PATRICK F.wrote a review of Backcountry Chalice Stainless Steel Bottle on December 31, 2009
I bought 6 of these. The first time they arrived, they were in a big box, just thrown in. Needless to say, they were all banged up, dented, scratched, etc. I called backcountry and they sent a new order out to me with next day shipping. They even refunded me the 6 bucks I paid for 2 day shipping.
The bottles themselves work great. No problems with oblong screws or anything strange like that. There is a silicon gasket to keeps the bottle sealed pretty tight. My one complaint is that these get banged up pretty easily. The painted ones chip and look like they can get pretty ugly if not treated right. This isnt a problem for me, so i'm keeping it.
GOod size, easy to drink mouth too! But remember, no machine wash. It will probably melt the top and make it unusable.
Oh, and there are no funny tastes either.
