Well, I’ve had the great opportunity to use these Polar Bottles for the past 6 months. I wanted to really give them some time to get some real use before I wrote anything about them. They have been on road trips, soccer fields, softball fields, lakes, rivers, boats, school, and just about every other place you can imagine and they are still holding strong.
If you have children you know how rough they can be on things. Luckily, the Polar Bottles are built to withstand the abuse of kids and thus have earned my seal of approval. This little bottles are absolutely great! My children have put them through the ringer and as I write this review I know that my daughter’s softball bag is being packed with her Polar Bottle for tonight’s practice.
They are dishwasher safe, which I love, and easy to keep clean. The real test was when my daughter left her bottle full of orange juice hidden under the seat of our van. We had searched high and low for it and when we finally found it we were in for a surprise. The contents of the bottle had turned from juice to some form of moldy sludge and smelled like a bad version of closet wine. I was sure that the bottle was going to be on its way to the landfill. I was wrong, dead wrong! The cleanup was simple and the great material that this bottle is made of did not hold the smell, color, or mildew that had me wrenching so violently just moments before I washed it.
I found that the insulation is sufficient for sporting events and afternoon trips and the double wall helps to make sure that the bottle does not sweat all over your bag while you are out there playing hard. There is not much that I can say to illustrate my satisfaction with this great product. I would recommend them for anybody on any budget as they are as affordable as functional and will be a great addition to any home.
Polar Bottle Thermaluxe
The same testing period was used for this great bottle. It had 6 months of abuse and use under its belt and is still going strong. My feeling about this bottle mirror those of the other great Polar Bottle products I tested.
The insulation of this bottle is worlds about the sport bottle and I was able to enjoy ice retention for nearly 24 hours while used in moderate temperatures (70-80F). I promise that this bottle will keep ice longer than it will take you to drink the contents and is good for another refill or two before the ice is gone.
The lid does take some getting used to and is not ideal for chugging. It will however provide you a steady flow of ice cold water until the last drop which is the better way to drink anyway. After all, good things come to those who wait.
I would put this bottle into the same category as the highest ranking vacuum sealed bottles on the market. You will not be disappointed.

For the price of these bottles I cannot find anything to complain about. They are really a great product. Thy take a beating, clean up easy, and preform as advertised. What else could I ask for?
I give the Polar Bottle Insulated Sport of any size and the Thermaluxe Insulated Bottle a solid 5 stars.
