glass bottle 16oz - graphite loop top
many people prefer drinking from glass and Lifefactory has one of the best glass drinking bottles on the market.
perfect for water, juice etc. the silicone has holes so it’s easy to see exactly what you’re drinking and how much liquid is left. the wide mouth makes it easy to put ice or fruit in your water (and easy to clean). i like to put lemon, cucumber or mint leaves in the water, especially in the summer, it’s a refreshing change from plain water. i’ve also used mine for warm(not boiling) water and as long as i hold it carefully, i have used it for tea in the morning.
while glass allows you to see your drink and may be more pleasurable to drink from, most new buyers hesitate to buy because of the potential for breakage. the silicon sleeve would help to absorb any impact but there is always a possibility of damage. in practice we’ve been very happy with the durability of the bottle. we’ve dropped our bottles many, many times without a problem.
Lifefactory bottles come with one of three different tops – straw, flip and loop. if the color and size of your choice does not come with your preferred top, extra tops are sold separately. the same tops can be used on the 22oz, 16oz and 12oz bottles.
Straw Tops: the straw top flips up to allow for upright sipping so unlike the other tops you won’t need to tip your bottle in order to drink. when closed the straw top is leak-proof. the pivoting handle allows you to stow it out of the way when drinking.
Flip-Top: the flip top is an attached silicone piece that pops open and closed, seems to be the favorite of people who use the bottle at the gym, but it is definitely not water tight. take care that if you put this in a bag it says upright; no need to get your bag wet. the pivoting handle allows you to stow it out of the way when drinking.
Loop Top: unscrew top to drink directly from the glass. this top is leak proof.
the sleeve is made from medical grade silicon and is manufactured in the USA. the bottles are made from soda lime glass made in France. the lids of the straw, flip and loop tops are made out of bpa/bps free polypropylene #5 plastic with the straw and flip tops made in the USA and the loop top made in Poland. the straw and the lid of the flip top are made out of silicon made in the USA. Bpa/bps-free.
care: these bottles are dishwasher safe but place tops on the top rack. for straw tops please remove silicon straw for proper cleaning. the silicon sleeve does not need to be removed. extreme changes of temperature can break the glass. do not freeze or boil the bottles.
