Strengths:    Can fit big ice cubes through opening. Top seals tight. Valve is BIG.

Weaknesses:    None significant.

Bottom Line:   
The best bottle Specialized has ever made!

Specialized has always made the best bottles, and their designs just keep getting better. The Classic is great, though the lid sometimes will crack near the small-diameter valve. The Softop improves things nicely, with a more durable lid and BIG valve.

However, the Big Mouth is the best! The screw-top lid is much better, seals tighter, and allows the use of full-size ice cubes. The same Softop valve (read: BIG) is used, and the shape is perfect. Also, the newest models seem to impart less plastic taste on the contents - a big plus!

Strengths:    Big mouth makes for easy cleaning and ice-cubes fit through it. Also it is very durable!

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I love this bottle! Wouldn't want it any other way! Everyone should buy this product because it is a great price, and the big mouth makes is so effecient! I didn't buy a bottle for a long time, and I was really needing one. I first picked this bottle because it looked cool (I think simplicity is beautiful), but as I checked it out in the store I was pleased with the shape, easy grip, easy mouth piece, and the big mouth. I am surprised that any other bottle would be different!

Strengths:    Large opening with screw top
Soft rubber valve
Got it free when odering from specialized.com

Bottom Line:   
This is a better bottle than the standard cheapo. The large opening is great for ice-cubes and mixing sports drinks. It's also made with thicker plastic, so it holds up well.

Date Reviewed: June 6, 2001

Strengths:    Big opening is convenient for mixing powdered energy drinks; made out of good quality plastic; screw on top is durable and easy to open and close; large (24 oz.) bottle is shorter than traditional large size bottles, so it is easier to get into and out of the cage on a smaller frame.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
Best bottle out there, especially if you use the large size.
