This bottle won't leak if it tips over, or if you throw it in your bag. If the cap is screwed on properly, it does not let any water through. The straw won't let water spill out of it even when not in an upright position. The integrated loop handle lets you carry it around comfortably in your hand, or you can attach it to your backpack with a carabiner. It also fits most cup holders. The bottle itself is sturdy, and it will survive most falls. See More

The lid on the Thermos Intak is easy to operate- it pops open at the push of a button. The mouthpiece has rounded edges and is just wide enough to make it easy to drink from it without huge gulps or suction sounds. The ergonomic shape of the bottle along with the grip makes it easy to lift up and carry. The simple construction of the lid means you would be able to drink other drinks as well, for example juice or ice coffee, without the risk of clogging up the inner mechanism. See More
