I have kids who drink water - and lots of it - and enjoy having it on the go (or sitting next to them while they watch tv). We had a few cheapy water bottles from Target but after a year they were chewed up and leaked horribly. I decided to spend a little more and get a better quality product this year, ending up at Scheels to make my purchase. I bought this - the CamelBak Better Bottle - and got it in 3 colors (each of our kids is assigned a color - avoids fights!). They have been great! The blue part of the straw is one you actually have to bite on to be able to suck water through. Thus, no backwash. For a family with kids known for a nasty backwash, this is a huge bonus! Now mom or dad can share water with a child and NOT say, "ewww, gross." I paid $12 a piece, but I see online they're cheaper. No leaks, BPA free, and the straw stays nice since it's meant to be bitten.
