Sigg Water Bottle Reviews

Positive Reviews

It works...

Posted
...Enough said. Water doesn't taste funny after drinking from it, it doesn't leak, the screw cap seems to work brilliantly after a month or so, it's stylish and promotes itself as eco-friendly (my bottle says "simply eco logical" right on it). Multiple reports on the product claim that the product exceeds FDA regulations for leaching and since I am not a scientist and can not do my own research, I'll believe them. It's certainly better ecologically and economically than buying 20 disposable water bottles every week--even with it's astounding sticker price--my old habit, pre-Sigg water bottle.

Sigg Water Bottle

Posted

Pros: light weight, comes in different sizes

Cons: has lining that can leach toxins into the water

So, I bought this to hold water for my little students in my Palo Alto Preschool when I thought the Siggs  were the most healthy bottle to keep water in. Turns out that I was wrong and the lining inside contains toxins that can leach into the water.  BE sure to stay away from those endocrin disruptors like BPA and parabens and phthalates, y'all.  I much prefer the Kleen Kanteen.

Aluminium

Pros: Funky cool, durable & lightweight

Cons: may leach BPA, cannot freeze & very pricey $$$

86% of commercial plastic water (one-use) bottles used in the United States end up in landfills, taking up to 1000 years to biodegrade. - Transporting bottled water consumes approximately 1.5 million barrels of fossil fuels per year. So it is definitely helpful to reduce this number by carrying a refillable bottle.Aluminum bottles are an option but not just any aluminum bottles. Aluminum although light weight has to be lined with something to make sure the contents are safe for drinking. Some aluminum bottles have an epoxy resin lining, which can also leach chemicals, including Bisphenol A (BPA). This epoxy resin is also found as a protective lining on the inside of metal-based food and...

Not a bad bottle, just maybe a little questionable

Posted

Pros: Reusable, recyclable

Cons: Gets dinged up kind of easily, made from aluminum, undisclosed materials in lining

I've had my Sigg bottle for a while now.  As a reusable water bottle goes, it's served me pretty well.  Design wise, they have a good number of options now (with different prints too) but I have the classic design.  It's fine for water and what not, but there's no way you could ever get ice in there (unless you froze some water inside of the bottle). In terms of the health safety of the bottle...well, first it's clear the bottle is made from aluminum.  There haven't been any 100% conclusions drawn between any relationship of Alzheimer's and aluminum...but I suppose if you're going to follow the precautionary principle, you might want to think twice about drinking from aluminum...although...

Perfect water bottle, perfect mother's day gift

Posted

Pros: convenient, easy to use, pretty, green, safe

Cons: too big for my purse or cup holder

I have been eyeing the Sigg bottles at Whole Foods but couldn't find a design I liked so I've held off.  I'm so glad I did because my kids got me a customized one with my name on it for mother's day.  They bought it from www.cafepress.com where you can design your own Sigg.  How cool is that?Other than the prettiness, what I like most about the Sigg is being able to easily take it with you wherever you go.  Although it's too big to fit in my purse, the top has a hole that makes it easy to carry it using my thumb.  The easy on-the-go nature of the Sigg bottle allows me to easily drink my daily 8 glass water - and that was hard for me to do before. The water tastes much better in the...

Water, water, everywhere I could use a drink.

Pros: Light, reusable

Cons: price

The price is up there and if I had seen some of the other options before I purchased my Sigg I might not have one but I bought it and I like it. It is nice I haven't had bottled water in my apartment for well over two years now and the Sigg helps me stay hydrated. I wont say it is the only answer and I won't claim it is the best but it works and I see no reason to waste it.

Pretty but not Practical

Pros: Great Designs, Reliable

Cons: Price, Rumours about their safety

Sigg bottles were the only option for a while and they were so hard to resist due to their beautiful and plentiful designs.  There have been rumours in the Green community as to their true safety, however I believe most of the actual scientific evidence proves they are still a safe choice for your cold beverages.  Recently in Canada more companies are coming out with stainless steel or aluminum bottles at a far less price which also have great designs and colors.  Although I own 2 Sigg bottles I have started purchasing other brands simply for their economical bonus!  Sigg is still a good bottle as far as I'm concerned if your willing to pay dearly for them.

Great Bottles

Pros: Fun designs, not plastic, good lid

Cons: Cleaning, price

 I love these bottles.  I wish my daughter hadn't lost hers.  They're a bit pricey to replace.  The colors and patterns are so fun, a nice change from silver.  I would really like to start seeing these in recycled material.

I love it but is it healthy?

Posted

Pros: lightweight, great design

Cons: is it healthy?

I absolutely love it in terms of how useful it is and how cool it looks. You see, I have a Poland Spring water cooler in my house so I always take my water with me when I leave the house. I used to reuse the plastic bottles till I heard how bad it can be to your health (espescially during summer when the water bottle sits in the sun for hours and gets reused the next day).So i bought this beautiful Sigg.And now what do I hear: thats not safe either???  Its terrible how they keep coming with more and more reports about how bad or good things are. Every day the opinions differ. For instance today:I've always heard that wine is good for you. Well ntoday I found an article that it's full of...
