sorry, chumley, you fail hard multiple ways
-that page is not reviewing the elite nanogelite bottle. I am.
he is comparing insulated to vacuum bottles and vacuum to vacuum.
I am comparing insulated to insulated bottles,
oh and btw none of the insulated bottles listed there use aerogel,
which is way better than any other insulation...just so ya know
-I don't drink tea, I use energy drinks, because you know, I ride
-I am comparing bottles you open with your teeth. bicycling bottles you
do not have to stop and twist some top off to get a drink. who the hell
wants to stop riding for anything ? I sure don't, and don't want to stop to
-all I care about is my drink going to ice before I am done riding. I don't care
about hot. I care about slush clogs.
-I am comparing the elite to polar. not stainless steel craptacular thermos things.
you see polar bottles for sale everywhere and that is all most riders know about.
well the elite nanogelite is far better than the polar at keeping warm things warm and
cold things cold, in the land of plastic bottles and bite/mouthpiece.
IF I was gonna ride past 5 hours in winter then i would lather all up with stainless steel
but srsly, this is about yer common bike ride with twin bottle cages riding
approx 4 hours or less when it is 10 degrees-to-30 degrees. and a beverage
with 60g carb/hour energy content being available just like it is in summer.
flowing from a plastic bottle
can I make it clearer ?
-if you are gonna rag on the elite nanogelite by throwing a completely unrelated web page link
up in my thread, then stay the heck out,
go get some real info, like I did just now by -riding with the bottles in the cold-
