I have only had this bottle for about two months, and I use it only in daylight hours and am not in any way rough handling it. In comparison to the previous bottle, the bottle itself is fine, it's the lid that's the difference. When I first got the bottle I remarked to my wife that the lid appeared to be a lot weaker than on the previous bottle, and sure enough, the folding lid broke, and now, free from its strap, is subject to losing, which would then render the whole bottle useless.
Finally, the bottle is fine, it's the lid that needs attention. My previous bottle had a much stronger lid, colour blue.
In closing I am not happy with the product, and would appreciate a replacement if possible, exactly the same style, and I am happy to pay extra so long as it's a good quality lid, but NOT a screw lid.
