Need a little help

Several years ago I bought a stainless steel water bottle at Walmart that had the necked down area where the water bottle cage held it. It is the size of a large water bottle and the same shape with the necked down area part way up, so it is securely held in the cage.

Does anyone know where I can get one like that with that shape?

A Google search will yield a few....

Although by careful, aluminum does leech. To counteract that, a lot of AL bottles are lined with plastic to prevent leeching, only problem is now they're leeching plastic.

And even BPA-free bottles leech a concerning amount of chemicals into our water (we've all gotten that plastic taste before... gross).

In another thread, a poster mentioned switching to polypropylene bottles. They seem quite legitimate and are even certified by the FDA.

Intrigued, I will probably give them a try myself.
