For the past few weeks I’ve been using these Super Sparrow water bottles after they dropped into Wales. Super Sparrow was founded in 2015 with the aim of providing people with the ability to easily enjoy both hot and cold drinks and always stay hydrated on-the-go.
The bottles I chose to test were a 500ml Sports water bottle in Lime, a 750ml Flask in Lava red and a 1 litre Sea Blue Insulated bottle. These are easily available on Amazon and there’s a vast array of colours to choose from.
500ml Sports bottle
Firstly, this bottle looks quality rather than your bog standard water bottle. It’s made from 100% toxin free US imported tritan co-polyester plastic that is safe to your body and environmentally friendly.
There’s a handy one finger lockable lid that covers the mouth piece so there’s never any worries about dirt getting in your mouth.
This one also had a handy strap too. The flow of water isn’t a trickle either so you know you’re getting a good drink every time.
On the whole I know bottle are bottles but this one kind of stands out. It looks great, there’s a good flow and the protective lid is a great feature to ensure your drink stays clean.
The Flask ouzed quality from the outset. Its made of BPA-free phthalate-free18/8 food-grade stainless steel which provides pure taste with no metal taste at all.
Its double walled vacuum insulation which helps to keep drinks cold up to 24 hours or hot up to 12 no matter what temperature outside, now that is a statement I was eager to try out. I can confirm this flask kept hot drinks drinkable 12 hours later which is a great feat. After 24 hours my coffee was luke warm which goes to show how good this marvel is.
Again there’s a vast array of snazzy colours to choose from. The finish is supposed to be anti slip so there’s never a chance of dropping it. If you do drop it, there’s a handy rubber sleeve that fits on the bottle end of the Flask which should prevent dents.
This flask is a fantastic piece of kit that will definately be getting used on some of my biking and hiking trips.
1 litre Insulated Water Bottle
Basically this is a step up from the Flask. I opted for the 1 litre version so I could see how the largest capacity bottle handled the fluids. The stainless steel body ensure the statement that it will maintain hot liquid warm for up to 12 hours, and that is so true. This is the first flask I’ve used that does actually keep drinks hot for a longer period of time. An added bonus for this one is the neoprene sleeve and lanyard. The sleeve will obviously keep the cold air from the flask during colder days. The bottle comes with two different types of mouthpiece, one for cold drinks and the other for hot drinks. This is available in over 12 colors just like the others.
