    Update I tried to boil water in this it did not end well ::)
    I didn't fill it up all the way and right at the top of the water one side started to melt inward.

    Why do I carry a 45? Because they don't make a .46

    Not trying to be a know it all but plastic leaches a poison called BPA when heated. That's why so much stuff says "BPA FREE" now. If it doesn't say that then I would avoid heating and especially boiling stuff in it. Kleenex Kanteen for me!!

    I use a clean canteen insulated. Holds water with ice or hot water for 24 hours. Great setup!

    @Rainy How long does the Camelbak keep water cold?

    Been using this TAD edition Klean Kanteen since the summertime. This is the first insulated bottle I've ever used -- it's really nice to be able to fill it up with ice water and not have it sweating all over the place.

    Been carrying this Stanley for bout 6 months and know what you mean about sweating. Thinking bout switching to an insulated bottle for that reason. Like this one because the top unscrews off the stainless bottom, makes it easy to fill with ice plus it has the small mouth for drinking.

    Thanks to AdmSlc, I've been carrying this bad boy for almost a year and a half now. Couldn't be happier. No leaks, no sweats, hots stay hot, colds stay cold for hours (if not days) used this when canyoneering Ordiville Canyon in Zion National Park. It was 112 degrees outside and we hiked for 13 hours . I filled it to the top with ice then topped it off with water. I was able to refill the flask multiple times throughout the day and still had plenty of ice at the end of the day

    40 oz Hydro Flask

    Sorry, didnt see your reply until now.

    It doesnt keep anything cool for long, as its not the insulated version. As long as the water isnt hot, im fine with it though :p

    I do carry two Hydroflasks in my Tom Bihn Synapse water bottle pocket every day. The purple one is for water and the blue one is for coffee.

    Here they are next to my Rey and BB-8 action figures:

    Hydroflask is just about as good as it gets if you ask me.

    I use this guy, it has a filter to remove fluoride and chlorine, and makes the water taste like actual water

    So brief initial impressions.
    Very well built,has some weight to it.
    Holds 32 ounces
    Coating feels great.
    Doesnt leak
    I put two bottles of water from the fridge this afternoon at noon its 2130 and its still as cold as it came out the fridge
    They are available on Amazon for a very reasonable price.
    Monday work testing will begin then i can comment on durabilty.Butvit has a lifetime warranty and from everything i read there customer service is great. 1454812022355.jpg

    I've got one of these in my office and one at home

    [​IMG]

    Glasstic, I really like it because it is a glass bottle in a plastic sleeve so no condensation. I can leave water in it over the weekend at work and come in Monday and it tastes fine, nothing like drinking from glass. Not super great at keeping water cold but it has a wide mouth so ice is not an issue and I drink often enough at home and work that it is not an issue. Flip lid is nice and I like the size of the opening for drinking. I do wish the capacity was larger than 16oz. though.

    When we are out for the day or in the summer I will grab one of our many Hydroflasks.
