    They just have to be high-tech, environmentally friendly, non-smoking, masculine, gay water bottles tbh.

    I'm picturing a hybrid between something like this:

    I don't understand the water bottle craze.
    So far I've been able to make it from my home, to my destination, and back again, without dying from thirst.

    i'm no expert, but i think the consensus among environmentalists is stainless steel water bottles are environmentally and health-wise superior to plastic-based reusable bottles. and for god's sake, don't buy the disposable pack of water bottles from your neighborhood grocer. in some cases, it's just bottled tap water. in other cases, it's just filtered bottled water, which you can do yourself. in all cases, disposal of the water bottle just adds to the overwhelming amount of plastic waste that takes forever to decompose.

    I use an 8-cup large plastic bottle for my post workout shake, and regular 20oz water bottles for during my workout (plastic).

    If I for some reason needed a bottle for carrying around cold smoothies or cold drinks regularly, I'd use a metal container.

    Ones that have bulging veins on and around the fingerprint-ID grip.

    i love my glass waterbottles
    I think they taste so much better than the metal ones

    they're heavy, but I like good tasting water icon_redface.gif

    make sure to get a shatter-resistant one (has a plastic coating on the outside of the glass) if you buy one

    I have a small, black water bottle made from metal (steel? Who knows...), which I got as a present. I don't usually take it with me when running (too heavy) - but it's great for carrying around water when it is hot. And it looks suspiciously like there is something more potent inside icon_wink.gif

    I like stainless steel.

    1. No concern about toxins, like BPA's, leaching into your water. I especially don't trust that really soft plastic that is used for those disposable water bottles.
    2. easy to clean
    3. durable.
    4. will not shatter.
    5. well made
    6. it is lighter than glass
    7. can be used for cold and hot.
    8. maintains temperature longer.
    9. I can drop it without damaging it.
    10. stainless steel has no plastic taste and no metal taste.



    I have used the same one for many years and it still looks good and is easy to clean. I have literally used it thousands of times.

    If you get a plastic one be sure that it is BPA free.
    If you get a metal one be sure that the metal is a good quality. Poor quality one give drinks a metallic taste.

    I try to avoid tap water for a myriad of reasons. First of all, high levels of chlorine in tap water is something I try to avoid as much as possible. Although, living in Seattle the chlorine levels are much lower than what I used to experience when I lived in Chicago.

    Secondly, in my case I take creatine and I need to use it with hot water. So I tend to pour some hot water in a thermos with some creatine and it let it dissolve slowly and in about 10 minutes or so I'm able to drink it. I can't do this without some type of water bottle. Yes, I could do this at home but timing is everything when you are waiting for and aking the bus to the gym. If I drink the water too early then I am usually about to burst while on the bus halfway to the gym.

    And lastly, when I take my protein powder I need some type of container to mix it with so a water bottle comes in handy. You might say that I could possibly wait until I get home to have my post workout shake but I typically run errands after the gym so I have a water bottle for a protein drink and take it immediately after my gym workout.



    Curious.....never heard of using hot water with Creatine. I mix mine with cold grape juice. I'm sure it probably dissolves faster, but you don't think it destroys the Creatine at all?

    I think you miss a verb in your sentence. Anyway the syntax is somehow wrong.

    You wouldn't say that if you were living in my city. The best water you can get is the tap water. Not because the bottled water is shitty, but because the underground water here is so superior and fresh compared to the bottled one. It's on par with Evian or maybe even Vittel.

    Yes, mental coffee mugs are my favorite too. You can keep them hot by concentrating your mental energy so you don't need any additional heater only a tinfoil hat.
