    Those BPA-free bike bottles/bladders may still give you moobs/cancer/anal SARs. Many BPA-free products still have estrogen mimics like BPS.

    I have one of the cheaper 50/50 ones from Amazon in brushed SS. I'd prefer the cap on the drinktank one but its about three times what I paid ($23) for the 50/50 version.

    For me it's situational. Having a pregnant wife, I currently do.

    That's why all my water bottles are made from lead. No crazy plastic man boob chemicals. Plus, they keep out harmful radiation! Win-win

    Realistically reusable short-term use water bottles shouldn't be a big concern with cold beverages unless they are pretty acidic. The primary concern should be plastic and canned food and beverage that are heat sterilized right before packing and sit on the shelf for long periods (and/or exposed to high temps, direct sunlight, etc).

    Another sidenote - as a consultant for a small appliance OEM, I also can say that the newer Tritan parts are more brittle than the old polycarbonate ones.

    FWIW, as someone in the drinking water/waste water business, we generally view the presence of endocrine disruptors and other "contaminants of emerging concern" as an infinitely more critical issue for the waste water side of things given their potential impact on macro-invertebrate, fish, and amphibian populations. Ozonation usually does a respectable job breaking down many of these compounds in the water treatment process, and quite frankly, they're usually present at such unbelieveably small concentrations (parts per trillion), if at all, its not an issue in the first place.

    I think this will help win my battle against plastic in my house. I've made good headway to the BPA-free stuff, but this will help substantially more. Off to Klean Kanteen to spend money.

    That's my fear with bottled water, for example - we have no clue if that stuff has been sitting in the sun leaching chemicals, etc.
