Gear Review: Clear2Go Water Bottle With Filter

I've been carrying a reusable water bottle with me for years now, filling up on tap water as needed. Well, portable water just got a little cleaner with the Clear2Go water bottle ($16). It's your standard water bottle with a squeeze top made for cycling, but it comes with its very own water filter. The filter adds a little weight to the bottle, but it filters out 99.9 percent of microbial cysts (cryptosporidium and giardia), reduces the chlorine taste of water, and reduces lead and mercury. Using "trickle down technology" developed originally by NASA, one filter, which actually filters the water on the way out of the bottle, lasts for 100 gallons, or 533 refills — keeping an estimated 757 plastic bottles out of landfills. Replacement filters are available in two packs and cost $13.

Lance Armstrong is a fan of these eco and health friendly reusable bottles, and if you become of fan of Clear2Go on Facebook you can enter to win a bike ride with the seven-time winner of the Tour de France. You can purchase your mobile filtration system directly from Clear2Go. They make great holiday gifts and would definitely get you well on your way to filling a loved one's stocking.

I got a bottle for me and one for my mother - the concept is pretty cool, but unfortunately when you're trying to drink water you also "drink" a lot of bubbles while squeezing it through the filter, it also doesn't hold a lot of water b/c the filter takes up a big portion of the top. I don't recommend it.

That's kind of neat. I think it's more designed for people that are out hiking or camping and want to be sure their water is safe to drink. I'd be more concerned about the Giardia and Cryptosporidium in the water than the fact that the bottle might leach phlalates.

I have one of these water filter bottles. I tried squeezing about a gallon thru my filter, and kept getting carbon particles in my water. Never used the bottle - don't really want to drink carbon!

Im interested to know if these contain Phthalate? I have found one manufacturer who does not put Phthalate in their plastic bottles? Guess I will have to go to their site to find out! :)
