I never used to carry a water bottle with me or even drink that much water. But when I saw this container I decided I could make a small change in my habits. This water bottle entices me to drink water and to keep it full just because it is so well constructed and beautiful at the same time. Unlike most water bottles, this one is made of glass and has a silicone cover so that the glass does not shatter. Everytime I carry it, its weight reassures me that it is of quality – or at least that’s what the bottle’s heft seems to indicate! The only drawback is that the water bottle uses such graceful contours and perfect lines that any deviations readily show. It does not wear gracefully. For instance, the white screw-on cap looks like it has been gnawed on the edges due to 5-10 drops on cement.
