2nds, barely perceptible blemishes. Liberty Bottle Works' water bottle is proudly made in the USA out of durable recycled aluminum with a food-grade coating. Simple to open, with a gradually tapered neck for easy drinking.

This bottle is great, the only problem is the bottom is not very flat and so it doesn't sit well on surfaces... it kind of wobbles around. Maybe I just got a defective one? If you just have it in a back-pack or Bike -- it's fine. I'll probably order two more

These water bottles are the best. They are strong, easy to carry, easy to open while driving, and dishwasher safe. I fill mine with water and put it in the cooler on long road trips. I own several and have put them through the dishwasher many times and they still look brand new.

I have several of these bottles now. Simply put...they work...again and again. These bottles are designed well. The opening is big enough to take ice cubes but not so large that you need an add-on to keep from spilling on your self while drinking on the move. They fit well in pack side pockets and brief cases. The bottle is strong enough to take some bangs without denting or cracking the lining. The lid locks down easily and quickly. The only draw back is that if you don't pay a little attention, it's possible to only partially lock down the lid allow for possible leaking.

Excellent pricing, made in USA!!! Very easy to clean and open/close, BUT! I believe that the seam where the interior joins the exterior retains aromas. One of my Liberty water bottles has a dishwater smell to it that I cannot get to go away. I think it's because I left it soaking in the dish water overnight. I've tried soaking it in white vinegar and cleaning it with clean, hot, soap-and-peppermint-oil water, but it still has the dishwater smell to it. Haven't tried soaking it in bleach yet. I'm also wondering how well the click-close top will wear. I would guess that eventually the plastic bump that clicks into place against the powder-coated metal will wear down, making it hard to keep the bottle closed. I'm only guessing, however.

I like this bottle. It looks nice and it doesn't leak and is made in the US. But you definitely need two hands to open it, and you have to pay attention when closing it to make sure it closes properly (it has a three-tab click-locking arrangement). They make a sport top for it that I want to try, as that would be more convenient to use.

Fill it with cold water and some crush ice on my way to the market. Hard to open with out a big spill, very difficult to close as well the bottle sweats a lot. The water inside doesn't stay cool at all. I won't use it as a water bottle.
