Review: Glasstic Shatterproof Water Bottle

Enjoy great tasting water in a pure glass water bottle you can confidently take anywhere. Sleek, worry-free, clean, green, reusable...don't settle for silicone covered glass bottles that easily break and make a dangerous mess when they are dropped, use Glasstic Glass Water Bottles as your worry free, non-toxic, eco-friendly alternative to metal, plastic or worrisome glass bottles with rubber sleeves.
The BPA/BPS Free protective shell securely protects the inner glass bottle while also providing a condensation free surface that provides some insulation and is easy to grip. Glasstic is perfect for essential oils, hot and cold teas, fruit infused waters, etc...because of this unique design. We think of it as the 'purity of glass with the portability of plastic'. 
  • 16oz pure glass bottle
  • BPA/BPS Free protective outer shell
  • Lockable, leak-free flip cap with easy carry handle
  • 3rd party tested to ensure safety and durability

  • Although our bottle resists most drops, it safely contains any broken glass inside the protective shell. Please use appropriate caution.
  • If glass bottle breaks or cracks, dispose of immediately and contact us for a FREE replacement.

Our Thoughts:
I break all things glass. Over the years I've broken no less than 30 drinking glasses and countless jars.  At home, all our drinking glasses have been replaced with plastic because, well, I've broken all the others. We even have a running joke up at our cabin - a family member brought me a set of plastic children's glasses to use there so I wouldn't break the glass glasses. (And I use them!)

I am aware of the benefits of glass over plastic for drinking, but when my immediate safety and the safety of others is concerned, I choose plastic. LOL.   Until now.

I gotta say, these Glasstic water bottles are pretty cool. Really.  What's really interesting is the way they are constructed - the whole water bottle comes apart - you have a locking lid, a bottom, the outer plastic shell, and a glass insert, all of which is easily washable.  This way, if you drop it, the plastic (BPA-free!) absorbs the impact and the glass remains intact.  However, if it does somehow break . . . the glass is completely contained inside the plastic shell, so no worries about cleaning up or stepping on broken glass.

Glasstic offers both a printed plastic shell and a clear one with a variety of decorative inserts.  They have a ton of different insert designs to choose from! You can choose from 5 packs for $5, or purchase individual designs for $2. I think this 5 pack's my favorite:

The way the bottle is constructed, you can even make your own decorative inserts to use. Check out their ideas here:

The inserts are very easy to use - you just take apart the bottle, roll up an insert and well, simply insert it into the plastic shell where it unfurls. 

You are able to make some minor adjustments to get the insert perfectly aligned if you wish, then reassemble your water bottle, fill, and go! They advertise the bottles fit most vehicle drink holders, and that's true.  I have two sizes of drink holders in the center console of my Jeep, and it fits perfectly in the smaller one.

The water bottle has a handle on the top lid, but they do offer shoulder straps to make them even more portable, something I might just take advantage of since I like to have both my hands free when out and about, especially when trying to push my son's stroller and walk the dog at the same time.

Glasstic offers free replacement if the glass does somehow break, and I really appreciate they also offer all replacement parts for sale should you need them.  We have many reusable eating/drinking products we like, but if something breaks, we're left having to purchase a whole new assembly because most companies do not offer replacement parts.

I do want to note, if you're making the switch from plastic to glass, these glass water bottles are heavier than you'd think when full - just takes a little getting used to. :)

LOVE these bottles.  Highly recommend!
