Opinions: Polar bottle vs. Elite Nanogelite bottle vs. ???

I've been using Polar bottles since they looked like this.


I switched to the new Polar bottles last spring. I'm not as pleased with them as the old style.
So, does anyone have any experience with the Elite bottle? Does it work as well? Does it leak? Is it easy to squeeze when riding? For the price it should be MUCH better than the Polar bottle.

I dunno, but I know whatcha mean

a polar bottle is ok, but becomes hard to squeeze.... well before it freezes inside


the elite only holds a paltry 500ml...that is 16.9 oz.

jeeze i use 2 - 24 oz polars on my winter rides, usually
more.

Thanks for the info. I didn't read that far down the page on the Elite website. Gotta be 24 oz or I'm not interested.



So who makes a good 24 oz insulated water bottle?

24oz and $2.00. You want cold? Freeze it half full laying on it's side.
