Eric Etienne 5 I am from Canada! I heard that Zojirushi makes the best thermos, but over here there is a very limited selection and they are very expensive! So I bought one from Japan for much cheaper.I have been using this bottle for the past month and I am very impressed! My drinks stay cold forever in this thing! I can leave it out when I go to bed and when I wake up my drink will still be ice cold! I wouldn't recommend this for hot drinks as the sheer size of the bottle makes taking small sips very difficult and it's easy to burn yourself.The case it comes with is great too! The bottom is very stiff to protect it from scuffs, and I can wrap my hand under the flexible handle and drink from the bottle like a mug! The shoulder strap it comes with is also removable. The lid is also easy to use and clean, I love how it can come apart and be put back together easily.This is my new favorite bottle. A simple, yet effective design. Forget Thermos, forget Hydroflask. Zojirushi is the way to go!
