The integrated filter and bottle cap prevents dirty water from flowing around the filter cartridge if the cap is not tightly sealed. Replacement filter is available. Polyethylene bottle is 100-percent BPA free.
Opaque bottle makes it difficult to tell how much water is remaining. Lack of a drinking tube cover makes it easy to contaminate, so water must be squirted into mouth and not sucked from tube. Difficult to fully empty last few ounces of water by squeezing the bottle.
