I absolutely love my TAL water bottle! I have been using it every single day and keep it by my side whether I'm at home or at work. Not only is it really stylish, but it's 24oz capacity allows me to keep refills to a minimum. The color I chose was blue, and I would describe it as a deep ocean blue. The exterior of the bottle is textured so it's not slippery.
The bottle is light and has some great features that make it really useful. The cap is shaped like a loop so you can either slip two fingers inside to hold it, or hook on a D-ring or piece of strapping. It has a rubberized ring around the cap that gives you grip so you can open it even with wet or slippery fingers. The cap screws on securely and without leaking so you can toss the bottle in any position in a bag or purse without worrying it's going to leave a mess.
The interior of the bottle is made of a smooth stainless steel. It's just the right size to fit a bottle brush for cleaning. It doesn't have seams or anywhere that dirt or debris could hide. The stainless steel interior keeps your water or other drinks tasting exactly the way they should without transferring odors or tastes to them. All parts of this water bottle appear to be dishwasher safe and I have put mine through at least a few cycles without any visible change or damage.
The double-wall feature keeps water and drinks cooler for longer than a single-walled design. I find that if I fill it with cold water and keep it in the fridge until I leave for work, my water stays chilled for at least a couple of hours into my shift. I've also tried adding some ice cubes and found that the cubes stay intact until early afternoon.
I would highly recommend the TAL stainless water bottle as it's both stylish and useful. It's the perfect size for all-day hydration and very, very durable. Two thumbs up!
