The Olympian | Sports Water Filter Bottle
Swear product. Will purchase again!
the nomad looks great and it does a good job in filtering water....water tastes better
wouldn't be without one of the filter bottles, travel overseas so don't have to buy water, very convenient. Also use at home while out and about
Purchased several of these as gifts after using one myself a few weeks. Great for travel.
Let me just start by saying that I absolutely love Epic filters. I have their under the sink unit which provides with absolutely clean water coming from a very dirty well that is full of mud and iron deposits (our rented house only has a barrier filter). I got 2 of these bottles for my child to take to school, since school water cannot be trusted in this country. The idea is great and it works. I trust that this filters as well as the filter I have at home and that my child has safe water to drink. The bottle itself is sturdy and of great quality. The only issue, and this is why I took 3 stars off, is that the thread for the bottle cover is really not smooth. It takes a few trials every time to perfectly close this bottle as the thread is far from perfect and so the cover goes on crooked. There is also a lot of resistance or friction between the bottle and the cover threads. It is really a poor choice of materials or design, I can't tell. For opening the cover, the high friction also offers a hassle. For a child, especially, this is frustrating. My husband also took one with him to work once and didn't realize the cover was crooked when he closed the bottle, so water leaked into his bag and got into his Bose headset! What a bummer. The bottle ended up costing much more in the end, considering the high price tag of the Bose headset. For this price, and for the high standards Epic filters hold, this bottle does not offer the quality one should expect. I'd also say that the little flipping cover that comes on top is doomed to break at some point, for it is made of that kind of hard plastic that eventually cracks and renders the cover unusable. I wish I could give this a 5-star review because I know the filter is awesome, but I hope this review will inspire Epic to think of a better design.
