    Thanks, backpack - lots of good information via those links. I'm liking this bottle the best.

    I purchased two new SIGG bottles this month (I lost one, and decided that having two would be easier because I clean my water bottle every day) and they both have the old coating. Darn. The store must have had them sitting around for a while.

    I came accross that link about Siggs bottle.

    I linked to the zrecommends website via the "Show us your bag" on Flicker.

    I liked the site and visited a while, plenty of good information.


    Their 2009 top pick for water bottle, plenty of options to choose from.

    keep in mind that should you choose to exchange, there's a strong chance you will not receive the same style bottle back.

    bpa concerns aside, there are so many good alternatives available that one can easily find an honest company to patronize.

    I never trusted Sigg...

    and prefer Klean Kanteen instead, wider mouth.

  • SIGG bottles: can exchange if manufactured before Aug '08

    Since a lot of forum members here mention having/using SIGG bottles, I thought I'd pass on crux of the email I got from ReusableBags.com, which is where I purchased my SIGG bottles from:

    Basically, the news broke that SIGG's old liner contains BPA, but has not been shown to leach BPA. However, the new EcoCare liner (manufactured after August 2008) does not contain BPA or any other harmful chemicals.

    This means that the old bottles are NOT unsafe, but you can still change them out for the new ones.

    If you have bottles with the old (shiny copper bronze) liner, you can get them exchanged for ones with the new (dull pale yellow) liner until October 31st, 2009 via SIGG: http://mysigg.com/bulletin/exchange_program.html

    Here is the page from ReusableBags that explains a lot:

    They also mention a possibility of exchanging them at your local Whole Foods, but I'd call to check first.
