Hard to cleanThe bottle is sturdy and looks great, but after a few months of use, I noticed that the bottom had mouldy spots. As a 24/7 water source, I usually rinse out the bottle and fill it with fresh water (sometimes green tea), which means it doesn’t get to dry out to air. It started to develop a smell after awhile and to my horror, when I peered in, there were light grey stains along the edge where the bottom and side walls meet. Tried cleaning it with the detergent tablet from Sigg, used warm water, even a bottle brush, but the stains stayed. When I used long chopsticks and a thin cloth to wipe out the dirt, the inner bottom surface felt bumpy (like rust).
Alas, I’ll have to look for another water container.

Unique bottleA very unique twist click lid and American made aluminum body make this bottle stand out in the realm of water bottles.
I would be interested to find out what the liner in this bottle is made of, it is supposed to be BPA free, flexible, and food grade. If you are looking for a bottle that avoids plastics touching your food or drink, it appears you would be better served by something made of stainless. Even with stainless, though, it seems impossible to find one without a plastic lid.

DurableI bought this can about a year ago. Maybe even longer. I have certainly put it through more than i should of. The can is dented and i ran over the cap with my truck, this thing has stayed in a pouch outside my ruck and lasted through mulitple jumps and air assualt missions. Still use it to this day. The bottle is made by liberty and i bought a kryptek highlander camo a few months back with the same results. Also used mio and other drink mixes inside of it and didmt wash it for an extended amount of time.(however long the field exercise lasted) ot never got moldy or smelled funny. Even used it for a low profile rum and coke can. Still works fine and doesnt taste or smell funky. Highly recommend this can from liberty.

Great looking bottle, very good usageProduct Reviews
I purchased this bottle a few months ago, intending to use it for water & also for my supplements (pre-workouts, protein powders, etc.), & it would do well for both purposes.
The build of the bottle is made of aluminum, which is sturdy enough. The outside has a grainy finish, not a sleek finish. The inside is white & sleek.
The cap is made of plastic, & on the inside has a removable rubber ring to ensure no leakage when it is sealed shut. I have never experienced any spillage at all, as long as it's been shut correctly.
When the bottle's lid is closed correctly, you can surely hold the bottle from it's cap without being afraid it would come off, even when it's full.
Since the body of the bottle is made from aluminum, it will become very cold if you fill it with a cold beverage, making it feel like you're holding a block of ice in your hand. It's no big issue, you can always hold the bottle from the cap in this case, but I just wanted to make a note of this for buyers. For the same reason, of course, it wouldn't be a good idea to fill the bottle with a hot beverage (coffee, tea, etc).
The bottle's packaging stated that it is best not to freeze the bottle nor use it for hot beverages (see picture #2). I would also not recommend it for hot beverages since the cap is made from plastic & a rubber ring; which may be damaged by hot liquids. Also, it would not be considered safe for the drinker for plastic or rubber to be in contact with his hot beverage.
When I first opened the bottle it had a note saying that it's not dishwasher safe (see picture #1). This may be something important for some people, but does not affect me.
Some things to note after my usage :
1. I would not recommend keeping beverages for longer than a few hours in this bottle. I have sometimes forgotten to empty the water in it before I go to bed, & upon opening it the next day, I find a stale smell & taste to the water the next day. I have since kept my usage of it limited to the time while I'm at the gym. If I use it as a daily bottle, I have no problem also, as long as I'm finishing the water in it & refilling it every 2-3 hours. Just make sure to empty it at night & hang it upside-down to dry out overnight.
2. I would not recommend using this bottle for protein shakes. Some protein powders smell awful & the smell lingers if the shaker used is not cleaned properly. Some shaker's mouths are so wide you could easily stick your hand in it with a sponge clean it out, they are made like this (like the Rogue Blender Bottle, Rogue Hydra Cup, Rogue Smart Shaker, for example), as for this bottle, the mouth is not wide enough for a thorough cleaning like the ones mentioned above. I don't see a big problem if someone used it for their protein shake, then cleaned it out soon after usage. But I wouldn't risk it by taking too long to clean it out. I have used the bottle for my pre-workout & BCAA powder before & during my workouts, & rinse the bottle out after I'm done with my workout, & the smell doesn't wear off that quickly, but at least my pre-workout/BCAA smells like berries, so it's no problem for me.
3. The packaging that came with the bottles states that you should turn the cap till you "feel a click" to know it has sealed correctly (see picture #2). My bottle has never "clicked" since the day I bought it. That being said, I have never experienced any spillage, as long as I make sure that I have screwed the lid on correctly.
4. I had once left my bottle in the car during the summer heat. I had parked in the sun, & left the bottle in the cup holder, & had the lid tightly shut. When I came back a few hours later, & found the bottle's lid on the back-row seat, & the rubber-ring somewhere else in the car. The lid blew off from pressure build up from the harsh heat LOL. I am not sure if the bottle was completely empty or if it had some water in it. This incident has not affected my bottle in any way. My bottle is still the same great quality.
I would give this bottle a strong 4 stars from 5, for the reason that it's marketed as a bottle not just for water, yet smells of supplements don't wash-out that quickly, & also because water kept in it smells if left in there too long (as stated above) which I have not encountered with other plastic bottles I have used.
Overall, I find that this bottle is a great product. I enjoy using it daily. It looks good, feels good to the touch, since it's made from quality materials, & has that rugged grainy finish. I can see myself using this bottle for a couple of years with no problems, as long as I handle it well. And if the bottle ever gets lost or smashed, I would see myself ordering it again, mainly for how great it looks.

It would be better if it stayed cool longerLove the look, the feel, and the weight. Put in ice cold water and an hour or so later its almost warm.

Very pleased!I bought this as a stocking stuffer for myself at Christmas. It keeps my drinks cold, the black finish is durable, it's the perfect size, and the cap makes it easy to carry around or attach to a carabiner. Best water bottle I've owned!
