I use a stainless steel canteen and it goes with me everywhere. I'm seriously never without it. I've been though a few of them over the years and I've liked some more than others.
The Kleen Kanteen that I had was my least favorite because I never liked the size of the mouth piece; it was too big to get my mouth around, and too small to sip from so I'd inevitably drip water all down my front every time I tried to drink.
The Sigg (not stainless, but coated aluminum) was just too questionable with it's secret recipe inner coating that erodes and probably poisons the water.
I liked my Earthlust, but the cap doesn't have enough threading and it pops off by itself all the time.
The one I use now is from Ice Age and it's almost perfect.
I have a 1 liter yellow "life is good" bpa-free nalgene bottle. I drink so much water that a running joke between some friends is "where's my water?" my water bottle is like my child. I'm surprised no one's stole it as a joke.
I used to use big Braggs ACV glass bottles at home. Now I use exclusively Camelback Podium bottles. No worry of breakage, no spills, no lid/top to fiddle with, easy to grab and go being that they fit in standard cup holders. They are the bomb :)
I have a little stainless Kleen Kanteen, a big Sigg, and a medium stainless with what might be called a nipple (?) - it's the pop-up sippy thing. I always keep a straw inside the first two, because I like using straws, and I also like not dumping water all over my facechinneckchest, which is what seems to always happen when I try to drink out of them with my mouth.... yes, I'm special. The small opening of the Sigg is pretty manageable even without a straw though, as compared to the wider ones of KK or god forbid, my old nalgene - what a mess.
What I'm trying to say is I like straws. No wait, what I'm trying to say is they all work, for different reasons. Except the ones that leach. Those are bad.
Im deployed so there's water everywhere! I cant ever stop drinking it! Ive only been up 4 hours and I had 6 cups of water already going on 8.
When I'm at home I use a Nalgene bottle. It's easier to keep track of my water intake like that :)
