Pure Balance Water Bottle
I have the prior version of this bottle. The silicone only partially covers the glass bottle. It's really cute, but it leaks! At first, i thought the leak was me not closing the lid completely. then i noticed if i did not leave the bottle upright, the water would get trapped in the lid. Then, it leaks out when it's put back to upright position! how annoying! not sure if this version has the same problem, but based on prior reviews, looks like so.. :(

I cleaned the bottle and filled it with water then dropped the lid on the floor and it broke in half!! I'm ticked, I've had the bottle for two weeks and it already broke. I'd like to be able to get a new lid for the bottle.......

do not get this
I got this water bottle in green and the first time I used it I was super happy with it, but we took the green silicone off to wash it and could not get it back on. It took 20 minutes to get it back on.

bit expensive for the quality
This bottle leaks like crazy. It has ruined a lot of my books, notebooks and notes. The exterior also attracts everything such as hair, lint, etc.
On the bright side, the water tastes fresh in it.

Be Super Careful
I first bought this water bottle in green, and I absolutley loved it! After the second use, I was walking home and by accident I dropped the bottle on the ground (I didn't drop it from high, maybe 1 foot off the ground). And the lid broke. I went to replace it at a local Lululemon store, and the customer service was great! They appologized and gave me a new one in what ever colour I liked. I chose the blue one (the one on the website.) So far, Im loving it! Ive dropped it a couple times, and no breaking! Also it is abit difficult' to wash, but besides that, I love it!

I purchased this bottle to take to hot yoga. The bottle is aesthetically pleasing and the glass is great for fresh tasting water; however, when I wash it (by hand), water gets in between the silicon sleeve and the glass and is impossible to dry. I have tried to remove the sleeve in order to dry both pieces, but it is extremely difficult and I am afraid I will either break the glass or tear the silicon. Working in health care I am fully aware of what organisms can grow in stagnant water. Eeeuuuuwww! My daughter has a similar bottle, the silicon sleeve on hers has cut outs which is a much better design because it dries easily. Sadly, I don't feel comfortable using this bottle.

I LOVE IT! Bring it Back!
I purchased the white one with the flower design back in February and I couldn't be happier. The silicone makes for a great grip and helps protect it from breaking. I still have to be careful though and I also handwash it every day. I don't trust the dishwasher with it.
Glass makes the water taste so much better than plastic or metal and it also keeps the water cold as long I first fill it with ice.
The mouth is the perfect width so I can add big ice cubes or lemons/cucumbers.
I also love the handle on the lid! Great overall design!
I bring it to work and fill it up all day. I get so many compliments. I got it on sale and it looks like it's sold out. I wish they would bring it back again. I'd love to have an extra, just in case.

Love the Glass
I got this water bottle for going between my home, yoga and school. I usually attend classes and work as an Research Assistant in a lab. I love this water bottle, I drink a smoothie in the morning and then switch to water later in the day and the water taste great. I have dropped it before, but it did not break. The glass is pretty light, which I like because I already have a backpack full. The bottom is cushioned well. The only problem I have with it is that it doesn't hold that much water, but I did look at the Life Factory bottles they held about the same amount of water.

Love the idea, not the product.
I bought the blue version of this bottle and was super excited since it is visually appealing and has the Lululemon Manifesto printed on it. I used it often and was really careful with it. The one time I accidentally dropped it at the studio, on carpet, it shattered into a bunch of tiny pieces! This was upsetting because I do have other bottles that are glass with rubber sleeves by a different brand and this has never happened. The glass also caused a huge safety hazard at the studio since we practice barefoot. I loved the idea and love lululemon but was extremely disappointed by this product. I am out $30 when the other bottles I have are more affordable and more reliable.

Great - as long as you are careful!
I bought one of these several months ago, dropped it on the change room and it broke, shattering glass everywhere. I was upset and told myself I would never buy one again.
When I saw the newer ones, where the silicone sleeve completely covers the glass, I changed my mind and decided to pick up another one. I just don't like the taste of metal or plastic water bottles.
While I feel more secure with this type of sleeve, it's still something you just have to be careful with - it is glass after all. I just make sure to not drop it, and hopefully it will last.
For those complaining about the lid - just pay attention when you put it on. With my first bottle, it leaked a few times, but then I realized I wasn't paying attention and didn't put it on properly. If you look at the bottle, the lid will appear a bit crooked and will leak everywhere if put into a backpack or gym bag.
Ever since I've been paying attention to how I was putting it on - neither of my bottles have leaked.
A great product I will continue to buy!
