Everyone in my house has one of these water bottles! We love that we can take this out and about and know that we can have access to "clean" water even if we have to get it from a questionable source :)
A year ago I moved to a new apartment that didn't have any filtered water readily available. Nothing on the 'fridge door or any of the sinks. Before getting anything more fancy, I just got one of these water bottles, and it worked wonderfully.
Filters are cheap and easy to replace, and make a very noticeable difference. The straw was definitely not something I was seeking out, but it's now one of my favorite aspects of this bottle. Because the lid opens using a spring-loaded button and the straw allows you to drink without tilting the bottle, it's easy to use one-handed.
It does exactly what I need it to and a little bit more!
