I bought two of these bottles, one for myself and one for a friend. We were using this bottle fine during our travel, it has a nice handle for tying to one's rucksack and even if not, that handle makes it easier to carry in hand too.
Everything was fine, until my friend gave it to the maid to wash. That's when the "TRANSPARENT RUBBER RIM" under the cap would've got lost. We went to the decathlon store in ansal plaza delhi to exchange it or get it fixed, but were disappointed to learn that none of that could be possible. So now my friend's bottle is a waste, because without that rim, the bottle leaks!!
And trust me,i wouldn't blame the maid for this. Knowing how fragile the rim is, i carefully washed my bottle, and to my horror, while rinsing, i realised i'd lost the rim of my bottle too.And since i was aware of what had happened with my friend's bottle, i asked my maid to look around in the sink and all over the kitchen to find it. A rim so fragile and transparent, i really didn't notice it coming off while washing.
I believe its a waste without that transparent rim, and one wouldn't know if they lost it while washing, possibility of which is extremely high!!
I think the company should make either extra rims available or exchange such bottles. My friend is planning to use it for plants in the garden, too expensive for a vase, isnt it?
A good bottle at an affordable price. Looks trendy
Great bottle also got the insulating cover last time we we in store.
