I was recently fortunate enough to be chosen to review Sigg drinks bottles as sold by Purekit. I confess until the bottle arrived I didn’t quite know what all the fuss about Sigg was for – surely a drinks bottle is just a drinks bottle?
Just how wrong can you be? I like to avoid creating extra rubbish by using re-usables in all areas of life – so we’ve got our drinks bottles, the baby is in cloth nappies, we use cloth shopping bags and so on. I’ve had a metal drinks bottle for a while, and it’s nothing to get excited about, just a plain metal bottle.
The Sigg bottle is in a different league. I was sent the 1L, in blue, and the first impression is that it is really quite gorgeous to look at. From the purekit site:
Extremely lightweight, hygienically coated inside with a taste neutral and fruit acid resistant covering, this bottle is a great addition to any camping expedition.
I’d have to agree with the lightweight aspect. Obviously in just a week I haven’t hugely tested the fruit acid resistant bit, but then again, I tend to use this type of container just for water. I certainly couldn’t taste any contamination in that, it just tastes like water. It also seems pretty rugged, though again, only time will really tell on that one.
I have to say, though, that I’m rather sold on the brand. And I’ll be keeping an eye out for more in this line as I come to replace the cheapies that the kids currently have. All in all, this is a great product.
Disclosure – I was sent this item free of charge to review.
