Designed with the same double-wall, reflective insulation technology as the original Polar Bottle Sport water bottles, the Ergo Hot/Cold Insulated Water Bottle keeps your drink fresh more than twice as long as single wall bottles. Use as a sports water bottle, bike water bottle, travel bottle or even for coffee during your morning commute. Polar Bottle water bottles are and always have been 100% BPA-free and phthalate-free. Constructed of durable, lightweight and FDA food grade approved polyethylene that’s dishwasher and freezer safe. The Ergo features our Half Twist cap, which makes drinking easy and spills a thing of the past. Just give the cap a Half Twist to start the flow of water, and another Half Twist in the other direction to completely seal it. Medical-grade silicone gasket prevents leaking. Functional and fun, this reusable water bottle lets you express your unique style with one of Ergo’s many colors or ombre patterns, from Kiwi to Magenta, Cyan to Tangerine. Makes a great kids water bottle too, with a removable carrying strap for easy grab-and-go hydration!

I wanted to share because I had trouble figuring out the lid and couldn't find a review or instructions online that explained how to use the half twist. I am usually good at figuring things out, but was perplexed by this lid. The only instructions provided by Polar is a sticker that says to line up the drop with the spout. Maybe it was because I ordered a busy pattern, but I didn't notice the drop printed on the paper liner which is between the insulated layers. You need to line up the drop printed on the spout with the drop printed on the side of the lid, below the spout. They call it half twist but it really is 3/4 twist to open. It takes two full twists to tighten the lid all the wsy when you put it on and then you just loosen the lid 3/4 turn to drink from it. The silicone gasket keeps the lid from leaking. I live this bottle, now that I finally figured it out. I thought the lid was two pieces and was trying with no luck to move the drop on the lid away from the spout. Polar's...
I read all the reviews before purchasing, so I knew a bit of what to expect. It does look NOTHING like the picture...at all. But I intentionally waited a week before reviewing as I wanted to drink out of it awhile as looks aren't everything, right? It's bumpy, its irregular, and I think that's just how most of them are made. If yours comes perfectly round, it's probably the exception. The outside is a matte opaque, the colorful lining is wrinkled and scrunched inside. That said, I love the lid (after reading other's instructions) and actually drink twice the liquid I do normally given the flow speed and spout shape. It doesn't leak, stays cold, and serves the intended purpose much better than many of my "cuter" bottles. I also like that its made from repurposed milk jugs. I rated it 4 of 5 stars as I'm quite surprised they leave such a misleading picture on there. There would be other ways to show the different lining options without displaying a completely different...
There are some issues with the way this bottle is described and displayed.
1) It's not a truly insulated bottle. I would call it either "double-layer" or "no-sweat".
Here was the experiment I did in a 72 degree kitchen. I put 7 crescent-shaped ice cubes into the bottle with about 8oz of water and closed the lid. I put the same number of ice cubes and same amount of water in a open, 18oz Tupperware cup next to it. I checked on both containers periodically. At 1.5 hrs, the cup still had a few small pieces of ice. At 1.75 hrs the ice in the cup had completely melted. After draining the water from the Polar bottle, there were only 4 ice cubes left and they were about 1/3 of the original size. It did slightly better than a cup, but I would definitely not call this insulated. The description says "more than twice as long as a regular bottle", but I think the answer is probably only 1 1/2 times longer than a completely uninsulated bottle.
