Gear Review: Intak BPA Free Water Bottle

While I'm a fan of reusable bottles made by Sigg, Klean Kanteen, and Nalgene, they all requite two hands to open them, which can be annoying at times. If you can relate, then check out the Intak BPA Free Hydration Bottle with Meter ($11) made by Thermos.

To see how it works


Unlike other water bottles, this one has a pop top. You just lower the metal ring to unlock it, and press the gray triangular button. The clear top pops off but remains attached since it's on a hinge. You can't loosen it — yay! It reveals a small opening that makes it easy to sip out of without pouring water all over your face. Once the top is locked, it's leak proof. I love the slender body that's easy to grip, and it holds 24 ounces of water. There's even a little rotating meter so you can monitor how much water you've had. One of the best features is that the black top unscrews so it's easy to clean the inside of the bottle. It's also dishwasher safe. If you're interested, this Intak bottle comes in green, blue, red, and purple and you can buy one directly from Thermos.

yea its a very nice bottle, well designed. the top springs open with a silicon springy nub thing. and both the spout and the bottle rim get sealed with silicon seals. i hate it when bottles get complicated with sliding seals/openings or whatever that gets hard to clean, this is simple, and just works without trapping dirt in any way. also very easy to drink from. the lid has a flip up ring that lets you lock it down so you dont have to worry about it in your bag. bpa free, narrow enough for many cup holders, and lets you see how much water is in there at all times:) very well designed, and very cheap:) all around excellent product.

I really like the size of this bottle because it holds a lot of water and helps me get in my water intake for the day. The plastic hook on the outside makes it easy to carry when your hands are full. I bought mine at Target for $9.99.

these are fantastic... my law school has them customized. the only problem to watch out for is that the metal fastener can come off and then the bottle easily pops open. mine did this w/o my realizing it and drown the contents of my bag. otherwise great though :)!

This is creative. I like it, but I've already got a neat water bottle. Fit, check out CamelBak's Better Bottle! It's BPA free, *aaaand* it requires NO HANDS to use (well, you might want to use a finger, but I flip the top with just my mouth) and the bite valve is really amazing.

I have this bottle and love it! It fits in my car cup holder and also in my bottle holder in Spin Class perfectly. Plus I have saved a lot of $$ on plastic water bottles.
