camelbakSince I’ve made the switch to a reusable sports bottle rather than using bottled, I have become obsessed with them. I am pretty happy with my ThinkSport, and the Sigg and Kleen Kanteen’s are old favorties of many readers. However I stumbed on the CamelBak website recently and was pleasantly surprised to see their “new” BPA Free sports bottle The CamelBak Better Bottle with Classic Cap which they say is made with Tritan™, a BPA Free material and is an alternative to traditional sports container plastic, polycarbonate. The cap is made with polypropylene. According to their website FAQ, they are transitioning their other CamelBak Better Bottles to BPA free materials (in May 2008) as well as eliminating phthalates from any of the other products by April of 2008.

These come with a classic sports cap with a handle. and are available in their .75 mL sizes in lime green, grey, blue, tangerine, and my personal favorite, pink. They are more affordable than the stainless bottles I’ve come across, retailing at about $8.00. ($6.95 on Amazon) Hooray for yet another alternative!
