Rated 5 out of 5 by YESUCAN I love this bottle!
I bought this bottle quite awhile ago and had it "engraved" with my phone number in case I lost it. I actually got it back once when I left it somewhere. I call it "my green bottle" and take it everywhere with me. I'm buying one for my husband and engraving it with his number.
I read all the reviews and decided to try it. WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT: the size fits my hand well as well as my daypack and cupholders, the lid has a fingerhold which makes it easy to carry and it's easy to drink out of the lid. What others say is partially true and partially false. TRUE: the cap, a crucial part of the bottle, does come loose fairly easily. I'm always looking for it but it's usually on my car floor. FALSE: It's NOT designed for hot beverages. It doesn't say "insulated" meaning it doesn't promise to keep cold beverages cold.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Patrick123M Not so good
Poor quality for an LL Bean product. I got this for a Christmas present. The lid was a poor design, and the mug itself had zero insulation such that if you put hot coffee in it, you could barely hold it. I've tossed it, not even worth keeping for a back up.

While this keeps drinks hot and cold for quite a few hours, it is not leak-proof. I suppose it's considered spill proof as you won't end up with a big puddle when it's tipped or dropped. Top leaks though (and, yes, I have resealed the top several times just to be sure). Too bad.
I'll use a regular thermos from now on.

One problem--the cover to spout is a poor design and immediately fell off and keeps falling off. I will have to buy new top separately. I preferred the sport cap and hope I can find one to fit.

The mug itself is very functional and I really like the slender design which makes it easy to carry and store. The lid design really needs improvement. The top closure popped out and I cannot find it anymore. Even when the closure was intact, it was not spill proof. I am returning this for the more expensive spill proof one.

The flip lid wouldn't stay closed. Glad LLBean has such great customer service.

I purchased this for my daughter. The snap on lid does not stay tight. It has leaked often. I will be returning it to LL Bean.

Poorly designed product. Doesn't keep liquids cold and sweats as soon as its filled. I will return this bottle shortly.
