Fill it up at the gym, airport, office or anywhere you have access to tap water and the built-in filter will reduce lead and chlorine plus 99% of bacteria and cysts.

Its ergonomic shape fits comfortably in your hand and is available in shatter-resistant borosilicate glass or BPA-Free Tritan™ plastic + a premium silicone sleeve to provide protection against breakage and nonslip grip.
