We have 4 Siggs

And I bought them all using coupon codes but STILL-.... I do not think they are worth the money I paid for them. I think that the Nalgalene ones you can get for a lot less money are probably just fine. i had to return one sigg becuase the paint chipped off it so bad and we have only had them for a few months... they do look cool but I think they are selling a trendy product. You are paying for trendy... Guess it is like a $30 diaper- sure it is
"good for the environement" but that is hard to justify.

I like the look of those! I wonder if their paint/outer coloring is more durable than Siggs? I prefer the Kleen Kanteen over the Siggs because the Siggs are just not that durable. The paint chips off and they get dings really easily, plus the narrow mouth makes it harder to clean. I think that water tastes much better out of a metal bottle, even if it rolls around my car all week. I had to refresh the water in my plastic bottle at least once a day. I won't go back to plastic, but I probably won't by another Sigg brand either.

That's dd's lunch too: canvas bag, tiffin, sigg. No plastic in sight. The kids at preschool are used to it by now, but we'll see how it goes in kindergarten.

Sorry for my utter failure at multi-quoting.

What is it coated with?!? I can only assume it's plastic... And if so, does that make a Sigg any safer than a plastic bottle?

Just curious about this. We are about to purchase some new bottles, and I was looking at the KK and Sigg.

WHat's a tiffin? I was at a function today and they were handing out those plastic water bottles. When I told them I didn't use plastic water bottles anymore they looked at me like I was nuts. Those ecobottles are a great price I think I will order some of those for the kids. Wonder if I can find a coup[on code.

Please be aware that the code is only good from 5-7-08 to 5-21-08 and is a one time per person code.
