    Several years ago I bought this bottle from Eddie Bauer. I have been using it everyday since. I can’t say it keeps the water colder longer but the size, weight, and top make it perfect. I have recently learned I can freeze it. Great. I have also bought 7 more from the color series to give away to friends and family.

    Bottle looks ok (Havent used it yet) although packaging was not good…..should be using a box instead of a plastic bag to ship items that can be crushed. Also was missing the Zipstream cap I paid extra for!!….My negative review is purely based on shipping and order handling due to the missing item. No apology from customer service when I called, lets hope I receive my missing caps! I’ll update my review if I see any change.

      Hi Darren,

      Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. We will get this fixed for you.

      First of all, we will send you a new cap immediately if you have not received it yet. Secondly, if there was any damage to the bottle we will of course replace that as well. Please feel free to reach out to me directly about this (addie at polarbottle dot com).

      Secondly, we decided to use the bag instead of the box to reduce our overall material waste. It’s part of an ongoing effort to be more sustainable. We do have some products, like our stainless steel bottle, that need to be shipped in a box. However, we’ve found that the majority of our bottles are safe to ship in a bag. Again, we will of course replace any product that is damaged in shipping.

      Thank you again for this review and I look forward to hearing from you,

    I have a 24 oz insulated bottle and it does not keep the water any cooler than a standard water bottle.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Polar Bottle Sport 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.

Yes, the Polar Bottle sport is dishwasher and freezer safe.

Our thermal testing has found that, the Polar Bottle Sport will easily 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 a Polar Bottle 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 24oz and 20oz fit in standard bike cages. We suggest measuring your frame to determine which size fits best with your bike. The 20oz often works better on smaller frames. The 12oz Sport may fit a child-sized bike cage, but is too small for most adults.
