Picked up this water bottle about a week ago in Nordstrom.
Did a test to see if it actually stays as hot as they claim.
The texture on this one is a rough sand paper kind of feeling that gives a fantastic grip. The only way this one is slipping out of your hands is if you purposely drop it.
The opening is more then wide enough for the large ice cubes that come from your freezers ice maker.
On to the test. Boiled some water in the microwave.
Took a temperature reading and sealed up the water bottle.
Let it sit over night in room temperature.
Ten hours later took another reading and
would say it does as advertised.
I can fill it up with ice to the top put some liquids in it and take it with me for the day. I usually refill it three times for a 10 hour work day and still have ice left over by the time I get home.
Great every day work bottle for sure.
