    "Leak Proof" Water Bottle?

    Can anyone recommend a 24 oz wide mouth water bottle that doesn't leak when on the down tube or squeezed? Every one I've tried leaks around the cap threads, and the spout. Doens't matter for water, but the mix bottle gets sticky and messy.

    Thanks,
    DP

    To my knowledge they don't exist! Seems like a simple enough thing, but they all seem to leak to some degree. I went with the 33 oz zefal wide mouths and they are not too bad and they give you a lot of capacity.

    I've had good luck with the Polar water bottles. They're well constructed and do keep the liquid cooler longer. On sale at Nashbar for $5.99:
