Here's a discount code I arrange for a local group for reuseablebags.com:
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.

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

Sorry for my utter failure at multi-quoting.

i am thinking about getting some of these, anyone use them?
|05-06-2008 06:51 PM|
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.

Anyone have a new coupon code for reusablebags.com ?
I think the other one is expired

because when you fill it with ice and water it sweats so much and is very cold on your hands (like holding an ice cube).
My DH doesn't like his SIGG because you can't squeeze it. He rides his bike to work everyday (16 miles each way) and he doesn' suck the water out of the bottle but rather he squeezes the water into his mouth. You can't do that with a SIGG unfortunately.
I made some insulated water bottle holders from pre-quilted cotton fabric:
I don't like the sport's cap my bottle came with so I bought a childs cap. I wear lip gloss and I don't like getting it on the cap so I usually remove the cap to drink my water.
I worry about the plastic the caps are made from.

|nicolelynn||Thanks for the link for the Enviro ones, Dogmom! I had Kleen Kanteens in my shopping cart on amazon for the past 2 weeks, but just couldn't bring myself to spend $50 (w/shipping) on them. Enviros were half that.|

I haven't tried cleaning them without the bottle brush though.
|05-04-2008 08:39 PM|
Great thread. A question I haven't seen anyone address is this: How hard is it to keep the SIGGs and similar bottles clean? The mouth looks so small.

|mumm||FREEACME will also get you a reusable shopping bag if you spend more than $50.|

|2mama||I just got a sigg for dh for his b-day and we love it. The taste of the water its very refreshing. We tend to be rough on things and this is standing up great.|

I have a 32 oz SS bottle from Guyot Designs and I would say even in hot weather, it keeps the water much cooler than a plastic bottle would. If you left it in a hot car for a very extended period of time, it might get warm, but unless it's on a direct heat source, or in full sun, it would not get any warmer than a bottle made of any other substance.
We've had our bottles for a year now and I love mine--I'm tough on it, and even though it's a bit dented and has bowed out on the bottom from being dropped, it still works great for me and looks good. My DH keeps his at work and isn't as tough on his, so his is like new. For us, it was worth the money.

|jeca||My 27 ounce KK arrived last week. I have no complaints so far but a question. It's still kinda chilly here now so it's not an issue but once it warms up considering it's stainless steel won't the water inside get really hot? So do you have to buy the insulated sleeve to keep in cold or is there a comparable one as I found them kinda high IMO.|

|swimswamswum||Our 1L Sigg fits in our car cup holder. We have an Accord, fwiw.|
|05-03-2008 11:34 PM|
|artgoddess||Silly question, but do the 1 liter bottles fit in a cup holder? Or should I stick with the .6 liter?|

|Rebecca||Although I have 2 siggs for my kid's water for their lunchboxes (I fill it halfway, freeze it, add water in the morning for a drinkable coldpack which they almost never drink anyway), I'm really not sold on drinking out of stainless steel every day. For my own water when I carry it (which isn't very often) I fill a wide-mouthed mason jar with ice cubes and water, with a plastic screw-on top. I'd rather drink out of glass than metal (or especially plastic) any day.|

So far I'm loving my KK. It just arrived last weekend. I got the carry strap for it, since i know we'll be going to Vegas this summer. I put it on right away and it works pretty well to keep my hand from freezing when I'm holding it. I was using Rubbermaid bottles before and I wound up having to dump my water at least twice a day if I'd left it sitting because it would start tasting off. I'm not having that issue with the KK, and it's considerably bigger than my RM, so the water sits longer.
I am fairly careful with it though, and have yet to drop it. I carry it in my purse with my tiffin... my boss has asked me several times if my stainless eat-ware is camping equipment.

I like the idea of a stainless steel water bottle, but I just haven't found one I'm happy with, durability-wise.

|mountainsun||Ohhh, off to shop I told dh yesterday that I wanted to take some of our tax $$ and FINALLY invest in ss bottles for the whole family. Yay!|
|05-01-2008 03:11 PM|
If they are the same ones that Walmart had, it's because they aren't as durable. I got one for DF while I waited to be able to afford a KK, (looks like it'll be a Father's day gift) and in three weeks it's gotten visibly beat up and tilts to the side now.

|MeghansDad||just used the code myself. They finally had the KK sippys back in stock. would have purchased more more they dont have much to purchase.|
|05-01-2008 12:53 PM|
|kyndmamaof4||the coupon code is still working for reusablebags.com but they are seriously out of stock on LOTS of things. I ended up ordering for the kids from there, and I got one from amazon.com for myself.|

|aolinsmama||i know the aluminum is coated, on the inside, (sigg) and sigg says if it is dinged the inner coating isn't affected. i got my sigg for a whole 'nother reason though...it is pretty and helps me drink more water when i am not at home! before that we used the old white nalgenes we got back in 1992, reusable bags.com sells them still, supposedly they are safe plastic (?) personally i feel there are many reasons, some undiscovered still, for alzheimer's. my great grandmother was a vegetarian (seventh day adventist) used cast iron almost exclusively (she had some steel pots), had a huge garden and yard in which every day but sabbath she would work in, never smoked, drank, etc. was incredibly healthy (and we always said she would outlive us all) until she was diagnosed with alzheimers. if aluminum was the (or a) reason a lot more people would have alzheimers i think. whenever i get too crazy about things my dh (toxics specialist) gets me even crazier, with all the things we are exposed to everyday, that we can't control...lol|
