Glass Water Bottles: Takeya Classic Glass Water Bottle

How breakable are the new glass water bottles? Can you take them outdoors, or are they only for the office?

A:Takeya, a pioneer in glass water bottles for a few years now, has versions in 16, 18, and 22 ounces. The 22-ounce version weighs 17 ounces and costs $20. A grippy silicone jacket protects the French-made glass container within, and if the bottle gets a little funky, you can throw the whole shebang in the dishwasher to return it to crystal clear. It has a loop for hooking to a ‘biner on your pack, though online reviewers say that because of its weight and simple screw cap, it’s probably more office-y than outdoorsy.
