Review

The Guyot Designs (GD) stainless steel water bottle is for those who want a very durable, high quality and safe water bottle. The steel walls are thicker than most stainless steel walls found in water bottles. This makes them a little heavier than the average bottle, but certainly more durable. Their high quality lids are made of glass enforced nylon and attach nicely to the top of the bottle with sterling climbing rope. The rope can be adjusted with an allen wrench which is included. Unlike most stainless steel water bottles which are made with 18/8 food grade stainless steel, GD are made with 18/10 surgical grade stainless steel. The GD bottle comes in four different designs and sizes: Standard (38oz), Backpacker (32oz), Commuter (24oz), and Shorty (24oz). GD are one of the larger stainless steel water bottles in terms of width (See Specifications).
The GD water bottle can have a diameter as wide as 3.7 inches making them somewhat bulky. This extra width in the bottle may also contribute to making them a little difficult to grasp. The base of The Commuter model only has a diameter of 2.6” making it more manageable to hold and also allows it to fit most car cup holders. All other models are too big to fit a bike water bottle cage or the average car cup holder. GD has the widest mouth I have seen to date at 2”. The wide mouth makes the bottle very easy to clean and insert ice cubes, but at the same time this extra-wideness makes it easy to spill when drinking. It should be mentioned, though, that spilling can be avoided by using the Splashguard. The Splashguard is an accessory that rests inside the lip of the mouth and has a narrow opening. GD also makes some very cool accessories such as The Gription which makes them easier to handle. Lastly, it should be noted that the Guyot Designs is designed to work with most water filters.
