I bought this water bottle to keep in my backpack for hiking and bike trips. The bottle is extremely sturdy. It's basically a stainless steel bottle covered with a rubberized plastic coating. It has a wide mouth, and the lid is very waterproof (hasn't leaked once, even on bumpy bike rides in my waterproof pack). The string attaches to a rotating ring that holds the lid on, so it doesn't get tangled when you rotate the top. It is fairly light for steel, not much heavier than a Nalgene. I read a few complaints that the bottle sweats when you store cold liquid in it. I have definitely found this to be true, but I use it to transport room temperature water anyway, so I don't mind it.
