We’ve gone through plenty of water bottles in the past that claim to be leak proof but often we find they have leaked all over a packed lunch and with the emphasis on using less single-use plastic we are keen to use reusable bottles. The first thing I noticed about the Ion8 bottle is the way it feels; it has a lovely soft touch coating which gives it grip and it has a chunky woven carry handle. The flip top lid is kept secure with a clip which can easily be unclipped with one hand and then a simple button flips the lid wide open so you can reach the vented fast flow lid for rapid hydration. To secure the top so it doesn’t leak you just need to close it back until it clicks back down and move the clip back up so it can’t come open. The bottle has a wide neck which makes it really easy to clean and the bottle is BPA free and Phthalate free and is suitable for both hot and cold drinks. We love the look of this bottle; it features the unisex ‘Cheeky Monkeys’ designs with a matching lid in different shades of green. The bottle holds 350ml of liquid which is a great way of keeping track of how much you have been drinking and after using it for a couple of weeks we are pleased to report that we have had no leaks at all thanks to the seal and lock lid. A really great bottle which is perfect for lunchboxes, school bags or trips out, buy here!
