- Great water bottle!
This is a great water bottle. Some of the other reviewers did a great job, I will just add that the loose foil layer is inside between the two plastic layers. This further limits air movement inside the insulated area, which helps keep your drink cool. From some of the pictures, it almost looks like the outside of the bottle has some sort of loose, foil-plastic material on it, and it looks like maybe it wouldn't hold up, but, as I said, it isn't that way, and it seems as if the bottles should last us a long time. ...more info
- Good bottle!
Inexpensive, lightweight, insulated, and it doesn't leak. Just about everything you could ask for in a basic bicycle water bottle....more info
- Water bottle - Best Buy!
Great product, great features! The addition of the handle strap put this product over the top for me - Water is cold, tasteless, orderless, and now, even easier to use than ever. I carry 2 of these water bottles on my road bike and will not doubt purchase again in the future as gifts and extras to have when needed....more info
- I stay hydrated now
I started an XBiking Class and work out with a trainer now. She recommended more hydration than what I was doing, AND during workouts. Bottle size is good to fit in the bike's bottle holder and fits good in my car as well. Got a few of these bottles, pre-fill them and stick them in the 'fridge. Works out great. Also a convenient bottle that works well when I'm coaching little league soccer with the foil insert, it helps keep the bottle cooler when it's sitting in the hot sun during soccer or on a non-shady track when I'm running laps. Wide enough lip to get ice cubes in, so that helps keep water cooler for those long workouts.
Great product....more info
- Polar bike water bottle
Freezer and dishwasher safe - meets my requirements. I freeze one nearly full and top it off with more water just before heading out. The other bottle I fill halfway with ice cubes and cool water. It gets insanely hot and humid bicycling here in Florida; by the time I finish the ice cube one, the frozen one is beginning to thaw. I know most people don't drink cold water when they're hot, but I drink more and stay better hydrated with plenty of cool/cold water. Bottles are easy to wash either by hand or dishwasher. We even made a margarita in one and there was no retained taste or smell in the bottle after a quick rinse out. That the "Save the Planet" bottle looks great, too, is a bonus. It's easy to pick out of a sea of other Polar bottles at a rally....more info
- Stiff Sides Hard to Squeeze & Low Capacity--Better Alternative
My personal preference for a water bottle is that it should be fairly easy to squeeze to get the water out. I never knew about this preference until I got my Polar Insulated Water Bottle, which, by comparison with all my other bottles requires an inordinate squeeze effort. Now, I don't even bother to use the Polar bottle for most rides. Instead, I fill a large regular bottle 3/4 full of water, put it in the freezer on a tilt to freeze*, and before a hot-day ride I top off with water and take off with it and another water bottle to which I add a number of ice cubes consistent with my need for the first part of my ride.
Be sure to be aware that the capacity of the Polar bottle is much lower than that for similar external-sized bottles, because of the internal bag, a price one has to pay for the insulating ability.
*Water expands when it freezes, causing the bottom of the bottle to bulge unless there is a large surface area for ice to expand into, which is provided by tilting the bottle. ...more info
- Great product....would use no other
This water bottle is great! I own four of these and it is the only water bottle I will use. I use them on my bikes, in the car and around the house and office. For hot day rides I freeze one 3/4 full and top off with cold water....will still have cool to cold water three hours later....more info
- so glad I found these!!!!
Perfect solution to lukewarm drinks. I carry water bottles with me everywhere I go and I love these bottles. I freeze it half full at night and fill it the rest of the way up before I leave the house in the am. The water is ice cold 4-5 hours this way. Another great thing is that there is very little sweating. Don't freeze the bottle full or you won't have any thawed water to drink for a long time.
I wish I had found these back when I packed school lunches. They would be perfect for keeping kids drinks cold all day....more info
- Makes the water taste like plastic...yuck!
My husband bought me this bottle last summer when he bought my bike too. I used it most of the summer, but recently got a Klean Kanteen stainless steel bottle. They are great! The best part is no plastic taste for stainless steel. For just a few dollars more, you can have colder, great tasting water that stays cold, and doesn't taste like chemicles in your drink. If that much plastic is leaching toxins into your water, can you imagine how much is getting into your body when you drink your daily water out of there!!! Yikes! No wonder why more and more people are coming down with cancer....more info
- Worth the money
I guess the first thing I liked about this bottle is that it is BPA free. Followed by the environmental message. I needed a water bottle for school and this one definitely does the job. As far as cleaning is concerned the removeable mouthpiece was almost a two-person job, but at least it comes out. It does seem to do well keeping my water cool too. I would buy another one!...more info
- Great bottle excellent customer service!
I love these Polar insulated bottles. I have 5 of them and they work really well. I have one of the older bottles from 2004 that doesn't have the black plastic carry strap and 4 newer bottles. The 24 oz. bottles fit bike cages well and fit on my 15" frame MTB down tube. I use the smaller 20 oz. on my upright tube and it fits decently there. My husband's 19" frame MTB fits 24 oz. bottle on both down and upright tubes just fine.
BPA free bottles and they can take a beating. Freezing is fine and dropping them doesn't dent or shatter them. There a few scratches, but nothing bad after 4 years, almost like new. The bottles don't sweat much if at all either, except from the tops since they're not double insulated. Water stays cool after 2-3 hours of biking in the sun. It works better than the 20 oz. CamelBak insulated Podium bottle (keeps water cooler). I like the convenience of using my teeth to open the bottle instead of the locking top of the Camelbak. Water does come out faster from the Camelbak Podium bottle, but it's not that big a deal for me. I like the wide mouth tops that make adding ice or cleaning with a brush easy.
Polar customer service is beyond excellent. My old Polar bottle began to leak near the top valve and Polar is sending me a replacement top for free. They are also sending me 2 black plastic carry straps too since 2 of my newer bottles didn't come with them. That's really awesome of them. Also there's a real person answering the phones, no recordings for me. Wow!
Update: Can I rate higher than 5 stars? I got my replacement top and straps in 3 days (over the weekend!) with a cool bonus. Thanks Eric. I value customer service almost as much as the product, and with an excellent product and excellent service you have my business....more info
- It's OK but not great.
I bought this primarily because it is pbc-free. If you put this in the freezer for a little while it will quickly get the outside (liner) portion of the bottle very cold but it doesn't stay cold for very long nor does it keep the liquid inside cold for long. ...more info
- Love Em
Escellent product-love the fact that there's no bpa. Insulation does tend to keep things cold or hot. Only drawback is the I haven't been able to unscrew the mouthpiece, though haven't tried real hard yet.
- Yeah, it works!
Yes, this bottle actually keeps fluids colder than a regular bottle. Holds alot, and the top screws off for easy refill. Well built, and sturdy in its design. Easy to use. I will probably buy more. This is a great water bottle, and you cannot beat the price!...more info
- smooth transaction
water bottle was shipped fast and was exactly what i expected. happy with the purchase....more info
- Love this water bottle! Great for kids and adults!
I purchased these water bottles after extensive research trying to find the "perfect" BPA-free insulated water bottle. Great for kids and adults, we take them everywhere with us. They're perfect for kids in sports to use during practices and games, as well as for long bike rides and trips in the car. I'm ordering another one for my almost 2 y.o. son as he loves to drink out of everyone else's-lol. No plastic taste for us, just be sure to wash the out before your first use....more info
- Nice Jug
The Polar insulated water bottle works well. I've used in on rides 2+ hours in temps around 80. It's no thermos, but hey, it's not a brick either. Just fill with ice first, then top off with water and you're good to go....more info
- The best liquid container I've found so far
I read a review of portable liquid containers on Slate.com a couple of years ago when I decided to abandon my nalgene containers. Based on that review, and some other reading, I purchased 4 different bottles to do my own testing. I usually use two daily, bringing them to work, one for water and one for iced tea or another liquid. The Slate review did not go over how easily ice cubes would go into the containers. This one and my old nalgene containers were the only ones with a wide mouth opening that would allow any size ice cube and could be used at an ice dispenser (which I use at work) without scattering ice all over. It also "sweated" the least (almost never) of the four and less than the nalgene. I can put it inside a tote or my purse and it doesn't get everything wet. I've given them as small gifts to others. One friend is a triathelete and now uses this bottle exclusively.
I have only two minor complaints about the bottles, but not enough to rate it a four. You have to figure out how to adjust the stem to be able to drink without squeezing the bottle and the removable loop handle is a bit flimsy (although none of mine have ever broken) and is easy to loose in the dishwasher. I love these bottles and they are the only ones I use now....more info
- Keep beverages icy cold w/ a slight plastic taaste
I purchased the 20 oz and I'm glad I did. My bicycle is small and I think the larger one would be sticking into me when standing; this one just barely fits under the water spout in my refrigerator so I doubt the larger one would fit. Before using the water bottle I ran it through the dish washer a couple of times on the top rack and then filled it with filtered water and ice from my refrigerator. At first the water tasted great but when I got to the bottom there was a slight plastic taste, I refilled it several more times and the plastic taste seems to have gone away somewhat. What I like about this bottle is that there's no wet condensation buildup on the outside and it keeps beverages icy cold. I rode for 2 hours in 80 degrees and the ice cubes were still partially frozen. ...more info
- A bit stiff
Maybe it is the fact that it does not have BPA, the bottle is stiff, making it hard to squeeze it to get the water out. I am back to using my regular bottles....more info
- Great insulated bottle
I've been using the 24oz. bottle at the gym for the last six months. It is the perfect size for a 60 minute spin class or an hour on the eliptical. I usually load it with a scoop of Accelerade drink mix, ice cubes from my ice maker and then fill it up with water. The ice melts at a much slower rate because of the insulation and have a cold drink throughout class. I also like the fact the material is BPA free, so one less thing to worry about. The little carry ring that fits between the cap and the body is real handy if your hands are full with other gym stuff. I tried using this the 24oz on my Specialized Tarmac bike but it is slightly too big for my frame (52cm). The 20oz might work better, but I usually drink quite a bit while riding, so sticking to non-insulated bottles for biking....more info
- Polar Insulated Water Bottle
Received product fast, good price. Excellent product, keeps water cold. This was a replacement purchase for 10-yr old Polar bottles that were worn out from use on bicycles....more info
- Seriousy the best water bottle ever!
I bought one of these about 6 months ago and like it so much I have since bought 2 more for my kids. They keep the drink cold and don't sweat (unless you put ice in them, and then they just sweat a tiny bit). There is a hook on them so they are easy to carry around. Very easy to drink on the run as it is like a little sippy cup. The top screws off so you can easily pour water in there. You do need to wash them every now and then. They are plastic, so no worries about breaking them. My kids are very young and they have yet to destroy one - like they have with all the other water bottles I have gotten in the past. ...more info
- Keeps it cool, but leaks on my bike
I have 2 of these water bottles, and I love that it keeps my liquids cool. It's just that the lid somehow allows the liquids to leak out just a bit. So by the end of the ride, I have sticky gatorade residue along my downtube. I'd rather have warmer liquids than have to wipe off my bike after every ride. ...more info
- Great product
This bottle works well and keeps its contents cold much longer than standard bottle. The wide mouth allows the addition of ice to keep things colder longer still. It fits in standard waist carrier (for running) or a bike water bottle holder. It is not intended for hot liquids. The bottle is type 4 plastic which is BPA-free....more info
- Great Water Bottle
The Polar Insulated Water Bottle is by far the best water bottle I've used. On hot days, it keeps drinks cool throughout the ride. We don't even think about using other water bottles anymore....more info
- best bottle for your money
i love these bottles. i bought 2 about 4 years ago and i just replacing them now. great product. very durable. this time i ordered 3. try one! make sure to wash the bottle in the dishwasher when you receive it. they are dishwasher and freezer safe, as well as they do not containing any chemicals that will leach into your water. kudos to the polar water bottle people! keep making a great product....more info
- Nice cold bottle...
Love this polar insulated water bottle. Even though it is tough to squeeze at first, it gets easier w/ time. The carrying loop is a great touch as well. Really keeps things cool for a longer period of time than a standard plastic water bottle. I wanted to try this before I bought more... I definitely would recommend. ...more info
- Great Freeze
I really like this bottle. I freeze about half a bottle of water and then right before I leave i add water to it and I take it to work and it lasts halfway through the day. I just wish it held more... :-)...more info
- Nothing special
I must confess that I was excited about this bottle, but have been rather disappointed. They claim that it is insulated, but only by having a double walled construction; but the plastic is hardly insulating. A previous reviewer stated that there is gel filling within the bottle, but it's merely tin foil that allegedly helps insulate the bottle against sunlight. All in all, I'm not impressed, and would likely find another bottle if I hadn't already purchased this one....more info
- leaky, leaky
I ordered four of these to use at Disneyland in April and one of them leaks from the cover. They kept my water cold since I added a lot of ice, but my wife's bottle didn't stay that cold. My daughters leaked repeatedly. I guess 3.5 stars really....more info
- Keeps it cold!
While I have only used this bottle on a couple of rides it works really well. I fill it halfway with whatever liquid I am going to take and put it in the freezer till that is froze. then I fill it the rest of the way with the same liquid and it stays cold for a long time.
If you are in the market for a water bottle this is the one to buy....more info
