bkr Glass Water Bottle 16 oz.

Minimalism is based on a single guiding principle: That simplicity and beauty are often one and the same. These glass-made vessels embrace that notion on every level, offering a stylish, eco-friendly alternative to disposable bottles and BPA-heavy plastics. Made with simple glass and food-grade silicone, these bottles are a welcome departure from the excesses of a disposable world. A 1.25’’ inch opening enables spill-free sipping, while a range of brilliant colors lets you rep your personal style. Best of all, a portion of each sale goes to charities like the Obakki Foundation, which brings the gift of clean water wherever it’s needed most.

Great for the first 2 months

I loved my BKR using it daily at work for two months. Then I noticed mold growing in the cap under a rubberized part I am unable to disassemble. The cap looks gross now.

I reached out to BKR for help. Their only option was buying extra caps. Their response indicated that this is to be expected and that consumers should purchase multiple caps for that very reason.

It was cracked!
Purchased

Before my first use, I filled it with water and put it in the freezer, when I took it out a few hours later the glass had completely shattered underneath the silicone coating. I was so sad that I never even got a chance to use the sophisticated water bottle!

Cap issues
Purchased

I love this water bottle, but I dropped it the first day of having it and the cap split into two pieces. I'm hoping I can get a replacement cap because the water bottle is not usable without it.

Pretty, but not Super Useful

This bottle is pretty and the glass option is nice, BUT it would be helpful if the lid was able to screw off and had a clip to keep it attached to the bottle so that you don't have 2 separate pieces--where am I gonna put that lid while I'm drinking and riding a spin bike? Also, the silicon sleeve looks good, but doesn't really do much. My bottle broke the first time it was dropped, on a dirt trail from about waist height.

Dirt and pet hair magnet

I received this bottle in a limited edition box, and I was really excited when I opened the box and saw this. It's a really cute bottle and the minty green color is really pretty. But... I have a dog and a cat, and their hair sticks to the rubbery cover. If you try to brush off the hair with your hand, the hair doesn't budge. If your hand is dirty or you set it on a dirty surface or if the inside of your purse/gym bag has any kind of lint or dirt, this bottle works like a magnet and everything sticks to it. Try to clean it off with a tissue and the tissue rips and sticks to it. If you buy this bottle, don't be surprised if you feel the need to toss the sticky cover and just carry around a naked glass bottle--that's what I did. It's unfortunate because the green color was so lovely. But not so lovely when covered in hair and lint.

Sleeve picks up dirt, cap broke within weeks

Got this as part of a limited edition box. It was one of the selling points for me. The bottle has been a disappointment for the few short weeks I've had it. First day I brought it to work in a bag and it came out completely smudged up.

Yesterday, I pulled it out of my bag and the cap was broken. Lucky it was empty. It's never been dropped.

$6 for a replacement cap. What a racket.

Almost Perfect...

It's cute. The colors are adorable, but there's one thing. Even though it's made of glass... that doesn't mean it's durable. I accidentally dropped mine, and thank goodness it didn't shatter! It might be pretty, but this is one expensive bottle.

Cute, but not my favorite.
Purchased

I love how cute this bottle looks, however it is smaller than most bottles I carry. The opening is not very big so unless you have a funnel it's a bit messy filling it up. Also b/c the mouth opening is so small you need a bottle brush small enough to clean inside it.

Serves its purpose at the most.
Purchased

I prefer glass water bottles (easy to clean, no polymers leaching into your water, aesthetically pleasing, etc) but I'm clumsier than a toddler. I've had several different brands (I don't think I can list them here?), all of which have taken drops really well, some better than others. After about a month of use, the day finally came that I dropped this one. I dropped it from the height of my coffee table, precisely 36 inches, and it shattered. Such a short drop for this small of bottle to break!

But that's not what I didn't like about it. The lid made my clumsiness ever present with its stationary little loop. The angle at which it resides, for some reason, interfered with my opening finesse and I was always dropping it. I made quite a reputation for myself in the library with this bottle cap.

If you want to be well known for the dropsies, buy this little guy! If you like seeming in control of your motor skills, reconsider. I will say, the Mimosa color is a lovely peach that sent off the message I was girly and fun while also letting everyone know I've got butter fingers (and not the candy bar). Two stars for offering fun colors other than the standard blue, white, black, and puke green. Minus three stars for making everyone hate me.

great water bottle
Purchased

Way too expensive. Like ridiculously expensive. But it is easy to clean and it looks great. I'm not sure if I would buy this again, but if it goes on sale you should
