The Escape | Glass Water Bottle
I recently purchased The Escape water bottle from Epic. It's a great water bottle. The water tastes great. The glass is strong and has a molded outer layer to protect it from breaking. What I'm enjoying most is that I can fill up my water bottle from any tap anywhere I go, knowing I am drinking clean, filtered water. Not only tha the mouthpiece folds in and is covered by a lid which means that stays clean too. That means a lot to me. Thanks for such a great and affordable product.
Overall I'm really happy with this water bottle. Bought it after researching pesticide use for a project and freaking out about pesticide levels in drinking water. The bottle looks cool, was reasonably priced, and is really easy to use and well-designed. It doesn't leak, the cap that covers the straw part is convenient and the loop makes it easy to clip onto things.
The way the bottle is structured is that the water is forced through the filter to get into the straw, so you're pulling the water through the filter and up the straw. This is important because water does need to be forced through a filter rather than just flowing around a filter to actually get filtered, but makes it a little more effort to get water into your mouth. It's not too difficult, but is more work than a regular bottle. The biggest downside for me is the capacity - the filter displaces so much water that I'm refilling the bottle more often than I'd like. A higher-capacity option would be great, but the size the bottle is right now is very convenient.
Overall, really happy with it!
I use it daily and love it. I feel better knowing I'm drinking clean water and not buying/using store bought bottled water.
Winter in AZ and walk/hike lots with my dogs and carry water for both of us. Now I don't have to worry about filling our bottles from public doucrs when I run short!
I like drinking from a glass container and the water tastes so good!
I never drank tap water before and felt guilty to use so maniy plastic bottles. No more of that, as I also purchased the Epic Water pitcher, which I love as I cannot taste the chlorine any more, plus it also removes fluorine and so many other contaminants!
The only downside is the bottle is not too stable as the base is not flat, so I am worried it might tip over... this is why I removed one star.
