The Perfect Reusable Water Bottle Challenge

In a recent post, we talked about our search for the perfect reusable water bottle and named our favorite glass and aluminum bottles for daily use. Shortly after, we were contacted by Glasstic, a manufacturer of shatterproof glass water bottles asking if we would test out their bottles and review them. Within a week, our new 16 ounce Glasstic bottle arrived and I began using it on a daily basis. Here is our review of the pros and cons of the Glasstic shatterproof glass water bottle, most notably, its durability when being dropped/knocked over.

Pros:

There was absolutely no contact with the glass when the bottle was dropped or banged. This is really important because as much as I love my other glass water bottles, any contact between the neck of the bottle and a hard surface usually results in a break.
Lightweight and easy to carry design, contours well with the palm of your hand
Locking feature on flip cap prevents spilling if knocked over
Wide mouth opening allows for great water flow.
Glass insert, flip top lid, plastic sleeve, and screw on bottom all are easily removable for cleaning or interchanging colors.
1 year no questions asked glass replacement. This is a significant PRO.

Cons:

Flip top “feels” a little flimsy and subject to snapping if bent at all. This is an assumption and I did not encounter any issues at all. Long term though I see this happening, but I am pretty tough on things. Replacement lids are available fpor $5.99 though so this is a non issue.
