I can't say enough good things about this water bottle. I've only been using my new bottle a week, and I've gotten several compliments on it and people asking me where I got it. I haven't tried it with hot drinks yet, but I put ice in it every morning at work and fill it with water. I continue to refill the water throughout the day but don't add any extra ice. The ice will still be in the bottle the next morning. I wasn't sure how I would like the lid with the built-in straw, but so far it's great. It's easy to clean, does not leak at all, and is easy to pull up with one hand because of the little handle that's built into it. Thanks for a great product!
