When I got this water jug I was very excited to give it a run for its money. I am active in Crossfit and my waterbottles need to be able to withstand being handled a bit more rough than average. The size was great- allowed pleanty of room for both ice and water. However after a little more than a week a the gym the bottle splt. If you are someon who is not extra hard on their water jugs then this may be great for you.
