I would purchase this again. I bought 4 of them for 15.50 each and the wife and I love them. I use one everyday and havent had a lick of trouble. I've been somewhat cautious with handling the kanteen by the top as someone noted previous, it may come off, as of yet all is well here. Ive also had numerous comments on them, "where did you get that? Backcountry, where else". Life is better with a klean kanteen!
