Owned various water-bottles during my time - this one's the best

If you're reading this, chances are that you've moved on from plastic water bottles which are slowly killing the environment and releasing xenoestrogens with each sip.
With that in mind, your next step is in comparing stainless steel bottles on the market. You're looking for a high-quality water bottle that is durable, practical and generally aesthetically-pleasing. You also want one that features no plastic on the inside of the cap as this defeats the purpose of storing your H2O in a high-quality plastic-free container.
The Eco-Tanka 1200mL ticks all of the above boxes. Having owned other stainless-steel drink bottles in my time, I understand how quickly they can be dented from a accidental drop. This is not so with Eco-Tanka. Obviously made thicker steel, it's durability is above all competitors. I am yet to have a blemish or dent appear on mine.
Whilst the 1200mL version isn't going to sit in your standard bicycle compartment, I find it is the perfect size for all other needs, especially if you're not a cyclist anyway. It's circumference is not too large for a one-handed drink as I imagine the 2L one would be.
This is the best drink bottle I have bought and would give it my highest recommendation if you're looking for a new one.

Bought this for my brother in law at his request. He is very pleased with it - he works on building sites, and it keeps his water cool all day and uses it every day. Good one Professional Whey! :-)

Perfect size for work and looks great. The water was kept cooler for longer than the plastic bottles I used to use.
800ml bottle is great - still a water bottle, but great

I'm all for reviewing a product on its own merit. And whilst this water bottle gets the job done, it's not going to change your life. I got the 800mL bottle.
What I will say is that it's sturdy and can definitely take a few knocks - ideal if you are a frequent traveller or otherwise active. The 800mL size is also advantageous, where the bottle has the same circumference as any 600mL water bottle, and is slightly taller to accommodate the extra volume. It fits perfectly in to the steel holder on my road bike, and any other traditionally size cup holder.
When I first picked up the bottle, it suddenly struck me how solid the steel was - an obvious-seeming statement I know, but I've always used squishy water bottles, and ended up squeezing the bottle to increase the flow rate of water when drinking, after which the bottle would re-inflate. None of that here! So without my trusted squeezing method I wasn't sure how well I could drink out of the bottle. Luckily, their appears to be a very clever valve of some sort built in to the plasted screw-on lid/nozzle that allows the air intake to easily remain open even, when gulping down the water. Good stuff. As a side note, drinking hard out of this bottle does make a lot of noise - that intake valve gets busy.
Only other note, a stainless steel water bottle obviously reflects the temperature of the water inside when you drink out of it. I usually fill up my water bottles at night time and refrigerate them for my morning ride/exercise, so when I collect the bottle it's blisteringly cold. Again, obvious, but worth mentioning. It's not too bothersome however, if only because I'm not holding the (now freezing) bottle the entire time. It'd be in my bag or on my bike.
In summary - buy it! If you need to get a water bottle.
800ml Bottle is a Beauty.

I bough an 800ml bottle a while back and have been VERY happy with it.
The size fits in my cars cupholders and the top opening is the perfect size and avoids any spillage when drinking.
I have barely bought ANY water in plastic bottles since getting it and use it every day at work.
An awesome bottle.
Best Bottle Ever.

Adding supplements to your water (bcaa’s, creatine, taurine, beta-alanine, and L-Carnitine L-Tartrate, whatever) and filling it (1600 or 2lL) means you get a constant supply peri-workout, while being diluted enough that it’s not like drinking bitter, acidic tongue-murder. You won’t have to make trips back and forth to the tap during a workout. Hell, with the 2L you won’t have to refill it at all.
A strong, well-made bottle with a perfect & robust sports cap. Doesn’t come with a lifetime warranty, but could – it’s bulletproof!*
*not literal, so no claiming false advertising if you get shot at the gym
Great Water Bottle

I've really enjoyed the size and the fact that this bottle is healthy to drink out of since it is made of steel and it will last a long time.

A great bottle that fits nicely in my handbag. Finally a bottle that doesn't leak and is really sturdy.
