Ion8's new range of water bottles are perfect for those on the go. 100% leak proof, they have a vented, smooth liquid flow for rapid hydration. Concave sides and a soft band on this sports bottle provide a comfortable, slip free grip. These water bottles flip open with one hand, and lock closed for peace of mind when throwing into a bag. This drinking bottle is made from Tritan, it is odour resistant, BPA free, phthalate free, non-toxic, Dishwasher safe and suitable for hot and cold drinks from -10C to 96C...

In the past I've never understood the point of a specially designed water bottle, but then I'm not a huge keep fit fanatic. However, living on Dartmoor, I do like to go walking on the wilds of the Moor. In the past I'd simply throw my camera, sandwich and bottle of shop bought bottled water or flask of tea, into my rucksack and away we go.

I thought I'd put the Ion8 bottle through its paces... and I have to admit I was more impressed than I thought I would be. firstly it's of sturdy construction and the lock on the bottle helps ensure it doesn't accidentally open. Also, there's no faffing about unscrewing the bottle or taking off a plastic cap for "easy" slurping...

You can easily unlock and open the bottle with one hand. This will make it ideal for cyclists or joggers or those in the gym. But it helped me keep my chubby fingers wrapped around my sandwich whilst I drank. It was pretty easy to close it all up one-handed too. There's a rubber grip that goes the entire way round the middle of the bottle which helps to ensure it won't slip out of your hand. It holds 550ml of liquid and won't break the bank.

I've now bought another, so that my girlfriend can also experience hassle free drinking on the move. Overall, an essential purchase for anyone who want to keep hydrated on the move.
