This has been my daily water bottle for weeks now and I cannot recommend this enough. The company itself is fantastic and I can personally say, this company really does their part in making wonderful useful everyday items. I used to use a water app on my phone to help me in drinking more water. It did not work as I would ignore the notifications. This bottle on the other hand is amazing! The visual aid of it sitting in front of me with the timeline works better than anything else I’ve tried. Love the wide mouth opening so that I can add ice and the drinking spout is on point because I don’t like most water bottle drink spouts. Would recommend this bottle 100%! Love it! Holds 2L of water, seals well, and the strap is great for carrying it into work without using an extra hand just for my water. The one main flaw is the straw. The straw does not stay up very well, and you can only take a short drink with the straw before it suctions to the bottom of the bottle and blocks out more water. You can do without the straw, but when it's full, I'm not keen on dumping a big container of water on myself. Great water bottle otherwise! Haven't had a leak-free water bottle of this size before, it's quite nice.

It is normal and harmless that there is a slight plastic odor when first use. just rinse the filter with a few ounces of water before using,then the odor will disappear.
