Sigg Water Bottles

Posted in Gear Reviews, Outdoor Gear by Claire - 02.23.2009

Normally, I can’t stand when people do things just because they are “trendy.” However, as of late, there is one trend people seem to be following that I am stoked about- being more environmentally friendly! Whether people are doing it because they care about the environment, or because it’s just the “cool” thing to do, I’m not sure- but who cares?! Either way, people are being more conscious about our world’s resources, and this can be seen with the rising popularity of Sigg Water Bottles. Why use a disposable bottle and fill landfills when you could rock out with a stylish Sigg Water Bottle.

It took me a while to hop on the “metal water bottle” train. I was hesitant due to the “tinny” taste and seemingly unportable designs when compared to other plastic bottles. However, with the recent BPA scare in certain plastics, my hypochondriac mother immediatly mailed me 3 metal water bottles, concerned about what chemicals I might be ingesting with my apple juice. I gave the particular brand she mailed me a shot, eventually bought myself a Sigg, and I’m sold!

Sigg Water Bottles

  • Smaller mouth opening than other metal bottles. Perfect size for swigging, and you won’t spill all over yourself if you attempt to take a drink while driving.
  • Sweet designs! I know, not really necessary for the functional success of a water bottle, but who doesn’t love to sport cool mountain sketches on their bottle?
  • No odor retention or tinny taste! Water tastes normal, and if you put another liquid in there, next wash there is no leftover smell or taste. I mean, I like my juice and all, but not 3 weeks later as an aftertaste to my regular agua!

    Cool design on the blue bottle at right, Claire! Here are my thoughts on Sigg, and a bunch of comments from people: http://www.gear.com/sigg-water-bottles-gear-review/

    We’ve asked Sigg to weigh in on gear.com about some of the comments on that review, but have yet to see a formal response.

    Cool looking, but still haven’t made the switch. I like the small mouth teeny nalgenes. Cancer or not I’m sticking with my old BPA friends. Sigg should do a 30 day challenge like Old Spice or something. Or maybe they could partner and have an Old Spice slot on the bottle.

    I dig Sigg bottles as well. The lid holds super tight with the rubber seal and the little dents you gather along the way just add character. I used Siggs for a good 2 years. I gradually faded them out when I found Klean Kanteen the steal brother of Sigg. I had a hard time cleaning my Siggs. The convenient drinking shape is not the convenient cleaning shape. Klean Kanteens are a little bit wider in the mouth, but not so wide as a Nalgene.

    My handful of Siggs became moldy all about the same time… unfortunately funky. I don’t have the heart to throw them out. If anyone has found a successful, aggressive cleaning method without taking off the coating inside, I am up for it.

    PS- DO NOT leave a Sigg (or any metal bottle) with fluid in your car overnight. Yes, the fluid will freeze and the bottle will shatter, leaving you with awesome aluminum shards in your car… I only made that mistake once.

    I have a 1L SIGG Classic bottle. The one with the red stamp in the center. I LOVE my SIGG! I have had it for a little less that 4 weeks not, it does have a few dents on it (from hiking trips). But these dents do not denote breaks, the bottle can be filled and thrown from a cliff and still be usable, while the so called ‘indestructible’ Nalgenes shatter.

    The only problem that I have has with my bottle it that the liner has peeled a little from the mouth piece. This is not normal, and SIGG will replace defected bottles, but I love mine too much to worry about any leeching from a small piece of aluminium that won’t even touch my water.

    The 114 designs and enough to make every neuron in your brain explode!

    They have a wide variety of caps for different situations, all in which are interchangeable.

    The water tastes fantastic, except for the first two uses.

    The logo and paint is also surprisingly durable. While hiking, I tripped and by bottles were squished between rocks and me. The Nalgene was scratched, as with the logo, while the SIGG had just two very small dents.

    It was dubbed as ‘The world’s toughest water bottle’

    The bottle does, however, dent easily.

    Now I just want a black one, and a red 600ml for my father!

    Happy SIGGing!
