I’m a Stanley Quencher tremendous fan. My pals, household, colleagues and anybody I’ve spent greater than 5 minutes with within the few months because it made a splash in my life may have heard me discuss it. It’s my favorite subject of dialog. I like the large capability, all the time having water readily available and the convenience of ingesting whereas I’m typing at my desk.
Naturally, I used to be intrigued by the thought of Owala. “Higher than Stanley” – it was pitched to me. May this be true? May something be higher than my valuable lilac-hued water container?
A direct plus level in Owala’s camp is that the bottle is leakproof. I’ve put this to the check and it doesn’t spill or coat my whole bag in water – not like the Stanley the place I’ll discover the contents dripping down my leg once I’m out and about. That is right down to the built-in straw, making it a much more sensible various if you’re going from workplace to house by way of the health club.
But the Stanley is a standing merchandise, it’s designed to be held and confirmed off. The Owala bottle just isn’t fairly as engaging. It has a playful colourway however feels extra childlike than the smooth pastel hues of its competitor.
There’s not a lot within the capability of the Owala I’ve been testing: 1.185L vs Stanley’s 1.2L, nonetheless, it feels heavier – one thing to think about when the Stanley is already cumbersome. What’s extra, it doesn’t slot in a cup holder. Not a lot of a difficulty as you’ll be able to stash in a bag, however not best on a treadmill (I learnt the exhausting manner).
The leakproof nature is right down to a lid, sealed with a clip and opened with a button. This implies it’s not able to drink the second that thirst hits and does imply that there’s the potential of it breaking and rendering the bottle unusable – this hasn’t occurred, and it does really feel sturdy, however the probability is there.
For the laziest amongst us, you’ll be able to fill the Owala with out unscrewing the lid, by means of the chug gap. Good and helpful!
So, is all of the above sufficient to transform a staunch Stanaholic? Effectively, for sheer ease in portability, since I made the swap to Owala, my Stanley hasn’t made it off my dish-drying rack. Nuff stated?
