Rated 5 out of 5áby mamasha keeps drinks cold
I love this water bottle. Have bought 3 just to rotate. I do use ice in it so drinks stay really cold and it does NOT leak!
As always llbean delivers FAST.

Rated 5 out of 5áby plunkie Ice water on a hot hike
I have purchased a dozen of these and the smaller 20 oz version over the last few years. I use them for outdoor activities but also for around the house during the hot months.
If I add ice and pour in room temperature water, the ice melts and the water is not very cold. I add ice and cold water from the fridge then put the bottle in the refrigerator until I am ready to go. If I am driving a distance before a hike or paddle, I will put the chilled bottle in a cooler.
I have tried filling it with water and then sticking it in the freezer. Freezing it without leaving room at the top will distend the bottom. It does not seem to damage it but it would not sit upright until it melted. Freezing a full bottle solid kept it solid for most of the day in mid-70 degree weather. Unfortunately, that meant almost no water during the hike. Live and learn.
If I put a strongly-flavored drink like fruit punch into the bottle it seems to hold onto that flavor permanently. At least it holds it through multiple washings including inside the dish washer.
I do wash these in the dishwasher although that is probably not necessary since they only carry water these days.
The one tweak I would like is to have a more comfortable carry-handle. At least this one is removable.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LoveShoppingAtLLBean Great for biking, car trips
I bought these to replace 10-year old ones. In warm/hot weather we first fill them with ice, then cold water. Or in very hot weather we can fill the night before and toss in the freezer. They insulate well. Be careful when washing to rinse super well as they can easily retain a soapy odor.

Rated 5 out of 5áby pontouf Great Bottle!
Provided you get the top screwed on tight, this is my favorite water bottle of late. It actually does keep my water cool, and the American Flag print is great!

Rated 5 out of 5áby VAShopper24 Good bottle -- insulation not perfect
This is my second bottle of this type. I like the size and seal, plus is very pretty. The insulation does not keep beverages cold for very long (metal is much better), but I love that it does not have a straw that you have to bite to get water out.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Gramy1 Great water boy yes
I bought two of these a few years back for myself and my husband. We love them. Unfortunately he lost his so I bought 6 additional ones in case we have friends who are biking with us. I've seen similar bottles in bike shops and the price is higher. Note that they fit easily in your bottle holder on a bike or in a cup holder in the car.
We fill these up with ice and then add water up to the top. The water stays cold pretty much all day. I've left it in my hot car for hours to come back and find the water still cool or cold. The key is putting in a lot of ice (to the top).
Cleanup is easy. I use a baby bottle brush which works great.

Rated 5 out of 5áby rosiebtg Love it
I recently purchased an insulated Polar water bottle. I love this bottle and use it every day at work. I especially love the design I selected. The only thing I can't figure out is how to remove the mouth spout for cleaning. I did read how to do this in the Q&A section, but I can't do it. Otherwise, I am pleased with the purchase.
