16 oz. Retap Water Bottle
So far, so good!
I like this glass water bottle - it fits well in the hand and is easy to drink from. A bit on the small size compared to many larger plastic water bottles, just something to be aware of.
I bought this for indoor use in my house. It's my drinking bottle and is easy for me to transport around. I now have a baby and 2 story house and 2 dog gates to pass through on the way upstairs to the master bedroom. This allows me to fill with water to take to bed each night. I put on the cap and it is sealed shut and I place in my basket with other items to take upstairs.
This allows me to carry all my stuff in the basket with one hand and the baby with the other hand. Prior to this I was having to make a separate trip upstairs to carry a water glass and being careful not to spill (or the baby grabbing).
I just hope it doesn't break soon. I have very hard stone coutner tops and my fear is it will break when I set it down too hard one day. I've only had a week or two now. For this reason, I wish it had a silicone sleeve for protection.

Great product, needs a few tweaks
I am proud to carry his around my workplace where hundreds of plastic bottles are used and thoughtlessly thrown away daily. People constantly inquire about them for their style and functionality...I give them as gifts and encourage others to think about it- which often seems to be something they've never considered. However, I think 2 improvements could really take this to the next level for busy professionals in this country; a) can the bottle be made of an insulated glass that shields the affect of immediate condensate that covers the entire bottle and makes it slippery until water has reached room temperature? Something like a Tervis style? I have seen such insulated glass mugs and things, but I'm not sure how resilient they are, etc. b) If the lovely 'swell' of the bottle design was a hair thinner, it would fit in my car cup holder, which is a constant annoyance to me. And of supreme import to all female customers.
I am passionate about sustainability and give this away as gifts. But until products like this that offer every day solutions completely fit into our lifestyles with no annoyances or inconveniences, I doubt they will catch on at the scale they should. Thank you for a great product.
I work in a fashion-oriented retail environment and an EVP walked by my desk the very first day I had brought this in and commented on how "stylish I was"

Love This Water Bottle!!!
I drink a LOT of water, and have had various water bottles over the years, and decided to ditch the plastic bpa free water bottles because they still leach chemicals from them over time. I've converted to glass water bottles figuring they would be the safest to drink from, There aren't that many that have impressed me, either they are big and bulky and heavy or odd to drink from, etc. Fortunately I found the Retap bottles at the Container Store.....l LOVE them, they are a beautiful and elegant bottle and well designed. The silicone caps have not leaked on me, which is very impressive. I'm excited that they will have sleeves to protect them, and will definitely purchase when they come out. I love to drink from these bottles, and I will definitely be purchasing more to add to my collection.
