So the water bottle in this picture has been mine since 2010. I’ve got another one too, but it’s in worse shape so I didn’t photography that one. What am I trying to say here? Well, Sigg bottles stand the test of time. I bought my first one in 2008 when we were travelling around Europe. It got filled up in Switzerland with Glacial water, in Evian les-bains with evian fresh from the source, and in various springs in Italy and France.
I’ve had two of them, hubby has a much larger one that he uses for work and now mine has become Miss 5’s for occasions when we can’t risk a drink bottle tsunami around us. She loves it and the pattern I chose for myself is apparently her favourite. There are over 100 different Sigg styles available at any point in time, so you can always find one that will match your style.
What I love about it: you can switch the drinking spout, it can be open or it can have a sports top, they also come in wide mouths too now, which is awesome for people who like to pop ice blocks in their drinks as well. The bottles seal really well- think bottom of backpack on its side, not leaking. They are virtually unbreakable. They dent, the paint chips on the outside, but they don’t break.
What I don’t like: It’s not insulated, so it doesn’t keep liquids cold. You can buy separate insulation for the bottles along with straps and other bots and bobs. The lid detaches completely from the bottle when using a standard lid on it, meaning it can easily be lost. Sigg have developed a lid keeper that looks after the lid for you and stays attached to your bottle.
