I switch between my old Nalgene and my new steel one... the steel one is small... I'll probably switch out the Nalgene for a large steel one soon :)

I've got a Sigg, but when I replace it, I'm getting a Klean Kanteen. I like that ice fits in the top of those.

We have changed our bottles to metal/stainless steel. Even the little ones the kids take in their lunch are stainless steel. It's just easier than worrying about if they are safe/if they are not safe....and they have such cool ones out there!

I switched over all our Nalgene bottles to aluminum for Christmas last year. Some of them can be super expensive, but I found Subzero brand aluminum water bottles at Walgreens - 3 for $10! They're exactly the same as a lot of other brands that start at $10 each. Only thing I wish they had is a different kind of lid so it's easier to drink when you're riding or working out.

I have a Nalgene one right now, but I'm going to be buying a few more next week. I'll probably get the stainless/metal ones!

Since I'm not convinced that the plastic ones are safe, I've slowly converted to the metal ones, and I use the old plastic ones to store spices and such.

I have a few of them. Mostly plastic, but i am slowly replacing them by aluminum ones... as the bottles get old and need replacement...

At home we use glass water bottles I fill them up and always have a few bottles in the fridge.Sometimes I put lemon or lime in my water for flavor. Because glass bottles break, I decided to go out and buy couple of stainless water bottles. This is what I use to carry my water in when I go out.

I use a ceramic mug most of the time.

If I am at the gym, I use the water fountain!

I use alluminum water bottles and I have several #7 plastic bottles...but I hear they can still leach toxins so I don't use them anymore.

My favorite alluminum one says:

Although I do use a plastic water bottle at work and at home, I wash and reuse, wash and reuse.

I know I could use a glass or a canteen, but for some reason, this just works for me. I try to reuse the bottle as many times as possible though.

I love my Deuter water sack.

It holds 3 liters and it's easy to clean.

If you scroll through this board you may find some more details in threads from last summer or so.

I use Klean Kanteen from llbean.com (gotta love the pink bottle!) :-)

I have a Question

I would just like to inquire--what you drink water out of it? What type of bottle?

Especially since there was all the media attention about plastic bottles and the leeching of the plastic into your drinking water.
