    Awesome BottleWe bought our first 42 for our daughter at her state swim meet and loved it. She swims and needs lots of water to keep hydrated. This bottle gives her enough water for a whole 2 1/2 to 3 hour practice. We bought her the other one before she went away to swim camp and she always had water ready to go and didn't run out. Anyone participating in any sport should buy the big 42 you won't be disappointed.

    • Polar Bottle ReplyHi Stacy,

      This makes us so happy! We use this bottle for precisely the same reason – fill it up once and you are set for an entire long workout. We hope you daughter enjoys camp. Feel free to send us photos (info at polarbottle dot com)! We love to see our bottles being put to good use.

      Thanks for the feedback and support.

Frequently Asked Quesetions


The Polar Bottle Big 42 is manufactured in our Boulder, CO headquarters with parts sourced from Denver, CO and Garden City, MO.

Polar Bottle products are made from PP, LDPE, HDPE, and Tritan™ plastics, which are free of harmful chemicals like BPA and Phthalates. To the furthest extent of current scientific knowledge, none of these plastics contain harmful chemicals that may leach into the liquid contained in the bottle. The well-being of our customers is of the highest priority to our company and plastic safety is an issue we take very seriously.

Polar Bottle water bottles have always been BPA and Phthalate Free. More about our Safe Plastic >> (LINK)



Our thermal testing has found that Big 42 will keep your drink cold more than twice as long as a standard single-wall, uninsulated bottle.

In order to maximize the effectiveness of the bottle, we recommend pre-freezing the water in the Big 42 before use. Fill your bottle halfway full with water and freeze overnight. The giant ice cube that results will keep your drink chilly for hours (do not fill the bottle more than half way before freezing, as the water must have room to expand as it freezes).


We have designed our products to be reusable and incredibly durable. Many of our customers are still happily using bottles they purchased in the mid-‘90s, when the Polar Bottle Sport was originally released. This is not an uncommon feat. However, when you decide it’s time to retire your Polar Bottle water bottle, they are completely recyclable. To recycle the bottle, simply separate the outer plastic bottle, foil liner and inner plastic bottle and recycle them separately. Or, if you prefer, send in your old bottle back to our warehouse and we would be happy to recycle it for you!

The bottle is also made in America from locally sourced parts. This allows us to minimize shipping costs and the environmental impact that goes along with them. The fact that our entire operation – from sales to production to shipping – takes place under one roof further reduces overhead, energy use, and environmental strain.


The Big 42 fits on large bike cages, like the TwoFish Quick Cage. We suggest measuring your frame to be sure it can accommodate this larger capacity bottle. Big 42 will not fit into most cup holders.
