Thermos Nissan Intak Hydration Bottle

In selecting a water bottle, people use different considerations but they typically revolve around weight and portability, ease of cleaning, and durability.  This is where the Thermos Nissan Intak bottle shines.

In our tests, it was free of condensation and stayed relatively dry on the outside, didn’t leak, and was easy to fill, even with ice cubes thanks to its wide mouth.  Additionally, it can be put into the dishwasher and is lightweight.  Its contoured design made it easy to hold, and its spout is designed for effortless drinking.

It’s the coolest looking water bottle yet and is available in a variety of colors.
