Rated 2 out of 5 by VTInnkeeper Handy, well made, but....
As always, LLBean has made a good product, but it needs some improvement. This bottle really keeps things cold, but the cap/fastener pops off very easily! I like to be able to put my drink in my backpack or briefcase, but I can't do it with this purchase. Perhaps a better design for the cap would bring the rating up to 5 stars.

I thought it was insulated to some degree, probably because it looks like an insulated travel mug, but it was not. It is a canteen. A container to carry cold drinks in, not hot. The drinks do not stay colder any longer than any other regular container. Next time I'll read the description more thoroughly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CaptainRob Great so far
It has held up well so far...getting use to the new top. Only concern I can see happening is the lid sliding up and water spilling in a lunch box or back pack...but has not happen yet. Like most LL Bean products, it is high quality and well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by diane58 Excellent!
Excellent bottle for every day use. I even use mine while in the house, so my water or whatever doesn't spill out. I had a cheaper one w/the same kind of top but it consistently leaked. I thought this would be the same but opted to purchase it and give it a shot knowing LL Bean has an Excellent return policy and their customer service is nothing but the best!
I do like the way it fits into the car bottle holders. It also keeps my water cold for a very long period of time unlike the cheaper one I had.
My only draw back w/this, as w/others w/the same type of cap is that it can be difficult to drink out of. If they had a pin hole for air to escape while drinking it would be a bit better. I do like the large top opening cap so one can use ice cubes in it.
The color is very bright, (I got purple) and I like it.
Yes! I would recommend this to a friend w/o a doubt. I believe it is made better than your "average dollar store" ones. Of course it comes w/the price too but I found it to be well worth it more so when I got it on sale!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by KimmyK Nice water bottle for everyone in the family.
Good water bottle for everyone in our family, kids and parents. We felt this was a better and healthier option than plastic. Kids loved them and have been using the every day. My husband and I noticed we are drinking more water by taking them to work every day. The only down side, the flip up top can pop off easily. Not a big deal for grown ups, as it clips right back on. Just concerned the kids will end of losing the top, but overall a great water bottle and would recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GolfWidow50 PERFECT!
The Canteen is wonderful. It was priced right, & has a great color!
Adding my husband's name was the perfect touch.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GrannySmithII Great size
We ordered two new canteens with the redesigned top. I have to say that we do not like the new style. The top has two pieces. One of ours has already gone down the garbage disposal --retrieved, fortunately. It also is not easy to drink from.
