I’ve been on the hunt for a stainless steel bottle. I do like my Sigg, which seems to be controversial among the green community. Personally, it works for me, but it was lacking a few things. One of those things was insulation. I had a few criteria for a new bottle, and this one fit most of them. One was obviously insulation. It also had to be big enough that I wasn’t refilling it every six seconds, and it had to have a spout. I thought that the Thermos Intak fit the bill.
When it arrived, I was disappointed that it didn’t have a spout, which is something I like to have, as I take it with me in the car, and unscrewing the cap can be a pain, but overall, it’s not that big of a deal, because the cap is attached to the bottle, so I can leave it unscrewed and it won’t make a giant mess.
What I do love is that it keeps water cold for a long time (up to 12 hours), and with summer coming, this will be a big plus. I leave my bottle on my night stand at night, and my water is still cold in the morning. It doesn’t sweat and it’s very sturdy. I haven’t been throwing it around the way my toddler does to his Foogo (which by the way still looks pretty good after a year and a half of being tossed around), but I will tell you, that if a band of ninjas came to attack me, I might stand a chance.
The Intak holds 26 ounces of water, which means that I’m taking more trips to the bathroom, than I am to my fridge to refill, especially these days. I bought this specifically for my upcoming hospital stay when we welcome our second child. Aside of that first shower, having constant cold water handy, is right up there on my list of musts after giving birth.
Get it: You can order the Thermos Intak from our favorite site, The Soft Landing. The Intak retails for $22, but you can save 10% by using the code “SF-10” at checkout!
