Rated 5 out of 5 by CautiousCarrie Made in the USA
Due to health issues, it is very important for our family to use food utensils which are made in the USA. This product meets that requirement as well as being durable, easy to clean and lightweight. Thank you LLBean for clearly marking products made in USA! It certainly helps those of us who have a need to know.

I was looking for a water bottle that wouldn't leak while kicking around my son's hockey bag. This one leaked around the valve when laying on its side with no pressure. If I squeezed the sides it would leak more. If you are looking for a bottle for hiking or biking I think it would work very well. The key is not to have it laying on its side. It's a nice bottle but doesn't work for my application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tandemgram Great bicycle bottle
We will be purchasing more of these. It didn't leak, and was great to use.
Saw only one at the bike area of LL Bean in Freeport on our way to Acadia. Bought it. Didn't know that they sold them. Now that I see them online we'll have to get a couple more... nice to have on the tandem.

Simple basic water bottle that doesn't leak. The only bottle you need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Laurie0520 Great for kids
I bought two of these water bottles. My eight year old uses them at home and sometimes for school. Many times we will fill one of the bottles with chocolate milk. As long as we put it back in the fridge, if he is not finished, it keeps well and it is very easy to clean. We have had other more expensive bottles, but the mouthpiece is a nightmare to clean if you use anything other than water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KOJIMR2 AWESOME BOTTLE!
This bottle is made by Specialized, which is the best bottle I have used. There is absolutely no 'plastic-taste', even when left overnight with water inside. The sides are supple in the middle making it very easy to go from 'just a sip' to 'full on Niagara' with very little finger pressure. The ends are reinforced so the bottle stays well seated in a bottle cage. The cap and valve seals perfectly, passing the shake test with flying colors (no need to pretend it is just excess water from the tap...the thing does not leak!). The picture on the side of the bottle is hideous, but the LL Bean Logo ensures you have a product guaranteed for life. It's five dollars, where are you going?

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBgal Works fine
I bought this item not because I need yet another bike bottle, but because it was stated as BPA free (and who knows whether my other ones are). It's a typical water bottle for the bike, wide mouth (which is the best kind in case you want to add ice and its also easier to clean), and holds water fine. A previous reviewer commented that theirs leaked--obviously the water bottle is not supposed to do that, so I imagine theirs was faulty. I'm sure LLBean would replace anything faulty like that, because these shouldn't leak.

Unless it is kept totally upright it leaks everywhere!
