS procedure. A bottle programmed this way changes the water’s vibrational structure.
then i read what they meant
>Glass programming using the TPS procedure:
>First, three symbols are engraved into the glass: the first one is the batch designation (e.g. ACK1), which allows for quality management and monitoring. The second one is a (circular) cosmogram or a mandala, which provides protection of the vibration programme in the glass. The third symbol, ORO, in a rectangular frame ensures a more efficient water structuring.
>The “old” vibrations are then removed from the glass in order to increase the efficiency of the programme written into the glass.
>In the third phase, the bottles are programmed with orgone cannons manufactured by the German manufacturer Bioaktiv. The vibration programme contains various information from nature that are in harmony with the water structure and thus influence it. This phase of the process is the longest and takes 90 minutes. The vibration programme is then stored into the silicon dioxide (SiO2) in the glass – the glass contains approximately 71% of SiO2.
jesus christ these people are far fucking gone
I really don't know about that, glass is terrible because it's fragile, but you don't want a shitty plastic one either.
Some plastics are actually toxic, or can cause hormonal disturbance (bisphenol A for instance). Sometimes it tastes shitty too.
There are some great filtering bottles out there (if you're considering one you had better read a shitton of reviews for each to make sure it doesn't leak etc), some of which can literally turn coke into clear water. I think the Seychelle bottles do that, the design isn't great though, but if you're concerned about what's in your water it seems reliable.
>buying a glass bottle that breaks when dropped
>buying a water bottle without a filter
>not looking on amazon for the bottle with the best reviews
>not drinking at least a gallon of purified water a day
My favorite water bottle ever is the Laken Hit .75l: great looks, good grip, perfect cap.
I left it one day on the subway, though, and didn't replace it. Health paranoia: aluminum (neurotoxic) kept away by a plastic liner that, while BPA free, might contain other endocrine disrupters.
Right now I just use a boring Klean Canteen with the sippy nozzle and a couple Osprey hydration packs, which are tested free of endocrine disrupters.
Dream bottle? A ripoff or upgrade to the Hit, the indentation a titanium ring, titanium at the base, and the rest made of something like Gorilla Glass but durable enough. Titanium outer cap, if possible, too.
These look cool.
Here's the cap. It's built so the plastic doesn't abrade into the water path, and it's locked down two ways, the flip cap then the twist you see.
The bottle mouth is a perfect width, wide enough to slip ice in, narrow enough it's not like a cup, and the sippy nozzle goes just the right speed.
Genuinely great design.
You need the ions, actually.
"Dehydration" is a bit of a misnomer. It sounds like it just refers to just not having enough water inside you, but much more commonly and seriously it refers to an imbalance of your electrolytes, usually too high a concentration of sodium in what water there is.
Anything closer to what you'd like that exists on the market already ?
Right now I'm just using a glass of water that I take with me around the house, but whenever I leave I don't actually have a good bottle.
I'd also like something that isn't toxic or disruptive hormonally in any way, just a good all around water bottle that's resistant enough for commute etc.
I use this, i like the design, not too minimalistc so it gets a nice tech wear touch. I also prefer the non plastic bottles
My brother has one of these. Unfortunately, sigg isn't the best in terms of quality.
I've seen a few that are mostly some kind of glass or plexiglass, but they all let down in some major way, otherwise I'd be using them. Don't remember what they were off the top of my head; sorry.
apparently Kateen makes some good stainless steel ones, and stainless steel appears to be one of the safest materials (although not the best all around as far as its properties go) to make bottles out of.
Now there's always the issue of the cap but I think they're mostly BPA free now.
>tfw carrying gallon jug that was 88 cents
I've got one of these. They're pretty cool and make your water cleaner as well.
They come in loads of colours etc.
This. Carries 1 L of water, mouth is wide enough to fit ice, and I don't have to worry about it getting dented like a metal bottle.
Got a silver 800 ml (27 oz.) Klean Kanteen, love it so far. Been drinking lots more water -> clearer skin.
>buy maple syrup
>use up maple syrup
>fill with water
I took one of these, removed the stickers and that gross plastic shit on the neck
dat green tinted glass looks sexy as hell
gonna sew a cover for it out of an old pair of black jeans
I have the grey one in OP with a flip cap. I also have their classic model in black and it lasted me three years.
Takeya's bottles are solid and a few people have asked me about them in my classes if you're going for that which I assume you are by making this thread.
thats nothing compared to my lunchware
also cleaned up one of these
really hate the screwcap though since it has the whiskey brand written all over it, gonna need to replace that with a solid color cap
I have mainly seen glass bottles in such uses with vintage "Henry W. Putnam Stopper Fastenings". At least that's the official name for the fastening.
Where I am from, those bottles are called (roughly translated) patent bottle caps. I don't suppose they are quite /fa/ anyway, as IKEA happens to sell them as KORKEN bottles.
literally the only effay water bottle. have a bunch of them cause they're $2.
also used a knife to scrape off all the shitty lettering, so now it just says 'water' in a tiny font in the center.
also they're durable as fuck, dropped them from 5ft height a few times, never cracked. but broke the plastic cap one time.
lol u guys are so fucking autistic, do u think ppl will care that u have a web 2.0 super sustainable kickstarter water bottle? lemme guess u sit alone at college ur hoping some girl will see u pull out ur AWESOME water bottle designed by some guy in boston that u bought off kickstarter and u think she'll come over and be like "nice water bottle haha :3 do u want to fuck me?" get real nerds just use a fucking plastic water bottle instead of trying to be a special snowflake
Laken looks ok. I have one similar to that in plastic.
I also have a few, what I assume, are Klean Kanteen ripoffs. These are the ones that develop a smell and cant be taken into the sun or they'll make anything in them really warm.
They look like the classic with the wide mouth cap.
I have this in an old style and one of the newer ones with the number 2 on it. My favourite if I'm jogging or doing something active. If >>8536980 is anything like the gatorade one its probaly really good.
Looks nice tho
>hating healthy lifestyles
>not putting in a few hours to find something you can be truly happy with
Wow Sigg has a huge selection. You picked the best design though imo. Red looks nice.
If I was 16 I would cop
v cool anon
I'm not expecting to get bitches wet with my brand new water bottle. I'm curious as to what people are using and their thoughts on the materials because my bottles are all cheap and starting to make my water taste off.
I'm leaning to glass for sure right now and Takeya is a strong runner. Looks great.
cold water is good
Which one do you have? I cant understand what the quick-cap is supposed be.
thats hip af
That whole brand is cool
What am I looking at
