Pure Focus Glass Water Bottle
wish i read the reviews before hand...
I ordered this product quite some time ago and I have not been able to use it more than once. As advertised, I was under the impression that this would be a spill proof water bottle. Unfortunately, the first time I used it, my purse was lined with water. My books, papers, and computer were wet. I do not recommend this water bottle. Yes, the other reviews are true, if you try to keep it upright it is a little better, but that seems a little unreasonable to me. I wish I would have read the reviews before hand. It would have saved me all the hassle!

I have been using this water bottle for about a month now. I was a little afraid of getting a glass bottle but this has been surprisingly robust. I am careful with it, but the rubber on the bottom is really thick and so far I have had no trouble. The only trouble I have had is the seal on the inside of the lid keeps coming out. Sometimes when I go to take a drink it is on the top of the bottle where I am drinking and not on the inside of the lid where it is suppose to be. Despite this, I have not had it leak in my bag yet (but I am careful to keep it upright). I got the pink colour and think it looks super cute. Overall it is a good bottle and I feel better drinking out of glass.

I wanted to love this and covet the soft sorbet-like yellow colour. The problem is that the lid leaks. There is a rubber seal but this doesn't seem to prevent water from getting trapped in the grooves in the lid and then spilling out on the sides of the bottle when it's closed. I wanted something that I could seal and throw in my bag - this isn't it. If you kept the bottle upright all the time or had the lid off (for drinking) anytime you tip it, it might be ok. But that's not practical so this doesn't work for me.
I have taken it back for a refund, but buyer beware.

Great luck with Pure Focus Water Bottle
I have to admit I was skeptical about purchasing this water bottle after reading the reviews, but wanted a glass bottle for cycling. I just wanted to say that while riding at a quick pace, I hit a huge bump and the bottle flew out of my bottle holder, hit the ground and rolled about 10 metres. A few curse words came to mind, but couldn't believe it when I retrieved it and found that it had a slight dent in the plastic near the handle, and everything else totally intact. I know the luck of the draw must have played a part, but I was impressed! It's still going strong after a month of daily use.

I love it :)
Just bought this bottle after a few weeks of contemplating - I figured at $30 it's a bit of a splurge but it was too cute to resist. I absolutely love it! It's super cute (I have the light pink color which is almost tie-dye) and I've already received tons of complements. The glass actually makes the water taste more pure, no harmful chemicals!! The mouthpiece is wide enough to wash the bottle but still easy to drink out of. I'm cautious of dropping it and leave in the locker when doing cardio and other "intense" workouts. It's more of a stylish vs. functional water bottle but I def recommend it!!!

Bought this water bottle two months ago. I loved it. I took it with me everywhere, to the gym, yoga, and work. For the first month, I was hand washing it and everything was fine. A month ago I went into Lulu to buy shorts and I asked if I could wash my water bottle in the dish washer. She said it can be washed in the dish washer. So the next time I needed to wash it thats what I did. After that it was never the same. My water bottle leaks all over everything. Even when driving and its in the cup holder its leaking all over my car. There are no cracks, it comes from the lid. The only thing I can think of is that the rubber in the cap came out when I washed it in the dish washer and now the water bottle is useless. Should have just kept on hand washing it. Im super bummed because I used it so often and I just wasted $30 only to have used it for one month. Im super disappointed. Should be better quality than this.

Love/Hate this temperamental water bottle
I absolutely loved my first water bottle like this and it is still in tact. It was one of the one's with the full covering sleeve. I use it at work all the time and have had no issues with it.
Unfortunately the new design is not so great. I am now on my 3rd water bottle in 4 weeks. The first one fell over, not off of anything, just fell over and cracked right around the bottom. The second one shattered from the cold. I bought another one today and I'm hoping that it lasts longer than the last two.
I don't mind spending money on products that last, but this is getting ridiculous...

Pretty but extremely delicate
I got this a month or so ago, and was completely in love with the look of the water bottle. I also loved that it was glass (no chemicals). On the downside, the wide open mouth makes it hard to drink without spilling (especially when on the move). Last night a friend knocked it off a low height desk and it cracked :(. The sleeve was not enough to protect it, and although I understood it was glass I wasn't expecting it to crack that easily. I'm extremely disappointed and unwilling to spend another 30$ on a completely new water bottle, and they do not sell parts separately (which they totally should because you could change up sleeve colors and such!) Overall, I guess I expected a $30 water bottle to last longer, so if you're clumsy - avoid!

Not made for Canadian Winters
Loved the look & feel of this water bottle! Unfortunately , since I tend to leave my water bottles in the car occasionally (especially with skiing in the winter) this one did not fair too well with the -15 C temperatures we had. Picked it up and the glass was shattered. There was NO water inside it that would have expanded and made the glass crack . Luckily with the cover it was contained.
So for anyone looking to buy this water bottle... don't leave it in the car in cold temperatures!
