I bought a pair last time these were up and I really enjoy them. It sounds like a lot of people just don't like the concept of a stainless steel water bottle. To each their own, I say.
However, if you were in the market for this and were considering a SIGG or a Klean Kanteen, get this instead. It's mouth is as wide as the Klean Kanteen's wide mouth so you're able to see inside the bottle very well during cleaning, there's no lining like a SIGG, and the lid is leak proof with a nice loop handle. As a bonus, it's a Stanley, so, it's kind of like an American tradition.
I do agree that if you're just going to be sitting on the computer while drinking, don't bother getting a stainless steel water bottle. If you hike like myself, though, or if you're just really rough on your stuff (like my wife), they're ideal. My Stanley has so many dings already and I only got it a few weeks ago. That's why I've kept the second one as a spare.
Overall, this is a great product if you're in the market for a stainless steel water bottle.
