Rated 5 out of 5 by palumboy Finally, a water bottle that works
Purchased two bottles for my grandchildren.. Painless order process, delivered as promised. Girls are very pleased. The best part, the bottles don't leak if tipped. Good job LL Bean!

Rated 3 out of 5 by LEER I had high hopes for this, but not crazy about it
The bottle is easy to hold, but very hard to get the water out of the bottle! I have pretty strong hands and have to move to the bottom 1/3 of the bottle to squeeze it so I can drink. Cover closes easy, but it feels like it is still dripping when it isn't?! I wish I could see inside how much water is left, but I have to just wiggle it to guess? LOL
I doubt I would buy another one with this design, though I did like the graphics of the Polar Bear on it. :-) It keeps the water from getting hot, but hard to tell in the mid 90 F air temps with the sun beating down on me! I'm glad to have water so I make due.
Buyer beware - I used this only for my lunch time walks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ChrisAndMilena One out two . . .
We bought two Polar Water bottles, one for each of our kids. They really like the design and the colors. They do keep the kids water cold, fit well in their back pack pockets and bike water bottle holder.
One of the bottles within a few weeks broke. The piece of the spout that closes to hold the water in broke. We tried unsuccessfully to fit it, but could not. We where planning to reach out to LL Bean to return the one bottle, but before we got the chance our 5 year old lost it.
My experience as a child being the recipient, adult and parent the purchaser of LL Bean products: LL Bean products they get lost or out grown long before they wear out or break :-)
Other then the spout breaking it works well. Looks great and the kids really enjoy their bottles.
PS: I will buy another one with next LL Bean order because an LL Bean product breaking is just to rare for words.

Rated 3 out of 5 by OutdoorWomanCT Just ok
I was expecting great things from this water bottle. It really doesn't keep my water any colder than a normal water bottle which I fill completely with ice and water. It was fine when I was using it in the house where it wasn't exposed to the heat. Took it to a concert last night, filled it with ice and water and 3 hours later ice was gone and water was lukewarm. It wasn't even that hot out and it was in the evening! The design is pretty but I wouldn't buy another one, although the price was good for the one I purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bella18 Good water bottle for road biking
I bought 2 of these to use for road biking. I bought them because they hold 24 oz each, their slim shape works great with my 2 bottle cages, the price is relatively good, and I like the handy tab for grabbing the bottle. The insulation is what you would expect with these types of bottles; it will not keep water cold during the Southern summer months. Having enough water in a lightweight container is more important to me than having cold water when biking during the summer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by perrymd Poor construction
To begin with, I have been a LL Bean loyal costumer for many years because of the high quality of merchandise they carry. I was beyond shocked when I received this water bottle. It seriously looked like one of those cups/mugs your child makes while in preschool-colored insert sloppily placed in the "sleeve" area. I'm not sure what they were thinking but it looked so ridiculous that I immediately returned it. With this said, I'm sure it would hold your beverage just fine but the overall poor quality of its appearance is a distraction.

I bought this for my granddaughter for school, they don't have a water fountain near their classroom. She loves it, takes it everyday. The max time the ice lasts is about three hours but it works until she can refill it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PharmacyHermit This bottle is not the one for long day trips!
This particular water bottle was recommended in a Disney vacation guide so I ordered it. It kept our ice and water (that was already cold) preserved for maybe 3 hrs of our time at Disney with outside temps in the 80's. I'll use it at my inside job but definitely don't recommend this for outside hiking or day trips.
