Glasstic Water Bottle {Review} #ad

Monday, January 13, 2014 Posted by Dina N

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. 
As I've mentioned before, everyone in my house has a reusable water bottle. After much trial and error, we stick to stainless steel bottles. My preferred food storage containers are glass but until recently, I had no idea my water bottle could be made of glass, too. Glass is wonderful but breakable, right?

The Glasstic Water Bottle combines all the advantages of glass with a durable plastic cover that makes it shatterproof. So the outside is plastic but what's in contact with my drink is glass. Kudos for the streamlined cylindrical shape - looks elegant and it's easy to clean, no annoying nooks and cranies that cannot be reached with a bottle brush. The top and bottom are removable and the glass insert can be taken out for even better cleanup. These outside parts are plastic and come in several cute colors. My first choice was the green. When it arrived, the handle was cracked. I contacted the company and they promptly sent me a replacement - not just a new green cap but also an extra set of pink top and bottom. You can pick your favorite out of the six colors, or get several bottles and mix and match to your eye's content. Most days, I like mine with a green bottom and pink top. Girly and eco-friendly!

The Glasstic bottle holds 16 oz. I can easily fit three fingers in the plastic handle and carry it around. Personally, I prefer a cup holder or backpack for my liquids on the go. When I walk in the park, I'd rather leave my water bottle in the car and just get a drink when I need it. If you'd rather bring yours along, you can do that with the Glasstic. When the handle is not in use, it snaps down and stays out of the way. I love it that the glass bottle does not transfer any smell or metallic taste to my beverage. I use my Glasstic for water and iced green tea but since it is glass, it can work for just about any liquid. If you are an essential oil or alkaline water drinker, I am sure you will appreciate the versatility of the Glasstic bottles. The bottle does not leak, and while it is heavier than the plastic and stainless steel bottles I have around the house, it's worth carrying around a little extra weight for the benefits of the glass container.

Bottom line? I love my Glasstic bottle. While I would not send it with any of my kids to school - their stainless steel water bottles show the signs of way too many drops - right now, it is my favorite beverage container on the go. Apart from my travel coffee mug, that is.

The Glasstic bottles retail for $19.99 online. If the glass insert ever breaks, it's good to know that the company offers a lifetime replacement for a flat charge of $7.99 that covers the cost of shipping.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

    I've never heard of these but the colors are pretty. Very impressed with the lifetime warranty for replacement. It's not too pricy either.

    When I first read about a glass bottle, I was just like you and a little bit hesitant in thinking it'd be a good choice. Like you said, glass is easily breakable and the fact that I take water bottles everywhere and carry them around, I know that they need to be tough to endure all the wear and tear. But after reading about the Glasstic bottle, I'm pleasantly surprised that the bottles are shatter-proof because of the plastic on top. I also appreciate, like you mentioned, that the bottles are easy to clean because having soapy residue left inside the bottle is something I try to avoid!

    I have been trying to use less plastic and these bottles look great for taking water with me where I go.

    Nice. I have been using a particular bottle for years now from an old review. It is doing great! I think these are a great idea. Thanks.

    Wow, this is perfect for me, shatter proof. I fall a lot and this would fit me perfectly. But just as I thought to myself, does it smell like most others. Your answer made me so happy, hate drinking water out of a smelly water bottle. So thanks for sharing, it has really sold me.
