hopefully an anomaly
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Let me start out by saying that I have had many of these over the years and have been almost entirely satisfied with their quality. However, my most recent experience was much less stellar. Halfway through a long trip one of my two water bottles started leaking. I noticed this when I woke up to the contents of said bottle all over the inside of my sleeping bag. For the rest of the trip I had to wrap duct tape around the threads at the top. Turns out, duct tape does not taste great. All this being said, I will admit that these water bottles are generally great. I do think that my experience with the one bottle was the exception that proves the rule.
