A bot­tle to ac­tu­ally use

South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Travel - By Jeff Banowetz Tri­bune News Ser­vice

Some­how, we end up with a lot of wa­ter bot­tles. Whether you get them as trip sou­venirs or as pro­mo­tional items, the bot­tles prob­a­bly sit in a cup­board un­til you throw them out to make space for more wa­ter bot­tles.

So why spend your hard-earned money on a new one? In the case of Nathan’s Ham­merHead, it’s be­cause you’ll ac­tu­ally use it. Made with 18/8 dou­ble-walled stain­less steel, the 24-ounce model keeps bev­er­ages cold for up to 35 hours or hot for 15 hours. It fea­tures a wide-mouth open­ing for easy fill­ing and clean­ing, par for the course with most of its com­peti­tors.

But you’ll also find a nar­row, rub­ber mouth­piece (placed at an an­gle) pro­trud­ing from the top that’s con­ve­nient for sip­ping. It’s an ex­cel­lent bot­tle for cy­cling trips; it will fit into most wa­ter-bot­tle hold­ers on a bike frame. The cap, at­tached to the con­tainer so you can’t lose it, cov­ers up the spout to keep it clean from trail dust on the ride.

With ev­ery bot­tle pur­chased, Nathan makes a do­na­tion to the Ocean Con­ser­vancy’s Trash Free Seas Ini­tia­tive. It won’t take long be­fore you find your­self with some more space in the cup­board; $35, nathans­ports.com.
