So the Little Lady has fully tested her Bobble and is extremely happy with it. She can keep it in her purse without worrying about it leaking all over her stuff. It’s fairly sturdy and she can drink out of it easily. She uses it all the time. I have a feeling I’ll be buying a new filter for it in 2 months, give or take.
I enjoy mine, too. I like that I can set it on my bed and not worry about it spilling so that I don’t have to get up in the middle of the night for water. Especially now since I’m taking Mucinex for this damn head cold. It seriously does help, by the way. The only issue is that you have to drink enough water to kill a camel to keep hydrated. Well, my Bobble comes in handy for that. Except when I’m really seriously dried out and I can’t seem to get enough. Then I get up and get a glass of water to guzzle down. (This stuff seriously dehydrates you!)
They are easy to drink out of, but I feel it’s harder for me. I squeeze and suck (yeah I know, but what other word do you want me to use?) at the same time in order to feel like I am getting something out of it. For a drink here and there, no problem, but when you’re taking something that dehydrates you, it’s too slow. I’ll be taking it to work with me anyway. I do enjoy it.
They are a touch expensive if you ask me, 10 bucks for an 18.5 ounce bottle that comes with a filter. The replacement filters are around 7 bucks each. So basically you’re paying for a reusable bottle that filters tap water. If your work place doesn’t utilize a water cooler or other filtration system, this will help you increase your water intake big time. The Little Lady drinks two of these a day, plus she gets water from food and juice, so you can see how much it’s helped.
Our recommendation would be if you know you aren’t getting enough water and you don’t have access to filtered water at work or your faucet doesn’t take a Pur or Brita water system (or you don’t want to pay for them either) that the Bobble would be helpful to your plight of getting filtered water from almost any tap. Later.
